Punjabi Hindu Fusion Wedding

Oh heyyy – I’m finally back to blogging after a week or so away. I had the bloody flu for 3 weeks, and it simply wouldn’t go away. I’m feeling a lot better, looking forward to getting back to the gym and blogging more fusion weddings of course! I’ve been looking forward to sharing the wedding of  Jin and Atul  who got married on 19th September at the spectacular Heath House in Tean, Staffordshire. I just want to add that Jin’s lengha (Indian wedding dress) is absolutely incredible and one of my favourites shared on the blog so far.

Jin grew up in the town of Ipoh and Malaysia, and came to Scotland to complete her pharmacy training. Atul grew up in England, but his parents are from India. They both now work for the NHS and they met when they worked together in the Scottish Borders. Atul is a medical registrar and Jin is a pharmacist. Atul plucked up the courage to ask Jin out after she left the hospital to work elsewhere! They both now live in Edinburgh.

Atul proposed on top of Blackford Hill looking over the spectacular Edinburgh skyline; this was the location of their first date. It was a beautiful Autumn day and the sun was shining!

Wedding planning

“We arranged the wedding near where Atul grew up. It was challenging and at times stressful to plan a wedding from over 200 miles away but we were very lucky to have found such great and reliable suppliers. We found them on wedding blogs or at local smaller wedding fairs. The Heath House was the third venue we visited. It was so beautiful and full of character with lovely grounds and plenty of space. When we met Justin and Sophie, the owners of the house we knew it was where we wanted to get married. They were so welcoming and genuinely lovely!”

“It was challenging to learn about the many different steps and requirements of a Punjabi wedding! Jin didn’t understand why certain things needed to be done, I’m not even sure Atul did! We did it in the end to please the parents. Jin was thankful that her parents were so obliging and just went along with things! We soon realised that a wedding is much more than just what we wanted but also about keeping everyone happy!”

“We had a minute by minute itinerary of the complicated plan for the day, which involved a Hindu ceremony in the morning and civil ceremony in the afternoon. Most unusually for an Indian wedding day, everything ran according to time!  We were so lucky with the weather on the day- a gorgeous sunny and warm September day. It was altogether a fun day and the most important thing was that we were married! All our guests had a great time!”

    Wow all the pictures are beautiful!! They’re advice was really great, it can be overwhelming with two different cultures/traditions but when you realize you’re doing it out of respect for the person you love it really puts it into perspective.
