Elegant Irish Meets Bollywood Fusion Wedding

They met online, on a music sharing website, when the bride was 16 and the groom, 17. They bonded over their mutual appreciation for the same music and even though Soraya lived in Northern Ireland and Koysor in Birmingham they became firm friends. They finally met in person five months later when Soyaya was over in London for a visit. Koysor travelled down to meet her and they became boyfriend and girlfriend (aww).

They chose the midlands as their wedding location and were married at Pendrell Hall. The day was a fusion between their two cultures, with a dash of DIY decor inspiration from their favourite Moroccan and Lebanese restaurant! The venue was their biggest expense, but they saved by getting married on a Wednesday. They also saved by doing all the decor, the cake, the stationery and the signs themselves.

Don’t Tell The Bride: Vibrant Bollywood Wedding in Brighton

Don't Tell The Bride Vibrant Bollywood Wedding in Brighton_Rosa and Harry (78)

I’ll admit, I don’t always watch BBC Three’s Don’t Tell The Bride, but I’m so glad I caught Rosa and Harry’s episode. In fact it’s probably my favourite wedding that’s ever been featured! For those of you that don’t know, the premise of the show is the couple get ÂŁ12,000 to spend on their wedding, the proviso being that the groom does all of the planning… in three weeks! The couple are separated for that time and bride can know nothing about the wedding until the day. Cue ridiculously bad decisions, overspending on crazy things and tears… lots of tears. This is reality TV gold my friends.

When I saw this episode, I immediately fell in love with Rosa and Harry, I thought he did so well! Although it wasn’t what the bride would have picked, the fact that he planned a colourful Indian wedding (to reflect the fact that they got engaged there) was so incredibly sweet and thoughtful, and anyone who has a mechanical elephant to ride on at their wedding is OK in my book!

Bollywood Palm Springs Wedding: Carla & Daniel

Using influences from around the world, Carla & Daniel wanted their Palm Springs wedding to be eclectic but relaxed.

“We really wanted our wedding to have a relaxed and fun atmosphere that reflected how we connect a couple”, explained the bride. “I work in the wedding industry myself and so people assumed that as soon as we were engaged I’d have every detail planned, but it was actually the exact opposite! All I knew was that I wanted something different for our wedding and I knew just the people for the job. My sister and I launched our own wedding business, Wedding Collectibles, a few years ago. Our event design & planners Sugar & Fluff were some of the first contacts and friends that we made when we first started.”

The venue was Alcazar Hotel in Palm Springs. With a passion for Bollywood, Carla asked her stylists if this would work as a theme and they seamlessly incorporated it in with the Spanish and Moroccan vibe of the space. “We decided to do a weekend getaway for close family and friends in Palm Springs,” Carla continued. “Guest flew in from all over the world and it was a great weekend for everyone to bond and enjoy the weekend wedding festivities.”
