A Hindu wedding at Villa Aurelia in Rome with a western twist

Any Cakies planning a wedding with both western and Indian traditions? Meghna + Naveen, who are from India but grew up in Hong Kong and London, weren’t into the idea of a full traditional Indian wedding, but they did want to include a Hindu ceremony and traditional fashion. So, they found a way to “deconstruct” the traditional wedding, and be a little more playful with the design. Rather then having two ceremonies, for example, they set it up like a western wedding, but performed a Hindu ceremony at the end of the aisle. Cherry On Top helped them execute their vision to a T, so it fit in perfectly with the grandeur that is Villa Aurelia Rome.

Thanks to Monica Leggio & Giuseppe Marano for sharing the photos!
