We love when couples combine their traditions and heritage into their wedding. For Sydney based couple, Shilpa and Shakti, it was important to them and their families to have a mixed Marathi and Telugu wedding ceremony and it was certainly lovely to see. They tied the knot in Auckland, New Zealand at the BAPS Swaminarayan mandir followed by a beautiful reception at a private venue with sweeping views of the bay. They even had sheep present at their wedding!
We love featuring multicultural weddings on our blog. Today’s wedding is truly one for the ages though.
