Emily and Jan's boat-access, micro wedding was pure magic. Jan wore a vintage suit while Emily was in a hand-dyed, hand-made red wedding gown. Only their closet family and shaggy dog made the Covid-cut guest list for the day which took place on Slocan Lake in British Columbia. They were wed under a lovingly homemade driftwood arch on a private cliff, which could only be accessed by boat. After the ceremony they ate charcuterie and cliff jumped - perfection!

Baglio di Pianetto, a winery in Sicily, was the setting for Jenn & Mike's intimate wedding last year. Pre-pandemic, they still opted for a small wedding, inviting just 20 guests. The wedding took place on a Tuesday evening and after a short, symbolic ceremony, they hosted a simple Sicilian meal for their loved ones. They kept things as fuss-free as possible - there was no band, no big décor elements and no forced itinerary for the day.

Molly and Jackson knew soon after they started dating that they didn’t want a ‘regular’ wedding. Attending a bunch of friends’ weddings together in 2014 (before they were engaged!) solidified in their minds what they did and didn’t want. They decided then and there that when it came to their turn to get hitched, they didn’t want to pick out tablecloths or plan a seating chart. Instead, they wanted an adventure!

As same sex marriage was not yet legal where they live in Australia, Scott and Carlos chose to have their destination wedding in New York, which for them, represents a multicultural, vibrant and positive city where millions of different people co-exist. Being in New York meant they were able to forget all their worries - how LGBTQ rights were about to be put out for debate in Australia and the furore that surrounded it, about going back to an unknown future in their home country of Venezuela that was/is falling apart, or the daily struggles and challenges in their everyday lives - and simply celebrate their love.
