Wow, what a wedding! What an experience!
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
Love is certainly in the air this April! Two of my darling friends have just gotten engaged!
Congratulations to the beautiful Melissa and Rezwan who got engaged in Egypt of all places, while travelling with Melissa’s family. What a way to propose, I’m sure it will be a memorable one for the family! 😉
And to my amazingly talented colleague, and most wonderful friend, Kara! Too cute that Craig couldn’t wait until their planned holiday to ask KJ to marry him. What a romantic, setting up a table on the beach with balloons and french champagne…Congrats you guys!
Since I haven’t seen any inspirational photography this week, and I haven’t featured one of my best friend’s weddings yet…Today’s Wednesday post goes to the lovely Kelly O’Connell, and her hubby Steven Schmidt. Affectionately known as “The O’Schmidt’s”.
Unfortunately, this gal didn’t get to attend their wedding, one trip too many back to the USA for the year of 2011 sadly!
Kelly moved out to Australia from the USA, with her fiance Steven. That’s a pretty big move for a girl at the height of her career! I’m damn happy she moved here! Kelly has become one of my best friends, and we have had some amazing times. She is one of the toughest, positive, awe-inspiring people I know, and I love her to bits. So, here’s a showcase of her wedding photos by the super talented Wheelhouse Weddings. Not to mention their incredibly fun, and very them, wedding dance!
I’m a week late on writing this post, but I had to do a shout out to my gorgeous friend Meredith and her new fiance Campbell! The moment I got a text from Mez at 2am last Monday morning, I knew what the news was without even reading the message. Read the rest of this entry
