A very warm welcome to our very first wedding on Global Love World!
I feel so honoured to be able to feature this incredibly beautiful wedding. When I first started travelling through the world wide web for a wedding which took place in Uzbekistan, I have to admit it wasn’t the easiest. I then finally found New York based Lux Photo Studios and I couldn’t quite believe my luck. Not only is the bride a natural beauty, it’s a stunning wedding and beautifully captured… I had the opportunity in understanding some of their wedding traditions, as well as being able to soak in the traditional elements of a wedding which took place in Uzbekistan.
A day full of glamour, colour and grace.
I knew very little about Uzbekistan as a country but through my book of ‘A Journey Through Every Country In The World’, the team at Lonely Planet share the following -
‘Sharing borders with all five of the ‘Stans, Uzbekistan lies at the heart of Central Asia… Uzbekistan boasts a proud artistic history and diverse culture, exemplified by the most magnificent cities in Central Asia’
So please come and join me in today’s Global Love in Uzbekistan…
The Miami based bride had approached Lux Photo Studios to capture her wedding in Uzbekistan. After many months of planning, they flew over to Tashkent for this very incredible day. Bride and groom began their preparations in the Radisson Blu Hotel Tashkent, followed by their whole wedding day within this venue; a hotel with western standards yet filled with local touches, such as Central Asian motifs, colours and material.
The traditional Uzbek fanfares began once all the guests had been seated. The groom, whose family originate from Belarus, made his entrance into the ballroom and towards centre stage. As the sound of the fanfares began to silent, the lighting and attention had switched from the groom to the bride.
The bride, groom and both sides of their families exchanged hugs and kisses as their guests cheered and the gorgeous newlyweds began their first dance as husband and wife.
With weddings in Uzbekistan, it is tradition where performers entertain guests and this wedding was no different. Lux Photo Studios tells me they hired a dozen of different acts such as singers, dancers and musicians… all dressed in magnificent costume.
Traditional Uzbek wedding food was served throughout their wedding followed by a beautifully designed wedding cake – I cannot help but notice how all the colours from flowers, to entertainers and their wedding cake had all complemented the wedding perfectly.
The bride tossed her bouquet following western traditions – perfectly designed by florist designer Ruben Saakyan; based in Tashkent but travels worldwide for his talented floral designs.
I would like to thank today’s bride and groom and Lux Photo Studios for having me share such a beautiful wedding all the way from Uzbekistan… Congratulations to this beautiful couple and wishing you a lifetime of happiness from myself and the readers from the UK and beyond.
