From the vibrant and elaborately decorated sarees to the turmeric paste that was applied to the future bride and groom’s skin as part of the Bengali wedding celebrations, Rachel and Shoaib’s Gaye Holud was bursting with colour and merriment.

Throughout the evening, guests greeted and congratulated the happy couple by feeding them sweets and applied turmeric to their face and hands. Guests were then later treated to a delicious buffet and entertained by the groom’s family members and friends who performed dances and sang in honour of the bride and groom to be.
