Do you love greenery and pops of colour? Do you love fusion fetes with amazing food? If so, Demelza and Shaan’s wedding will knock your socks off! Our sweet couple tied the knot in June of 2018, with the type of wedding details that make our hearts sing! This wedding is the perfect example of how a space can be completely transformed with drapery, lighting and greenery.
Particular details that we love include the use of greenery and edison bulbs to create a unique and magical mandap design and that this carried through nicely into the reception. I love the secret garden feel of this mandap style. I’m also a huge fan of open concept mandap designs, especially for larger weddings because there really isn’t a bad seat in the house for any of your guests. The drapery and lighting was soft and elegant, and the wispy greenery juxtaposed nicely against the bride’s colourful attire.
Speaking of attire, another detail that I loved is how stylish our couple is – they looked like movie stars the entire weekend. From Hindu ceremony to reception, each outfit was incredible! It’s hard to decide on a favourite, but each outfit suited the room design perfectly. We loved Demelza’s pink lengha, as well as her white reception gown.
Demelza and Shaan’s reception design required a room flip from Hindu ceremony to reception as guests mingled and the couple refreshed and changed outfits. We love, love, love the versatile design of the stage, which incorporated the mandap detailing and added a ton of greenery with bright colours onto the reception tables. The abundant use of greens made for very sumptuous centerpieces that popped against the backdrop of the hall. Hats off to the creative team at Xclusive Designs for creating this masterpiece – it is definitely one of our favourites from 2018!

Toronto Fusion Wedding
Today on the blog, we are featuring one of our own Toronto fusion weddings from August 2014. We wanted to give you lovely readers an idea of a simple fusion Hindu wedding. The bride is Guyanese (of mixed religious descent) and the groom is Trinidadian, of Hindu descent. They wanted to have a traditional ceremony with a fun, Western style reception. Enjoy the gallery!
The bride and groom decided to have a traditional Hindu wedding on the first day of their wedding weekend. The second day of their Toronto fusion wedding weekend was their traditional Western wedding reception. This is a fun idea because each day had a completely different look! The wedding ceremony was held in Brampton at the Chinmaya Mission Toronto . The reception was held at Red Rose Convention Centre .
On the first day, the bride and groom wore traditional Indian attire. The bride wore a red lehenga with beautiful mehendi (henna) adorning her hands. The groom wore a kurta with a matching turban. On the second day of their Toronto fusion wedding, the bride wore a traditional white wedding gown and the groom wore a three-piece suit. The bride and groom purchased their Indian attire in Brampton and Mississauga. The bride purchased her wedding gown in Unionville. Enjoy the professional photos, taken by Sabih Usman of Accentuated Moments Photography , now based out of Calgary. Enjoy!
