Kimberley knew exactly what she wanted from her first point of contact: “I am looking for someone to see us through this day with love, laughter, and ease.. with a great party to follow My vision is that friends and family will come and not want to leave.”
She and husband Dan have always done things their own way. They have a 4-year old and a 5-month old, and wanted them included in the ceremony. And Kim had an idea how: she wanted to create a family painting.
And so that’s what we did.
“The family portrait the 4 of them will create may look like a piece of random art when you see it hanging in their home. But you will know there is a clear theme to it: 2 strong people come together, balance in the middle, create 2 incredible children. All 4 mark this moment in time in their very own way.”
What I love about co-creating is that you know the ceremony, are able to be more present, to enjoy the ceremony more. That was obvious..we built in a few zingers for the guests…and they “got” them all, since we went totally unplugged (all electronic devices off except for the professionals.)
You can get a sense of their wedding: relaxed, casual, joyful and yet heartfelt in this beautiful video clip from Cassie O’Neill Cinematography.
But the real smile came for me when Kimberley later offered this: “The best compliment we got was from a groomsman who said,’ your day was awesome it was like a giant party all day, not a stuffy wedding’.”
