Joti & Shiva
We've been dating for 12 years when we got married and one can say it was a long time coming. We had literally spent half our lives together and we tried to call as many of our friends, family and community together for the entire occasion. A Hindu wedding is a reflection of the creation that happens in the cosmos and just for that day it is believed that we are the incarnation of Vishnu and Lakshmi. The more people that partake in the celebrations, the more auspiciousness is bestowed on the couple. Our ROM was held at Sree Narayana mission. Our wedding was at Perumal temple and reception was at Swissotel Fairmont. The priests were from Lakshmi Narayan Temple. https://www.razor.tv/video/we-got-married-in-an-old-folks-home/4802324429001/5068090599001
Aruna & Jaga
We had a whole line up of events leading up to the big day. Our wedding journey started with Nichayam (Engagement) in Feb 2019 >> ROM in July 2019 >> Parisam (Betrothal Ceremony) in Dec 2019. We also had smaller events such as henna night, bridal shower, bangle ceremony and thali padayal right before our traditional wedding. Our wedding journey was filled with many beautiful moments that we will treasure for a lifetime together. We are grateful to share these moments and be able to rightfully credit all the amazing vendors that helped create our dream wedding!
Melissa & Dipesh
Our wedding was held at the Church of St Vincent De Paul and we had a reception dinner at Swissotel the Stamford. Our entire wedding was very special and memorable to us! The most significant and touching moments were when we exchanged our vows. And of course, seeing our families from different parts of the world coming together to celebrate this occasion with us.
Sharenya & Dilip
We did our Engagement & Parisam May 18 2019 at Foo Chow Building. This year we got married. We had our weddings in both our cultures. Dilip is a Catholic hence we held our Church wedding(ROM) + reception on 22/2/2020. Wedding at St. Francis of Assisi followed by dinner reception at Suntec City Convention Centre. & since Sharenya is a Hindu, we held our traditional wedding on 21/3/2020 at Thendayuthapani Temple, Tank Road.
Vaishnavi & Sharrvesh
Our traditional wedding was held at South Bridge Mariamman Temple hall after a whole week of ceremonies. Our wedding festivities kick started with a henna party for the bride, followed by bangle ceremony the next day and ‘thaali padaiyal’ for the groom the following day. We concluded with a wedding party in July, or as we normally call it reception, at the cosy premier villa in Civil Service Countryclub. It was greatly cost-saving and importantly, we could party through the night with no disturbances. Can’t imagine a hotel reception with our crowd, oh no! Even for the other ceremonies including our engagement and ROM, we prudently held them at our homes. With good help and planning, we were contented.
Srija & Vishnu
Our wedding was held at the brand new hall of the newly renovated Holy Tree Sri Balasubramaniar Temple. We had a rather simple, traditional Malayalee wedding that ended before it even began! We immortalised the memories from our wedding through snippets of videos taken lovingly by our friends and family. We have a beautiful collection of photographs from the wedding that makes us wonder how in the world did we manage to pull it all off.
