Gareth and Hariney – An Elegant Pastel Wedding
Gareth and Hariney met whilst working in a hospital, and after two happy years of dating, Gareth popped the question with a beautiful solitaire diamond on a plain gold band. The couple planned over an 18-month engagement and eventually tied the knot in a gorgeous pastel-themed ceremony at Eynsham Hall, Oxfordshire.
This stunning event was a true blend of the bride and groom’s Sri Lankan and Welsh heritage (even including some friendly competition in the form of a game of rounders in the garden!). A Welsh men’s choir sang at the outdoor ceremony, and all 300 guests enjoyed a delicious 3-course Indian meal at the reception.
The bride Hariney wore a beautiful Rosa Clara wedding dress with sheer full-length sleeves and an off-the-shoulder neckline, which she picked out for the delicate lace. Her seven bridesmaids wore a combination of pastel pink and blue gowns in both short and long lengths, and sheer lace bodices to match the bride. The seven groomsmen and the groom wore smart suits in a mix of black and navy, for a black tie feel to match the formal venue.
In the evening, Hariney and Gareth treated their guests to a free bar with a variety of cocktails, and guests danced the night away to a live band and DJ until 3 o’clock in the morning! After the big day, the couple jetted off to spend a month touring the USA, driving Route 66 to end in up in New York City.
