Dipesh & Jyotika were married in a beautiful and intimate Hindu ceremony. Due to the pandemic, their wedding was reduced to 15 people from 400! But did that stop them? No way. Reorganising and moving all plans within 24 hours, they were adamant their day was going ahead, with no questions asked. Jyotika looked absolutely stunning in a cream and golden two piece, and within her Henna, you may just spot Dipesh’s name. How romantic is that? As Jyotika said, a traditional Hindu ceremony is usually incredibly busy, but you can feel all the love from this intimate wedding. Once again, the perfect example of a small celebration giving you all you could need, and a little more.
Intimate & vibrant Hindu ceremony with modern styled Henna
A Hindu ceremony & wedding is meant to be big! Due to COVID, we reduced from 400 people to only 15 - but this made it more special. It took away any formalities and helped us to have a more intimate wedding with loved ones.
Our decor by Creative Feather stole the show and created a whole atmosphere for the venue. We were given this venue last minute, and it was not in best condition due to renovation work. The decor company was able to take away the eyesore and create something out of a fairytale. They were also able to adapt the decor to fit a smaller venue last minute.
Our favourite moment was playing a traditional Hindu game at the end of the wedding! In a ritual called Mangal Fera, the bride and groom walk around the fire four times (each a symbol of the four ashrams of life), praying and exchanging vows of duty, love, fidelity, and respect. The priest directs family members to make offerings into the fire.
We absolutely love the florals within this wedding - the pastels mixed with some real pops of colour work perfectly against the white background.
Do the wedding how you as a couple want it! Outside influences can make you doubt your own choices. Make sure you communicate as a couple, and hold strong ground on how you want your big day to go. Keep it simple and enjoy!
A Hindu ceremony really does bring all the colour, and we’re so here for it. Take a look at this Botanical Hindu wedding at Sefton Park, which is truly the stuff dreams are made of. Or how about this at The Lost Orangery? Honestly, we’ve only just about picked our jaws up from the floor after this one…
