One sentence sum up of the wedding vibe: A whirlwind day, fueled by friendship, laughter and champagne.

Other cool stuff we should know about: Our wedding was non-traditional from start to finish. However, given the proposal (by me) wasn’t really a proposal at all (more of an afterthought) it came as no surprise to our family or friends that the wedding didn’t conform to WIC conventions.

So, what did non-traditional mean to us?

  • No family
  • No white dress
  • A bridal party that was more interested in joking around than stuffy formalities. In fact, we were all dressed, ready, and waiting when the photographer rocked up to capture our preparations.
  • A stand-up reception in a cosy, boutique wine bar (with no music or dancing)
  • No made-up traditions (e.g. party favours)
  • A wedding banquet just for two at Michelin-star restaurant, Pied a Terre.

Favorite thing about the wedding: Having planned the wedding in tandem, the day was a genuine reflection of who we are as a couple. I can’t think of a better way to commence our married life.
