Sofreh Aghd


The Sofreh Aghd is a traditional and elaborate Persian wedding ceremony spread where ceremonial marriage traditions are practiced. The ceremonial traditions have been taken place for thousands of years and the Sofreh Aghd spreads are customary at Persian weddings. Like most, Persians have diverse religious backgrounds and the Sofreh ceremony is practiced regardless of faith.

The Sofreh Aghd consists of many symbolic items, all in which are placed accordingly and represent an element of the couple’s new life together. The word “Sofreh” means “spread” and “Aghd” means “ceremony”. While most couples aim to keep the traditional elements of the Sofreh Design, each spread is designed around the bride & groom’s style and preference.

A team of passionate and extremely talented Toronto wedding professionals worked together to execute a vintage chic sofreh design which reflects on the current trends of the wedding industry. The perfect setting was at The Doctors House in Toronto, and within the team are Event & Sofreh Designers, floral designers, hair and make up artists, photographers, videographers, luxury jewelry and a professional pianist. Thank you Margarita of Oudalova Events & Design for sending us this amazing wedding session captured by the lovely and talented Carla of Photasia Photography.

Check back tomorrow for a behind the scene video of this gorgeous session!
