Colleague's Wedding

Posted by Dawn at Sunday, November 29, 2009
Today I attended my colleague, Faten's wedding at Hyatt Hotel. Went there with Sarah after church service. It was a very nice unique wedding as its an Indian Muslim Wedding. Each of our seats were labelled with our names...how personal!



The ballroom was nice and cosy.


Here's the couple's first walk-in. Faten's husband looked like some kind of Bollywood actor. Oh by the way, their wedding photoshoot was one of the best I have ever seen as they went all the way to Perth to capture the shots and the pictures and costumes were all so nice!


After that, came the announcement to proceed to the next door ballroom to get our food. Then did I realised it was a buffet style lunch. Was slightly disappointed as I was too used to being served in a wedding and its kind of troublesome. But then again, the food all made it worth my effort as it was absolutely delicious! I love any kind of food with lots of spices and so, my love for Indian cuisine.



The table of appetisers were as many dishes than the main course ones!




There were all sorts of curry to go with my naan bread. I simply loved it! Here's what I took!

And my mains..


Then time for desserts. It was another small room filled with desserts. There was an kulfi (ice cream) station serving Pista (pistachio) kulfi and saffron kulfi! All so yummy! There were different toppings to go with like walnuts with honey, mango sauce, strawberry sauce etc.





The strawberries were huge and sweet. Reminds me of the USA Driscoll ones which I used to have when I was in the States. Size was as big as my palm...but these were smaller but very sweet. And the chocolate cakes were heavenly. It had to be since it was from Mezza9- my trusted cake shop in Hyatt!





Then there was the couple's second walk in where they donned on their traditional costume. Faten looked stunning! They looked like they just walked out of a fairy tale book!

There were drummers walking in before them and leading them the way. How exciting and interesting.





After the entertainmant and humourous speech by the groom's cousin, we went up to take pictures with the couple!


Really enjoyed this particular wedding! So memorable!
