Today’s wedding details starring Sumona Seth is full of so much glam that we had to dedicate at least three different features showcasing this stellar Indian wedding. For her traditional Hindu ceremony, the bride went all out to channel her inner Bengali Queen. Beauty By Tamanna was given up the very important task of dolling the bride and her bridesmaids up. Sumona wore a traditional red and gold sari draped in Bengali fashion complete with over the top jewelry and a stunning headpiece. The sari was especially special to the bride as she had traveled to Kolkata with her mother and wanted to ensure that the material of her dress was bensari in particular. After some charming shots with her bridesmaids captured by Mood Republic Studios it was time to head to Maritime Parc for the big ceremony! The groom came on a ferry to the park and then on a white Stallion from Equishare Baraat Horses to the gate of the venue. The gorgeous bride hid her face behind betel leaves while waiting to meet the groom and opted out of doing a first look which is out of tradition. Sankar Parial conducted the ceremony in the gorgeously decorated venue by House of Dipali and the groom looked absolutely adorable as he stole glances of his lovely wife. After the ceremony commenced, it was time for hungry guests to be treated to fine Indian cuisine from Moghul Caterers. Planning and design was executed flawlessly by Electric Karma. Sumona could not stop raving about Jose Tan with Mood Republic Studios and bringing his vision behind the camera lens. We can’t keep our eyes of this gorgeous bride whose forever tale is memorialized in our gallery. The bride spills her details down below - a must read!
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Oh so many but something that still makes me tear up is looking at Binny at the altar for the first time and both of us started crying. So much happiness and joy surrounded the two of us that we were what they call "bawling" for a quick second. I didn't see him before and do the pictures or the bride and groom reveal. We kept that very traditional and I only saw him after I brought down the paan leaves- Bengali tradition again (think Devdas).
For events other than your ceremony, please tell us as much as you would like about the decor, style, dances, and all the special details.
I was a trained Indian classical dancer and danced all my life and it was very important that I express my love for Binny through my dancing. I basically turned my wedding into Dance Camp as my bridesmaid called it. Our wedding is to be featured on Smithsonian on a show called Monsoon Weddings, they were ecstatic that I was an actress and dancer and wanted to see a lot of that. That definitely put the pressure on me to make sure I put on a good show as this is going to be on T.V. Our wedding felt like it was on a reality show. We had our own camera and video crew and then there was production crew all over. The guests truly enjoyed it as from time to time they were getting interviewed. They went with us everywhere. Picking out my Mandap at the decorators to our dance rehearsals.
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Every Bride should focus on what this marriage signifies to them and at the end of the day they will be united to their soulmate, best friend and confidante. Enjoy every bit because it goes by very fast and when all the chaos is over, you will wish you could go back and do it all over again. At least that's how I felt. Let the little things go because the bigger picture is way more important. Focus on the good energy and always find the silver lining. If you didn't get your favorite dress, or most desired venue, your soon to be spouse with stand next to you anywhere, and think you're the most beautiful woman regardless of anything.
