“Hindu & Catholic wedding. Multicultural destination wedding in Sevilla“
A love story of a Spanish girl and English boy with Indian roots, who fell in love in London and celebrated their wedding with a three-day Sevilian affair. What captured us immediately was their affection and admiration for one another. They speak with smiles and make each other laugh constantly. They’re sweet and friendly with each other—a couple that makes for a great team with lots of personality.
They are both able to show the other the importance of their culture. Their families were able to take part in their own cultural rituals and those of the other with open arms.
We had the privilege of following the traditions of a Hindu ceremony: the Mehndi day, the next day a ceremony that began with the Baraat, the arrival of the groom with rhythmic music, while the bride surprised everyone with a red sari adorned in gold. The ceremony concluded by the bride and groom placing two necklaces of flowers around each other’s necks, followed by a relaxed cocktail by the pool. They were days full of colors, songs, and more than anything, happy people wishing the couple a long and full marriage.
The celebrations closed with a Catholic wedding, Sonia dressed in white with her hands and feet laced with beautiful henna designs.
When we celebrate love, neither culture nor language can separate us. With hugs, signs and dances, everyone was one big family those three days.
