Wedding of the week: Brittany and Lucky Nawani

This couple celebrated their special day twice - and the ceremonies couldn't have been more different.

Brittany's brother wanted to do something special for their big day and is a fan of "drifting" - so the couple happily posed for photos with him drifting in his car in the background.

Brittany and Lucky Nawani tied the knot twice. Their first wedding was a year ago in India, and embraced Lucky's Indian background.

At their second wedding they embraced a little danger - happily posing for wedding photos with Brittany's brother "drifting" in the background. This ceremony was held on March 18 at Lake Gardens in Inglewood, Taranaki.

(Drifting is a controlled four-wheel skid, used by racing drivers to take bends at high speed.)

The couple began dating in 2011, after meeting at a juice bar in Taranaki that Lucky worked at.

Six months in and Lucky moved to Auckland to complete his hotel management studies, which left the couple travelling between Auckland and Taranaki to see each other.

Brittany stayed in Taranaki as she was only 16 at the time, but eventually moved up to Auckland where they got a small studio apartment together in the city.

After discovering city life wasn’t for them, they travelled around New Zealand to find somewhere to call home. They settled in Queenstown for almost three years - they bought their first car, a puppy and worked together before deciding to make the move back to Taranaki where it all began.

On January 18th, 2016 the couple took a road trip to the Coromandel for Lucky’s birthday and in front of their close friends Lucky proposed to Brittany.

Lucky originates from India, so the couple decided to not only have one wedding, but two.

And so just over a year after the proposal, the couple and Brittany’s parents travelled to India where they had their first wedding which embraced Lucky’s Indian culture.

After their return they begun planning their second wedding, and with only five months to plan the couple settled on a small and intimate ceremony.

Brittany says her brother wanted to do something special for their big day and is a fan of "drifting" - so the couple posed for photos with him drifting in his car in the background.

They made it official in front of 35 of their closest family and friends at the Lake Gardens in Inglewood, Taranaki.
