Bianca and Carmen, who become engaged just three months after they met, married in front of sixty guests at The Flour Factory in Perth, Western Australia.

THE ENGAGEMENT

We have been together going on three and a bit years and, like a lot of millennials, we swiped right on Tinder.

Our proposal was simply a conversation that lead to a mutual decision to choose marriage as the next step in our relationship. We were only three months into our relationship.

THE VENUE & THEME

We really love the vibe of The Flour Factory. It has a certain country-esque feel and Bianca really loves the country (music and all!). We also loved that we had a blank canvas, which meant we could transform the top floor into whatever we wanted.

The theme of our wedding as I kept telling everyone was ‘classic, elegant and timeless’, this became a running joke with all of our friends. We really wanted to create something very personal that reflected us as a couple. We used a lot of green, white, olive foliage, (and olive oil as bonbonnieres) and linen table clothes. We used quite a bit of rustic wood throughout the setup to give it a warm look and feel.

We made the majority of the décor items so there were quite a few late night crafting sessions, both with friends and wine! We put together the candle holders, place cards, bonbonnieres, stationery (invitations, Save the Dates) and signage. Bianca, being a graphic designer herself, was able to create everything herself – an added bonus.

THE OUTFITS

Our dresses were probably the easiest part of organising our wedding. Bianca’s best friend (Ana) noticed there was a sale on and we thought we might as well get the ball rolling and check it out. It was our first time looking and when all the sales girls (and Ana) started crying we knew our search was complete.

WHAT DOES MARRIAGE MEAN TO YOU BOTH?

Marriage to us means that we are now recognised as equal partners under Australian law and this something we couldn’t be more grateful for. But, on a lighter note, it means saying yes even when you really want to say no (like going to a Shania Twain concert).

YOUR BEST WEDDING ADVICE

  1. Do as much of it as you can yourself
  2. Hit pause during the day and enjoy it as it really does fly by

We are glad we kept the wedding small (60 people) as it meant we could actually have a chat and a dance with everyone. This made the night truly memorable.
