Madly in love: Shayal and Gehan’s traditional garden wedding


With just over a 10-year age gap, Gehan and Shayal never imagined their relationship would get serious.

But after keeping it casual for a few months, the pair couldn’t deny the attraction.

“We fell madly in love and still are,” Shayal says.

When it came to planning their traditional garden wedding, the venue was the first priority. The couple chose Adelaide’s Veale Gardens for their November 18, 2018 celebrations.

The celebrations continued at Sferas Park Suites and Convention Centre.

“We did not have a theme, we just went with what we liked the most,” Shayal says.

This included a one-of-a-kind first dance the couple practiced for eight months.

“Every small detail fell in to place,” the bride says of the day.

“We couldn’t ask for more, just simply perfect – we still get goosebumps thinking about our day and we can’t get enough of showing our first dance to everyone again and again!”
