Claire and Dave...

How do I begin to tell you about the wedding of two of the most fabulous and creative people I have the pleasure of knowing?

After 8 years together, 3 of which were in spent living in Germany, Claire and Dave were officially married in Denmark in early 2011. However, they chose to celebrate their day by holding their wedding in Blue Mountain Heights in Queensland, on the 24th of March 2012 at Claire’s family home.

Their day was handmade and stunning, with the quirky, vintage styling of Claire and her mother, Jo. From the bunting lining the inside of the marquees, to the jars of preserves and jams as favours for the guests, the work that into this wedding was extensive, and the end result was magic. Her stunning sister Evelyn made the delectable cake and our dessert for the evening - home made ice-cream in an array of flavours with biscotti (one of my particularly favourite foods!). 

Claire derives from a terribly talented family. Being a graphic artist and business owner of Fellow Fellow in Singapore, she painstakingly created the invites for their guests, as well as the white dotted garlands decorating the ceremony venue and the bunting that was hung intermittently with the fairy lights in the marquees at the reception. We drank champagne, dined, laughed and cried along with beautiful speeches, and then got up to dance the rest of the night away to the swingin' tunes from a jazz band on the grass. 

This was truly an exceptional wedding. It was so Claire and Dave, and their love and joy was the undertone for the entire day. My favourite part of the whole day - watching Dave, who couldn't wipe the smile of his face every time he looked at Claire. It is a wonderful thing to know one of your most beloved people in this world is so dearly loved and adored.
