From the wine bridesmaid dresses to the beautifully vibrant florals, to the incredible venue that is Recommended Supplier, Pennard House, Payal & Tom’s wedding is just… *chefs kiss*. Focusing on both cultures coming together through small details, they’ve totally nailed it. The bride’s Lengha was created using her mother’s wedding sari, and the groom’s mother sewed blankets for each guest. Recommended Supplier, Linus Moran Photography, was also on hand to capture everything so perfectly. We suggest you take a moment to take in the incredible day that is Payal & Tom’s wedding… it’s a serious feast for the eyes! 

Wine bridesmaid dresses for multicultural wedding

Our focus was on both our cultures coming together through the small details! This began with the initial invites through to the stationery on the day. We included the rose, shamrock and lotus to represent our cultures coming together. The wedding breakfast tables were named after the birthplace of our parents and grandparents, incorporating this playfully into an ‘around the world’ theme. We were so excited to celebrate our special day and also wanted to include our guests in our celebrations. We had no airs and graces, and encouraged everyone to get involved whenever they could!

We spoke with each supplier, as the personal connection was key. Being a spring wedding, we incorporated seasonal florals during the day. While blending into a brighter, Indian palette in the evening. Our florists, Wren & May pulled this off spectacularly. Wild Fork West did a great job of curating a food menu individual to us. We wanted "in the moment" pictures and Linus's style matched this perfectly. With two ceremonies in one day, Ali and Seenal were brilliant and available to help throughout. We roped in the family - MakesbyMeg to design our fabulous personalised stationery.


Our theme was quite a combination of things, which somehow our suppliers and venue pulled off! We wanted to incorporate our mixed heritage (Irish, Indian and English) the season (Spring), the regional theme (Somerset) and ‘around the world’ all together. We were conscious that with two religious ceremonies, the day may seem too stuffy. This was the complete opposite of the fun, joyous day we were hoping to have. Thankfully a few innocuous gaffs, a hilarious Indian priest and a guest list that didn’t take themselves too seriously made the day full of laughter.

Wine bridesmaid dresses may have got you thinking about your gals…

Give yourself longer than the 8 months to plan we had! Make sure you sort the venue out first, as this frames the whole day. While it’s difficult after a day of work, we also recommend pulling together a spreadsheet containing a budget and plan for the day ASAP. Brief some close ones to keep to plan, who can also incorporate suggestions. This allows you to emotionally digest and enjoy the day (which we certainly did and more than we expected!)
