There’s something extra-special about weddings that bring together two cultures.
Steve is a great Aussie bloke. Lovely Shirley is from Malaysia la. Together they are one seriously adorable couple.
Shirley was determined to stick to tradition as much as possible, but I loved to see the Chinese-Malaysian touches that crept though – thank you gifts for important people in Chinese New Year red packets, LOTS of photos taken by her friends and family at the reception, and a huge emphasis on celebrating with family – not necessarily the people you’re related to, but the people who make life amazing.
They really made me feel like part of the family, which made their wedding particularly special to me, too.
