Wedding: Sarah & Kelly

From Sarah: Kelly and I met four and a half years ago, and we were the quintessential “Uhaul” couple. Let’s just say, our first date lasted four days! We feel incredibly fortunate to have experienced the wedding of our dreams, surrounded by our friends and family in the most gorgeous place where I grew up. The entire weekend was perfect; we wanted everything to be low-key and comfortable. We frequently host people in our home and wanted to capture that feeling of hospitality. We were very purposeful in everything we chose to do (and all the wedding “rules” we chose not to follow!). I also grew up Jewish, and tradition is very important to both Kelly and me, so we wrote the entire ceremony together, adapting the customs to make it our own. It means the world to us that we had the opportunity to celebrate our love with such an amazingly supportive community.

We know we’re a little late to this party, but here are some of our favorite Australian LBTQ+ weddings in celebration of the historic “yes” vote for marriage equality! We are so happy for all our Aussie brides & brooms—and hope this good news provides a boost to all those fighting around the world for justice for queer folks!

Wedding: Emily & Hayley

From Emily: My wife and I got married just over 2 years ago at a gorgeous historic building called The Rose Room in downtown Boise, Idaho. We also recently celebrated 6 years together and have a four legged corgi-lab daughter named Bea. We really never thought we’d be able to get married (especially in Idaho), but 10 days after marriage equality finally graced us with its presence in October 2014, we were engaged!

I (Emily) am an artist focusing on painting, drawing and mixed media. My wife Hayley is an amazing cook and feeds me all the good food! I am a vegetarian and Hayley is not, but she is so kind and graciously cooks us vegetarian dinners on the daily. So when we go out to eat, that’s usually when she takes the opportunity to get her bacon fix. We have a very supportive and wonderful family and friend group. Most of them have kiddos and we pride ourselves on being fun aunties and then we just go home to our four-legged kiddo. We are big fans of the show Parks and Recreation and watch that on repeat. Hayley loves football and Emily does not… So it’s the perfect time for Emily to hop in her art studio and Hayley to get her football on.

We are grateful for those before us who helped champion our rights as wife and wife. Thank you for sharing our story and I hope anyone reading this, no matter where they live, no matter where they’re from, knows they are loved and deserve a life where they get to be true to themselves and live their best life, however that may look.

Wedding: Lisa & Marina

Today we’re thrilled to bring you an award-winning LBTQ wedding! Lisa and Marina’s wedding recently won a Belief Award, a prestigious international award for wedding planners. The Belief Award team reached out to us to share the couple’s story:

This was the wedding of two Muscovites. In Russia, same-sex marriage is not allowed; however, it was very important for the brides to be registered and recognized officially. Lisa and Marina chose to be married in Portugal.

Lisa and Marina met occasionally in Berlin, and this city marked their lives forever. Traveling is one of the favorite activities of the couple. So, one day they came to Portugal, the country of great travelers, to make the most important decision of their relationship.

The main idea for the decor came from rustic chic. One of the most important and even crucial elements turned out to be the wedding bouquet. The objective in some ways was to reproduce the old master paintings using David Austin roses. 

It was quite emotional to make this alliance happen. Overall, they had a cozy party for 15 people who enjoyed incredibly tasty catering.

Wedding: Carole & Louise

From Carole & Louise’s photographer: Carole & Louise had a relaxed barn wedding in the UK. The day was set in the rolling countryside. They had a bright colour scheme, with orange details and flowers. Both brides wore white trousers and tops—the typical princess wedding dress wasn’t for them. Very in keeping with the relaxed vibe of the day, focus was on friends, family, and good food.
