You would think the most stressful parts of organising a wedding would be ill dress fittings, bad floral arangements or getting those invites out on time. However for Gabby and Julio, leaving Melbourne proved the most challenging. Their flight was delayed (and then cancelled). They sat defiantly at Melbourne airport for 24 hours (then miraculously squeezed onto another flight). The plane finally arrived (at 5am in the morning). And they were in Fiji!!! (but their luggage was in Brisbane – it arrived only a few hours before the wedding).
Luckily, the hitches ended there, and what came after proceeded without a single slip.
The best thing about an international wedding (besides feeling like you’re in the movie Mama Mia!)? The chance to indulge in what I like to call a wedding ‘festival’. Think endless days of eating like it’s Christmas, drinking fancy cocktails with mini umbrellas by the pool, and storing up a years worth of Vitamin D with your nearest and dearest. No need for designated drivers or missing a chance to speak to your Auntie Jo before everyone is herded out of the venue at 11pm sharp…because everyone meets up for buffet breakfast the next day and it starts all over again.
A wedding which spills over into a holiday. Everyone should have them. Can we come?
Love Katie xo
