Get ready for all the colour and glorious outfits at this Punjabi wedding! Due to the pandemic, Simi & Savi were able to truly focus on specific parts of their day, such as their outfits and incredible food. Surrounded by close friends & family, their special day was incredibly intimate and filled with love. The vibe of their day was incredibly stripped back and clean, stepping away from the traditional style of a Punjabi wedding. We absolutely adore the deep blue colour of Savi’s outfit compared to the light pastel hue of Simi’s bespoke Lehengha. This whole day is so visually pleasing! A huge thank you to Recommended Supplier Miss Gen Photography for the captures.
Punjabi wedding complete with bespoke Lehengha
Doing our 'Laavaa Phere’ was a favourite moment. It is where we walk around our Holybook 4 times. The Laava are four hymns, which symbolise the everlasting union between man and woman. It was a really special, spiritual moment.
I always dreamed of wearing an alternative colour than red, which is traditionally associated with Indian Weddings. I did my bridal shopping via WhatsApp video call with boutiques in India during the pandemic. When I saw my bridal lehengha, I fell in love. I just knew it was the one and that feeling is something else. Whilst sourcing was by no means traditional, it made the experience even more memorable.
We chose our suppliers mainly through contacts in our family and word of mouth. As we organised our wedding during the lockdown, we had to be very fluid with what we could achieve in the space we had. That being said, everything worked out perfectly despite the restrictions.
How stunning is the backdrop to this incredible day? The Guru Nanak Darbar is simply gorgeous!
Do not stress! Easier said than done, I know. But honestly, the stress of arranging a wedding almost took the fun out of everything. Also, get friends and family involved in the planning process, it really helps!
