They were planning a little anniversary to celebrate their 10-year long relationship. Instead, it turned into their wedding day.
CERES Environment Park Wedding
CERES works as a green little oasis in the middle of the bustling city. As a community park in Brunswick East, Melbourne, it's a place for workshops and courses making you fall in love with nature. However, this Autumn day was all about the love between Arj and Rachelle.
Their wedding day was just as relaxed and beautiful as the two of them. They wanted a wedding day that reflected the two of them as a couple, and a CERES Environment park wedding was just that. It was lush, green and sustainable, and a perfect spot to bring their families and friends. The unplugged ceremony was held under the eucalyptus tree before we headed around the grounds of CERES searching for some great locations for their wedding photos. The low afternoon sun was giving us the perfect backlight.
One of my top tips for planning your wedding day is always to make it personal. You don't need to follow all of the traditions or rules, though make it reflect the two of you. Arj and Rachelle decided to play a little game with their guests. Ever heard of 'writey-drawey-foldey'? Every guest got a piece of paper where they were told to write a sentence about the bride and groom, preferably a memory or an act. The paper goes to the next person who then has to draw the sentence. The paper is then folded for the next person to interpret the drawing and write down what it's all about. This is repeated until it's back home where it all started. A great game for weddings? YES! Why? Scroll down and have a look at all the great laughs it made.
