An ocean-side wed­ding was the per­fect fit for this happy, loved-up cou­ple

Cosmopolitan Bride (Australia) - - JUST MARRIED -

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.
