What Made Our Day Unique
We knew we didn’t want a cookie-cutter wedding, and that we wanted to involve as many of our guests as possible. Cal was the mastermind behind some (arguably) over-the-top ideas, such as a cake cutting "ceremony", complete with a Master of Cake Cutters (the Grand Duke Sir Lemon Drizzle), a 4-foot Celtic sword and the groomsmen kazooing "God Save the Queen". During the evening party between the band’s sets, we organized mandatory group karaoke, bringing unwitting family and friends up on to the stage to belt out the songs with us. The photos of everyone singing their hearts out are some of our favourites!
Morning SuitsAlthough the couple incorporated non-traditional aspects to their big day, they kept some things traditional, including the morning suits the groom and groomsmen wore (all 10 of them!). The bride chose a pretty low back, lace wedding dress from Essense of Australia that she paired with drop earrings and pastel pink wedding shoes. Perfectly complementing her bridal party, made up of seven bridesmaids wearing different variations of pastel pink and lilac dresses and clutching small bright bouquets.
Inspiration & Styling
The vibe for our day was elegant and botanical. We were fortunate enough to have glorious British summer weather on the day, allowing us to hold the cocktail reception outside on Rockley's beautiful grounds, with the wedding breakfast in a traditional marquee with the sides up. Our florals were English country garden-inspired wildflowers, interspersed with tall vases of foliage. The flowers, coupled with the tables and chairs placed directly on the lawn under the marquee, created a sense of being out in the British countryside, which we both love.
