I have to say when I first laid eyes on Bodie & Beck’s wedding I went all girlish and excited and started thinking very naughty thought about that party of groomsmen… I’m sorry, I’m sorry… but come on! How sexy are these boys? I even sneak peeked a shot of them on my facebook page (to share their beauty you understand) and… well… I’ve never seen so many smitten girls all in one place. It was pretty funny!
But just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, I saw the rest of the wedding! How gorgeous is the bride (hello tattoo envy anyone?!) In fact I just about cried with jealousy over how damn cool the whole thing is… and they are. I’m very professional indeed. I love this wedding more than life itself. Who’s with me?
The Australian couple were married at Lyrebird Falls in Kallista, Victoria. The groom’s mother made Beck’s dress and Bodie’s outfit in it’s entirety. What a talented lady!
Happy Friday! I hope you’ve all had a great week… but if not it’s definitely going to end on a high with the weddings I’ve got to share with you today. Starting with this cute-as-hell, wish-I-was-there, rocking-Aussie-party wedding!
Meg & Paul wedding was held at St Kilda Kingdom Hall of Jehovahs Witness and City Tiler in Port Melbourne. The bride wore a dress which she designed herself and had made from laser cut silk. Her lace peep toe boots added yet more interest and her red jacket, which may have had the primary objective to keep her warm, looked totally ace with her ensemble. Gotta love a bride who bucks the usual bridal trends!
“We just wanted our wedding to be a relaxed party where our friends danced all night,” wrote Meg, “… and they did. If we had to have a theme, it would have simply been ‘a celebration’. We wanted a relaxed atmosphere, no sit down formal dinner, no bridesmaids or groomsmen, no drama, a party with no formalities, and that’s exactly what we got. Good people, good food, cool music. Our friends and family ate and drank and danced and smiled all night.”
Oh Jeremy & Laura how the hell did you get so awesome? I’d like to bottle some of it up and sell it…
Backyard weddings always get me excited. Not only is having a wedding at home a lovely symbol of starting your married life at a place that really means something to you, but it also means you don’t have to drop £10,000 to hire an empty space.
“Our wedding was all about making and celebrating memories of our favorite people, music, booze and food in our home”, the couple told me. “We weren’t really inspired by anything other than knowing what we didn’t want. And we only gave ourselves ten weeks to do it.”
