I quite liked Shamaine’s unusual colour choice of tangerine. View more below …
What is your most special memory of your wedding?
Bride: That teary moment when our eyes met, as the I walked down the aisle…. Adheer said to me he expected me to make a beautiful bride, but I exceeded all his expectations.
Groom: Watching my bride walk down the aisle and the second highlight is all the money that the groom keeps collecting @ a traditional Sanathan wedding.
What was the hardest part of the planning process?
Weddings have become a commercialized process. The hardest part was drawing the line to decide what is important to us as the couple. We realised people will always have opinions. It is important for the couple to be bold and host a function that is unique to their own expectations, as trying to satisfy everyone else’s opinion is impossible.
Did you experience any unexpected turns during the wedding process and how did you handle it?
The wedding taught us, we both we can only plan a function to a 95% status. The additional 5% will always remain the grey area of someone being late, or something being forgotten and one just has to go with the flow. Its insignificant at that point- so you just improvise and smile.
Any advice for brides-to-be?
Use your wedding as an opportunity to invest in yourself. Weddings are special, and once in a lifetime.
Ensure that after the formality is done and dusted, you have something to show that you have done for yourself.
Adheer and I made sure we included a honeymoon in our plans which gave us something to look forward to after all the hustle and bustle was over!
In addition, invest in good photography and videography as that will remain the only memory of the entire occasion.
Looking back, is there anything you would have done differently?
No… we cant remember all the detail, as the entire weekend went by so quickly- but we confident when the video and photos are ready, we will be able to relive the magic.
