A two-day Indian Wedding was celebrated in the fascinating Villa Flori, which in its nineteenth-century architecture hosted around a hundred people coming from the USA and India. Isha, Tej, their families and friends had a wonderful time on Lake Como, everything was planned down to the last details.
TRADITION AND CULTURE
It was a complete experience between the Indian tradition and culture mixed with the Italian food, international music and of course the charme of Lake Como. During the first day there were the Indian celebrations of Haldi, Mehndi and Sangeet, with people dressed in the colourful and traditional Indian dresses, music and dances, games for the spouses, hennè tattoos for the guests.
During the second day a trip by boat was planned for the guests to the magnificent Villa del Balbianello, in Tremezzina. Reaching it on the MegaRospo, the biggest boat on the Lake, allows guests to see glimpses of the landscape, villas and take lots of stunning photos. For us “seeing the lake from the lake” is a must!
While the guests were on the boat tour, the villa was completely transformed for the ceremony, everything was decorated with flowers, colours, lights and jewels for the participants. The groom was getting ready for the Baraat in the Gran Lago Suite. On his arrival everyone was ready to dance in front of the Rolls Royce that would take him to the garden.
After the blessing of the family, here comes the bride in her wonderful red dress! The bridesmaids and the music of the violins accompanied her to the betrothed. They celebrate a typical Indian ceremony.
And in the end, everyone changed into their best elegant party dress, ready for the last dinner old together, eating Italian and Indian food. The just married-spouses made their entrance on a venetian taxi boat. For family and friends a little fashion show was organised, everyone could be protagonists for a moment.
And definitely couldn’t miss the cutting of the cake, with some moving speeches from the relatives. Then… just a party to remember!
