Love is the Ultimate Outlaw – Our Kiama Wedding

One month ago I got hitched to my long haired lover from Liverpool. The big day was a goddamn joyful explosion of love, colour, wine and tunes on a property on the edge of Kiama on the South Coast. As anyone who has been married would know, there are a mind-boggling amount of decisions that go into tying the knot. I will never underestimate that the single best one is obviously saying ‘YES’ in the first place (love you millions babe!). I’m also over the moon that Australia said YES to marriage equality this week! Everyone deserves the right to marry whoever they wish!

Another was the choice of my bangin’ bridesmaids that were there through all the other steps and I couldn’t have made this wedding such a hit without my beloved bombshells.  Also, how hot do they look in these jewel-toned dresses?!

Putting the spunky artist groom Phillip Marsden in charge of all things stationary and signage will be making couples jealous AF for years to come (unfortunately not pictured – will post when we get some of those photos). I won’t go on too much, as at the bottom of this post I have a full list of vendors and info on the dress and all that business, but I do need to give big ups to Bush Bank for providing the gorgeous setting, Jasmine Christie for being the flower magician of my dreams, Ben Ager for putting all celebrants that ever pronounced a couple wed to shame, and the kick-arse camera-wielding maestros Ellen and Phu of Folk + Follow, whose artful images speak for themselves below.

“Love is the ultimate outlaw.

It just won’t adhere to any rules. The most any of us can do is to sign on as its accomplice. Instead of vowing to honor and obey, maybe we should swear to aid and abet. That would mean that security is out of the question. The words “make” and “stay” become inappropriate. My love for you has no strings attached. I love you for free.”

– Tom Robbins, Still Life with Woodpecker
