A Love Story steeped with tradition


Robynne first spotted Isireli on the dance floor of a South American bar. “He, beer in hand, was doing his best interpretation of salsa but I offered to teach him how to dance anyway,” laughs the bride.


The pair, aged 29 and 32, tied the knot with a ceremony at the She-Oak Grove and reception at Centennial Parklands in Sydney.


“Our priorities for our wedding day were fun, great food, lots of music and dancing,” says Robynne. “We wanted to make sure our guests were transported to our world to celebrate with us.”


The groom dressed for the occasion in a traditional Fijian Masi.
