How about this for a great way to celebrate your cultural heritage as you celebrate your marriage? When Peni married Steph, he came dressed in his Fijian finery.
This was a stylish wedding – in every sense. Peni and Stephanie pulled out all the stops for their ceremony to make it very personal and very memorable. Both looked amazing – Stephanie wore the most beautiful and elegant lace bridal gown, and Peni wore a traditional Fijian outfit (he changed later on into an electric blue suit which was equally as cool!).
What I really liked about their ceremony was their choice of words and how we brought it all together. It was full of love. Peni wrote a poem expressing his love for Steph, which was read by his mum. Their vows to each other were carefully chosen and came from the heart. And Steph’s sister Rebecca rounded it all off with a great reading with some words of wisdom about marriage.
As I was conducting the ceremony, they stood facing each other holding hands – and they couldn’t take their eyes off each other. They were totally in the moment, which is just as it should be. I really enjoyed conducting their wedding because there was such a happy, relaxed vibe to it.
Peni told me he was really excited about starting married life. He said “Everything we do, although it’ll be normal, it’ll be extra special because we’re doing it as a married couple!” And Steph said, “This is also just the start of something. We’ll always keep growing as a couple and there’ll always be new experiences to have together.”
Congratulations you two – enjoy the honeymoon!
Peni and Stephanie were married at Oatlands House, Oatlands.
