Kiren and Sandeep’s Wedding Celebrations – Part 1 – Sandeep’s Ladies Sangeet



Kiren and Sandeep’s wedding celebrations began with their pre-wedding parties – known as the Ladies Sangeet. Both were such fun and involved ladies singing traditional folk songs and lots of dancing and partying for all. Here’s some of our highlight’s from Sandeep’s Ladies Sangeet… we’ll post some from Kiren’s tomorrow…





At Sandeep’s Ladies Sangeet he also had his batna ceremony, which involved a yellow turmeric paste being applied to his legs, face, and arms. This is done as an act of cleansing and balance before married life. All the ladies took it in turns to rub this paste onto Sandeep, who sat patiently throughout.













A large part of both sangeet parties involved traditional dance – with sticks and with the Jaggo (a fab coloured hat with candles which folks took turns to wear and dance with) Apparently there is some competition between the Falkirk and the Glasgow sides of the family about whose dancing is better?… we’ll leave it up to you to decide once you’ve seen the highlights from Kiren’s Ladies Sangeet tomorrow…











Look out for Part 2 tomorrow…

More real life weddings


By the Beach

An outdoor wedding ceremony overlooking the bay in the middle of one of the hottest Scottish summers is one of life’s gifts (and perfect planning on the part of Helen and James)

Rooftop views like these

Balmoral Hotel weddings have their own kind of magic. For starters you get to literally have the red carpet rolled out for you and be treated like royalty… and then (perhaps even more special) you get access to enviable rooftop views.

A little bit of perfect


11 May 2021

What could be more perfect than getting married in your garden in Edinburgh (especially when your garden has a lawn that was almost designed for outdoor parties)?
To say we’d been looking forward to this wedding for quite a while may well be the biggest understatement of the year.
