Jessica & Charles

A wonderful Indian Wedding: Jessica & Charles amaze us with an event that makes us breathe the great atmosphere of a wedding in India!

Bringing the magic of Indian marriage to Europe

While the Indian style of this event is inspired by the origins of the bride, the wedding venues are those of the groom. The ceremony is in Switzerland close to the French border, at the Eglise de Notre-Dame des Grâces Grand (in Lancy), and the reception is in France at the Indian restaurant Les Jardins de Malyar (in Saint-Genis-Pouilly) .

The fame of Indian marriage knows no bounds. It is a world-famous type of event, and its appeal is universal. A style full of colors, celebrations, dances, jewels, outfits with attention to the smallest details. Even in a solemn place like this church near Lake Geneva, Indian traditions fill the air with their elegance of liveliness and splendor. And Jessica and Charles are the fabulous protagonists.

Indian Wedding and its traditions

As you can see in the photos, the wedding rite is full of Indian traditions: in perfect Hindu practice, the groom puts the Mangalsutra necklace around the bride’s neck, the most important jewel of the Indian ceremony, which indicates that the woman is married.

The location of Jessica and Charles’s reception is an Indian restaurant, which gives us the opportunity to taste the delights of typical cuisine. Before starting the celebrations, the bride and groom and guests change their clothes, and the women wear colorful sarees (in Indian weddings, outfits include bright and lively colors). Another well known female tradition is the Mehndi, that is henna tattoos drawn on the hands. In the photogallery you can see the very rich and elaborate drawings, which in India are an art.

Indian weddings are made not only by clothes and colors, but also by lots of music and dancing. There are musicians with typical Indian instruments, who play and animate the dances. The groom and the bride are carried on chairs raised by friends, to then exchange symbolic necklaces and thus start the toasts.

Inside the restaurant there is a large space dedicated to dancing, because in the Indian tradition the marriage is full of music and dancing! And in fact, together with Jessica and Charles all the guests start to move to the rhythm of music, in an exciting evening full of joy and fun.

Then comes the moment of speeches from friends and relatives, and video projections that tell the love story of the couple. And with these photos we tell the story of the wedding day, which made us live the extraordinary experience of an Indian wedding!
