An Autumn Wedding

by Rachna17. January 2013 22:09

Autumn brings to mind the myriad hues of shedding leaves-russet and ochre with hints of bronze and gold.
Their gentling rustling holds the promise of new beginnings.

The colours of autumn and the season itself are an idyllic setting for a wedding- an inception to happiness.
Auspicious and chic,the colours lend themselves well to the occasion.

An open space, decorated entirely with marigolds in various shades-deepest maroon to the palest
yellow. Off white paper lanterns swaying from trees and only white fairly lights. Dull gold and maroon linen with the occasional tint of saffron coloured maple leaves as the underlying motif. Bunches of nargis on the tables, lending their gentle fragrance to the ambience. Ideally, with a water body,in which hundreds of candles are shimmering.

Gentle music in the background, Jazz by Louiz Banks, Sitar and Jal Tarang, the mellow sounds of flowing water. A perfect foil for the murmured sounds of conversation.

Indian (Mixed) and Continental food served to the accompaniment of sherbets,juices and kahwa will be a gastronomical delight. Desserts must include a hint of saffron in them, to gel with the underlying theme.

The bride in rust and gold.Chinarleaves scattered on herlehenga.Delicate filigreed jewellery with rubies and emeralds. Maroon marigolds adorning her hair.The groom in an off-white Jodhpuri suit.Their setting with the water behind them.

They exchange their vows under a flowered canopy as the stars shine down and bless them.

An Autumn Wedding to cherish.
