Jesse & Trish’s Tamil Wedding & Reception | Umgeni Road, Toti Hall, Durban

Finally, one of this blog’s most avid supporter gets featured! Trish is nothing short of vivacious with personality galore. It was a joy to shoot her wedding to Jesse on a Wednesday followed by a reception at Toti Hall a few days later. The venue was transformed into a spectacular sight thanks to Events by Design.


What is your most special memory of your wedding /  reception?
And the winner is……. “Our  first official dance” – Yes, we are that crazy couple who never attended dance lessons. So we bravely graced the dance floor with 4 x left feet!

Why did you opt to have your ceremony and reception on 2  separate days?
It never seizes to amaze me  why we feel bored during traditional weddings so we felt it was ideal to  have a traditional wedding ceremony on the Wednesday which was so  intimate with our family and friends closest to us in support of team  Jesse and Trish and in a blink of an eye the rings were on and we  were good to go.

What was the hardest part of the planning process?
The most difficult part of the planning process for me was the fact that i am a little stress-pot. Advice  for future brides:- Do your research attend bridal fairs, match up colour trends and never settle for anything less! Once you confirm your service  providers “trust them to do what they do best”!

Did  you experience any unexpected turns during the wedding / reception and how  did you handle it?
What would a  wedding/reception be without a few obstacles and hiccups? 🙂 Obstacle No.  1 – Mother nature and her fierce RAIN! However alls well and ended well I  soon learn’t that unfortunately we can not control everything that life  throws our way but we can control the way we face it- just take the set  backs in your stride and fight it with a gracious smile and wave!!!

Any advice for brides-to-be?
Remember that you and the only people who are aware of the set backs- your guests think it is all part of  the programe. Besides your family and friends are there to support you on  the biggest day of your lives… I believe in planning and i was 100%  involved… Your personal style and influences are visible and  instrumental in the outcome the last thing any bride would want is to pitch up on her big day as a guest, so enjoy every moment of the planning  process afterall we only get married once right?

Looking back, is there  anything you would have done differently?
Would not change it for the  world! It was undoubted the best day of the rest of our lives together  …”Lets all just get happiness wasted”.
