For any couples planning a multicultural wedding, take notes from Matthew and Preena who paid homage to both their Indian and English heritages in one cohesive celebration. They began the day with a Western-style ceremony followed by a traditional Hindu “Mandap” all set in the charming English countryside. A feast of Indian food was served for their ballroom reception and Taylor & Porter didn’t miss a single moment.
The guys married at Wrest Park, which mixes elegant French architecture with a grand and picturesque landscape. The grounds of Wrest Park are adorned with stunning lawns, wooded walks and flower gardens, dotted with fountains, statues and ornate follies. This unique early 19th century house was the perfect setting for this couple’s classically elegant style. Their reception was held in the grounds; in the beautiful light filled Orangery where after a feast of traditional Indian food they danced the night away under the stars.
The pastel color scheme leant to fusion of Regal Indian and classic English and ran through to the stationery, flowers, button holes (the guests has lavender and rosemary) and favors (potted succulents).
The bride was wearing a bridal separate with a keyhole back of lush fabric, with long sleeves and embroidery, which looked rather traditional for an Indian ceremony. She was also rocking an adorned veil, embellished heels, a headpiece and a statement necklace – such a balanced look that suits both ceremonies! The groom wore a blue suit for a Western ceremony and a traditional Indian one for the second ceremony.
This is a beautiful example of mixing to cultures at one ceremony, so heaven-like!
