Today we’re sharing a beautiful wedding in bold colors. “We met online… not on Tinder!” Camille had her dating profile which included a dinosaur and Glenn loved how different it was, so he started chatting about the difficulties and impracticalities of pooper and scoopering after such a large pet. Camille thought it was a gutsy move to talk about poo so soon, but after hours of chatting and joking, they went on coffee date together, which turned into lunch, and it would have turned into dinner if they both didn’t have prior obligations.

Glenn proposed to Camille at their favourite bushwalking spot. While Camille was distracted by baby birds, Glen starts rustling loudly in his pocket for something, so Camille turned around and said in an annoyed voice “What have you got in your pocket?”. He grinned and pulled a ring out of a plastic bag, got down on one knee and asked her to be his wife.

This wedding was truly epic. The couple was aiming for a whimsical, bold colors, colorful festival feel, where you could have plenty of fun. They didn’t do seated dinner, but instead they took their couches (in fact most of their furniture) as well as other elements they found or created for the wedding. The bride is a former florist so she created her own bouquet, helped the bridesmaids create their own and she even created her own archway with silk flowers ahead of time (impressive right?!).

A super fun wedding with giant Jenga, giant connect four, Finska and Boule’, fireflies, a battle dance off and food truck… What’s not to love this bold colors for a whimsical wedding?

Wedding Date: 15th September 2018
How many guests? 70
Wedding Budget : Unsure, but a lot of help from friends and family was invaluable.

How did you and your partner meet?
We met online… not on Tinder! Camille’s profile picture included a dinosaur, which ended up being one of the themes in our wedding. Glenn loved how different it was and started chatting about difficulties and impracticalities of pooper and scoopering after such a large pet. Camille thought it was a gusty move to talk about…poo … so soon, so after many hours chatting and joking we went for a coffee date at a local café. The coffee date turned into lunch and would have turned into dinner if we both didn’t have other obligations.

How did he propose?
We went for a bushwalk in our favourite spot and while I was distracted by baby birds, he started rustling loudly in his pocket for something. I turned around and said in an annoyed voice “What have you got in your pocket?”. He grinned and pulled a ring out of a plastic bag, got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife.

What do you love most about your partner?
Camille described her first impression of Glenn as though she was meeting a “Steve Irwin” like character and struggled to believe anyone could be that nice. Camille said she loves how kind hearted and helpful Glennis. She is so appreciative of their relationship and admires how passionate Glenn is of his career and family. She says, “he has helped me to be braver than I ever thought I could be”.

Glen said that he loves that everyday with Camille is an adventure. He admires that their personalities are so complimentary and enjoys seeing Camille live life in the moment. He says, “she makes me feel alive”!

What’s your most important piece of advice for creating and maintaining a strong relationship?
We support each other through the hard times and make time for fun.

Tell us about your wedding gown and how you chose it:
I didn’t want to try the gown on, and my bridesmaids made me. I then didn’t want to ever take it off!

What sort of style did you envision for your wedding day?
A colorful festival feel, nice and relaxed but with lots of fun.

What was your favourite moment from the day?
Coming back from taking photos, the sun had just gone down and as we were approaching the reception listening to the sounds of our guests laughing and talking. At this moment we were surrounded by fireflies and had an amazing moment together reveling in the magic of our wedding day.

Name your wedding soundtrack (aisle, reception entry, first dance songs):
Aisle – Stand by me by Florence and the Machine, entry – can’t remember, first dance – can’t remember the first dance however, later in the night there was an epic dance off to Dance off by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.

Any DIY elements?
So many! We poured our own creativity into every detail to produce a colorful, whimsical, festival feel wedding. We didn’t do a seated dinner, we took our couches (in fact most of our furniture) as well as some others and used elements we had found or created in the months before. The bride (a former florist did her own bouquet and helped the bridesmaids create their own. The bride made the wedding archway with silk flowers ahead of time.

Where did you go on honeymoon?
Stanthorpe for 3 days, although we did take a pre-wedding honeymoon to Europe and spend 3 weeks traveling through Barcelona, the South of France and northern Italy.

Any tips that you can give to future brides?
Don’t sweat the small stuff. It’s easy to get carried away and decide you really need this or that but on the day all that matters is the love you share with your partner.

Anything else you’d like to add?
We have so many special memories from our wedding. It was a day filled with emotions and laughter. A truly magical day.
