Flashback to early March 2020. Before the threat of COVID-19 caused mass shutdowns and bans on large gatherings, Lia & Robbie pushed ahead with their celebrations, knowing full-well that this could be the last time they’d get to see all their loved ones for many months.
Armed with hand sanitiser, a positive attitude, and the most beautiful Excel Spreadsheet I’ve ever seen, these two lovers chose to stand in front of 80 of their friends and family to declare their lifelong commitment to each other. In my books, this is pretty much as good as it gets.
Leichhardt Town Hall was the perfect setting for this rainy day. Lia’s choir friend travelled from all corners of Australia to perform a stellar selection of songs (arranged by Lia herself!). Lia’s unique ensemble was handmade by the maid of honour, with dozens of other touches created by this wild team of creatives.
In this time of unprecedented stress and anxiety, my hope is these photos remind you that love is well and truly alive, and something worth celebrating. For those waiting for things to calm down in order to get married, let me assure you that the wait will be worth it.
