Ok, seriously, this wedding might just eat up the rest of your day. In the best possible way of course. Because it totally had me in a trance for more time than I care to admit. It’s two absolutely breathtaking celebrations of this gorgeous couples’ union captured by Adrienne Gunde, and when I say this wedding has moved to the tippy top of my favorites list, I am dead serious. See why here.
From the Bride…After Nevin proposed to me atop Hampstead Heath overlooking the city of London, we began thinking about what type of wedding we wanted to have. We knew we wanted to include aspects of both of our cultures (Indian and British/American), while making sure that it was a fun and memorable event for the guests. We had both a Hindu ceremony and a secular wedding ceremony. After making the decision to have two ceremonies, our theme developed into a merging of the two cultures into one fun-filled day of celebrating. We chose elephants as a motif, as Nevin rode into the Hindu ceremony on an elephant. To that end, we included elephant salt and pepper shakers and elephant escort card holders. We also wanted to incorporate the bright colors of Indian weddings throughout the entire day, so we had bright florals and bright menus and programs.
We had two meals: an English tea, complete with scones and tea sandwiches, and an Indian buffet dinner. Overall, we had an amazing day that we felt reflected our cultures and our personalities perfectly!
