Krupa and Soren live the modern day love story to tell. Working at the same professional service firm, they kicked off their story. Nailing long distance and a time gap, Soren declared her as his own. Krupa remembered waking up with a ring on her finger awestruck, she calls it her dream come true.
The 1920s Gatsby Themed Cocktail Party
Soren sported a crisp hand-tailored suit for the occasion from Toronto, and Krupa looked absolutely breathtaking in her Mori Lee (NYC). It was a cocktail ceremony to recall for generations to come, all with the dancing, the lights, the glitter and giggles.
The Pearls & Peacocks Wedding
Krupa had thought of everything to perfection. She had her wedding attire self-designed and made to fit by Alka Poddar from Mumbai, India. Going with the theme of peacocks and pearls, Krupa and Soren fit like perfect pieces of a puzzle through the morning proceedings of the Indian wedding rituals. Soren looked royal in his Riwaaz Couture ethnic wear.
In the Bride’s Words: Wedding Choices
To start with, we set our priorities. We didn’t want to follow the precedent and wanted to do something a little bit quirky and different, and something that was “us” as a couple. Both being from multicultural backgrounds, we wanted a fusion flavour to the events. We also wanted to involve all of our loved ones in the festivities. The rest just fell into place!
Krupa and Soren chose to have their Hindu wedding ceremony, civil wedding, and reception at the Alpheton Hall Barns in Suffolk, UK. A unique choice, the couple was able to incorporate a rustic charm to their events while keeping it beautiful and intimate with their closest family and friends.
Certain elements cost more than expected so we often had to step back & re-think. Also, we had a transatlantic engagement being that both were travelling a fair bit for work. Soren was already working in Canada and I was still in London, so the time differences and distance often got in the way. Nevertheless, along with all our loved ones and helpers, we made it work and incorporated the travel theme in our reception!
The Civil Ceremony & Reception
The evening set into a civil wedding followed by a Vintage Travel themed reception. Krupa floated like an angel down the aisle in her Panoply, New York dress. Soren was dashing at the reception ceremony wearing Austin Reed.
Words of Advice from Mr.& Mrs. Robertson
Think about what’s important to you both and what represents you as a couple – and make it personal! Most of all, enjoy all the moments, relax and smile! It truly is the best!
