Amit & Meghna
Amit and Meghna are a power couple in every sense of the word. Amit is a professional boxer and coach, and Meghna would run circles around most people. They met through their mentors at fitness college where they both studied, and it was this common passion that connected them.
This is what you notice when you first meet them, but after spending just a few minutes in their presence, you quickly realise that these guys are leaders in so many other ways. They’re mentors and role models to so many people around them, and humble enough to acknowledge and credit their success to their friends and family who have guided them into the awesome people they are.
We had originally planned to take in some of Auckland’s gardens and more scenic spots, but Auckland’s changeable weather had other ideas! We were fortunate enough to be able to sneak into one of our favourite spots and shelter from the passing showers. While it was little different from our original plan – I completely love how these turned out!
Their wedding ceremony at Glasshouse Morningside was a combination of a traditional engagement ceremony, followed immediately by their civil wedding ceremony. Being able to combine these two important traditions into their day was the perfect nod to their families and cultural heritage.
Amit’s family were sadly not able to attend, but this didn’t stop them from participating from afar. You’ll notice throughout the day a TV monitor featuring heavily throughout the evening. This was the means by which Amit’s family were able to share speeches and dances prepared for Amit and Meghna and it was amazing to see their faces right up the front alongside Meghna’s family.
The absolute highlight of the evening that had all of us choked up – were Amit and Meghna’s speeches. I won’t be able to do wither of them justice, so if you want to see what I mean, head on over to their wedding video here and see for yourself.
I can’t wait to join you guys for your next wedding in India 😉
