Have you recently got engaged and looking for support to plan your Asian wedding? Or are you already going through your Asian wedding planning journey and looking for some guidance and/or support? Or are you looking to plan your own Asian wedding completely?
Well you’re in the right place. This article looks at whether you should have a wedding planner or a wedding coordinator or plan your own Asian wedding. These are very different types of services that are offered at Rohita Pabla Wedding & Events. We will dive into some of the details of each of these services to help you decide on what works best for yourselves.
So, lets jump straight into it…
Let’s start with a wedding planner. You may have thought to yourself why I need to pay a wedding planner to plan my Asian wedding. This is a great question and the answers are endless. One of the key deciders of having a wedding planner tends to be the cost as planning an Asian wedding is always on a budget. However, people look at the cost of hiring a wedding planner and think OMG how much.
As an example, you may have a budget of £60,000 to plan your whole wedding. You may get a quote from a wedding planner to plan your wedding at £6000. You think to yourself, well that’s 10% of my overall budget that I could spend on the wedding itself if I plan it myself. Technically speaking your absolutely correct. However, having a wedding planner, you will tend to recoup a lot of the cost through the expertise and network that the wedding planner has built up.
Hello Brides To Be,
So it’s Chelsea Flower Show 2017, so what a perfect time to see the beautiful flowers the world has to offer for your big day. Held in the grounds of Royal Hospital Chelsea in Chelsea, London since 1912. It is known as one of the most famous landscape and flower garden shows in the UK and also in the world, attracting the public and famous celebrities from near and far.
Many brides have the dilemma of which flowers to pick for their big day and many are attracted towards traditional roses in either white or red. Now many people are starting to look at what else is out there as they want their weddings to be different, unique or just that one wedding that stands out.
Making the nervous step’s towards something different can be abit scary, especially as people don’t tend to see the mix of different colours at an Indian Wedding, but many more people are breaking the mould.
Below we have collected some beautiful inspiration for you of how different flowers, colours and textures can work for your big day. We’ve also added in a handy flower chart by season to help.

Hello Brides To Be,
So recently a Bride and Groom asked me to look for a small venue in central London for there civil & wedding breakfast and I stumbled across this little treasure… Fortnum and Mason est 1707. Fortnum and Mason known for it’s afternoon teas, hampers and fine gifts is also a beautiful small wedding venue with multiple rooms on offer.
And I got the opportunity to see this for myself. Fortnum and Mason opened its doors for a Westminster Council Wedding Open Day, offering brides, grooms & clients the opportunity to see the venue and what is has to offer. And oh was a wooowed…. from the Boardroom, The Tasting Room, The Drawing Room & The Crypt.
From weddings to breakfasts, drinks receptions to private parties a celebration at Fortnums is always an experience to remember. With four beautiful dining spaces, four restaurants all available for exclusive hire its a perfect location to host any event!
Thank You Fortnum & Mason for the invite.
Do I need a theme for my wedding?
Many of my clients ask me…. “Do I need a decor theme for my Wedding?”. My answer… YES DEFINITELY! Not only does this make life easier for you, but also gives a clear vision to your suppliers.
Many people use their favourite colour as their Wedding theme which is also a good idea, but having a concept/central theme makes everything easier and ideas flow better. Not only that but it can be a lot of good fun!
Perhaps think of something which relates to you and your partner, this could be the location of where they proposed to you, your favourite holiday location or something in keeping with the theme of where you’re getting married.
The options are truly endless, so what I say is grab yourselves a piece of paper or a board and start a mood board around your favourite things.
If you’re struggling with your wedding planning and concept ideas please do contact me, I offer bespoke planning packages to suit your needs.
So we’re back for 2017 with a bang and new projects bubbling away. But we would like to flash back to 2016, when we caught up with Karisha Pithwa, owner of Crème De La Cakes and her show stopper of a cake “Enchanted Garden Theme Hanging Wedding Cake at Grosvenor House”
Luxury wedding cake company Crème De La Cakes had clients Kish and Kithy come to see her with one request “ We would like something unique and bespoke”. Karisha then set about creating something just that!
Her surroundings….. non other than The Great Ballroom within Grosvenor House one of London’s most sort after wedding venues.
The theme for the glamorous wedding reception held at Grosvenor House, a stunning ‘Enchanted Garden’ Theme, which Karisha used as her inspiration for her grand 17 tier bespoke wedding cake suspended in a 12ft birdcage.
Karisha says “ No two clients are the same and it’s my job to ensure that each client’s custom designed cake is bespoke. My aim as a luxury asian wedding cake designer is to ensure that each work of art leaves our bride and groom as well as their guests speechless”
“A showstopper wedding cake for this lavish affair!”
The ‘Enchanted Garden’ theme bespoke 17 tier luxury wedding cake was adorned with pretty lace detailing and beautiful pearl frame work encasing the couples initials. This was delicately piped by hand and then hand painted with antique gold to match the 12 ft birdcage.
As a luxury wedding cake designer, Creme De La Cakes also provided the beautiful floral work around the superior wedding cake
The team here all agree it was sure a showstopper of a wedding cake for a lavish affair!
