Indie & Andrew | Bristol Sikh Temple & Rookery Manor
A symphony of colour, love and life is one way of describing Indie and Andrew’s wedding! Two cultures, two ceremony’s, two wedding dresses, two suits and 16 hours of celebrations; From beginning to end a day of festivities which we will never forget!
We arrived in Bristol at six in the morning and the getting ready process was well and truly underway! There was such a lot happening with everyone preparing for the Sikh ceremony later that morning. Indie emerged from her room after a frenzy of hair, make-up, jewellery and dress adornment looking so beautiful we were rendered speechless.
Later, Andy and a crowd of the most beautiful and colourfully clothed guests awaited Indie’s arrival at The Siri Guru Singh Sabha Gurdwara in Bristol. A truly glorious ceremony was followed by more lovely rituals for the newly married couple at Indie’s parents’ home.
The majority of the guests then drove South West to Rookery Manor. The venue, a 16th century estate surrounded by Somerset countryside was where the rest of the day’s celebrations would take place. Some guests took a rest in their rooms whilst others enjoyed the gardens and a drink before the second ceremony of the day when Indie and Andy once again emerged looking spectacular in their sumptuous burgundy, velvet outfits!
After the ceremony was over it was time for photos, food, and the most heartfelt of speeches where each of the couple was warmly welcomed into the others family. The day was then finished with the dancing to end all dancing. What a treat!
So thanks to Indie and Andy for inviting us to share a small part of your terrific day, it really was a delight and a privilege and we wish you all the very best in your future together!
