Trishana and Jayvan
November 10 & 12, 2017
“Seven years of dating culminated in the weekend of our lives. The venue chosen for our hindu wedding ceremony; the Sobo Shiv Mandir in La Brea, was one especially dear to Jayvan, as his late father assisted in its initial construction and he attended it religiously as a young boy. Ceremony photos were taken at Mount Pleasant Mediation Centre, La Brea. From the moment Jayvan popped the question, Instagram and Pinterest proved instrumental in providing a plethora of inspiration and ideas. I was also particularly captivated by the indian designer Sabyasachi, with his traditional yet iconic red bridal lehengas. Knowing this was the look I wanted to achieve but engulfed with work and no time for a hair or makeup trial, I explained my vision to my makeup artist and hairstylist via whatsapp messages weeks prior to the big day. They executed brilliantly and I would recommend them to any bride as their “hands proved to be the truth”.
Our wedding weekend was also significant as the bride’s grandfather was celebrating a milestone birthday – ninety years of age! It was an emotional time for us to share this birthday milestone and the start of our new journey, with his presence and blessing. Two days later, our reception was held at Signature Hall in Chaguanas with photos taken at Palmiste Park in San Fernando.
While most brides are eager to try on on their fair share of dresses before saying “yes!” the dress I fell in love with, was found in a catalogue. While waiting for it to arrive, I was mortified at the thought of it not living up to the dress of my dreams but it turned out to be everything I anticipated and more. If I can offer one piece of advice, whilst the goal of most brides is to look and feel their best on their wedding day… not sweating the small things and remembering to keep a smile on your face throughout the day, assists in creating the most beautiful video and photos, so you can always remember and relive your special day!”
