Julia and Faheem's multicultural wedding was more of a big weekend than a big day. Many of Julia's friends and family flew over from Germany to help the couple celebrate their marriage and were treated to two ceremonies. The first was an intimate affair on the Friday at Sheffield's Botanical Gardens. Julia arrived at the venue with her dad. There was a very long walk to the glasshouse, where everyone was waiting for them, amongst the plants. When Julia finally made her entrance, everybody was very pleased to see her.
I always enjoy working at this venue because it’s very picturesque with plenty of foliage and natural light, but no chance of getting rained on. It was a lovely marriage and one of the most moving register signings I've witnessed. Julia and Faheen were clearly so pleased that the day had finally arrived. The first wedding reception was held in a traditional English pub - The Cricket Inn.
Two days later, there was a larger, more elaborate ceremony for more guests at Cutlers Hall in Sheffield. Julia wore a traditional Indian bridal gown in red and gold, along with plenty of mehndi. No less moving, the bride and groom exchanged more vows and then there was a large meal. The impressively ornate, rose-covered wedding cake deserves a special mention, as does the effort that went into both days. I’d like to wish the happy couple my heartfelt congratulations. I’m in no doubt that they’ll be very happy together.
