Nelson & Karishma

We have a West Coast Wedding to feature today! We are also happy to hear that Tie The Thali played a part as being a resource for this brides’ wedding planning. Scroll below to see the full feature.

Firstly, I will start by saying that Tie The Thali was an incredibly inspiring source during my wedding planning.  I often would update myself on the different themes, styles, trends, etc. that was shared on the website and Instagram.

 I always dreamed of having a truly traditional South Indian wedding, my focus was to make this happen without so much effort (keeping it simple and elegant).  Needless to say, planning a wedding is never a walk in the park and living in Vancouver, Canada did not exactly make my South Indian dream as effortless as I hoped.  However, many great contacts in Toronto were able to bring me closer to my dream. 

Business talk aside, the love story between my new husband and I is what made every bit of my wedding perfect to me.  Both of us having hobbies in the arts – understanding one another’s spiritual side, and of course also being able to have a great night out together – it is something to never be taken for granted.  The music video we made belo is to tell the story of how we met, enjoy.

Both, mine and Nelsons families come from the Fiji Islands.  In Fiji, there is quite a mix of people who are originally from different parts of India.  My family is originally from Andra/Chennai and Nelsons Family mainly from Rajasthan/Northern India.  Nelson, being a North Indian – was fully supportive of my dreams.  Although I didn’t ask much of him, he made me and my family so proud.  By choosing to wear a mundu dhoti, and go along with all of our rituals – it really was a dream come true.
