Tasha & Robbie
Tasha and Robbie… where do we start. Honestly the dream couple. Tasha a doctor and Robbie a lawyer, both busy professionals who enquired with us back in early 2022 to assist in bringing their dream wedding to life.. all 5 days of it, we secretly squealed with excitement!
We had planned and styled a number of Indian weddings previously but never had we done a wedding with so many religious and celebratory days. To make it all the more interesting, it was for the last 5 days of the year, including NYE… which came with all the challenges of sourcing suppliers such as florists, printers and decor when most of them shut up shop during this time!
Our brief was to incorporate all the religious components for each celebration, making each day different but keeping it engaging, memorable, special and of course fun for all the guests! Many travelling to Melbourne from India and the United States.
We took on the challenge and it was going to be the best five days ever… Five days of… Five Indian wedding traditions, Five Family gatherings, Five emotional ceremonies, Five incredible gowns and outfits and Five days of wedded bliss.
The first day, the Pithi (or Haldi) ceremony was traditional, cultural, colourful and stylish. A joyous and fun occasion for friends and family blessing the couple by rubbing pithi paste onto the bride and groom. The day was designed with floral elements in yellow and orange tones, symbolising the sun, brightness and positivity and the colour of pithi paste. Incredibly beautiful, lots of fun, incredibly messy!
Check out day two, the Mehndi.
