30 Jul Milton Keynes Sikh Wedding – Humjot and Bhav
We were grateful to be so local for Humjot and Bhav’s Milton Keynes Sikh Wedding as we needed to be on site to cover the getting ready part of the day at 6.30am as we were due at the temple at 8.15. So with the alarm set early and the dogs walked in a daze, we set off to cover what turned out to be one of the most memorable wedding days we have covered.
Bhav arrived at the Gurdwara in a fabulous VW camper van, courtesy of Calico Moon and the ceremonial exchanging of garlands took place which signifies the joining of the two families. The ceremony followed a lovely breakfast and we were given unrestricted access during the service.
We then moved onto to Stoke Park Pavilions, which is one of our all time favourite venues. It never fails to delight the guests and it is always a treat to catch up with Sarah at Sweet Events, who manages each event held at Stoke Park, although on our way we came through what can only be described as torrential rain. Turns out, it was the best thing ever, as we got to go inside the seldom opened west pavilion and it was like walking into a secret place and I have to say the light in there was just magical, so hooray for rain!
Humjot and Bhav then retired to a local hotel to change whilst the guests were entertained and fed like kings with a selection of starters. After the starters and some excellent speeches had been delivered, it was time to party and oh my, this crowd seriously knows how to party. It was fantastic and the DJ crew were seriously, some of the best we’ve experienced. By this time, the sun had come out so before the main course was served,everyone made the most of the sun and joined the happy couple on the other side of the pond for the biggest group shot ever taken !
Back to partying until 8.00om when we left to return to Humjot’s family home while we waiting for Bhav to come to claim his bride. Some of the best negotiating was completed by the ladies at the door resulting in a significant lump of cash being handed over, but clearly Bhav felt it was worth every penny. It is a sad portion of the day when the Bride finally leaves her family home for the last time and joins her husband and her new inlaws. We closed our coverage of this sensational Milton Keynes Sikh wedding at Bhav’s family home which began once again with a negotiated entry into the house as a married couple and followed by games and the final rituals.
It was a magnificent day and an honour to be involved. We’d love to hear from you if you are planning your own Milton Keynes Sikh wedding or indeed any style of ceremony as we just love being part of a couples most important day. Get in touch x
