Real Wedding: Channa and Capucine’s Hindu/Catholic All Weekend Wedding
A big thank you to Louise Bjorling for sharing these photographs with the readers of the blog today… so without further ado onto the photos!
Channa and Capucine’s wedding weekend was a truly, multicultural celebration.
Channa who is of Sri Lankan descent and Capucine who originates from France, had a double whammy of a wedding with a beautifully colourful Hindu ceremony at the Oshwal Centre on the Friday, and on the Saturday their guests were invited to the stunning All Saints Pastoral Centre for a Catholic ceremony. Guests and family came together from France, Sri Lanka and the UK to celebrate the couple’s full on weekend event!
The Oshwal Centre is a perfect and spacious venue for a Hindu ceremony: The foyer was decorated up for the introduction ceremony, where the bride’s brother and the groom exchange garlands and rings and welcome each other as family. The hall was decorated with a beautiful backdrop, a pillar- entrance, a red carpeted walk and a stage for the main ceremony to take place. The company Rangeela Arts were involved in turning the venue into a stunning grand hall.
After the ceremony, Capucine and Channa enjoyed a portrait session on the grounds together with London wedding photographer Louise Bjorling. The Oshwal Centre which is situated on the outskirts of Potters Bar, has some really fab opportunities for portraits: wild forests, a Japanese garden and of course, an authentic temple. For a second you might actually think that you’ve been transferred to somewhere in Asia. And then you remember that actually… this is just a bit north of London!
Saturday’s celebration offered a complete contrast for their guests, as they were invited to a very traditional French Catholic ceremony in the All Saints Pastoral Centre near St Albans.
