Emily Brooks married professional footballer Kashif Siddiqi on 9th September 2016. He says: “Emily and I met properly in Paris, I was there for football and she for a college trip. But I’d seen her at home in England around her college campus and had been racking my brain for a way to catch her eye. I came up with a plan, which turned into a seven month pursuit to win her heart. Luckily, it paid off! I knew she was The One, and my thoughts turned to planning the perfect proposal. I whisked Emily to Morocco and organised an intimate rooftop dinner – with the ring hidden in a tagine! I asked, she cried and said yes. I’ve never felt happier."



THE ENGLISH WEDDING
Emily says: “For my registry, I wore the a white lace wedding gown from Shakespeare in Love. Afterwards, we had a relaxed BBQ polished off with Cre`me Glace´e desserts. We also had Photo booth Star there to capture the party.”



THE DETAILS
CAKE
“I made my own cakes for the Walima, the ceremony and the Mehndi. My family thought I’d gone mad as I already had plenty to do, but I wanted to keep it personal.”
VENUE
“We held the Walima at The Grange Hotel in St. Paul’s, London. It was the grand finale which saw friends come from all over to join the celebrations.”
SPECIAL GUESTS
Kash says: “We count ourselves lucky that so many peeple came top celebrate our day. We had guests from from USA, Monaco, India, Australia, Tasmania, Pakistan and the UAE. We were also honoured to also be joined by friends from Royal backgrounds, government delegates and well-known faces from the world of sport.”

Ball games: World Record Holder and Champion Freestyler - Abbas Farid

FIRST DANCE
“The first dance song was Usher’s Nice and Slow. Its one of ‘our’ songs, so we had to have it as our first dance.”
THE BRIDE
“Anisha Vasani styled my bridalwear, while MUA Roshni did hair and makeup. Pavan Ahluwalia did my mehndi - she has a Guinness World Record for doing 511 henna armbands in an hour!”
THE GROOM
“We went with a Rajasthani theme from Styled by Saran Kohli Khubsoorat Collection.”

Kash says: “When it came to thinking about the de´cor and production, Emily worked closely with Andy Williams from Phoenix Events and Shila from Kudos AV to come up with a fusion theme all our guests would love. The pictures don’t tell the true story of our venue – people said it literally took their breath away. The team was amazing.”
