Asian Hindu Wedding held at Marriot Grosvenor Square London

Asian Toastmaster at Hindu held at Wedding Marriot Grosvenor Square London

Richard Birtchnell is The Asian Wedding Toastmaster

Privileged as always to participate in a Hindu wedding celebration. At the Marriott Grosvenor Square. Working alongside Veer Events, Mahraj Vaisnava, DJ Krash at Devine Music, harpist Melissa Parmar, photographer Dino Jeram,and videographer Chris Jolly.

Photos include:

  • The happy couple, Amish and Hatal
  • Family group photos after the ceremony
  • If you didn't know it, the swastika was originally an Indian religious icon and still today a sacred symbol in Hinduism. Even the word 'swastika' is Sanskrit for 'prosperity and well being'.
  • Creative arrangement of reception cocktails
  • The game of 'Koda Kodi' played by the couple whereby they search for a ring in opaque coloured liquid and whoever finds it first is deemed to be the 'ruler' of the household. The priest will adjudicate and organise the best of three or five attempts until the bride comes out on top. But of course!
  • The 'Ace of Spades' Champagne may be as expensive as the cake! Pure indulgence. Sheer luxury.
  • The Best Man organises a flash mob to entertain couple
  • Strictly the first dance. Unrepeatable. Then it's a non-stop party to the end after a day of celebration which had begun at 8am

Botleys Mansion was built over 250 years ago, formerly a private residence, then in more recent times, became a hospital. Now an exclusive wedding venue operated by bijou.

Photos include:

  • Groom's family are from Mauritius - and they brought the sunshine with them
  • Personalised place cards for 90 guests. Amazing attention to detail
  • Magician Darren Delaney entertains top table

Chinese Embassy Buyi Seamstresses

Master of Ceremonies at Chinese Embassy with Buyi Seamstresses

The Story of the Buyi of Qian Xinan

To celebrate the 45th anniversary of Ambassadorial Diplomatic Relations between China and the UK I was invited to be a Master of Ceremonies and MC at a presentation at the Chinese Embassy, for a fashion show of beautifully embroidered designs by the talented seamstresses of Qianxinan in the province of Guizhou.

This is the first time that the Buyi seamstresses from Qianxinan have visited London to present their skill and designs, which date back hundreds of years, thanks to the collaboration of entrepreneurs Lady Barbara Judge and Madam Xia Hua of Eve Group in China.

London Wedding Toastmaster at Asian Wedding at Grosvenor House 2015

Asian Wedding Toastmaster

This memory popped up and am happy to share as the perfect wedding in the best wedding venue. It is such a privilege to participate in my clients' special days. Always live, unrehearsed and unrepeatable. Here I acted as Wedding Toastmaster and Master of Ceremonies at an extravagant Asian wedding at Grosvenor House for 750 guests.

Part of the entertainment were Aerialists Nina, Alex and Ziggy otherwise known as 'Eleganza' and magician, Magic Singh.
