A beautiful Asian wedding from the Arts and Conference Centre at Bolton School

Whenever I see an English Asian wedding I wish I had more in my inbox to share with you – the elegance and wonderful colours are out of this world! And Dharmendra and Divya’s contemporary English wedding with an Asian twist is simply amazing. I jumped at the chance to share it with you as soon as I saw it!

My thanks to a gorgeous couple for sharing such a glorious wedding day on the English Wedding Blog – and congratulations! Thanks also to Phil for the submission.

How would you describe your wedding style?

We’d say contemporary English with an Asian twist. We had a purple colour scheme as its Divya’s favourite colour.

A little about the wedding ceremony:

Simple civil ceremony with a registrar.

Tell us a little about your wedding venue styling and details:

The venue was the Arts and Conference Centre at Bolton School. It’s a modern building with old architectural features which give a nice touch of character. The main school buildings are listed and provided some really nice backdrops for the couples photographs.

Invitations and reception stationery:

The invitations were a standard design from Vistaprint but the seating plans were done by us.

Wedding music and entertainment:

The music during the ceremony was a playlist created by Divya and the evening entertainment was provided by DesiFusion.

What did you wear?

Bride: Dress was custom made by Paaneri in Mumbai, India using a design inspired by Arwen’s dress in Lord of the Rings. Shoes and jewellery were from Debenhams (Debut and Jon Richard respectively).

Groom: A 3 piece mid-grey suit, with black shoes. The suit was off-the-shelf but from a Savile Row tailor. The back of the waistcoat and the tie were both purple which matched the colour theme of the wedding.

Memorable wedding day moments:

  • Seeing each other for the first time as Divya walked up the aisle.
  • Being pronounced as husband and wife.
  • The confetti outside.
  • The group photo.
  • Dharmendra being lifted up by a friend and cousin towards the end of the night on the dancefloor.
  • And just generally seeing a lot of happy faces, especially our grandmothers

Wedding day advice:

  • Relax and enjoy the day as it won’t happen again and it will pass by very quickly.
  • Don’t drink too much alcohol (that’s more from Dharmendra)!

Recommended wedding suppliers:

  • Phil Drinkwater Photography – www.phildweddingphotography.co.uk
  • Catering was provided by Apna Khana from Bradford which went down really well with our guests, very tasty!
  • Chair covers and uplighting were provided by the venue, the rest of the decorations were a DIY job.
  • DJ was amazing as DesiFusion catered well for an audience of Asians of different generations.
