A blog full of love and colour today with Camille and Glen’s fun festival wedding! It’s an outdoor delight with a marquee reception, rustic details and a dinosaur cake topper. Here we catch up with the couple themselves who tell us all about their love story from first meet to first wed, and how they created their fun festival wedding that was just perfect for the two of them…
How did you Camille meet?
“We met online… not on Tinder! Camille’s profile picture included a dinosaur, which ended up being one of the themes in our wedding. Glenn loved how different it was and started chatting about difficulties and im-practicalities of pooper and scoopering after such a large pet. Camille thought it was a gusty move to talk about…poo … so soon, so after many hours chatting and joking we went for a coffee date at a local café. The coffee date turned into lunch and would have turned into dinner if we both didn’t have other obligations.”
How did he propose?
“We went for a bush walk in our favourite spot and while I was distracted by baby birds, he started rustling loudly in his pocket for something. I turned around and said in an annoyed voice “What have you got in your pocket?”. He grinned and pulled a ring out of a plastic bag, got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife.”
What do you love most about your partner?
“My first impression of Glenn… It was like meeting a “Steve Irwin” like character and I struggled to believe anyone could be that nice. I love how kind hearted and helpful Glenn is and I’m so appreciative of our relationship and admire how passionate Glenn is of his career and family. He has helped me to be braver than I ever thought I could be”.
Glen said… “I love that everyday with Camille is an adventure. I admire that our personalities are so complimentary and I enjoy seeing Camille live life in the moment, she makes me feel alive!”
“We both support each other through the hard times and make time for fun.
“I didn’t want to try the gown on, and my bridesmaids made me. I then didn’t want to ever take it off!”
What sort of style did you envision for your wedding day?
“A colorful festival feel, nice and relaxed but with lots of fun.”
What was your favourite moment from the day?
“Coming back from taking photos, the sun had just gone down and as we were approaching the reception listening to the sounds of our guests laughing and talking. At this moment we were surrounded by fireflies and had an amazing moment together reveling in the magic of our wedding day.”
“So many! We poured our own creativity into every detail to produce a colorful, whimsical, festival feel wedding. We didn’t do a seated dinner, we took our couches (in fact most of our furniture) as well as some others and used elements we had found or created in the months before. The bride (a former florist did her own bouquet and helped the bridesmaids create their own. The bride made the wedding archway with silk flowers ahead of time.”
Words of Wisdom
“Don’t sweat the small stuff. It’s easy to get carried away and decide you really need this or that but on the day all that matters is the love you share with your partner.”
“We have so many special memories from our wedding. It was a day filled with emotions and laughter. A truly magical day.”
