You know what I love about this wedding? Well, other than the fact that it’s sooo, sooo lovely? It’s literally overflowing with happy. That kind of pure, unadulterated joy that jumps straight from every gorgeous moment captured by fotoJOJO and right into your home via your computer screen. It’s image after glorious image of smiling faces, laughing guests and some downright heartwarming moments all wrapped up in a full gallery of pretty. Join me there for every last second of glee.
from fotoJOJO… This one melts my heart! A wedding packed with stunning details with such a relaxed and fun atmosphere and a whole lot of love! Donna and Simon are going to be one of those couples you see, when they are 80 and still holding each others hand and looking lovingly into each others eyes. I just know it! Their love for each other just oozes from them and their wedding day was no exception!
Marriage, itself, wasn’t a top priority to them. Their love for one another, their 3 beautiful children, their families and their health and happiness are. They were together because they loved to be together. When life threw just about everything it could at them, it was finally time to say “I do” in front of all their family and friends.
I love it when a bride thinks of every beautiful detail. Donna is the queen of details and each of those details had a such flare. The ceremony was complete with stunning hanging flower arrangements, beautifully designed ceremony programs printed on hand fans for guests to cool themselves down, which were stored in a delicate vintage suitcase that belongs to Simon’s grandmother, who couldn’t make the wedding. And then there was the wedding motif, designed around the pattern of the lace on Donna’s dress, tying the whole thing together.
And, it doesn’t stop there. The seating plan was made up of hilarious nicknames for all the guests, the kids had games and movies to entertain them and the girls bathroom had the most kitted out emergency basket I have ever seen!
The day started at Rockit barber shop, where Simon and best man, Aaron, got spruced up with a traditional straight shave. It was then on to the Park Hyatt to catch Donna slipping into her dress before heading across the road to the Fitzroy Gardens with their two beautiful girls in an awesome vintage Kombi. It definitely sums up a beautiful day!
