Lyndsey & Maka are such a gorgeous couple!
The weather may have been chilly but it was definitely warm and inviting at their wedding.
Their ceremony took place at Farnworth Methodist church in Widnes, which is actually the church I grew up with. I have so many fond memories there & the church is so quaint & so very pretty.
Lyndsey & Maka are the two most chilled people – Mix this in with pronouncing long names, some contagious giggling and lots of loving smiles and you’ve a wedding full of love & fun.
What I loved about this wedding was the mix of two different cultural backgrounds and seeing them come together as one. Maka’s family are Tongan & performed a beautiful traditional hymn as part of the ceremony, which sounded beautiful.
The reception was all about the celebration. I’ve never been lucky enough to be part of other cultural traditions before, so getting to witness the family perform Tongan & Hawaiian dances at the reception was something i’ll never forget. It was actually really moving & emotional to watch it all & I feel so lucky to have been there.
Thank you to Mr & Mrs Tuihalamaka, not only for letting me be such a small part of your beautiful day but introducing me to your family and their beautiful, respectful culture.
“I’m so in love with you & I hope you know,
Darling, your love is more than worth its weight in gold.
We’ve come so far my dear, look how we’ve grown,
And I wanna stay with you until we’re grey and old.”
