Your Yorkshire Wedding - March/April 2022 (Issue 53)

Our table names were our favourite places we’ve travelled together. Zain is a keen photographer. I wore a white offthe-shoulder fusion gown and veil with pearl and crystal embroidery from Mongas, London (a compromise between Asian, what Zain’s mum wanted, and a white wedding dress, what my mum wanted). The day canapés, mocktails and wedding breakfast were supplied by My Lahore. We had all the mocktails, but virgin mojito was favourite. For the evening reception, we had street food by Whirlowbrook’s in-house caterers. The main room had large letters spelling ‘Love’ on the dancefloor and fairylights around the main room and bar ceiling. Zain wore a navy and heavy gold embroidered Shawani from The Desi Groom in London. He was incredibly glittery, so yes, he very much stood out. I had Mehndi done on my feet, hands, arms and legs by Preet two days before at home, prior to our joint Mehndi party. My bridesmaids had small designs on their hands. My design was freestyle with Zains initials hidden on my palms. 35 REAL WEDDINGS
