Erin & Chris tied the knot in an artsy, energetic ceremony in Canada…
“We needed a place that was completely customisable because we wanted to create as many personal details as possible. Our venue was absolutely incredible – they gave us total freedom, and it allowed us to come up with ideas we never thought were possible, like splashing paint across the room and creating multiple hand-painted murals.
We wanted the day to be intensely heartfelt and inclusive and we thought the best way to do that would be to try and bring our family and friends into our world. That meant bright colours and fun bursts of paint that surrounded you on the ceiling and walls. Overgrown floral and paper flowers that almost reach out to touch you, and personal elements for guests to connect with individually were included too. From them crafting our signature cocktail to our friend painting a wall mural, we tried to include our loved ones in the design and experience as much as possible. The colours were there to give you energy and make you have fun — everyone included! We cried a lot that day, especially when we saw the ceremony and reception rooms for the first time.
I never imagined a big wedding day, let alone a big white wedding dress! I was keen for something relaxed with a hippie flair. I felt 100% myself in my dress, meaning that I could be completely focused on my new husband. My makeup was natural, with my hair framed with a floral crown. The overall feel was boho chic. Chris’ look was all built around his bow tie, which he had custom-made using the material from the blazer of his school uniform as he met me in high school! Since the material was navy blue, he had a tuxedo made in dark green to complement it.” – Erin
