Tim and I recently decided to break tradition and host an intimate Sydney elopement for our own wedding. This time, we were the bride and groom, joined by our nearest and dearest, including our unborn son.
Tim and I met during a music audition orchestrated by our friend Matt, leading to the birth of our band, Duke. Tim surprised me with a heartfelt proposal during a “babymoon”, making our engagement extra special.
Choosing the perfect venue was a challenge for us, given our extensive experience in the wedding industry. We settled on the Kimpton Margot, a dog-friendly, Art Deco hotel where Duke had previously performed. Our decision was based on its unique style, excellent food, and convenience, as well as being easily accessible for our guests.
For our wedding, Tim and I aimed for a modern, sophisticated, and luxurious yet relaxed vibe. We made a few personal touches to our celebration, such as an intimate first dance and heartfelt vows that brought tears to our eyes.
We credit our standout vendors, including hair and makeup artist Maria from Mia Loves Pretty, floral designer Elise Polito, celebrant Lisa Parker, and photographers Fiona & Bobby, for their exceptional contributions to the day. In A Maze captured the event beautifully in their videography.
Tim and I also created playlists for different parts of the day, adding a personal touch to our celebration. We’d like to offer some words of wisdom, emphasising the importance of trusting your vendors and accepting help when offered.
With the birth of our son, Arthur, Tim and I now embrace the joys and challenges of parenthood, cherishing the newest addition to our family.
