“Relaxed” is the most common word l hear from couples to describe their perfect wedding.
However, not many achieve this quite as well as Lauren and Lyall.
The day chosen for their commitment ceremony turned out to be a sunny 22 degrees and their hopes for a beach wedding came to fruition. Lauren had bought a beautiful dress of the rack, Lyall was wearing his new ‘work’ suit and they travelled with their six guests to the location less than 5km from their home.
I had introduced Lauren to a local photographer, Erin and Friends, who was able to capture stunning photos of their day.
Everyone was calm and Lauren was the most stress-free bride l have seen in a long time.
The ceremony was personal and romantic, exactly what they had wanted and perfectly suited to them as a couple.
After the ceremony Lauren and Lyall popped a bottle of Champagne (plus a bottle of non-alcoholic bubbles for the pregnant bride) and toasted their new union with the six most important people in their lives.
This toast and the conversation that followed were the absolute highlights of the wedding for me. So often l see couples bombarded with hundreds of guests congratulating them and then they rush off leaving their own party for hours to capture photos of their day. Lauren and Lyall were able to stay and just enjoy the moment.
Days later l caught up with them again to officially make them husband and wife. What could be more relaxed than signing your marriage certificate at your dining room table.
