Picture this – brilliant red and gold on the backdrop of pale yellow and blue – just one word for that – beautiful!! We witnessed an Indian wedding in all its glory on the beautiful beaches of Málaga last weekend! Cristina, a friend of mine, got married to her long time boyfriend Indian businessman Anil. Cristina grew up in Spain and has all her family over here, while Anil’s family flew down from Delhi and Mumbai in India!
We caught up with the photographers, Flgroe Studios of Mumbai, who specialize in wedding photography and who kindly let us in on all the details. And while we are still waiting to have all the images from them, we couldn’t wait to blog more about it!
If you have ever attended an Indian wedding, you know that it is a riot of colors, a celebration of old and new and full of rituals and ceremonies. While traditionally Indian weddings are held in lavishly decorated indoors, new age brides and grooms are becoming more contemporary with their choices! Indian parents are also warming up to their children’s wishes, and we’d say who can really resist the charm of getting married on a beach in Spain!
An important factor they had to take into account was the special attire worn in Indian weddings. Traditionally the bride wears a ‘lehenga’, which is a long and heavy flared skirt with multiple layers, while other women in the family wear ‘saris’, a long cloth draped around the body. However, for this particular Indian wedding, Cristina and Anil chose more western outfits. Their Mumbai-based designers made a special gown for Cristina which had all the Indian touches! We can’t wait to show you pictures!
