Kirsten and Gareth were marred at Wagner Cove in Central Park. They decided to skip the big wedding, choosing to say “I do” while on holiday in the USA. Kirsten’s incredible blue dress was from Temperley London.
“We met in 2008 at a mutual friend’s birthday party and went on our first date to a sushi train a couple of months later”, explained Kirsten. “Gareth tried to impress me by eating a packet of wasabi, without knowing about its eye-wateringly spicy effects.”
“Our wedding was wintery, Christmassy, New York-y and magical. Instead of having our wedding in Australia, where we live, surrounded by family and friends, we decided to go to America for two months and get married in the middle of our holiday. It was absolutely the best decision for us and I am so glad we did it. I felt that if we had a ‘traditional’ wedding, the day would be spent trying to please other people, rather than enjoying ourselves. Plus, we didn’t fancy spending a ridiculous amount of money on what ultimately is only 8 or 9 hours of your life.”
