Wedding in The Orangery Holland Park

A great blend of Indian and British culture was the background to Nina and Finn's wedding day. I started my coverage on Saturday at the Bride's house to witness the Tying of Turbans before setting off to the Orangery in Holland Park for the ceremony.

The beautiful floral decorations in the Orangery, including the flowers hanging across the windows and the mirrored wall, were created by Pollen Nation.

After the ceremony the Bride and Groom and their guests enjoyed drinks and canap├ęs in the sunshine, served by caterers Party Ingredients.

By early afternoon we were jumping aboard a London Bus and heading off to the reception at The Bombay Brasserie in South Kensington. On arrival at the the famous restaurant two short Indian ceremonies were performed for the couple after which everybody ate, beginning with a starter of Telicherry Pepper Fish Tikka followed by a fabulous buffet.

The newly weds were eventually waved off in a shower of rice but headed straight to the nearby Duke of Clarence pub to continue the celebrations.

Mr and Mrs Cornwall are now on Safari in South Africa before heading to Mauritius to finish their honeymoon.
