Mira arrived early on a warm autumnal day at Parklands with her mini entourage of family, friends and helps. They excitedly made their way up to the bridal changing room which was soon filled with bags, clothes and the wonderful sound of laughter and chatter as everyone got ready for Mira’s wedding day. The morning soon flew by, and it was time to make the last minute finishing touches before making their way downstairs and into the pavilion.

Nalin was busy with all the guest outside taking part in the wonderful, joyous tradition of being hoisted into the air and paraded as a king, the noise and colours in front of the house was marvellous.

Nalin was waiting along with all their friends and family in the pavilion for Mira. As she entered along with her bridal procession, everyone looked around to try and get their first glimpses of Mira, she looked stunning, Nalin’s face lit up when he saw his bride for the first time that day. After the beautiful traditional ceremony, it was time for Raja Shah Photography to capture some magical photos of Mira and Nalin as husband and wife in and around the grounds at Parklands.

The vidai ceremony was very emotional as Mira’s family bid her farewell, and wished her well in her new life with Nalin.

The afternoon had now given way to evening, and it was time for Nalin and Mira to return as husband and wife, as they entered the pavilion to the wonderful sound of the Dholl Drummers. It was an amazing scene as the pavilion was now full of tables and chairs along with all their family and friends who were excited to greet the newlyweds.

Once the meal had been finished the DJ started to play some floor filling tunes, the party could now really get under way.
