Bianca and Lachlan’s met over a mutual love of 1960s music, “We were both in a record store 11 years ago and somehow a very shy and introverted Lachlan made his way over to me (not at all shy or introverted) and struck up a conversation. We discussed 1960s music, our love for the Beatles, books, films and politics!”
They were married in February this year and wedding was inspired by all of these mutual loves, but particularly the 60s and films. “We absolutely adore the 1950s and 1960s so right from the beginning we knew that the wedding would have a reflection of those tastes”, explained Bianca. “I spent hours looking online at old wedding photos from both eras which gave me the inspiration for my dress, headpiece, gloves and veil along with the inspiration for our magnificent cake!”
I am an ENORMOUS Back to the Future fan, so when I saw Yael and Magen’s wedding, which took place on October 21st 2015 (hands up if you know the significance of this date!) I was so excited to share it.
The Jewish wedding was held in Jerusalem. “Getting married in Jerusalem was a big deal for me”, began the bride. “Jerusalem is where I was born and grew up and where Magen and I first met and lived throughout most of our mutual lives together. Our dream was to marry in a basketball court in town (like in the prom from the film…), but it didn’t work out. We ended up getting married in a venue inside the University in which we both studied. That was cool.”
“Our wedding date wasn’t random”, she continued, “October 21st 2015 was celebrated around the world as ‘Back to the Future day’, the day in which Marty McFly arrives to the future in the most brilliant trilogy ever – Back to the Future. As huge fans of the film we knew a chance like this can only come once in a lifetime and did everything in our power to make it happen.
While others around the world partied that day mostly by watching the film, we were getting married in a Back to the Future themed wedding!”
Max and Kristen were married at the groom’s family home, followed by their reception at a local amusement park! “We have a love for 50s fashion and general art and design aesthetics”, said the bride. “Lakeside Amusement Park supplied an art deco flare and an offbeat reception venue that we had always dreamed of having as a backdrop to our celebration.”
Their ceremony was in the back garden and it rained! “It started raining the exact moment that I stepped foot outside the house for my procession and it stopped right as the ceremony ended”, she laughed. They say that’s good luck, though! Since neither of us are religious, we wanted the ceremony to be focused on personal stories, readings from literature and poetry that have meaning to us, and friends.”
