Anna & Tim – Samoan Wedding Melbourne

Anna&Tim-401

If you’ve never been to a Samoan wedding, get yourself invited to one immediately! Anna & Tim’s incredible wedding filled with tradition blew me away. Both quietly spoken, and beautifully smiley people, I was pleasantly surprised to see the celebration errupt from Anna and Tim!

From the moment I arrived to see the boys getting ready and I heard them casually bust out a perfectly harmonised tune I was mesmerised. These boys can sing!

This beautiful traditional mat was lining the aisle and the alter. Framed with flower petals and with the aroma of fresh lilies in the air, you’d be forgiven for forgetting that you were in Melbourne at all.

The bridal party was full of cousins, sisters, brothers and best friends, but mostly it was full of soooooooo many beautiful people! And they all knew each other so well, they took the party where ever they went!

One of the traditions I was unaware of is to gift the wedding cake to people of importance at the wedding. Whole tiers were wrapped and taken to people in the room, with the final portion being cut up to be served to the guests for dessert. The bridesmaids gathered around to portion the cake up and deliver it. The tradition I loved the most though, were the performances. Energetic dancing, amazing singing and SO. MUCH. LOVE. Every performer kept eye contact with Ana and Tim and gave it their ALL. The performances and costumes had all been created and rehearsed especially for this wedding.
