Speaking shortly after the two ceremonies, the bride touched upon the sentimental meaning behind the celebrations. "I love that our wedding is a religious mash up," the bride exclusively told HELLO!. "We are taking beautiful traditions that we both grew up with and we are personalising them in a way that makes sense for us."
