For most people buying a house is stressful enough, let alone carrying out extensive rebuilding work. Throw a wedding into the mix and things get a bit mad! Fortunately for Sydney couple Darrin and Kristie, their summer wedding turned out to be sunny, stylish and special despite some chaotic circumstances!
Fortunately, Kristie’s mum and bridesmaids were on hand to help and a number of fortituous things happened to assist with the planning. By coincidence, Kristie and her mum both found their outfits at the same time at the same store: and they also happened to be the very first dresses they tried on.
Not everything went to plan however. Darrin’s brother fell off the roof of the couple’s house while rebuilding work was done, Kristie’s mum sprained her ankle before the church rehearsal and her dad was sick the day before the wedding. Against all odds however their day dawned warm and sunny and everyone made it to the church on time.
After the ceremony, guests moved to the harbour side venue, which was decorated in a glamorous colour scheme of white, silver and black. White draped chairs were tied with black, tulle bows, black and white menus were placed at each table setting and tall silver candelabras gave the room a soft, warm glow. A stunning white cake in the shape of a hat meanwhile was adorned with beautiful flowers.
