Homes worlds apart were no obstacle for Keli’i Zablan and Kirrily Burden. Keli’I proposed in his home country of Hawaii and nine months later the pair were wed at Kirrily’s home at Wallington in front of family and friends from across the globe.
The pair fell in love while attending college in Utah in the United States.
Hard cover book served as the table settings for the pair of avid readers.
A sand ceremony combined sand from Keli’i’s favourite beach in Hawaii and sand from Ocean Grove, where Kirrily spent time growing up.
