Georgie and Jake’s urban wedding day was the non-traditional affair they always hoped for. They made it their own at The Studio, a blank canvas venue with an all white facade that made their florals by The Wilds really pop. They walked down the aisle together and their ceremony was personalised with their own vows. Their guests dined on burgers and french fries from a food truck and their MC’s graced the crowd by performing the Monica and Ross dance routine from Friends. Unforgettable. Captured by Blaise from Blaise Bell Photography, read on to learn more about this couple’s approach to a joyful, romantic celebration.

How did you both meet? We met over 10 years ago at a mutual friends birthday party. Turns out, we actually had a lot of mutual friends but had never crossed paths until this night – the rest is history.

The proposal: Jake proposed to me on the rocks at our local beach in Dee Why one afternoon. It was an understated and intimate moment around the corner from our first home together. We then (of course) partied the night away with our closest friends and family who dropped everything to be there with us with a couple of hours notice.

The venue: We knew we wanted something different – so we searched for a unique urban style venue that would allow us to create the wedding of our dreams. The Studio is a family-run photography studio in Rosebery, nestled between Three Blue Ducks and Archie Rose. It was exactly what we wanted!

Wedding vibe: Urban Romance. We wanted to focus on all the best parts of a wedding – the love, the food, the drinks and the dancing. Our guests feasted on burgers and fries from a food truck, drank lots of good wine and danced the night away.

Traditions: adopted, adapted or ditched? We went the non-traditional route and have absolutely no regrets. Jake and I got ready and walked down the aisle together. We had a bridal party but they wore what they wanted and didn’t stand with us during the ceremony. We wrote our own vows, and opted for no cake and no sit down meal.

The outfits:I wore the Grace dress and Opera train by Karen Willis Holmes, paired with a statement earring from Black & Bloom. I wanted my look to be romantic and modern. Jake wore a classic black MJ Bale suit with a bow tie. We both felt very special.

Standout vendors: We got so lucky and had some of the best vendors, but in particular:

Blaise Bell, our photographer – We had so much fun with Blaise and he truly made us feel at ease throughout the day. He is amazing at what he does, and the photos reflect the happiest moments for us.

The Wilds, our florist – Kitty really brought our vision to life. With the venue being a blank canvas, we wanted our flowers to be a work of art. The pink hues with the pop of red from the Nina roses still makes me swoon.

Claire Belford, our celebrant – we had a lot of requests for the ceremony as we wanted it to be as authentically us as possible. Claire really set the tone for the day, sharing our story exactly how we imagined.

Soundtrack:

Aisle song: Wild Love (Acoustic), James Bay

Recessional track: Kiss Me, Sixpence None The Richer

First dance: Everything, Michael Bublé

Party-starter: Bohemian Rhapsody, Queen

I’ll always remember: We’ll never forget our joint MCs doing the Monica and Ross dance routine from Friends. Unbelievable.

Word of wedding wisdom: You don’t have do the norm, create a day that feels like you and is centered around what matters the most to you both. Also, pack sneakers for the dance floor… absolute game changer.

The future: Making more memories with my best friend – and celebrating even the small moments together.
