“I screamed mostly due to the relief of not plummeting to my death, but also I had no idea this was even on the cards we have forever talked about how we didn’t need marriage, that it was a tradition we could live without, and in that split second we had joined the rest of the world schmucks in the painstaking task of wedding planning.”
Held at Miss Traills House and The Walshaw Hall in New South Wales, the list of crazy, unexpected mishaps didn’t look to dissimilar to an episode of Faulty Towers, the couple tell us that some things are just a blessing in disguise, like meeting their photographers It’s Beautiful Here.

“It came to my shins and wrists and tied in the middle with a silk sash. It kept so well for the past 30 years wrapped in tissue paper in my mums wardrobe. Both my sister and I had always wanted to wear it – I just got in first,” she tells us, adding that a feeling of comfort and elegance was the couple’s only ‘theme’ and that DIY was a must.
