Everyone loves an outfit change – especially from a traditional wedding dress to a mint green saree. Kreya’s two gorgeous garments had us utterly obsessed. The photos by Recommended supplier Megan Donati Photography as well as the videography by Recommended supplier Capturedit Films encapsulated the joy, culture, family and love beautifully. The ceremony saw a cultural fusion. It began with a traditional civil ceremony with a religious Christian blessing, and then an incorporation of South Asian practices. Jesh presented Kreya with the most stunning Thali necklace, and the wedding party blessed their marriage. Kreya’s change to a mint green saree mid-way was a tip of the hat to their South Asian culture. Talk about some magical multicultural moments! The glorious purple and green colour scheme is to die for, and the elegant charm of the venue, The Petersham Hotel in Richmond, tied in perfectly.
If you’re a fan of beautiful blends of culture, a mint green saree, puppies, harps and an abundance of love, then keep on scrolling!
Beautiful mint green saree at multicultural wedding - there wasn't a dry eye in the house!
I decided to change into a South Asian mint green saree to represent our culture. There was also a moment in the day when Jesh placed a thaali (a. necklace which is common in South Asian culture) on my neck, which was blessed by the Pastor. I really loved fusing different aspects of different wedding ceremonies.
The Petersham Hotel in Richmond
Being able to get married in Richmond amongst our loved ones was a big deal. We spent a lot of time in Richmond together and this was where we also got engaged. I loved that we fused a traditional civil ceremony with a religious Christian blessing. Then, the thaali necklace is placed on the bride's neck (which is from South Asian Culture). Our puppy's presence on our big day felt amazing as he is also a member of our small family.
Making The Day
Jesh and Kreya gave some great advice. "Don't leave it to yourself to plan everything." And we couldn't agree more! Luckily for the newlyweds, suppliers were on hand to ensure the day went as beautifully and smoothly as possible. Recommended supplier Shropshire Petals provided some fantastic biodegradable confetti. In terms of beauty, Recommended supplier Michelle Morris Hair and Makeup did a gorgeous job on gorgeous Kreya. She accentuated her statement mint green saree with neutral-toned makeup and elegant hair styling.
For Jesh, his favourite moment was musical. We had liaised with our harpist Gina a number of times to play some music for us. She especially learned two songs to play as the bride walked down the aisle. She was absolutely fantastic. For Kreya, it was walking down the aisle and seeing my husband be getting emotional and teary-eyed. He denies this but promised me before that he would never get emotional. We also have to give a special mention to our puppy Logan (who did not have a clue what was going on during the day!).
