Reena and Kishore wedding was a four day destination wedding in Zanzibar, Tanzania by the beach. They only invited close friends and family to their wedding, approximately 200 people, from all over the world.
The first event of the wedding was stupid cupid night, they decided on this as it was right after Valentines Day. The decor for the event was little cupid’s sailing across the ocean, and they had red roses everywhere, and their guests were asked to wear red a well.
The second day was an Indian wedding ceremony called ‘Pithi’, the colours for which were inspired by the marigold flower, hence yellow and orange. The event was a fusion of Africa meets India. They had local vendors from Tanzania that made straw hats and ties of grass for the guests.
On the second day in the evening, they had another event, that was adorned with ceiling full of umbrellas, and served traditional Indian Street Food. This event was the ‘Sangeet’, where the close friends and family choreograph a dance to a few songs and perform it for the bride and groom.
