Bhavna & Nash get married in eastern elegance

Bhavna Deonarain and Yash Haripersaad sealed their long courtship with a regal celebration in Durban.


We chose Mount Edgecombe Country Club as it offered us all the elements we wanted. We had a winter wedding, so while we had the luxury of being indoors, we still got to experience the natural beauty of the outdoors. The ceremony was held out on the deck and moved into the Kingfisher Room for the reception, and as the sun went down over the golf course, the venue transformed into a fairy tale.


We went for vintage Indian with a modern twist – contemporary while still being true to tradition. Our vision was that the day would be the ultimate celebration of our love story. Being best friends for nine years and courting for eight, we’d waited a long time for our happily-ever-after, so it had to be a day filled with love, laughter and our closest family and friends.


It was the dress of my dreams. Handmade in India, it took more than a month to make and was inspired by the latest bridal trends at India Fashion Week. There was something so regal and romantic about the print, and the simplicity of the cut immediately got my attention. Pure perfection!


The decor was simple and sophisticated with a combination of colour and texture. A carved antique wooden chair was the focal point of the altar, while tables were draped in lace with wooden candelabras as centrepieces, and little carved jewellery boxes spilt out red roses and pearls.


Authentic Indian vegetarian cuisine was the order of the day. We served a vegetable breyani with dhal and two different curries accompanied by Indian breads. For dessert, there was soji, a semolina pudding that’s  traditionally served at weddings, and malva pudding.


Every few minutes while the traditional rituals were going on, Yash would do or say something silly that would make me laugh! We had so much fun during the ceremony. It’s moments like these that make the best memories.
