Image from Mauritius: Happy Bride

Annoella, Bride from Mauritius
Annoella and Sebastien on their wedding day. By Sebastien Merion.

Annoella and Sebastien met in New Caledonia. Annoella is from Mauritius and Sebastien is from metropolitan France and has been living in and blogging about New Caledonia at 5 minutes en Nouvelle Caledonie. Says (Fr) the blogger of his 150-guest wedding last Friday:

We chose a ceremony in [Mauritian] Creole and French; mixing the two was important to us. We exchanged our vows in Creole… A traditional Sega dance welcomed us at the reception and there was music until the break of dawn. Hotel employees even told us that they had never seen such a beautiful wedding or a bride so thoroughly enjoy herself.
