We do love a good party, which is why we were thrilled when super-gorgeous Lillie and Zyen brought Bollywood vibes to The Normans, by the bucketload!

By day, the lovely Lillie wore a bespoke silk dress, created by Liliana Dabic at La Novia Bridal in Edinburgh (the city where Lillie and Zyen met), while bridesmaids wore soft peppermint gowns from JJsHouse

In the Ceremony Barn two tall showpieces marked the spot where Lillie and Zyen would say 'I do'...

Over in the Cow Stalls, glass baubles were filled with striking flower heads, and the mangers were chock-full of candy-coloured pom poms...

Pom poms made their way into The Normans Marquee, too - with yet more of the colourful cuties prettifying our rustic backdrops.

Tabletops were lavished with glowing tea-lights and delicate gold jars - each of which were hand painted by Lillie herself.

East meets West cuisine at The Normans Photo by

Even the couple's cuisine - created by Friends4Dinner - was awash with colour and influences from both East and West.

But that's not all! By day, guests soaked up live music in The Normans Courtyard, in the form of the traditional Pakistani bansuri (flute) and tabla (drum).

As evening drew in, bride Lillie changed into a beautiful bespoke ensemble by Samsara Couture House, based in Lahore, Pakistan.

Once the remaining guests took their seats around the dance floor, the girls made their way into the marquee holding mehndi plates and tealights to cue the evening's entertainment!

The group - following the lead of Lillie and Zyen - treated everyone to a dance showcase, performed to a soundtrack of the bride and groom's favourite Bollywood hits. 

Party time at The Normans Photo by

Oh what a night! Our heartfelt congrats to the wonderful Lillie and Zyen, aka Mr and Mrs Ubeid. 

We could not have imagined a more magical setting than The Normans for our wedding: every single space, from the Courtyard to the Marquee, had something unique about it, meaning that we were able to continually surprise guests with new settings and decor throughout the day. It really was the best day of our lives!
