Looking for a joy-filled celebration that your future self will look back on with all the warm, fuzzy feelings because it was completely and wonderfully you? You're in the right place. Hello, I'm Aliya (she/her) and I'm so happy you're here! I create and officiate warm, fun, and authentic ceremonies that honour everything that makes you you. I’m dedicated to making my business truly inclusive to folk of all genders and orientations, disabled folk and those with physical and mental health conditions, folk of ethnicities and ages, and folk of all faiths and none. It would be my privilege to celebrate you. Each of us is far more beautifully complex than any label could begin to describe. I delight in creating ceremonies that tell your unique story, share your passions and purpose, and embody your beliefs and values. Bespoke symbolic elements and storytelling are my specialties, all joyfully crafted with you at their core. Whether it's showcasing what you love or honouring culture and traditions, I've got you covered. I make everyone feel truly involved and immersed in your ceremony, which will be happily remembered for years to come!


Q: What makes you an alternative wedding supplier?

A: I suppose this depends on how you define the word 'alternative'! My teenage years were spent immersed in Paramore, Biffy Clyro and The Dresden Dolls and stomping about in tartan-lined Doc Martens, and much of that hasn't changed into adulthood, but for me the word alternative means someone different, and I think I embody that in my business now with a focus on the fact that everyone is unique and no one is a stereotype - why have a ceremony that is a carbon copy of anyone else's when there's no one else like you and nothing else that is identical to your love?


Q: Best live concert you've ever attended?

A: Oh my gosh, I can't pick one. Can I have a top 3? It's got to be Amanda Palmer live at the ICA in 2008, Orchestral Qawalli live at the Southbank Centre in 2022, and Lady Maisery live at South Street this year.


Side note, being alternative to me, means being comfortable being yourself - that's something I'm always working on as a recovering people pleaser - I didn't always see myself represented in typically 'alternative' spaces, particularly in relation to my culture and ethnicity, which I felt I had to hide or deny a lot growing up. It's awesome seeing fusion bands like Bloodywood showing up now (if you haven't heard of them, think South Asian Linkin Park) and TV shows like Lady Parts today. That makes my inner teenage Aliya very happy.


Q: If you could eat 1 meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

A: Super biased but nothing beats my mum's cooking. And anyone who doesn't say curry is wrong (sorry not sorry). A whole banquet of the best Indian food you'll ever eat. I'm talking curries, rice, samosas, these spiced potato ball things called bateta vada, masala chips, chutneys, samosas... I could eat all that every day forever and ever.
