Mandap Set-up

The couple hired Birmingham Botanical Gardens for their event which included a Mandap Ceremony for 100 Guests and a Wedding Reception for 400 Guests. The day started at 9:00am with a breakfast set up for 100 Guests. The breakfast was a fine selection of traditional yet delectable finger foods such as Khasta Samosas, Pakoras with a sweet ending of Sticky Jalebis. Once the Guests were full on breakfast they were ushered into the Terrace Suite for the Mandap Ceremony to begin. As the Mandap ceremony took place, the Palm Lounge was transformed for a Drinks Reception. With the Palm Lounge having direct access to the Gardens, it was perfect sunny day for Guests to enjoy their drinks and canapés in the sunshine and to welcome the additional 300 guests. The couple joined the Drinks Reception, taking photo with family & friends around the Gardens. Once the Drinks Reception ended, the guests made their way into the Garden Suite to enjoy the rest of the evening with musical entertainment from a Live Band.
