Love makes the world go around: ethnic romance.

Indian wedding in Italy

A marriage is the binding of two people, two families and more often two countries and traditions that come together for a lifetime.
It’s surprising how much the different ceremonies and traditions we have been lucky to learn of in the past years have touched our souls.. there is always something mysterious and romantic about traditional ceremonies..

Many of our couples come from far away countries to celebrate their wedding in Italy and they often decide to incorporate ancient traditions and folklore in their Italian event. While some opt for small details or little touches, others prefer planning the full ceremony in total respect of their customs.

Rani and Edward, an Indian English couple, decided to set their lavish wedding on the shores of Lake Maggiore fully inspired by their heritage, personalty and style.
The ceremony followed the modern western ritual yet Rani’s aunt chanted the Hindi Seven blessings sealing their union forever in a perfect blend of culture and religion.

Indian guests opted for their traditional vivid coloured dresses – that we always admire and rave about!
The most beautiful suit was with no doubt Rani’s father’s: a white silk sherwani with golden embroidery and pailettes.
The bride personally designed her gown tailoring it to her individual style: she reinterpreted the timeless Indian saree in a contemporary European key… what we call a fusion styled dress!

Rani also wore traditional henna on her hands and decorated her forehead with the ornamental dot called bindi and the beautiful pendant tika; a couple of unfailing touches that made her simply glamourous!

Very cute Indian details were also incorporated in the reception.
At the entrance of the villa the Ganesh, always invoked to attend a Hindu marriage ceremony, welcomed their guests with floating candles and incenses while Indian inspired finger food was served during the cocktail.
Tables were enriched with Indian inspired details like the pretty sparkling favour boxes, henna menus and place cards.

For each Lady there were extravagant coloured bangles to wear, each colour symbolizing a different meaning but all signifying good fortune and protection from Evil.

Following the Indian tradition a lavish feast with music and dances accompained bride and groom in their new journey, hand in hand, towards a future of hope, health and happines filled with joy and love!
