Esmeralda and Lindsay - Married April 7th in Cambridge, UK

Four years and one dog later, Es and Lindsay celebrated their wedding with their friends and family in their new home in Cambridge, UK.
Ilanucă and Ionuţ - Married April 14th in Breb, Romania

Priyamvada and Divyabhan - Married April 22nd in Rajasthan, India
Turning perceptions of arranged marriage on its head, Priya – the youngest princess of the Bhinder Royal Family – and Divyabhan’s wedding took place at 440-year-old palace Rajmahal Bhindar.
