I Attended A Big Fat Indian Wedding…Again! #Loveuary❤ Day 5.1

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of going to a wedding. A great event to go to in this month of love1 #Loveuary!It was my Hubby Dearest’s cousin getting married, and as previous weddings in their family have shown, it was going to be a grand affair…

Grand indeed!

The decor was amazing, both in the Gurdwara and in the reception venue, which happened to be The Dorchester Hotel on Park Lane, in London! (very La-di-da!)

Aside from a huge vase with an arrangement suddenly exploding in the middle of the ceremony (Goodness knows what happened there!) there was nothing amiss. It was luxury from beginning to end!

When we arrived at the reception venue, there were little envelopes with our names on them. No simple seating plan here… inside each envelope was your table number! And then at your place on the table, we all had personalised menus, with our names on them too!

And the food… oh the food! I can assure you that my diet went totally out of the window yesterday! From the absolutely amazing breakfast buffet, to the canapes, the starters, to the main lunch, and the desserts, wedding cake and petit fours, there was no space left in my stomach!

There was a band and singer playing English songs for the initial part of the party, then we had a celebrity guest, Sukhbir Singh, a Bhangra Singer, originating from Kenya, and now living in Dubai. I felt a little at home here as I knew exactly who he was… his songs played at many of my own family functions, but there were a lot of people, the bride’s mum and sister to name a few, who didn’t know who he was!! He was accompanied by four dhol players which perked my Lil Man up no end, as he also plays the Dhol!

And the couple themselves… Well, here they are, taking their Lawaan (nuptial rounds), cutting the cake with a rather large sword (Eek!) and sat at their table. Beautiful couple, wish them every happiness!

Okay, I know you will ask… here is me dressed up in my new outfit too!

It was a lovely day, the rain didn’t disturb us, and the whole experience was extremely elegant! What a wonderful day!

(I’ll be working hard to rid myself of those extra calories for a good few weeks, though, I think!)

    Wow! What a wedding! That is something our culture can only dream off! Ha, I would have loved to witness the vase exploding. What fantastic “show element”… lol! Gosh, looks like you all have eaten all day…. paradise! And now the last point: You look gorgeous, Sis! I love this kind of blue and it fits you great 😘
