Rohan and Danielle's wedding theme:
01 September 2012
Number of Guests:
Sacred Heart Cathedral
Bride's Funniest Moment:Probably my small moment of panic when my garter kept sliding down my leg, before we were about to leave for the church. I had to get rid of it because knowing my luck I would probably fall over it, but it was my “something blue!” Luckily I had a BLUE Vicks Vapodrop with me (I had a cough the week before) and my bridesmaid, a pharmacist, suggested I pop it in for my walk down the aisle! Not only did I not trip over, I didn’t cough once during the service!
Styling Notes:We tried to create a 1950s-inspired day of elegance, because I love everything Audrey. My mum and I collected vintage crystal, English china and lace doilies from antique shops everywhere, to decorate our marquee tables. Rohan and I love going to the races with our parents so we couldn’t think of a more suitable venue for our reception; plus having a marquee meant that we could start with a blank canvas and style from our white carpet up to our crystal chandeliers! We really tried to have lots of personal touches ... table numbers were hand-embroidered by my bridesmaids and my nanna helped us to make batches of home-made raspberry jam for bonboniere!
Bride's special thanks:

Bride's Special Memory:
My little sister (and maid of honour) wrote and performed a song for us which left the whole room in tears. Rohan and I will never forget it.
Advice for other brides-to-be:Pick a definite theme and run with it. There are sooooo many choices when you are getting married that it is easy to get overwhelmed and totally confused! However, we found that having a theme helped us to make faster decisions because we just always said to each other, “what option works in best with the look we are trying to achieve?”
