Does it need to have a theme? You and your fiance are Indian and English and you don’t clash with each other, so why would having Indian elements in an English venue clash?

Just go with colors you like and incorporate bits and pieces of your culture (I.e. caketoppers, favors, programs, traditional desserts, jewelry, etc). You don’t need a theme, just pick things that you like or are meaningful to you. If it’s not “over the top in your face” then it won’t clash with the room.

OrchidsandCandles:  I think that sounds great! What if you stick to mostly the gold and white with just a few pops of the bright colors? Maybe use some old gold colored books as a base for your centerpieces (Like stack 2 or 3 and put the centerpiece on top).

OrchidsandCandles:  just saw your post. Love that color scheme! (I had orange pink and green haha!). I think it would work great.

I am not sure where in the uk you are, but a lot of old estates were decorated with Indian furniture and statues during the early Victorian period/the reign of George IV and his regency. The Pavilion in Brighton is an example of a mixture of some Indian stuff and a lot of “chinoiserie” – a mix between what English people thought Chinese decoration was like and what English people thought Indian decoration was like. There were a lot of bright colours in cushions and soft furnishings, so don’t feel afraid to bring in bright pops of colour!

OrchidsandCandles:  Another idea would be to use lanterns like this along with your brass statues.
