Nishaanie Hariram and her soulmate Rowen Moodley made their commitment official before God surrounded by their friends, family and angels who guide them from above on 19 November 2017.
An intimate traditional South Indian wedding was held in Gauteng at the Midrand Conference Center, the exterior venue proved to be beautiful at this time of year and the flowers were in full bloom with a water feature as a background for the nuptials.
Thereafter, the inside halls was an used for our reception with the outside sporting a cooling off area.
Being treated like a queen by everyone around us and having our daughter enter our reception bringing in a whirlwind of emotions! Our first dance that started with my brother as my dad is late and he later handed me off to my husband.
On this day I married who God created for me, Mr Rowen Moodley… in front of our guests we pledged that no matter what the storm may bring, we will weather it together as one! My groom looked absolutely dashing and was kitted in suit attire from Hugo Boss and shoes by Kurt Geiger.

My wedding outfit was traditional Indian attire that was brought in from India together with my shoes and accessories. All courtesy of my very good friends, Wesley and Joe of Bridal Factor!
Our wedding rings were made by Elegenza Jewelry. Make up was done by Arvadhi and my hair was done by the Golden Scissor salon, all of whom came to me.
The weekend before I found myself with a few family members at the Maslow, going to the Africology Spa, got myself a full body experience, mani and pedi. The Thursday that followed was my hair trial where I colored and shaped my hair courtesy of the Golden Scissor salon which also did my nails & waxing. Friday was my henna day where a lady from India who did an absolute stunning job. The Saturday morning was an early one where we had our cleansing ceremony at home and at night we hired the club house at a friends place where we continued rituals with friends and family and also spent dancing the night away.
Our decor and catering for the entire week was done by Shalen of Natsons Decor who went the extra mile for us. Flower arrangements for all days were done by Pedro of Flower Market based at Mall of Reds who created exactly what I wanted
The wedding menu was prepared and served by the venue with our cake and thank you memento’s done by Misa’s Cakes. The wedding stationery was handled by a colleague who prepared all written material with invites sourced from India.
Photography by Sonile and his crew from Gray Card Production were a fabulous team that captured every special moment to detail!
The only disappointment that the wedding couple experienced was being let down by the MC Karou Charou who didn not pitch for their special day after being booked and paid for.
