Hindu wedding at Fulham Palace

It was another lovely warm day at Fulham Palace for Sarah and Arif’s fusion wedding. A small and intimate celebration, bursting to life with a wonderful array of guest dress, bought the Palace alive on this sunny spring date.

The couple celebrated both their cultures at Fulham Palace. Utilising all the Palace’s wonderful spaces Sarah and Arif enjoyed an intimate Nikah ceremony in the Bishop Terrick’s Drawing room, followed by a blessing in the stunning Tait Chapel.

Make up artist Annette Kemp prepared Sarah for her big day, assembling her traditional Indian head dress and accessories.  Sarah’s smile complimented them all!

The bridal car, a glistening Rolls Royce drew into the Tudor Courtyard where Sarah and her father enjoyed some photos in the sun before Arif emerged to greet her.

Sarah and Arif were enjoyed a quiet moment in the courtyard with their photographer Jo Hughes before heading to the Bridal Suite to wait for their guests to arrive.

The couple chose the Bishop Terrick’s drawing room for their ceremony, licensed for up to 50 guests. The natural light pouring through the windows came together with the explosion of colour provided by the guests stunning ensembles. The quintessentially British setting was met in harmony by the fusion of both cultures showing just how verstaile the spaces in the Palace can be.

Sarah, Arif and their guests were then lead through to the Tait Chapel which is available for blessings here at the Palace. Sarah picked up her traditional gorgeous bouquet by Mary Jane Vaughan and walked down the isle arm in arm with her husband to be. A wonderful string quartet provided back ground music for the ceremony to complete the second part of the coming together of Sarah and Arif.

The colours of the couple’s dress perfectly complimented the rich warm panelling inside the Chapel and the gold detail on Sarah’s sari provided a wonderful majestic feel in this grand yet quaint space.

Another of our couples who were so lucky with the weather, Sarah and Arif were able to enjoy a drinks reception in the Tudor Courtyard with their guests before heading off for some intimate photos in the Palace grounds. We particularly like the shots of the couple in the gardens, they perfectly emulate the day’s celebration in a historic British venue with a touch of India.

Heading back inside the Palace for a late lunch, decorative touches continued throughout. The Great Hall was styled for the wedding breakfast with rustic lanterns as centrepieces filled flickering battery powered candles. Small and sweet red and white flowers were scattered around the room and delicately placed on the mantle piece as a back drop for the happy couple.
