Petronella brings the truth to this episode of the show!

Multi-cultural weddings. What are they, really, and what can you expect if you are planning or photographing one? That is our focus with speaker, educator and wedding photographer Petronella Lugemwa. We dive into what the definition of a multi-cultural wedding is (and how if you think you’ve never had one, you’re probably wrong) and why it is so important to really immerse yourself into the culture, traditions and nuances of your multi-cultural couples, whether it’s by race or religion.

So grab your coffee and your tea, and let’s talk it out!
