Trina and Jessica wanted their wedding to be rustic, honest and personal so did a lot of DIY projects and picked Trina’s parent’s home as their venue.
“Every aspect of the wedding was personal,” explained Jessica. “From homemade signs for the tables and mum-in-law planting flowers around the house, to relatives making our bar and chuppa. Our close friend married us and our caterer was a personal friend as well. Everything had a personalised stamp on it and it made it really special.”
Although they planned for an outdoor ceremony, it rained heavily meaning they had to move it into the marquee. However despite the weather, the ceremony was the couple’s favourite part of the day. “Our ceremony was performed by our close friend,” said Trina. “It was short and simple and we wrote our own vows to make it special. It was down pouring by the time the wedding was supposed to start and everyone was on their phones tracking the patterns of the storm to decide if we should have the ceremony outside or under the tent! In the end we decided rain or shine it didn’t matter, we were getting married to the person we love so rain come at us! The moment we said ‘I do’ was our favourite part. It felt like finally being able to breathe knowing we’d made it to that moment. We were finally married!”
