Our 2016 couldn't start in a better way!! A wedding in Fiji with an extraordinary couple from a big greek comunity in Wellington (New Zealand) was a great experience!
January is not the best season for having a wedding there, so much wet and hot, but this was a very special wedding for us.
In particular for me (Laura) was a special one because i'm half greek and spending all my holiday in Greece when i was child, i can feel it closer to me.
The culture, the traditions and a lot of details where for me like "home".
Alexia and Peter told us from the beginning they would like to have a greek-orthodox ceremony and they had it in a small and total white church in Lautoka.
While a very hot summer wind was blowing and fijian children playing with dogs outside, they had typical religious ceremony, with the exanging of the rings and the crowning, as a greek wedding
Than they had the reception, after bridal party shoots, at the Flying Fish restaurant at the Sheraton Hotel . The location is awesome, imperial tables on the beach, surrounded by white flowers everywhere, a lot of them were hanging down from the ceiling. Very fijian style!!
And as all the greek weddings they had a great party on the beach with greek music and a lot of dances. (Of course thay couldn't miss the tradition of break the dishes during the typical dance, as a big wish for the new family).
But now let's see how magic and romantic was this wedding!
Thank you very much Alexia and Peter for gave us this fantastic opportunity of be there and share with us your beautiful day!
