Simone and Thomas were married at Mofo Lounge in Melbourne. The venue is decorated in a Moroccan theme so this set the tone for the wedding. The couple had a small budget so didn’t want to fuss around too much with extra décor or details.
“The actual inspiration for our wedding was everyone else and all the ‘When are you finally getting married?’ questions!” the bride laughed. “Because we like to have fun, we thought let’s just do it! Our theme was based around our venue, but it also had a bit of a vintage Hollywood influence with my dress.”
The bride’s dress was vintage and cost her just $380 including alterations. She bought her bouquet the day before when she saw it, already made up, for $20 in a florist’s shop window!
“Instead of a cake we had a lolly bar and chocolate fountain with fruit and Turkish delight. Our extra décor was simple. We had lolly tins for the party favours. We didn’t have to do anything with the venue because it was already decorated so well. It’s the only venue we physically looked at and we knew it was the one.”
