In 2010, during Wren’s working holiday in London, she met Sam at a house party. Soon after though, Sam moved to Geneva to work on the Hydrogen Colider, and Wren had to move back home to Australia.

After a year of long-long-distance, they knew they had something they didn’t want to let go; So Wren met up with Sam in London to sign the registry and moved to Geneva to start a new life. “We promised ourselves that if everything was as amazing as we thought it would be, we’d get married properly, in front of all our loved ones. So we did – on the same date five years later.”

“With family scattered all over the globe – England, Australia, America, Germany – it made sense to pick neutral ground so we all had to travel. It was a great excuse for a family holiday, and Portugal is the perfect place – guaranteed warm weather in stunning surroundings

Our wedding day was really intimate and social; we had only 35 people present including ourselves and our photographers, so it felt like a big family party!

We were so thrilled to have the whole family together, for the first time in years and years – that’s really what made it so special for us. The whole day was about those nearest and dearest – from having my dad walk me down the aisle, to having my father in  law conduct the ceremony; having my sister and sister in law as my bridesmaids, and my baby brother as our ring bearer. Everyone was involved in some way and it was awesome.

Our venue for the whole day was the Yellow House; we found it via AirBnB. We wanted somewhere that could accommodate not just a ceremony and reception, but our families for the week around the wedding too – all 14 of us! “

The wedding was fun of DIY projects and vintage touches, pieces of furniture and knick knacks you’d find in your grandmothers’ place for a homely, comfy, relaxed feel.

The ceremony was held in the backyard on the basketball court, all decked out with leafy foliage and flowers. The BBQ reception was a laid back and beautiful picnic table with an eclectic mix of flowers, succulents, vintage espresso / tea cups and ferry lights.
