A Peacock Inspired Goan Catholic Wedding {Goa, India}

2015 Jan 30 - by Preeti
We're jetsetting off to the beautiful beach city of Goa, India today! Here, we are celebrating the wedding of Nadia and Malcolm at one of the local historic Catholic churches. After their wedding, they enjoyed the beach (who wouldn't) with friends for a photoshoot with wedding photographer Ayesha Madgavkar.

Their wedding was filled with bubbles, smiles, and a good dosage of peacock wedding style!

Bride Nadia shares her wedding story with us:

Tell us about the wedding

We are both Goan Catholic and chose to celebrate it in Goa so we could have all our friends and family present. We got married at the Our Lady of Rosary Church at Curca which was hillside.The ceremony was very traditional. We then left for the beach to pop a bottle of champagne with friends and do a small photoshot at the Shiridao beach.

Post that was a our reception at Coco Loco where we intented to keep the atmosphere more informal with music and dancing, welcome drinks (pucn) our own diy photobooth. We rephrased the quote "Till death do us party".

I wore a traditional white ballgown tulle dress. I kept altering the same dress from having sleeves and a long veil in church to keep it traditional and a one shoulder sleeve for the reception with just a flower in my hair.

What was the inspiration for your wedding?

Colour which was drawn from a peacock. An electric blue with an emerald green and gold for the extra glitter.

What was the hardest part about wedding planning?

Time Management!

Did you do any DIY (do it yourself) or special projects/things at the wedding?

We tried to make most of the stuff with the help of family and friends. Our invitations and entourages accessories like the boutonnieres, the headgear for the girls, were all handmade. We also made a lot of deco items for the church and table centerpieces. We also had our very own diy photo booth.

What was your favorite part of the wedding?

All of it was special :)

What advice do you have for future brides/grooms-to-be?

Keep calm & enjoy.

No matter how much you stress before your wedding. Make sure you let go of it on your wedding day, it comes once and you have to enjoy it.

Thank you for sharing!
