Not long ago, the totally awesome and wonderfully talented Tricia King from The Itchy Eyes emailed us these images of Jade and Murdoch’s wedding and our jaws immediately dropped. Never before had we seen a couple we so much swagger and such cute kids!
A week before their wedding, Jade and Murdoch were married by Queensland celebrant and all round nice guy Paul Voge – an idea that wasn’t as silly as it sounds. It simply meant that on the day, they could forget about formalities. They did however still exchange vows, with Jade’s son Victor stepping in afterwards as their resident super hero. His mother had clearly taught him everything he knew, later showing off her own powers by transforming her removable Sasha-Rose skirt (that was hiding her awesome playsuit) into a magical cape.
“It did take quite a lot of internet hunting to find the right dress for the right price. If I’d had my way I would have been wearing something crazy-beautiful by Jenny Packham but that would have blown our entire budget and I was very keen to stick to that. Jenny Packham makes the most amazing dresses though?.maybe for my next wedding?” says Jade, always the joker.
Determined to keep their wedding casual, Jade made their cake (decorated with a cool cake topper by MelaboWed) and asked guests to bring a plate for their afternoon picnic, accompanied by plenty of home brewed beer. Jade tells us, “the lead up was surprisingly smooth. I think because we managed to stick to our budget and were pretty accepting of the fact that things didn’t have to be £perfect.
The Itchy Eyes are a favourite here at Hello May and we are excited to hear that owner Tricia is currently rebranding and will henceforth be known as, well, Tricia King. Makes perfect sense really and we can’t wait to see her new logo later next month! In the mean time be sure to check out more of her work here, here and here.
