Real Wedding in Nepal immersed in the culture
This sweet couple, Susanne and Fredrik, are filled with wanderlust and a passion for travel and cultural exploration. Our hearts skipped a beat reading the story below of this real couple who helped to demonstrate the beauty of a wedding in Nepal, which is anything but mainstream. Film photographers, Nina & Wes, held a gathering with fellow wedding artists to explore this beautiful, small, and raw country and each detail and image tugs at our heart strings. Be sure to read below and feel inspired by this couple's joy from new experiences...
From workshop hosts and photographers Nina & Wes Mullins: "This wedding story came about because of a desire to celebrate true love and culture in the midst of a country that is surrounded by natural beauty. This is a real couple that loves travel and hiking and adventure. So this story unfolded quite naturally for them in the heart of Nepal. We wanted to show future brides and grooms that a wedding in Nepal is something that can be done, and it can be an incredibly intimate and special occasion. They walked through the streets of Nagarkot as any couple would that loves to be surrounded by the culture and people of this tiny country. Children and adults alike became curious and walked with the bride and groom, as they made their way to the wedding feast. These are people who are local to Nagarkot and have thriving businesses that serve the local and tourist population, and their kindness is ever-present. We loved watching them make their way to the reception with the bride and groom."
