- Wedding: July 2013
At this point i was in my little room in the temple, nervous as hell. My stomach was quesy. I could hear the music playing (My cousin is a professional DJ) and i could tell what part of the welcoming ceremony they were up to. Then there was knock on my door, it was my brother ready to walk me down the isle. (It is tradition for your brothers to walk you down the isle). I gripped his hand and tears flooded from my eyes. I could hear my music playing and the shuffle of people standing up. My neice, my flower girl, walked infront of me.
My neice carried our flower garlands. The person who was to make my garlands did a horrendous job and they were unusable. My sisters bestfriend had to steal flowers from peoples gardens and make the garlands 2 hours before the ceremony.
Me walking down the isle with my brother, 220 guests were looking on.
Then it was time for the wedding rituals, i would love to post photos of every ritual but there are just way too many. My groom and i put flower garlands on each other, we walked around a fire 7 times to symbolise us finding eachother in all of our 7 lives.
This is what it looked like inside the wedding structure.
This is our wedding structure. It was made of fake flowers underneath with fresh flowers on top. My florist did an amazing job! It was breathtaking. My groom and i are inside, midway through the ceremony.
The ceremony was about 45 minutes in total. Directly behind my venue is an international runway, this was intentional as my husband is an airline pilot. During the ceremony, my husband kept quoting the aircraft names based on the noised. 45 minutes is a long ceremony time so i think our guests were grateful to have somethint to look at. We also had kids tables with playdough to keep the kids occupied.
Now it’s time to talk about the food, lets go onto part 4…
