I’m really excited to share Soniya and Marcel’s wedding on the blog especially after I featured their engagement shoot, which you can see here. Beautiful Soniya is a Hindu girl from Nepal who met, Christian, Marcel from Germany in his home country. She tells us about how they met and their proposal story on their engagement shoot post.
Anna Campbell, a name that you associate with some of the most beautiful wedding dresses out there. I personally adore her because her designs are different, they embrace lace, glamour and intricate detail. The embellished dresses remind me of the detail found on asian bridal wear but in a more relaxed, bohemian way.
Finally, I get to share a wedding that has a Ghanian bride or groom on the blog. Joesephine and Keith are both from Baltimore and they met online in Feburary 2010. Their multicultural wedding was held at the Bavarian Inn Mansion in Shepherdstown, West Virginia shared with 185 of their close family and friends.
Happy New Year my lovely readers! As you may have noticed, I’ve also been enjoying the festive period and was away from my macbook for a week. I did have intentions of getting as much done as I could but if I’m honest, seeing my friends and family over Christmas became the priority and I enjoyed it thoroughly.
Demi and Vinay met on eHarmony and married on 28 May 2016. They had 300 for the wedding ceremony and 120 for the actual reception. For the Hindu ceremony in the morning, the couple wore traditional Indian white and red wedding outfits. A beautiful lengha for Demi and a sherwani for Vinay. Then for the evening, they switched clothes so Demi could wear a traditional Japanese dress called a kimono while Vinay wore a suit.
I’ve been sharing many fusion and multicultural Hindu weddings on the blog lately, and this lovely wedding just contributes to it too. Anay is Hindu, from Frankfort, IL and Callie is Catholic, from Madison, WI. They first met at work. Callie started at Huron Consulting Group in 2011 and within her first month was assigned to a new project at Stanford Hospital & Clinics. Little did she know that, Anay, one of her colleagues on the project, would become the love of her life!
Kenny is an Englishman from Bournemouth and Gita was from London, from a Mauritian/Irish background. At the time of the wedding they had just bought their house together just outside the New Forest. Kenny was brought up in the Christian traditions, but it not a strict follower. Gita was brought up in Hindu and Catholic traditions and tends to follow Hinduism culturally and spiritually. Kenny was a friend of Gita’s brother who lived in the same apartment block in Bournemouth. She ran into Kenny some years ago when visiting her brother from London and that’s how they met.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! I’m currently watching Home Alone 2 as I write this post. It’s definitely my favourite Christmas movie and got me in the mood for thinking about Christmas presents. I always find that buying for guys is so much harder than buying for any of my female friends or family. Which is why I put together this gift guide for him, choosing some of my favourite present ideas.
Starting the week, we have a wedding planned by Louise Perry Weddings who tells us all about planning Rohit and Alice’s big day. This wedding took place at the brides parents home, near Milton Keynes in a stunning marquee by their lake. Alice is Christian and Rohit is Hindu so they incorporated both faiths in the ceremony.
