Natasha and Nate celebrate two ceremonies for classic wedding

Wedding: 02/04 and 09/04 2016

Posted by Anna | 13 February, 2017

Incorporating two religions into a wedding is no easy feat. But for Natasha and Nathan, it was a chance to create something uniquely them.

“Nate is a Catholic and I am a Hindu, so we decided to have two ceremonies and one big reception,” explains bride Natasha. The pair, aged 27 and 26 respectively, held their ceremonies on April 2 and April 9, 2016. “On the day of the Hindu ceremony I was nervous and excited … it was so much fun and everything I had wanted it to be,” explains Natasha.

The Catholic wedding, and reception at San Remo Ballroom was “picture perfect,” according to the bride, with good weather and loved ones in attendance to end the two-week celebration! “The best part was having family from the US, Canada, New Zealand, India, Fiji and interstate attend,” smiles Natasha.

The couple worked hard to personalise their classic wedding with DIY items including a Mr and Mrs sign for their seating, use of their parents’ wedding photos and custom-engraved signature books for the guests to sign. “Focus on the details because that is what makes all the difference,” Natasha says in her advice for brides-to-be.
