???? Congratulations Mr & Mrs Pirrit! ????

It is with great pleasure I share this photo with you! 

My gorgeous friends Teresa and Mark tied the knot on Waiheke Island this weekend in a ceremony true to their personalities and style. 

Our Groom waited (with a good dose of nerves) for his beautiful Bride, chauffeured in their cool American muscle car, who looked absolutely stunning like a fairytale princess! 

It was even more exciting than usual officiating for friends and I was very happy to be part of their big day.

Famous Love Stories ♥ Orpheus and Eurydice

Orpheus and Eurydice story is an ancient greek tale of desperate love. Orpheus fell deeply in love with and married Eurydice, a beautiful nymph. They were very much in love and very happy together. Aristaeus, a Greek god of the land and agriculture, became quite fond of Eurydice and actively pursued her. While fleeing from Aristaeus Eurydice ran into a nest of snakes which bit her fatally on her legs. Distraught, Orpheus played such sad songs and sang so mournfully that all the nymphs and gods wept. On their advice, Orpheus traveled to the underworld and by his music softened the hearts of Hades and Persephone who agreed to allow Eurydice to return with him to earth on one condition: he should walk in front of her and not look back until they both had reached the upper world. In his anxiety he forgot that both needed to be in the upper world and he turned to look at her, and she vanished for the second time – forever.

We all know that most celebrity marriages do not last, but we can be sure of one thing: stunning bridal gowns. And Elizabeth Taylor would have had quite a few! Here’s one of them…

The Hollywood darling was known for her many marriages but we will always remember her first with Conrad Nicky Hilton in 1950. Her satin gown was made with a romantic lace top and a beautiful sweeping skirt that looked divine on the then-18-year-old Elizabeth. The gown cost $1,500 which at that time was considered quite expensive.

♥ Arranged Marriages ♥

 

I didn’t see this tv show the first time around, but it’s repeated on a Sunday at the moment. I think the idea of an arranged marriage is both strange to me as a Western raised person and also sensible… providing both families make a good choice for the Bride and Groom… and they have had the chance to meet in person and have a final say!
Most of all though I am amazed at all the incredible colourful fashion loaded with bling.

Imagine the most disgusting things in the world. You got it? Now imagine all of your friends throwing those things at you, covering you in grossness, and then tying you to a tree. This is the typical pre-marital humiliation that Scottish brides endure in certain parts of the country. Supposedly if you can handle this you can handle anything, including marriage.

Gwen is known for her unique style. You can picture her wearing something bright and wild during her wedding but when she tied the knot the second time around with husband Gavin Rossdale. At the wedding, Gwen surprised people with her breathtaking white and pink gown. She wore a custom ombre John Galliano for Dior dress which looks so elegant and charming you can say it is a gown fit for a princess.

This episode of Friends was nailbiting at the time – especially if you always wanted Rachel and Ross to live happily ever after!

In Ireland when the bride and groom are dancing the bride’s feet have to stay on the floor. The Irish believe that if they don’t, evil fairies will come and sweep her away. The logic? Evil fairies like beautiful things. The bride is beautiful. The fairies can only get to her if she is not touching the ground.
