Like many couples over the past two years, Maxine and Tom felt like they were planning four different weddings, after postponing once due to COVID, and trying to keep up with the ever changing restrictions around weddings. While there were compromises and disappointments (interstate and overseas guests couldn’t celebrate with them), the couple stayed true to what they wanted from their wedding day, and thankfully were able to create a day which they look back on with joy. Maxine and Tom’s wedding was a beautiful mix of so many different elements. The couples say they wanted “romantic, yet fun and inclusive with a good blend of both of our cultures. Our wedding incorporated a wonderful mix of rustic, neutral and earthy tones in the floral arrangements and overall styling at our reception, with the industrial style of the venue.”

Superstar suppliers like Plant 4 Bowden, Emma Faith Photography and Flowers in Nature made the planning process so much simpler, and gave Maxine and Tom the unique and beautiful day they deserved. We think these words from Maxine and Tom sum up how you should approach your wedding celebrations: “Do what makes you happy, don’t feel obliged to follow traditional norms and values of a wedding. Wear the ‘non-white’ dress, make it a surprise, choose an unconventional and unique location, create a digital platform – just do it YOUR way! You’ll never regret staying true to yourselves.”
