Ayesha and Nick has a beautiful wedding set in venue of Plume in Matakana.
We made a custom gown for Ayesha, with a gorgeous beaded floral lace, which fitted her to perfection.
Love how they made the ceremony so personal and set up the venue to resemble a circle of love – enveloped by their loved ones on all sides, also having their rings blessed by everyone.
Ayesha’s dad is Roman Catholic and her mother is a Zoroastrian so they decided to add a little element of each to their wedding. Firstly having a Roman Catholic blessing/prayer followed by a Zoroastrian/Parsi tradition called Achoo Michoo. It is all about warding off the evil eye and making sure the marriage starts pure and happily. Achoo Michoo is a typical Parsi custom of warding off the evil eye or evil vibes directed towards the bride and groom that is essentially performed before every wedding ritual.. The mother figure then applies a dot of kumkum on the bride’s forehead and a vertical tilak of kumkum on the groom’s forehead.
Nick also made a beautiful wooden box for the day, even managed to put a heart into it. They had heir guests write notes, their parents write letters, also adding their vows to the box – which they plan on open on their 10th anniversary.
