Cultural Fusion: A Traditional Greek And Cook Island Wedding


Niki and Jayd’s love story resembles the perfect mix of two cultures. Niki is of a Greek background while Jayd is of a Cook Island background, and together on their wedding day, they showcased an incredible fusion of traditions from their homelands.

From a Greek Orthodox Church Ceremony to a having a traditional Cook Island haka entrance performed by the boys, the union of these two lovebirds was uniquely beautiful. The couple had friends and family travel from Melbourne, New Zealand, The Cook Island and Germany, to be with them on their special day.

According to Niki, the most memorable part of their big day was the fact that they did not exactly follow tradition, as she had both of her parents walk her down the aisle. A sweet alternative, isn’t it, Fairies?

Tip from the bride: “Looking back, we wish we could have made more time to speak to everyone that had attended.”
