Seles and Chian celebrated a simply beautiful wedding at the Grounds with their closest. Their day began with a traditional church ceremony followed by stunning photographs at Sydney’s most scenic locations and a very energetic reception. Lots of partying!
Chian proposed to Seles in 2019, at Long Jetty Wharf. He knew she loved being by the beach and loved sunsets. “It was so unexpected as he led me to believe he was proposing in Hawaii (a trip we had planned a few weeks after he actually proposed). We had dinner an intimate dinner with our family that night and then celebrated in Hawaii!” Seles told Wedded Wonderland.
With the couple being of different cultures; Seles being Indian and Chian being Sri Lankan, they had a few cultural pre-wedding rituals. Traditionally these are done separate, however they wanted everything to be done together. “This was special for us. Being able to share these celebrations together and bring our families together for it. We had so much fun, the rain held out and we had such perfect weather too!”
The most heart-warming moment for Seles was walking down the aisle, “It’s so true what they say. It flies by and happens so quickly. I remember not seeing or hearing anything else, other than him. It was the same for him too.”
Their wedding truly was the most perfect, magical and romantic night… Being serenaded by their saxophonist, their friends who sang and family who spoke!
Advice from the Bride
“It’s so cliche, but I wouldn’t change anything. We were originally meant to get married in November 2021, we pushed it back because of COVID. We had been planning for a while and I truly believe it all came to fruition just the way we had envisioned. Even more than we had hoped for! My only advice would be to order those little things like your on the day getting ready outfit for hair and make up, earlier. You often prioritize the bigger things and these can often be left a little too late,” Seles.
