This was my first Punjabi wedding and I feel very blessed to have been part of the weeklong celebrations! The week culminated to a beautiful beach wedding in a beautiful beach resort. I am also told that this was the first Punjabi wedding ceremony on the beach in all of Malaysia and it was truly a magical day which I will not forget for a very very long time :)
The early morning started with the beach holy ceremony and right after that was the receiving the Groom ceremony in a hall nearby. The lunch reception then followed which was a very elegant yet casual affair as it was on the beach. The groom had arranged for live music and lots of dancing. He even made a song for the lovely bride! He and his talented friends then gave a superb rock concert right in the middle of the beach :)
I will post the video montage in a while so you guys can have a peep on what happened the whole week :)
As this was a full day outdoor affair, the makeup has to be long wearing so I used waterproof makeup. Hair also will pose a big problem, especially on the beach because humidity and the heat will make hair goes frizzy and difficult to style. Fortunately, the bride has beautiful skin to work with and I just need to pamper it with lots of moisture before makeup so that it won't go dry as the day wears out.
My bride loves to have her hair down, which she has for all the wedding events with exception to the morning holy ceremony. A traditional updo was called for not only to give good support for the heavily beaded veil but also because the high and thick shape of the bun will give a much fuller and beautiful finish to the rich veil. Can you believe that is all her natural hair in that bun?
I wish you both and your families much love and blessings from the heaven!
