This beautiful Sikh wedding included a Haldi ceremony, in which the bride and groom are covered in turmeric paste, this is believed to bring prosperity and good luck. After planning their wedding for 2 years, Harry & Reema were unfortunately met with the uncertainty of COVID. So, after months of sleepless nights, they decided to move forward with a more intimate day. We are just loving the colourful and vibrant vibes, including the incredible cake, which looks as though it has stepped right out of a Disney movie! Oh, and Reema’s incredible bridal trainers with bright pink sparkles? Yes please. Let us also take a moment to appreciate their pet pug. No seriously, please look. That outfit. Amazing.
Haldi ceremony for colourful and vibrant Sikh wedding
After planning our dream wedding for 2 years, and thinking of every tiny detail, we were met with uncertainty due to COVID. Our 200 person wedding, (which was due to take place in a Trafalgar Square) was ultimately rearranged so many times we decided to focus on what made us really happy. Having our closest family and friends to celebrate the love we have for each other.
Seeing my parents face when I wore my traditional bridal outfit. Being an Advertising Executive with tattoos and piercings, I thought I would never fit into the ‘Indian bride’ mould. But, something happened when I wore my beautiful traditional Lengha and walked out in front of my parents just made them both cry. It was a memory I will cherish forever. Even more so, my husbands jaw dropped!
Just relax and enjoy the moment. I was THAT Bride when I had a big wedding planned. Will people enjoy it? Will it run on time? Every tiny detail felt like bricks on my shoulders. When it had to change I let it go. I focused on what people would remember, and what would make us happy. I got to experience the moment, and get those butterflies, I remember every moment of it instead of being just a blur.
Peep the look on Harry’s face when he sees his bride for the first time - so beautiful!
We had spent a lot of time researching our suppliers and visiting them at various weddings fairs. We booked a lot of them for our much larger wedding. However, what really showcased humanity was how adaptable and helpful they all were when things needed to change. They put us first and ensured they provided us with ease for the best possible experience.
