Our Real Bride Harmeet Shares Photos From Her Big Indian Wedding
One thing we can all agree on is that Indian weddings are fun, well for the guests at least. Unfortunately by the time the big day rolls around that’s not always the case for the bride and groom. Which is why Harmeet and Sunny’s wedding was so refreshing. This stylish couple managed to have the big Indian wedding and inject their own sense of fun and whimsy into the proceedings.
The festivities kicked off with a 50?s Bollywood themed pre-wedding party set in a plush cream marquee. Harmeet looked every inch the heroine in a conveniently short-lengha in teal and tangerine complete with retro hair and makeup. Basanti eat your heart out!
For the main event Harmeet rolled back the hands on the retro-clock a little further; opting for Gatsby hair, a classic red lip and bold eyes. She finished the look with a simple red bindi and jewellery by?Bee?s London.
Harmeet wore a bespoke bridal lengha by My Trousseau featuring antique zardozi embroidery with candy accents and a scallop-edged dupatta. Harmeet’s Punjabi prince wore a dapper two-tone red and mauve sherwani from Ahsans of Birmingham.
After the wedding ceremony the fun continued as the happy couple?made their way in a VW camper van to The Brewery, in the heart of London. A great venue with plenty of character and capacity for a huge guest list- more importantly space for a big dance floor because, well…you know how we do.

Best bit(s) of the day:
Seeing my husband-to-be after 3 weeks of waiting and having all our friends and family from all over the world in one place.
No matter how much you plan they’re will always be someone who’s not delivered on the day.
Best decision made?
Many people say that by having a big wedding you lose the intimacy of your big day, but Sunny and I believed having 400 guests was a great balance for an Indian wedding. There was an electric atmosphere, lots of laughter, a few leg ups and a couple of emotional moments.
Advice/ tips from the Bride:
Delegate tasks on the day of the wedding so that those appointed can take on full responsibility- it?s the only day you get to act like a princess and get away with it!
Anything else that you’d like to share??
It’s been an amazing year of celebrations starting with our civil ceremony; my chunni; my bachelorette in Miami; then my 50’s Bollywood-theme pre-party and finally the big day itself. Its been great and I could not have asked for anything more!
Thanks Harmeet and congratulations again to you and Sunny!
