    Indian Mexican Wedding in London

    From the bride:

    Shajay and I met at the Architectural Association in London where we both studied, he is from India and I am Mexican. Initially we wanted to have two ceremonies one in each country but after getting the costs and seeing the logistics of planning it we decided to settle for a single wedding ceremony in London, which was the place where we met and coincidentally is exactly half way between India and Mexico. I am from a very big family but all of them agreed to come and at the end we had friends flying from over 12 different countries for our wedding.  Read More

They knew they were going to get married, so when Amel’s dad started to pressure her to go back home after finishing her studies, they decided to officially do it. Rob proposed in a zoo near the cage of mooses dresses in a moose costume (he calls Amel moose due to her clumsiness). She thought it was hilarious and very cute. Read More
