I have been missing for a while. Been busy with the wedding preparations. My fiancé, now my husband, and I had decided to go in for a Registered Civil wedding, followed by two wedding receptions; one for friends and one for the family. The Civil wedding took place on the 10th February. We left late for the Court, and panic ensued as we kept getting caught in traffic. But finally, everything went off well, and my decision to wear my mother’s sari to my own wedding was well-received by everyone.
I accessorized the Sari with just a pair of pearl earrings, and chose not to wear any make-up. My beautiful friend Ritika, Founder and Designer for MORA, took some memorable pictures of the ceremony. My brother Prashant, Mushfiq’s siter, Shahana, and one of his best buds, Jayesh, were witnesses. Post the Civil wedding, we took our friends out for a quick lunch at a Thali Restaurant. Mushfiq wore a simple cotton kurta with jeans, while my sister-in-law, Mala wore a silk sari and looked lovely as ever. I will do an elaborate post with the wedding pictures later. For now, I am leaving you with a handful of pictures from the Civil ceremony. I am currently busy with adjusting to a new life, in a new home. I have shifted to my husband’s home, and it’s a wonderful feeling, starting my life afresh.
I have been missing blogging and all you lovely ladies and your blogs. Please give me time to catch up with all of you. This is a busy time in my life.
