When Leah married Ben (see their wedding on Polka Dot Bride) in a countryside ceremony just outside Sydney- the heavens opened!

Leah’s words of wisdom stayed with me,” While many couples hope for sunshine on their wedding day, we had the direct opposite; however the poor weather only made the day more memorable. The most important thing for us was having a single aspiration for the day – to get married; accordingly we tried our best to not let the pouring rain bother us.”

I loved Letizia and Hunter’s wedding day (see more on Polka Dot Bride). It was full of the most beautiful Australian flowers and touches (Murray River pink salt? My favourite!). The couple were so full of love and joy on their wedding day.

“Our best man ran with his mouth open to catch a popping champagne cork. In mid air he flew to catch it and came crashing down on the concrete, barely missing a steal rod. He destroyed his suit and was bloody and bruised. We have a great pic of him recovering on the ground. I should note that this was at the beginning of photos! So funny. My aunt later taped up his suit with electrical tape. He is 6’9 so it just added to the humor when my 5’ foot maid of honour walked into the reception with him.”
