Guyanese Indian Wedding by Photography in Style - 1

Hi readers! Today’s wedding, submitted by the talented Photography In Style, is a wedding that spans across multiple cultures and customs. The couple, Ikhwan and Alicia, were both born in America but share Guyanese backgrounds. Guyana, although located in South America, has a strong Indian influence and because of this it was very important for Ikhwan and Alicia to include aspects from their Muslim heritage, Indian roots, and American home into their wedding day.

Ikhwan and Alicia’s wedding celebration kicked off at The Sterling where 600 guests gathered for a Nikkah ceremony and banquet. Alicia was stunning in a red and white lengha paired with kundan jewelry and churra galore.  Ikhwan shares some meaning behind his and Alicia’s Nikkah ceremony:

“Our ceremony was less than an hour. I gave her the offer of marriage and she accepted the offer of marriage. I gave her a marriage gift and we said vows to eachother. Following the Nikkah was a 5 hour banquet which is a formal religious party where no music is played.”






Stay tuned for Ikhwan and Alicia’s portrait session where the groom shares how he proposed to his bride!
