Sneak Peek: Nidhi & Eric

Wow, what a wedding! What an experience!

Sunday Ceremony Nidhi and Eric

I definitely need some time to collate the full post about Nidhi and Eric’s wedding – and serious consultation with the bride and groom to make sure I get everything right! The Rajasthan wedding, held at Neemrama Fort Palace was certainly one to remember. Not only were the weekend festivities memorable and fun, with the bride and groom donning two extravagant outfits to gawk at, but the merging of both Nidhi and Eric’s worlds was seamless. Friends and family all got along famously, with new friendships formed over the days at the Fort.

A selection of two highlights before I leave you with a few photos

  • Spending time with Nidhi! Getting to spend some valuable time with Nids before, during and after the wedding festivities was so special to me. Destination weddings really give you a lot more opportunity to spend time with the couple, as everyone is in the one place. But both Nidhi and Eric really made so much effort to spend time with us, and make everyone a part of the experience. Spending time with Nidhi both mornings of her wedding events was precious, and I feel so honoured to have been a part of it with her.
  • New friends! Not only did I get to finally meet Eric, Nidhi’s beau (who is wonderful by the way!), but Les and I got to make some new special friends. You truly enjoy experiences when you like the people you’re with, and having some of Nidhi and Eric’s dearest friends in one place meant that we really got to know a few people quite well.

I”m saving all the beautiful wedding ceremonies and rituals for the main post, but here’s a few sneak peek photos to tide you over! Those who already follow me on Instagram will already have had a bit of eye candy! Read the rest of this entry

Kristina & Josh: 25 November 2011, Hawaii

josh and kristina hawaii destination wedding

Our favourite destination wedding of 2011, our beautiful friends Kristina and Josh were married on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. Turtle Bay Resort was the perfect setting for their nuptials.

Truly a fairytale story, Josh and Kristina met by chance on St Patricks Day while Kristina was backpacking around Australia, and Josh was on business in Sydney. A story that you would only believe hearing it first hand from the couple themselves, it was complete fate that brought those two together. A leap of faith by Kristina in moving to Australia, here they are now, married 4 years later. (See Kristina & Josh’s story at the end of this post)

Planning a destination wedding can’t have been easy, but Kristina pulled it off without a hitch! I thought that I would ask Kristina to share a few pieces of wisdom around destination wedding planning. Read the rest of this entry
