AFB Family Wedding: Groom's choice, kidswear and my sister's outfit

In my last post, I wrote about the beautiful geometric print black, white and gold anarakali dress I wore to a close family wedding, now I wanted to share some of the other outfits from the wedding, starting with the groom!

What the groom wore

The groom's green sherwani was from AFB favourite Ziggi Menswear and as much as I'd like to have said I had a hand in choosing this sherwani, I really didn't! The choice was down to the groom and of course the advice and styling from Ziggi and Taff.

The photo above is from some casual posing for photographers HS Photography before making our entrance to the wedding - we defied the convention of "asian timing" and arrived early in Nottingham after travelling from Manchester (thanks to Swans Travel and our lovely coach driver), meaning the bride's side weren't quite ready for us!

For the main event, the groom finished off his look with a matching green hat (also from Ziggi). Here's a pic of the full look:

What the children wore

We had three young children in the wedding party, my beautiful niece, age 6 and my two nephews aged 2 and 3.

For my niece and youngest nephew, we paid a visit to Rang 48 in Blackburn who stock Rajas and Ranis childrenswear. My niece is lucky enough to have a few dresses and lenghas from there already (see what she wore to the mehndi here). We chose this pretty black, gold and pink dress:

She was really comfortable in the dress and loved wearing it!

This is what we chose for my nephew:

We could have put the boys in matching outfits, but we've never really been into dressing the kids, or ourselves in identical outfits. My other sister headed to Bradford to shop for her little boy and husband. You can see my nephew in the groom's outfit pic above, but here's a closer look at his outfit from Bombay Stores (and another view of my outfit):

What my sister and brother-in-law wore

I love love loved my sister's outfit and styling! I couldn't stop looking at her. She bought her outfit in Pakistan, a full length nude coloured gown with long sleeves and quite full embroidery on the front. She kept her jewellery simple, with a small gold necklace, gold bracelets and the tikka from her wedding set.

Her hair and make-up was by Huda Ahmed and I loved the centre parting with her hair half open and the soft pink lips. It was such a contrast to my look - I told you we don't do matching!

For her husband, they picked out a black patterned sherwani from Ranis Bradford. My mum made up the pocket square to match my nephew's outfit:

A huge thanks to Nicola M for taking these fab photos, and to HS Photography for the first two photos of the groom.

In my next post I'll be sharing with you details from the Walima, here's a sneak peek of my look!
