The wedding in pictures

We had a fantastic time at our friends' wedding. The couple looked so radiant and happy. We were blessed with good weather, food and company. The hilltop where the wedding ceremony was held was spared the thunderstorm ravaging our island yesterday. Dark clouds that were hanging above our heads cleared and a rainbow, in fact a double rainbow, appeared after the solemnisation ceremony.

Enjoy the photos.

Putting up signs at the foot of the hill.

Plenty of drinks to last throughout the night.

The bride is a vegetarian, so she catered Indian vegetarian food for the party.

Pretty balloons and decoration.

Applying the bindi, forehead decoration to complete the Bollywood look.

The bride, resplendent in orange, making a grand entrance with photographer in tow.

The solemnisation ceremony.

The kiss. A passionate one!

Happy couple flanked by solemniser and witnesses.


Another happy couple at the wedding.

"I grant thee a pot of gold at the end of me rainbow"

The bride with a guest. She was about to release the bunch of balloons with our hand written wishes tagged to each balloon.

The couple was made to play games at night. The blindfolded bride was asked to identify the groom's hands. Of course she didn't know he wasn't even standing in line.

The blindfolded groom had to feel a whole bunch of legs, including hairy ones. He was really good at this!

Tossing of bouquet. Funny, most of the ladies were quite reluctant to catch the bouquet.

We played with sparklers too.

There was some dancing. The bride and a surprised Kiwi.

At the end of the night, the bride was so sloshed (she didn't drink alot but she doesn't hold liquor very well), she fell asleep under the stars. While the star of the night was sleeping, the guests came out to play!

Call me Angus...

My kilt is in the Black Watch tartan of the Royal Highlanders who served in India. Besides I paired it with a shirt my niece bought me from Mumbai, so technically I was on theme : P

Now I know why you need to get that Indian outfit. Very rare wedding at the hilltop. I love your photo holding that "pot of gold" :):)
