Fusion Asian Wedding Thornton Manor Lakeside Marquee
We love a challenge so we were delighted to have the privilege of documenting Sanaya and Satal’s fusion Asian wedding at Thornton Manor.
Bridal preps at home first – again how to take a shot of a Sari, bit different from a dress hanging up!
The Groom arriving with his family and then beign greeted by Sanya’s mum to welcome him.
A fusion of Sikh and Zoroastrian involved special blessing ceremonies as bride and groom are greeted by their husband’s to be family members.
Rose petals, rice and coconuts were all part of the ceremony during the payers read by Satal’s aunt and the priest.
A new challenge for the ceremony as the priest faces the couple who are facing the congregation.
A unique seating plan – creatively made by Satal’s mother using wood from fruit trees from her garden.
It made a beautiful statement hanging from the large tree on the lakeside near the marquee at Thornton Manor.
Beautiful cake by Suzanne Harvey complimented Sanaya’s champagne sparkly Sari. In Suzanne’s words: ” gorgeous chocolate orange, lemon and carrot cake
was created especially for Sanaya and Satal’s Sikh and Zoroastrian fusion wedding at Thornton Manor, Lakeside Marquee.
Decorated with subtle frills, antique gold lustre and an abundance of edible sequins with 22 carat gold leaf, this cake was perfectly coordinated with the look of Sanaya and Satal’s day!”
No slow first dance, our couple wished for an impact when the curtain was raised for the evening party to begin and we certainly got that!
The drummers enticing the party goers to the dance floor. Honestly I don’t think they needed much enticement – the floor was always packed!
Sanaya and Satal’s first dance came much later! Wonderful to see the older generation of the families being included on the dance floor too – just as in the pre wedding party.
Hope you enjoy these images as much as we enjoyed the day!
