Wagga Wagga must have made quite an impression on Yoshitaka Tsutsumi (generally known as "Yoshi").
He first studied English at the CSU Wagga Campus back in September 1993 when he did a six month course with the ELS Language Centre and came back again for a second course in 1994.
Last weekend he returned yet again with a whole new purpose in mind. This time he was accompanied by friends, family and his fiance Kyoko Maeda as they were married in St John's Anglican Church on Monday May 1st.
The wedding party included the bride's parents and two overseas friends that Yoshi first met when he was studying at the ELS Language Centre. Koichiro Harada from Japan and Garry (Chia Ming) Cheng from Taiwan both returned to Wagga with their girlfriends for the wedding ceremony and reunion.
Friends and former teachers from the language centre as well as current staff and students joined in the celebrations before Yoshi and Kyoko set off for their honeymoon in Brisbane.
