Why hello 2014, you seem to have come along a heck of a lot faster than I was prepared for. But I do have something rather beautiful to start off the year with – Kat & Seb’s intimate Clarke Island wedding.
A lot of times I can tell that I’m going to click with someone right off the bat, and I could tell I’d click with Kat & Seb from the very first email. Kat’s email just exuded such warmth and care, that really extended to their wedding day planning. And then I met them in person and I think I kinda fell in love with them a little bit. Kat rocked up wearing rollers in her hair with a scarf over them, 1950s movie star style, and they were clearly smitten with each other.
We went over all the plans for their day and really, it seemed like the perfect reflection of the two of them. Kat has a sort of old-school beauty that was perfectly complimented by her gorgeous powder blue gown by Sarah Alice Andrews, even the hotel, the QT in Sydney was the perfect choice for a bit of old-school charm (as an aside, the QT hotel is absolutely amazing down to their elevators, which play different songs depending on how many people are in them! That’s the sort of quirky detail I absolutely adore).
And I just realised that this blog post is getting probably a little long, but suffice it to say that everything about Kat & Seb’s day was planned so that it reflected the couple that they are and to make sure that their intimate gathering of family & friends knew that the day was more than just about Kat & Seb, but about all of them coming together.
