Rahima and Maz's Indian wedding was originally supposed to be a large event including hundreds of family and friends. But, after postponing four times due to Covid they decided to dial it down to just 15 people. They were left with an intimate celebration that truly felt about them and their love. Rahima wore a pastel-coloured Bengali wedding dress and Maz a gold jacket. Together they couldn't be happier, especially with the wonderful captures by, Recommended supplier, Lewis Membery.

The intimate nature of our wedding made our day unique. It was a world away from a typical big Asian wedding which is usually all about the guests. We truly feel the day was ours.

Rahima & Maz

Most Bengali brides prefer to wear a red Banarasi saree embellished with gold details or embroidery to match their gold jewellery. But not Rahima. She wore the most beautiful yellow, pink and mint Bengali wedding dress with a glistening gold thread design. She accessorised it with a necklace and headpiece and looked, a vision stood my Maz's side.

Rahima and Maz's favourite moment was saying their vows and the sermon given by their Sheik/Imam.

We had to be very flexible due to Covid. Thankfully a lot of the suppliers we used were our first choices and were able to accommodate our date changes. They were all overjoyed our wedding was still going ahead and couldn't wait to help us in any way they could.

Rahima & Maz

I absolutely love the intricate threadwork on Rahima's Bengali wedding dress and veil. The geometric design reminds me of honey, perfect for the sweetest of couples.
