A Big Fat Indian Bollywood Party Wedding

Events organizer Mandip and affairs manager Alan were married on 22nd September 2018 inside a traditional Christian ceremony at St Mary's Church in Marylebone, London, then an Indian Bollywood Bhangra party for that evening's celebrations.


"I always knew I wanted something having a high neck that displayed my shoulders and potentially having a low back too. Finding the gown was possibly the hardest part of wedding ceremony planning for me as I just couldn't find anything like I had I believe."

"As soon as I tried the gown on I knew it had been the one. I loved the clean lines and simplicity and it displayed my arms, shoulders, and back perfectly. I felt elegant, classy, and sexy all simultaneously and most of all, it had been comfortable too!"

"A friend of Alan's was because of doing our flowers but she had to visit for work right before the wedding and couldn't invest in it. She recommended and he was incredible. He beautifully created my bouquet according to some pictures I'd shown him."

"My bouquet contains Amnesia roses, Viburnum berry, burgundy Astrantia, thistle, seeded Populus eucalyptus, pink waxflower, and Japanese Anemones. The bridesmaid's bouquets were similar but smaller to help keep continuity. Alan and the usher's corsages contain thistle, which incorporated another Scottish touch for their looks."

"How Alan and I met is a classic Tinderella story of the girl swipes right, the boy swipes right, and also the rest is history. We met in January 2015 and our relationship got serious quickly – I was already discussing marriage after just about six weeks! I always thought I'd have the ability to guess when Alan was proposing but he caught me completely off guard by doing the work on my birthday. He had organized an attractive picnic at St Dunstan-in-the-East. It's an attractive hidden garden and church ruins within the city."

"In the evening, Alan had told me he'd booked dinner and suggested we go for any drink beforehand towards the bar we'd our first date. When we got there I was completely overwhelmed because it transpired that he'd organized a surprise birthday party for me! It was this type of perfect day! I still don’t understand how he pulled them back with a lot of people within the know and never one person slipping up! We were engaged just for over a year before we got married." Click

"Our joint love of food, drink, and achieving fun was perfectly weaved during the day too."

"As it had been an autumn wedding, I was lead through the colors and tone from the season which I love. Burgundy, blush, deep blue, mauve, and blue thistle were all integrated into the flowers, buttonholes, ushers ties, and red bridesmaid dresses."

"I didn't have anyone accompany me on the aisle as my father passed away 13 years back. I didn't want to pick between my mum and my brothers and wasn't sure how I felt about being 'given away in the first place. In the finish, I decided just to walk down on my small own."

"Whilst I walked on the aisle on my small own, next time I walked down again I wasn't alone, I was with my now-husband who is my loved ones and future. It felt symbolic as I arrived as one and left in partnership."

"I had four bridesmaids and I was super relaxed by what they each wore. They are all so different in terms of the style and complexion, and it had been important to me they all felt comfortable."

"I have a lot of precious moments in the day but Alan's speech during dinner was particularly special. We chose to possess a sweetheart table once we didn't want to have a top table. It was great during dinner to possess some time to ourselves and take at the moment as your day goes by so quickly. Alan's speech only agreed to be everything – funny, moving, powerful, and incredibly emotional. We have been through a great deal that year."

Words Of Wedded Wisdom

"Keep your entire day true to what you are and you can't fail. Our day would be a reflection of us and that we couldn't have enjoyed it more. People will remember the way they felt and also the atmosphere from the day, not the tableware."
