In the Jungle, the mighty jungle…. 

Wimoweh! Wimoweh! 

In the jungle, the mighty jungle

The lions sleep tonight!

This is one of those songs that once you start singing, you just cannot stop – it plays on repeat in your mind till you HAVE to listen to something else just to get the tune outta your head! Today though, I am just going to let it play on repeat because there couldn’t be a more apt song! It’s holiday time for half of the Unreal Bride team and that half is going to AFRICA!!!!! Whheeeee!! In all my excitement, I attempted to make an inspiration board of sorts – at least I tried, right? So even if it isn’t the most mind-blowing inspiration board you have ever seen, it might just inspire you an eency weency bit!

Photos- 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5

I am going to leave you with this for now, but when I am back- I will make you one with some real photos that I have taken. Don’t fret though- we will have our regular posts and maybe some irregular ones too! We wouldn’t want to leave our readers high and dry because we are just thoughtful like that! 🙂

Couldn’t think of a better way to start the week! Have a happy one!!

Thursday Thoughts: Colourless Cakes

Do you know how many kinds of cakes are out there? There are single tiered cakes, triple tiered cakes, cupCAKES, cake dresses, cakes of all shapes and sizes to choose from! I should’ve been eating some cake while writing this post because only I know how much I need some right now!!! You will too at the end of this post.

After perusing the internet for hours mainly Pinterest – which has become like Google to me- what did we do without it, I wonder? Like I was saying, after spending a few hours too many on Pinterest and then going on an internet hunt, I decided let’s focus on white cakes. They fascinate me- these white cakes. So minimalistic yet definitely the most beautiful of all the cakes I have seen. Even the ones with a dash of colour are amazing!

This cake tops my list of favourites- how do they do it? How do they make them so perfect? Problem is, I don’t think I could eat this cake! I would want to just sit and stare at it.

Maybe the entire post should’ve been about the Sweet and Saucy shop! Their cakes are amazing as you can see!

{ Real Wedding } N&A Part I

You might think this is a picture of jalebis – those yummy sugary deep fried treats that taste so perfect with a cup of tea or on a rainy day. But I am going to allow my imagination to run wild. To me it is some ancient script which all the priests read from in their sing song nasal voices . It could very well be that because I never ever got a word of what those priests are saying anyway! But, that’s just me and yes, those ARE jalebis. I would eat them all the time if they weren’t so sweet and oily and uhmm, dare I say it, unhealthy! The only time I would sneak one would be at a wedding which is exactly where I took this picture.

This wedding should’ve been posted a few months ago but since my favourite thing to do is to not do, it has taken me 4 months to post it. To be honest, I didn’t know where to start with this wedding, the decor, the clothes, the bride or the ceremony?! That’s the thing with Indian weddings- they are so intricate and carry on for a couple of days so you come away with so many photographs and I want to share them all but that isn’t possible, right?

After mulling over it,I finally decided I will show you some of the decor – and tease you before I show you the bride and groom! There were two days of celebration and they took place in the bride’s gorgeous farm house

 

The mehendi ceremony happened under a beautiful canopy decorated by pink and green cloth , strings of flowers and kaleeras hanging off the roof like little chandeliers!

Fuchsia pink and bright green(I am not great with colour names so if I have got them wrong-go ahead and correct me!) were the colours of the day and right from the tent to the chairs to the cushions were all draped in these colours. Though these are super bright colours and you could go quite wrong with them, they were in just right the doses and on that bright wintery morning, nothing would’ve looked better! I loved how they used the marigold flowers – very unusual and it was the first time I have seen them being used like this.

Can you spot the bride getting her mehendi done? She moved to the main tent area to be closer to the rest of the party.
