It was a warm summer evening in Jahdpur, India when Hamna and Jay exchanged their vows in a lavish four day wedding celebration. Surrounded by their closest family and friends, the couple celebrated their love with traditional Indian rituals and modern touches that reflected their unique personalities.
The celebrations began with a beautiful mehndi ceremony, where the bride and her bridesmaids adorned their hands and feet with intricate henna designs. The following day, the groom and his groomsmen participated in a dashing baraat procession, where they rode on horseback through the streets of Jahdpur, greeted by cheers and music from their loved ones.
On the third day, the main event took place at a stunning outdoor venue nestled in the rolling hills of Jahdpur. The ceremony was a blend of traditional Indian and Western wedding customs, with the couple exchanging vows under a floral-covered mandap while being surrounded by the breathtaking natural beauty of the surrounding landscape.
The reception was a lavish affair, with delicious Indian cuisine and elaborate stage decorations that transported guests to a royal palace. The newlyweds took to the dance floor for their first dance as husband and wife, and were joined by their loved ones for a night of dancing and celebration.
The final day of the wedding was a day of relaxation and rejuvenation, with the couple and their guests enjoying a day at the spa and pool before saying their final goodbyes. As Hamna and Jay begin their new life together as husband and wife, they will always cherish the memories of their magnificent four day wedding celebration in the stunning location of Jahdpur, India.
"First time we met, was at my cousins wedding. They told me to meet this girl, but she was busy eating, and hardly spoke a word. She was beautiful, but didn't show me any sign of interest. I also found out that she thought I was too short...a month or so later, she'd asked about me. So when we got to meet, she stepped out of the car and asked to stand next to me...'yay! You're taller than me!' When we got that out of the way, everything else was so easy. It's as if we spent years knowing each other" jay tells me today, before the 3'd day ceremony. "I noticed that he was wearing a very traditional suit, and it was peacock colors, exactly the same as what I was wearing that night we met. He stood out as being a man that cared for traditions, and wasn't following the new trends. And yes, I was a little worried about him being shorter than me" Hemna laughs.
