In December, we were delighted to host our first Hindu wedding at East Afton Farmhouse, and honoured to be part of Ashima & Aditya’s traditional Vivaah Sanskar Ceremony. It was a beautiful, culturally rich event that incorporated the very essence of a Hindu ceremony; the physical, spiritual, and emotional union of two people, and the coming together of two families through prayer and celebration.
East Afton proved the perfect venue, allowing for two separate ceremonies to be held simultaneously by the bride and groom – one in the farmhouse and the other in the adjoining barn - before both families then came together for the marriage ceremony in the colourfully decorated stone barn, across the courtyard. Here, the traditional wedding rituals and blessings took place – a visually enchanting experience.
