With an array of stringent regulations, navigating dress codes can be overwhelming. Together Journal has turned to the experts at Crane Brothers for guidance.
Nikita — I’m a film/commercial producer. Matt owns and runs Shared Space. Our family includes our little boy Arthur and our miniature dachshund, Archie. We met on a blind date in 2014, which was a bit comical as neither of us had been on a blind date before. We ran into a few of Matt’s … Read more
Jack — Jucinta is a flame that cannot be put out. A wildfire, if you like. The three times we met before we got together proved how small the world can be and not to take any moment for granted, no matter how insignificant it may seem.

Thomas: We were travelling across Europe visiting family when I proposed. We were in Paris and, to Danielle’s dismay, I asked her to pose yet again for another #FollowMeTo photograph in front of the Eiffel Tower.
Wanting to have a kick-ass wedding on a budget meant doing a lot of the work ourselves, but we did a good job. Layne and I were able to source second-hand candles, vases and new black linen napkins on Facebook Marketplace.
