Jo & Sian had an intimate wedding at Upper Reach Winery in Baskerville, Australia. As gay marriage is not legal in Australia (yet!) they decided to buck most traditions and just do things their own way! “Our officiant was my brother Kieren,” Sian began. “This was one of the most important decisions for us. As gay marriage/commitment is not legal in Australia we didn’t have the requirement to have a so called official celebrant to perform our ceremony. I lieu of this we wanted somebody who was really important to us and who we knew was 100% supportive of us and our relationship to perform celebrants duties and go on to be the MC for the evening. By brother Kieren is one of the most amazing people we have in our lives and he has always been there for both me and Jo. We wouldn’t have chosen anybody else. I wrote the vows myself.”
Sian designed her own wedding dress which she then had made by Kubank Designs. She also handmade the jewellery that she wore. Her bridesmaids wore shocking pink dressed from Aqua which they accessorised themselves as Sian wanted each girl to put their own individual stamp on their look. Jo also put together the outfits she and her ‘bromaids’ wore from various sources including Roger David, Tarocash and YD.
