Georgia and Vince’s wedding was hosted in the most beautiful little chapel we’ve ever laid eyes on. It was brought to life by their love of the 50s and 60s and their lovely personal and romantic day.
“Vince and I share a love of all things mid-century,” Georgia explains, “including the music, the fashion, the hairstyles, and the cars. When we became engaged, we both knew exactly what we wanted for our wedding and took influence from our love of the 50s and 60s.”
Georgia looked stunning in a beautiful polka dot tulle rockabilly dress from Pixie Pocket and a retro style veil from Me and My Girl Vintage, which sat atop her perfectly curled hair and vintage-inspired make up. Also – JUST LOOK AT HER LOVE HEART NAILS! Fierce and we’re feeling it.
Vince wore all black from Ferrari Formal Wear, with a black polka dot pocket square. We also love that Georgia and Vince got ready together in the morning, before Georgia got changed for an intimate first look.
Sarah and Simon, both artists, wanted their wedding to be completely and utterly them. They chose to elope, with just three witnesses in attendance in a private cabin in the beautiful blue mountains outside Sydney. After the ceremony they made vegan lasagne for everyone. There were dried flowers, handmade map invitations and the bride wore a black (completely non-bridal) dress!
“We first met when Simon was travelling through Europe and spent some weeks in Berlin where I was living”, began Sarah. “We’re both artists and we met by chance at a life drawing evening run by some mutual friends.”
Botanical Gardens are pretty stunning in themselves, and make a real a showstopper of a wedding venue. Add that to a bride and groom channelling all the glamour of old Hollywood and you get a hands-down winner of a day.
Morgaine and Kyle met via a dating app. Kyle was the first person she spoke to – and the last! They said, “It was really easy and we were absolutely perfect for each other… It’s quite creepy when we look back at it! We don’t really believe in things like fate but maybe there was a bit of that sprinkled into it! After our first date at the pub, it was clear that this wasn’t just an ordinary meet and greet – there was a ridiculous amount of humour and affection. We both knew this was unlike any date we’d experienced.”
It was actually Morgaine who proposed to Kyle, he explained that “She thought, ‘Well, if he can ask, why can’t I?’ so she bought me some vintage onyx cufflinks from eBay and started planning the proposal. One of our favourite bands, Flowertruck, was due to play just before Christmas 2016, so Morgaine got in touch with them and asked if they would like to be part of the proposal. They were thrilled, and she arranged for them to stop mid-gig to announce that she had a question to ask me. Once they said that she (in the middle of the crowd) dropped to her knee and asked me if I’d marry her. I said yes, and the rest is history! We used this story as part of our celebrant Nathan’s intro during the ceremony.”
