From the time we started seeing each other to when we got enagaged I hadn’t thought twice about marriage because there was no need. It felt immediately unwritten, unsaid and completely understood that we would be together for the rest of our lives.
So when Constant proposed, ringless and in nothing but togs, it was given. We both live and work in Sydney in pretty demanding jobs with fairly antisocial work hours so when we coordinate time off together we keep it simple. Friends, family, food. I think that sums up our wedding too!
We wanted the wedding to be in Sydney because it’s been our home and a very beautiful one at that. We had our ceremony down at Bradleys Head and the reception at Athol Hall. All the flowers and styling was done by Emily of eMh space who did the most stunning job. She can do anything from creating these incredible hanging flowers pieces which worked perfectly with the existing elements of the hall to making our dreamy headpieces and buttonholes. I also loved the simple proteas on the tables which I have now hung and dried to keep forever!
We had a brilliant musician called Graeme James from NZ who created the best dance floor of all time and had everyone on their feet until the very end. The photographer Evan nailed the brief and captured the day so naturally, I seriously did not even notice him there and he somehow managed to get every moment perfectly.
