Were there any elements that were important for you to incorporate?

The elements of our wedding that was super important for us in incorporating was around celebrating my Indian heritage. Whilst we knew we didn’t want a 5-daywedding (yikes!), we did want to ensure the meaning of certain rites and rituals were included within the ceremony + the vibrancy, colour and fun was included within the styling and florals.

We managed to find the Hindu Civil celebrant Sudesh Johar, who we worked really closely with to curate a ceremony that was really meaningful to both Thomas and I and our families. We loved that Hindu wedding ceremonies is more than just about two individuals coming together, but rather the joining of two families. The ceremony included the traditional welcoming of the Groom and his family by the Bride’s family, the legal vows, as well as a garlanding ceremony and tying of the knot + saptapadi (seven steps). The Seven Steps, is where the bride and groom take seven steps around a fire (in our case, 7 candles) signifying 7 promises they make to each other. Thomas + I wrote our own promises based on the traditional Hindu principles, but also the values by which we were raised by each of our families. The dupatta that joined us as we made these promises was tied around our wrists by each of our mothers, signifying their blessing on behalf of our extended families.

Our styling direction was very clear; bold and bright, with lots of texture and light, which is really representative of most Indian weddings and Indian culture as a whole.)

We were looking to have a cross cultural wedding and we were so happy to find Sudesh. She was such a pleasure to work with and was able to to put together a ceremony that incorporated everything we were after. Sudesh was very thorough in the planning process and was in constant communication and kept asking for our feedback so we'd end up with a perfect ceremony. Unfortunately, due to Covid we had to change a lot of what we were looking to do, which was never too much trouble for Sudesh. She was very flexible and really did help make our day very special. Thank you so much for all your work Sudesh.

Congratulations to Sudesh for becoming a Civil Marriage Celebrant. Sudesh is a diligent and dedicated people’s person. She is committed to fine details for every task she takes on. Her interior home decorating skills become very noticeable as soon as one enters her house. She is currently active in voluntary work in the local community as a Justice of Peace and Ethic teacher for primary school children. She also generously supports few charitable institutions on regular basis. I am very delighted to say that Sudesh is a spiritual and ethical minded person and believe in all Faiths. She also speaks two of Indian languages and will be able to conduct the ceremonies in a delightful manner making your special day a seamless one. I would highly recommend anyone to choose Sudesh to be their marriage celebrant.”
