#REALWEDDING: KATE & DAVID
MELBOURNE, VIC • 9 MARCH 2018 • 100 GUESTS
ON THE DRESS
"After looking for a few months, I was starting to give up and although it sounds cliché, I definitely had a special feeling as soon as I put it on. I had to have it. "
"Our first look. We decided to do a first look and don’t regret it one bit. Not only did it settle our nerves, we got time to spend the moment with our closest friends and our dogs."
ON THE VIBE
"We planned and did almost everything ourselves, along with the help of many family and friends."
"Finally being able to call each other husband and wife after 11 years. A great chance to throw a huge party in our own honour. Most importantly, knowing that we both want to spend the rest of our lives with our best friend."
3 WORDS TO DESCRIBE THE DAY...
"Best day ever!"
"We had a great deal of help from friends and family, some of whom run small businesses and gave their time. The rest of our vendors were incredible too, from the flowers to the food; everything was perfect."
ON THE VENUE
"The Independent was the perfect reception venue with amazing food & staff. They took the pressure off us for a few hours after doing so much ourselves."
WORDS OF WISDOM
"Give yourself plenty of time and don’t be afraid to ask people for help. Everyone wants to be apart of the day and they feel special when you ask them to be involved. "
