Sonya and Prabhdeep’s spectacular Indian wedding celebrations spanned over 10 extraordinary days in Toronto. From the bride and groom’s individual Sangeets to the Sikh wedding in the morning and traditional wedding in the afternoon, we’ve got front row seats to all the events.
August 30: Traditional wedding. Indian customs were met with a contemporary twist by way of pastels for the second part of the wedding ceremonies. White furniture and dreamy florals evoked an everlasting enchanted feel on all the guests.
August 31: The Reception. Making the guests feel as though they were entering a magical setting was the goal for Sonya and Prabhdeep’s final wedding festivity. LED backdrops were used for lighting, bold green and purples took over the colour scheme and a combination of high-technology and Harry Potter-esque accents were visualized throughout. The bride’s favourite moment: when Prabhdeep and his groomsmen performed a surprise dance.
August 22: Prabhdeep’s Sangeet. As the name suggests, the Sangeet is all about dance and music. It is one of the most enjoyable ceremonies before the wedding and initially, was organized only by the bride’s family. However, with changing times it is now observed by the groom’s family as well. For the groom’s Sangeet, the desired atmosphere was a Punjabi village. Everyone wore traditional attire and stationery was based on truck decor in India.
August 23: Sonya’s Sangeet. For the bride’s celebration, a more tropical Old Bollywood glam atmosphere was created. Bright colours such as fuchsia, orange and gold came together in the decor and furniture, and a custom bollywood movie poster of the couple was used as the dance floor.
August 30: Sikh Wedding. Known as “Anand Karaj” the Sikh ceremony represents the ‘Blissful Union” between two souls. For Sonya and Prabhdeep’s traditional ceremony held at the Scarborough Gurdwara, approximately 700 people were in attendance. Quirky elements were brought forth in the decor through stationery pieces to make traditional material appear a bit more humourous. As for the groom’s shoe stealing game, a different spin was taken on. Instead of people wrestling and fighting over the shoes, Prabhdeep created a scavenger hunt for the girls.
