Fifty shades of adorable this wedding. Right from the grooms powder blue tux with candy striped bow tie (SO fun), to the young, pretty bride who wore silver sneakers under her gown and the absolutely adorable garden decor with personalised details (a time capsule- read more about it in the brides notes). Imran and Aslina's wedding shot by Studio A photography
is full of young, sweet romance.
Meet Imran and Aslina
Aslina recounts "Imran is my elder sister's husband's younger brother . Yes, I am dating my brother-in-law's brother :D So we met when an arranged marriage was fixed for my sister with his brother 6 years ago. Slowly through all the meticulous wedding planning , we suddenly realised we were using the wedding planning as an excuse to talk to each other & as time went on, it became crystal clear that both of us have fallen for each other without us saying anything directly to one another "
From the bride:
I was a hands-on bride if there ever was one.
With lots of discussions with my sister Arifa , my friends & my mother- I took care of everything right from outfits, decor to themes and food!
Our engagement decor was done entirely by us. I gave the entire design ideas and after a lot of research & help from my bridesmaids, and my sister set the whole place up in a rustic themed outdoor engagement with a pastel colour scheme. We had like a door frame at the entrance of the venue, We Put 2 tables on either side & put pics of me and Imran, a vintage sewing machine and an old 'gala petti' like a cashier's metal box . We placed a metal trunk as a 10-year anniversary time capsule that every guest filled - we will now open this box on our 10 year anniversary to relive the memories and see what our guests wrote.
For our mehendi, we had a traditional Arabian nights theme, with everything from decor to outfits in typical Arabian style.
We knew we couldn't do many details with the wedding, because the guestlist was huge & the ceremony was formal and traditional therefore, I chose a colour scheme and did decor, outfits and invites accordingly. One thing different about my wedding was, I used no flowers. I think flowers are too expensive & they take out a lump of your decoration budget. There are various other options like pearls, crystals and fabric manipulations! These decorators would have already invested in & is not a one-time buy for them, hence, it costs a lot less.
