Self-proclaimed creatives, it was clear from the start that Jessie and Daniel would have one epic wedding day. “When we dreamed up our wedding, we wanted the whole experience to be a lot of feasting, dancing, shouting and fun. We wanted it to be more laid back; bohemian style. If I was to sum up our wedding “theme” in 4 words, I’d say: forest, wood, bohemian and festive.”
Determined to be “a barefoot little fairy without a care in the world” on her wedding day, Jessie opted for a gorgeous Rue De Seine dress. “I chose the comfiest and most flowy dress I could find! I wanted to be free to dance and feast. It was perfect,” says Jessie, who adds that she found Shane Shepherd through Hello May.
“Our photographer was such a legend – at the end of the reception our little page boy got burned by a bit of sparkler and Shane rushed him into the bathroom and got him under cold running water immediately. You want people like that at your wedding,” the bride explains, admitting that the food was one of the best parts of the day thanks to cake-maker Tome and caterer Lefkas.
“People are still raving to us about the food, and that just made us stoked cause no one likes a wedding where you go home hungry.” Amen to that!
