Maz Events builds set for Suit Tera Laal Rang Da - Song - Yamla Pagla Deewana 2

Maz Events builds set for Suit Tera Laal Rang Da - Song - Yamla Pagla Deewana 2

It’s been the month that the Maz of Leicester Events team has been waiting on – the launch of the new Bollywood blockbuster Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 shows the fabulous d├ęcor and styling completed by the team. It was one of the most challenging 24hour projects, working in wind speeds of upto 40-50mph, rain and pitch darkness at Scalford Hall in Leicestershire. The results – well you can see for yourself on this youtube clip of the song:

The full set was over 20 marquees, all individually themed and dressed in an outdoor wedding theme. A wedding stage using our peacock mandap off set with drapes and crystal. It was glamorous already – but when you add sunny deol, bobby deol, dharmendraji, Neha Sharma and Kristina Akheeva – the set was even more spectacular. We would love to know what you think of the film and particularly the set we created.

New landmark for Leicester

Judges given the task of choosing a new landmark for Leicester have been offering their ideas of what it could be. A £70,000 monument is to be constructed in Rushey Mead, Leicester, outside a Sainsbury’s store which is being built there.

The aim is for the artwork – which will be paid for by the supermarket chain – to rival the Angel of the North. The panel of judges is appealing for the public and schools to come up with ideas to be considered for the site.

But yesterday, they were challenged to come up with their own ideas of what would look good on the site of the former GE Lighting bulb factory in Melton Road.

Judge Karen Hammond, who is the head teacher at nearby Mellor Primary School and an artist, said: “If it was up to me, I’d like to have a selection of wooden statues of people. “It would be like a family of ducks following the mother duck, but they would represent the different people who make Leicester what it is.”

Belgrave photographer Maz Mashru, who has won multiple Kodak Gold Awards in his career, said: “It has to be something artistic and I’d like it to be something to do with the old GE Lighting site. “So many lightbulbs were produced here it could maybe have a bulb in the design.”

Local councillor Piara Singh Clair was also keen for the landmark to incorporate the many years of bulb manufacturing on the site. “I’d like there to be a glowing
bulb on top,”he said. “The most important thing is that it’s something for the people of this area and it has to be about the legacy of the site.”

Judge Dharmesh Lakhani
, who chairs Belgrave Business Association, was keen for the nearby Golden Mile to be a feature of the artwork. He said: “It’s at one end of the Golden Mile and I’d like it to be a gateway to that in some way. “It has to be big and bright and celebrate the area. “Leicester has people from all over the world, so maybe we could have a big globe like the one outside Universal Studios in Hollywood.”

Elly Cutkelvin, Leicester City Council
member for Freemen ward, said: “I’d like something that represents not only the historic nature of the city – which we’ve all been talking about with Richard III being discovered here – but also multi-culturalism. “It should showhow proud we nare of the different elements that make up Leicester.”

The panel of judges will be chaired by Leicester East MP Keith Vaz, who said: “I have absolutely no preconceptions, although on a day like today it would be quite handy to have a giant umbrella. “Whatever it is, it needs to be eye-catching. This is an iconic site. ”

The other judges will be Leicester Mercury editor Richard Bettsworth and Sainsbury’s chief executive Justin King.

The consultation will close on June 30. To have your idea considered by the judging panel, send an e-mail to:

The theme for the Asiana catwalk 2013 designed by Maz of Leicester

The theme for the Asiana catwalk 2013 designed by Maz of Leicester 


A challenge awaits each year for the Maz Events team to create and design a spectacular Asiana Bridal show Catwalk. This year was no exception – what is the 2013 wedding theme and how do we make the most gorgeous bridal wear that Asian Fashion Designers from the UK and abroad create stand out on stage? In 2013, the idea on the catwalk was glamorous and shabby chic – whilst it sounds like an oxymoron, it works when we talk about it in reference to Asian Wedding Decorations, because Asian wedding decorations always have to be glamorous! Asian Wedding and Venue theming has moved on leaps and bounds – we know because we’ve been in a Asian Wedding Decorator for over 20 years! So no longer do we see old hat silky drapes and swags from the 90’s – because so much more is out there to choose from.

So what did glamorous shabby chic mean? Take a look for yourself at the catwalk we created and make your own mind up as to what you think it means! It’s loose, cool and really Indian wedding! We would love feedback from those people who actually watched the catwalk – we loved it – but did you?
And what about backstage? The Asiana Team ran the catwalk this year and wow did they do a great job – WE LOVED IT! It looked slick, flowed beautifully from the outside but internally - the logistics and operations ran like the best, super powered engine – Ferrari – nah meet the F1 Asiana team - Credit to Anisha Vasani , Puja Majithia, Sarwar Ahmed, Ashok Dhawan and the rest of the Asiana team for the most incredibly run catwalk that we know for sure!



Indian Wedding Photography has moved leaps and bounds over the years – we should know – we’ve been around for over 50 years and have seen every era. Our style is classical, beautiful mixing contemporary and natural and our brides tell us no-one does it better! Maz, Rekha and Hardik bring some stunning images from weddings in 2012 for our readers to see. We are fast approaching our 51st birthday and we have even more amazing Asian Wedding Photography to present to our brides and grooms this year.

Every year, we shake things up and bring in new styles and products for wedding Photography. This year, we have  some really exciting ideas for pre-wedding portraits, civil wedding photography and indian wedding photography. In addition we have some stunning ranges of albums that people have absolutely loved and because we know that everyone these days are on a budget, we have packages that will suit most pockets. Why not call us to book a consultation and discuss how we can create the most amazing memory of your lives and make you look and feel like a million dollars. Please do call us quickly, as UK’s top wedding and portrait photographer, Maz and his team have very few dates available!
