Michaela and Dave both love going out and dancing and so wanted their wedding to have that same feel. Their theme was ‘ A Disco Love Kid’s Party’ full of entertaining things to bring people together. They had face painting, a photo booth, colouring in and pick and mix! Ultimately, they wanted the wedding to feel like the most fun night out you can imagine and all in honour of their love.
They decided to only keep traditions that suited them. They had no sit down meal, the only speech was made by themselves, Michaela’s mum and dad walked her down the aisle and they both took each other’s names.
“I was so nervous before the ceremony that I couldn’t remember my age to tell the officiant,” Michaela laughed. “In our vows we included everything we felt was important for our lives together. We also added the last sentence which is what Leslie Knope and Ben Wyatt say to each other on Parks and Recreation as they are our couple goals… ‘I love you and I like you’. I walked into the Scala choir version of Teenage Dirtbag which means a lot to me since we were both misfit teenagers who feel lucky to have met each other and fallen in love (and mutual respect).”
