The Iranian wedding fair took place in the rook and raven gallery on the 19th of February. A very stunning place located in London. Being a gallery it was perfect in size and very open. It was a very lovely, tradition fair being the only one of its kind in London. It was hosted by Ellie and her team, Ellite Wedding Planners http://www.elliteweddingplanners.co.uk.
We received a very nice review from Flor-unikon http://www.flor-unikon.com/ “Easy Gourmet’s wedding table, a grand circular setting for a wedding banquet, was delightful. The attention to detail with herbs is something we have come to expect from this flourishing catering company.” Flor-unikon is a unique Scandinavian style flower workshop in clerkenwell, the design district of London. They had a beautiful display of their seasonal flowers and while the models were going around in the stunning wedding dresses they were using flor-unikon hand tied bouquets for the show. They had very talented photographers all with completely different style. My world of beauty photography – http://www.facebook.com/myworldofbeauty were there who we know from also doing Ali and Ellie’s wedding that we organized and catered for. (picture below) There photographs are very glamorous. another photographer we were stunned by was barrie downie. http://www.bdweddingphotography.co.uk/wedding%20portfolio/#/4/48 the pictures he does of couples/newlyweds are very beautiful and loving. We had our own table full of our tasty food which people really seemed to enjoy. Adams catering hire was part of the Iranian wedding fair. They supplied us with two beautiful table displays. The first table was very sheek, black linnen, white napkins, sheek range chinaware, milano cutlery, beautiful crystal chiavari chairs, signature glassware and 5 light silver candelabra. The second table was vintage style set with elegant jesmond cutlery, mix and match vintage chinaware, biscuit coloured linnen, old fashioned champagne saucers and lime wash shimmering chairs. you can see more about adams catering hire on their website. www.cateringhire.co.uk/. Award winner Rosalind miller was there with her amazing cakes. We recommended Rosalind on our wedding blog due to her creative and stunning cakes. As you can see by the picture’s we have added from the wedding fair she designed these cakes perfect for a Iranian wedding there wasn’t any cakes that looked similar which is why we love Rosalind millers cakes! Go look at more of her beautiful cakes on her official website http://www.rosalindmillercakes.com/. Overall it was a really nice wedding fair for soon to be Iranian brides.
Going to the Iranian wedding fair made us very interested in the traditional wedding ceremony and we decided to do a little research. Iranian weddings are like an event. They celebrate with glory and distinction normally in the presence of a large party, never quiet or small. Iranian’s weddings are the biggest of all the occasions. They have a very special ceremony that takes place in a lovely decorated room with flowers and a wonderful decorated design on the floor which is known as ‘sofreh Aghd’ The sofreh aghd is believed to have come from the Zoroastrians, thousands of years ago. The bride and groom normally wear the colour white to symbolise purity and innocence. ‘Sofreh’ is the arrangement in front of the bride and groom and ‘Aghd’ is the legal ceremony. Sofreh aghd is a set of items symbolising their beliefs that it will bring blessings for the bride and groom and their marriage life together. Every item placed on the sofreh aghd represents characters and qualities which the couple will have to live a happy blessed life that’s everlasting. Although sofreh aghd is a tradition it can be personalised for multicultural weddings to represent both cultures to create a unique and unforgettable day. Nowadays the sofreh aghd colour scheme normally matches the bridesmaid dresses and/or the venue.
