Angie and Mitch spend 24 hours a day/7 days a week together. I don't know many couples who do this and still stay together, but Angie and Mitch have stood the ultimate test. Working in the same office together :)
Enough said. And they've been together for 12 years.....wow! And they told me said they never fight with each other. Not even once.
That blows my mind away!
When planning their wedding, they only had one place in mind to get married, and that was the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney. That was where they had their first date, their first kiss under the biggest Oak tree in the middle of a large expansive well manicured grassy patch.
Mitch even proposed to Angie at the exact same place where they shared that first kiss. It was like fate said to them "Get married in the Botanic Gardens".
They had their wedding ceremony in the Palm House nearby, and walked over to their reception at Kittyhawk. It was my first time at Kittyhawk and I reckon it's a pretty hip and groovy place to have your wedding party. It's not your typical soul less wedding venue with perfect white walls, but a real life working groovy bar that serves really great food and even better cocktails. I can't think of a better 1-2 punch than that.
Angie and Mitch's wedding was not immune to the Coronavirus, infact they had to postpone their wedding to a year later due to it. But they chose to do it exactly 1 year to the original date and that all worked out fine in the end and all of the guests they had in their original guest list could still come except for the poor buggers living in Melbourne (only 1) couldn't make it, so they did a zoom session just so they could include her....
Both Angie and Mitch stayed at the Intercontinental Sydney which is only a stone throw's away from the garden, making it really convenient for all of us to get to the wedding by foot. If you're planning a wedding, that's one thing to think about is how far your accommodation is from your venue! If you can make it within 5 mins walk, you're winning and grinning :)
The wedding ceremony was held in the Palm House in the Royal Botanic Gardens, a really lovely rustic old greenhouse that's hot as hell in summer since it is a greenhouse after all, but for spring and autumn weddings it's just lovely.
We spent the rest of the afternoon goofing around in the gardens for photos in the succulent cactus garden which is pretty hipster these days, before walking to Kittyhawk to start the party. The night was filled with a lot of great food, company and friends and we all danced the night away to ABBA and 80s classics. Loved this wedding :)
