As two of the more unique members of our families, we decided to look at elements of a traditional wedding and add our own untraditional touches. In the end everyone agreed, the day was in every way, perfectly us. Starting in a plant nursery and ending in an underground nightclub, it was perfect.
How did you first meet?
On a girls night out and a couple of lemonades in, I left the girls to ask the venue manager of the nightclub for a job. After the interview the next evening, we decided to kick on and the next thing we knew, it was 3am in chinatown. By the time I made it home, he had asked for a second round interview. Two weeks after that, we were dating and agreed I needed to find employment elsewhere.
