“Our story is set in three cities and two countries. Kandarp was born in Melbourne and grew up in New Zealand with Indian parents. Matilda was born in China and grew up in New Zealand with Kiwi adoptive parents.” – Together Journal

“Our wedding location was Pencarrow Lodge in Wellington. The coastline was phenomenal and easily one of the most beautiful locations we have set eyes on in Aotearoa. Three words that shaped the style of our wedding were elegant, cultural and personal. We chose neutral colours throughout our wedding to create a timeless look, evident in the acrylic signage, arch and flower arrangements, outfits and ceremony layout. We were especially stoked with how the ceremony layouts turned out. For the Chinese tea ceremony, the inside space and décor already worked well and we did not have to do a whole lot more. For the civil ceremony, Wellington is known for its wind, so it was a risk planning to have this ceremony not only outside, but also on a precipice. Thankfully the weather was miraculously calm that day and we could go ahead with our dream setting. Matilda’s parents, along with the help of a family friend, did an amazing job at creating our ideal look. Matilda’s dad constructed the arch, while her mum and family friend did the floral arrangements. The wooden benches were also carefully selected and arranged to achieve the aesthetic we were going for. Can we also point out that the groomsmen suits were on point?! Kandarp put a heck of a lot of thought and effort into deciding on these and it definitely paid off.” – Together Journal
