A Wedding with Three Ceremonies Where Nothing Went as Planned

Mursal and Manny dated in secret for four years, so even though 2020 meant they had to have an elopement ceremony, it actually ended up being a pretty perfect metaphor for their relationship. The day didn’t go to plan AT ALL and they were running super late to the ceremony so the location had to be changed 45-minutes before so they didn’t miss sunset.

The couple showed up at the new location just 6-MINUTES before sunset! They were married as the sun passed the horizon, and they ate burgers on a cliff to celebrate. Because of the relocation, their friends missed the ceremony since they showed up 30-minutes later, after the sun was already set. The couple wanted their friends to hear their ceremony, so they did the whole thing again…in the dark… in a car park using car headlights and phone torches for lighting.

Down to Earth Rainbow Wedding

After years of fighting for equality, and although gay marriage (rather than civil partnerships) is still not legal in Switzerland, Jasmin and Lorena’s didn’t want to wait one second longer to be wife and wife. They planned a celebration that was both down to earth and timeless, but celebrated who they are and their love.

“Both our dads led us down the aisle, Lorena first. We had two singers who were close friends and a guitarist played the song Everything by Michael Bublé. One of our friends led the ceremony, which was truly emotional. They then asked for the audience’s support and to fight for the freedom to marry. Everyone stood up and clapped their hands to show their support to us and other queer couples.”

When you think of a 1980s themed wedding you’d be forgiven for assuming it would all be bight colours a little bit tacky… Well, Julia and Mike’s Palm Springs nuptials were anything but!

Pebble Beach Elopement in Italy

Michael and Jenna, from England, have known each other since they were three! They decided to go to Italy to elope on the pebble beach below the cliffs of Punta Aderci in September. They stayed in Abruzzo for four days with three of their friends.

Having a destination ceremony meant they hired the wedding planners at Creamano to pull everything together for them. “Our wedding was intimate and so sweet”, they told us. “The pandemic made everything more complicated but we were determined to do what we wanted and to be ourselves. We really appreciate everything our wedding planner and photographer did for us.”

Micro Australian Beach Wedding with a Silver Sequin Dress

Jac and Matt’s November wedding was, like so many 2020 couples, smaller than they thought it would be. Although they didn’t get the big party of a wedding which they initially planned, after having to reschedule twice, they decided to pair everything back and just elope on a beach instead.

The couple met when they were teenagers but lost contact, only reconnecting in their mid-twenties. They had a ceremony at Sandringham Beach in Victoria followed by a cake cutting and drinks reception at the nearby park. Matt’s mum put together a platter of nibbles and made a cake, and Jac’s sister made a cocktail for everyone.
