Two Weddings in One Day! Indian Wedding and Urban Classic Wedding
In a country that embraces and celebrates multiple cultures, it's not a surprise to see multi-cultural couples coming together in matrimony. It's also not a surprise to see couples blending and incorporating their two cultures into their wedding ceremony.
What IS a surprise is when the couple decides to have TWO different weddings on the same day! This lovely Wellington couple pulled it off with amazing style.
"We were fortunate enough to have two weddings on the same day! In the morning we had a Hindu ceremony at the Bharat Bhavan Indian Hall, followed by an amazing Indian lunch. After lots of photos and an outfit change we had our traditional white wedding ceremony at the Rowing Club Function Room. We then moved next door to The Boatshed and partied into the night on Wellington's beautiful waterfront."
The incredibly talented Candy Capco captured every detail of these two events brilliantly.
For the second part of the day, Alison had visited our Wellington salson and had chosen the Bonny 1420 gown which she wowed both the crowd and her new husband with.
"I had spotted Bonny 1420 online and knew it was my dream style of dress but was open to whatever looked good and made me feel amazing. Turns out Bonny 1420 was the perfect dress for me."
My Favourite part of the day was our first look photographs - it was an incredibly busy day with a tight schedule and our photographer suggested we have first look photographs as a moment just for us. The opportunity to focus solely on each other and take in the other person's reactions was really special and we'll never forget it.
