ON THE VIBE

"We really just wanted it to be a big dinner with our mates. Not dissimilar to having people over for a dinner party but without having to clean up."

ON MARRIAGE

"It means confirming we are a team and an ongoing expression of that. The wedding is a celebration of that with the people we love."

FAVE MOMENT

"We enjoyed a quick pot of draught at the pub near the reception venue. It was the perfect time to have 10 minutes to ourselves, reflecting on the fact we were married! Bonus was that we got a bunch of marriage advice from the locals!"

WORDS OF WISDOM

"Decide what you want and make it happen. It's so easy to be lured in to all the things you 'need' for a wedding. Cake toppers, favours, something blue, anything. Just curate as much as possible—it’s about you, not about a magazine spread."
