And... I'm married!

And finally… I’m married!

A little bit delayed in updating my blog, but we tied the knot and got married over a month and half ago! Since the big day we have been on the honeymoon of a lifetime to Thailand and Maldives, and then settling in to married life and work after around 5 weeks off! No idea where time has flown by!

Shopping for my white wedding dress

Another shopping post! This time on searching for a white wedding dress.

If you have read my previous post on my civil wedding, you will know that I am having a small ceremony with family and a handful of friends at the registry office. For something so simple, lasting only an hour (if that), I didn’t justify or have the need to spend hundreds on a beautiful white wedding dress (although if I was spending more time in that dress I would have had a higher budget).

My wedding shopping experience

I recently went to India to do shopping for my wedding outfits – as some of us do! Quite an interesting experience it was!

The Mandap

mandap is a significant part of a Hindu wedding- it is the decorated stage upon which the wedding ceremony occurs. Composed of four pillars, it symbolises the bride and grooms parents, and their role in upbringing their children.

Finding the right priest for your wedding

A Hindu wedding ceremony can be a little overwhelming for anyone, especially if you don’t know what is going on. As there are so many rituals going on, the need for a priest who can carry out the ceremony properly and explain each stage of it is vital. The Hindu wedding ceremony has some beautiful and meaningful rituals, as any other religion does, and it is nice to know what the significance is of what you are doing.

The countdown begins…

A bit of an update for those who have been following my journey – and for those who are new – Hi!

I’m now approaching the wedding day faster than I ever thought it would come around. I remember counting down a year ago, and now I only have four months to go! The amount of things I need to get done seems endless! With my India wedding shopping trip coming up soon, I think the feeling of getting married is finally sinking in!
