Fanny and Chris’ wedding theme can best be described as Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette meets Tim Walker with a sprinkling of Baz Luhermann’s Romeo and Juliet! They wanted their wedding to be personal, stick to their budget and to transport their guests to their own magical world.
“Neither of us had been to many weddings and we didn’t really look at any typical bridal publications,” explained Fanny. “We really wanted to transport our friends and family to a little world of our own imagining.”
Their ceremony was a combination of traditions from lots of different cultures and was family oriented. “We were so lucky to have one of our closest friends marry us. It meant we could write the ceremony exactly as we wanted. Chris and Pete researched traditions from other cultures and created a ceremony that felt very personal and just right for us. We borrowed the Celtic tradition of hand binding by draping ribbons across our held hands while reciting promises we intend to keep to each other throughout our married life.”
