We have known each other for 13 years, started as friends, and now we are a couple just married. We were very different people, maybe all the things you could think of, we are on the opposite side. Spent 4 years together, and we are still independent ourselves, but we are also inspired by each other and become similar at some point. For example, we are very much on the same page regarding marriage and wedding planning. I think we did make the day become what we wanted.
Was there a proposal? Tell us a little about it…
Yes, there is a proposal. Only two of us, last Christmas. – My favourite season of the year. He took me to the winery I always wanted to go to, and he accompanied me very attentively all day. There was my favourite song on the way back, and I think that day is the kind of day I like. He asked me to marry him after the day, which perfectly end the day.
Tell us about the vision you had for the mood or style of your wedding…
We hadn’t planned on having any wedding in the first place, and we both knew we didn’t like the format of the wedding. If there had to be a way to honour this day, it would be just the two of us. Find a place we like, get ourselves a glass of whiskey, have our favourite music in the background, and spend it quietly and simply.
When did you first realise that this was someone you’d like to spend the rest of your life with?
When we decided to be together, we never thought about breaking up.
What was one element you were happy to splurge on?
We choose Ross Farm as our ceremony place. We’re thinking of a million ways to celebrate this day, but we’ve never set a limit. The choice of the Ross Farm happened by accident. We saw it on social media, we immediately fall in love with the architecture! The Wabi-Sabi kind of vibes really got both of us, we both have a settled feeling in this place. We decided to spend three days at Ross Farm, and our ceremony eventually happened on one of those days.
Did anything happen on your wedding day that you laugh about in hindsight (even if it was stressful at the time)?
We thought everything would be easy, but we didn’t expect that when the day came, our minds would really go blank. I forgot the necklace, I forgot the veil, and I even got Anthony’s cuffs wrong. But it’s fine, it makes me laugh when I recall it.
Tell us about your main outfits, what was unique, and is there a story?
Vivienne – Wedding dresses are just not right for me. And I don’t want to buy something that I will only wear once. So I chose all the outfits I would wear on a normal day, but with a little bit of glitz in extra. I played a bit of mix and match when preparing my outfits like an extra-long veil to go with a plain white suit or gumboots & leather gloves to go with a fancy organza dress.
Anthony – Kept it simple, black & white! Something classic, something that’s me.
