There is no doubt that this year has been a topsy turvy one but if there is one thing we have learnt, it is that love conquers all. Here at HM we have seen a greater variety of weddings than ever before with a heap of socially distanced soirees and snazzy elopements thrown in the mix. Carly & Todd’s Sydney elopement, Rachel & Maitland’s Melbourne elopement and Laura & Anthony’s Sydney wedding are just a few prime examples you might want to glean some serious COVID wedding inspo from (if you haven’t already!)

As we adjust to the new normal, we applaud the industry and couples all over the world for continuing to celebrate their love in whatever way seems most appropriate to them. As they say, the show must go on!

Our good mates over at Audley Dance Hall whole heartedly agree and have put together something special for couples on the hunt for inspiration and keen to push on. “This small and intimate celebration at Audley Dance Hall may look slightly different but with an amazing team of vendors in your corner this is absolutely possible. The feels are the same, the end goal is the same, it’s time to get on with it”, says Audley on their inspiration behind the shoot.

The wedding venue veterans suggest chatting with your vendors about how to get the most out of your day. “Whether it be comedians, magicians, exciting table designs (your guests won’t want to leave their seats!), elopements, outside receptions, amazing musicians, trivia, downsizing guest numbers to be just your nearest and dearest- talk to us about how we can help you.”

As restrictions slowly ease, the good folk at Audley leave us with a sound word of advice. “Don’t focus on what you can’t do, focus on what you can as the possibilities are unique and endless. Make it your own kind of special.” Cheers to that! Now, get scrolling for HM fave Kristie Carrick’s beaut captures…
