Posted by Kellie | 9 December, 2015

Danielle and Bashir Abou Chahla have probably broken a record including 17 nieces and nephews on their wedding day.

“We had the babies pushed in carriages down the aisle of the church, which I thought was cute,” explains 28-year-old Danielle. “I really wanted all the kids to be involved in our wedding. They mean a lot to Bashir and also me.”

After eight years together the Sydney couple married at St Joseph’s College – Bashir’s former school – in Hunters Hill. A reception followed with 300 guests at Clarence House Function Centre in Belmore. “I am from New Zealand and Bashir [32] is Lebanese so we had a multi-cultural wedding which included the Haka and also Lebanese drummers at the reception,” explains Danielle.

The bride also credited her late mum for the excellent winter weather. “It had been raining and cold and I was very worried about the weather on the day for us,” says Danielle. “But I had my guardian angel mum looking over me – she made the sun shine.”

Danielle’s bridesmaids also get a special mention for putting up with her “bridezilla moments” in the lead up to the day. “They were always there for me emotionally and always there to help me,” smiles the bride.
