If you follow me on social media, you will have seen some snaps from the wedding already. I hope you don’t mind seeing them again!
We were so incredibly lucky to have our wedding, with close friends and family flying in from all over Australia and the world, before the COVID-19 shutdowns really took hold. It breaks my heart to hear about people having to cancel and indefinitely postpone their big day. Yes there are worse things happening in the world right now, but a lot of time, money, work and emotional labour goes into a wedding day so it would be hugely disappointing to have that disappear overnight.
Our wedding day could not have been more perfect. It was 27 degrees and sunny. Somehow all our friends and family made it to the right place at the right time. Some very special people worked really hard on setting up spectacular decorations at our two venues, and ensured our day ran smoothly. While it was a celebration of our love for each other, both Andy and I were quite overwhelmed with the outpouring of support from our family and friends in the form of their help, their time and effort. It just wouldn’t have happened without them. Andy and I actually cried the next day we were so grateful!
I will be sharing lots of aspects from the wedding and honeymoon in the coming weeks as I literally have nothing else to talk about.
We got our wedding video yesterday, if you’d like to see:
It’s by Bright Light Weddings who did a fantastic job. Our photos are by Kyra Boyer Weddings. We cannot rate Kyra highly enough, she is a delight and we can’t wait to receive our beautiful hard-copy album in a few weeks time.
Our wedding was in the small central Victorian town of Euroa, where my mum lived for 11 years. We had our ceremony in front a beautiful big old gum tree in the Seven Creeks Park followed by drinks at the neighbouring Euroa Croquet Club. We then walked the short distance to Northern Republic, a modern Italian restaurant in a beautiful old flour mill, for our reception. Our flowers were done by the local florist The Nest. My dress was from Raffaelle Ciuca in Brunswick , my bridesmaids got their dresses from ASOS and the boys suits are from Hallenstein Brothers. We danced to Groove Junction and had leftover wedding cake for days from Tegan’s Custom Cakes.
More to come…
