An Australian Micro-Wedding with an Opera House Photo Session

November 5, 2021

Paul and Amanda's wedding, through Amanda's words:

After being together eight years, Paul finally proposed! We were meant to get married last year.

The plan was to hold our ceremony as we did and then hop on a plane the next day and fly over to Ireland to host our reception. My husband is Irish and we have many family and friends who were going to celebrate in Australia with us. Like many couples, we postponed our wedding day and re-planned.

The morning of our wedding day it rained, but like magic the clouds had cleared by lunchtime. I was able to spend the morning with my parents who I hadn't seen in just over a year due to state border closures. To have my dad walk me down the aisle was one on my "must" list and such a special moment captured in our photos.

When I arrived at the ceremony venue, I was surprised to see that everyone was in the shade but it seems the sun hid behind the buildings ensuring everyone was able to see and not feel too sweaty in the daytime sun. Our favorite photos and one of the best decisions we made was to be dropped at the Opera House for photos.

There was a big concert on - a huge oversight from me. But we managed a few beautiful photos just on our phones... nothing fancy.

I loved the fact that COVID allowed my family to join us from interstate. It was very touch and go for a while. My absolute favorite part of the day was my husband saying he had the best day of his life and recognizing all the planning that went into this special day.

A lot of what we did was of our own planning or buying such as decorations for the tables, cake boxes and stationary design. This kept costs down, but also ensured we got what we wanted. At the reception we had live music organized by good friends of ours, and a photo booth as our wedding favors.

Our thoughts was to keep the day simple but enjoyable. It also helps that I love planning and organizing, so this was actually an enjoyable process.

To then sit down and be able to watch the videos along with reading all the comments left from all around the world on Lovecast, and knowing that many guests were there but just in their own homes was really special.

We also have videos to show our children when they grow up!
