A Hindu wedding is a showcase of decorations and a triumph of colours. Deepa and Loven’s Hindu ceremony could not be beneath expectations.
The chosen wedding venue was one of the most beautiful Castles in Florence, Tuscany. Its layout was just ideal for this daylight celebration as the venue featured an internal courtyard which was set up as a lounge and the dedicated food and beverage area, and a panoramic terrace with 180 views over the surrounding Tuscany countryside.
We started setting up at 4am in the morning as the big golden mandap required an extensive amount of time to be built and decorated. The result was an imposing structure elegantly decorated with flowers and drapes in rich burgundy, shades of red and vibrant orange and a touch of white to break the intensity of the colours.
One of the most popular attractions in Ravello is the stunning Duomo. With its white and gold interiors, it’s an oasis pf peace which separates you from the bustle of the main square where the Church is located. therefore I was thrilled when Lauren and Thomas chose it for their Amalfi Coast wedding ceremony.
Guests were driven to the venue from their nearby accommodations and were welcomed by drinks and snacks. Hindu weddings abound with traditions and ceremonies and tend to last a few hours. It is common practise for guests to take breaks during the rites to eat and drink therefore a vegetarian buffet and virgin drinks were available throughout the whole day. This was even more necessary as the morning ceremony carried on to lunchtime and the August Tuscan sun was shining bright on this colourful wedding.
The three hours Hindu wedding was followed by an afternoon of traditional Indian music, more food and drinks at this wonderful Tuscany wedding venue.
