How did you guys meet?
What was the style of your wedding?
Fun, happy, colourful, and relaxed.
What inspired you to purchase Peggy and Finn products for your wedding day?
Malen loved the bright colours and fab designs, and the pink Banksia pattern worked so well with his green velvet jacket, as well as the rest of our colour palette! The bridesmaids wore pink and mustard/terracotta dresses, and we had been looking for something to match this weird colour combo – and finally we found the perfect ties! We both also love that the Banksia is an Australian flower – it really adds to the whole story.
Any special comments on the Groom & Groomsmen attire?
We wanted the boys to be comfortable, casual, semi tied together, but still nice looking! They picked grey tweed jackets, and Malen wore a velvet green jacket by MJ Bale which couldn’t have been more perfect. The Peggy & Finn ties and bow tie worked really well to TIE (hah) all the colours together. The groomsmen wore the long ties, and Malen wore the bow tie – just in case you couldn’t tell which one the groom was haha!
Tell us what was unique about your day?
A lot (if not most) of the elements at the event were made by hand – either by me or some rad supplier from in and around Melbourne. There were paper flowers in the bouquets and decorating the arbour as well as being wovem throughout the displays, pom poms in the bridal headpiece, individual pom pom badges for each guest (and each supplier involved on the day), a hanging streamer installation by Bangin Hangins (https://www.banginhangins.com.au/), signage, homemade wedding pies, the list goes on!
What was your favorite moment on your wedding day?
Walking down the aisle and seeing everyone I love in the same room in the same moment. Such bliss! And they were all looking so lovingly at us – it was just one big love fest!
Words of wisdom, What advice would you give to other couples who are planning their wedding day?
It’s going to be A LOT but you can totally do it. Stick to your guns and don’t be put off by people’s panicked advice. And dream BIG!
