One of the perks of this job is getting to experience a wide variety of cultures and traditions. One I hadn’t really known a whole lot about up until recently was the goings on of a Romanian wedding.
Emma and Daniel didn’t initially come to me with the goings on or what to expect until the morning of. I got to Daniel’s parents home in the Northern Suburbs of Adelaide and we started chatting and before I knew it I was entirely encapsulated in this very family oriented culture. Where families are huge and welcoming and food is forever being thrown in your general direction and where weddings are a big deal for everyone.
Love fuels more love in this environment and Emma and Daniel are proof of this. Australia’s Romanian community is apparently much larger than what I was aware of and they met at an engagement party for another couple in the community. It was love at first sight and even through two years long distance (as someone doing this myself I can definitely empathise with how hard this can be!) their love for each other blossomed and they found their forever person in one another.
