MARIKO + TREVOR
An ocean-side wedding was the perfect fit for this happy, loved-up couple
This bride’s morning started with her bridesmaids – one of whom had flown all the way from London the day before – and brekkie! After, Mariko had a lovely, relaxed morning getting ready, and in no time at all the main event had arrived. The ceremony took place at twilight, just as Mariko had planned, and the waterfront venue was the perfect place to say “I do”. Then, at the reception, guests were treated to a stunning sunset over the ocean… as well as a dramatic thunderstorm! The rest of the day was a ton of fun, with hilarious speeches, delicious food and a photo booth for everyone to get wild in.
