Alice & Vincent
A big day full of music, dancing and romance suited this cool couple to a tee
After finding the perfect venue to say “I do”, Alice took it as a sign that one of the only dates left was her late nan’s birthday, who was later also honoured on the day with a candle-lighting ceremony. Once Alice and Vincent had tied the knot, the reception kicked off with a flash mob dance. The performances didn’t stop there, with the bride’s mum and aunties singing while her dad played piano for the newlyweds’ first dance. And, since they’d flown in from London for their big day, the couple made the most of their time with loved ones by hiring a whole retreat for everyone to enjoy together, so the festivities could continue all weekend.
