Meet Dani and Sean, peeps. These two are sweetness incarnate. Sean proposed on the tenth anniversary of their first kiss with a Queensland sapphire that reminded him of his beaut future brides eyes. The cuteness continues with Sean wearing a piece of fabric from Dani’s dress as a pocket square. Soz, but this duo are taking out most adorbs couple award. No arguments. Now scroll down for Katie Harmsworth’s brill shots…

THE VIBE “Once we’d found Glasshaus, we really liked the feeling of having plants and nature be part of our vision. So as for dress code, we told our guests, “Think linen suits and flowy dresses. We are getting married in a nursery after all!”. Sean also tied that theme into the invitation, which he designed and hand-drew himself with inspiration from botanical photography and illustrations. The invitation also featured as a sort of welcome sign at the front of each venue.”

FAVOURITE DETAILS “The bouquet was outstanding [Glashaus]. We saw a lot of photos online where brides had really large bouquets, and I always thought to myself ‘It’s huge and it’s hiding your dress in all the photos!’. So I wanted something small enough that it didn’t get in the way of the dress and I wanted it to have plants that were native to the land. Sean’s buttonhole flowers were made to match my bouquet and they were really pretty and distinct too. He loved the gum-nut!”

DIY… “Sean’s mum, Jan, made the insane award-worthy cake and my mum, Elizabeth, rejuvenated two antique chairs (coincidentally bought from Glasshaus’ scrap sale a few months prior) which were used at the ceremony for the signing.”

FAVOURITE MOMENT “Leading up to the wedding, Wendy, our celebrant had given us some homework to do, including a questionnaire that Sean and I had to fill out and keep separate from each other. One of the questions was about how we first met. Sean said that the first time we met was in high-school, in Chinese class. But my story for how we met was different. We actually met a few months before that, at a mutual friend’s house party. Late in the night, I found Sean wasted out the front of the house (covered in sick!) but he couldn’t remember anything about that night! It was one of my favourite parts of the day when Wendy read out these lovely, revealing and hilarious stories that gave our guests a beautiful, two-sided glimpse into our loving and wonderful relationship.”

WE’RE GLAD WE “We’re really glad we didn’t feel compelled to have any additional readings at the ceremony just because of tradition. The only reading we had was a beautiful reading by Sean’s niece, Rose, who wanted to surprise us with one of her choices. She chose to read a poem by Dr Seuss called “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” and it was beautiful.”
