Did you DIY?
Yes! We did a lot of DIY to try cut down our budget and also to make it feel just like we wanted to. We made things like the bridesmaids bouquets, table decorations, favours, signs, deserts and backdrop. The list could go on!
Do you have any tricks or tips for engaged couples?
Your wedding is just a day, it’s about a marriage too! Try not to stress on the small things. And Rico says, “extra chocolate helps!”
What do you love most about being married?
We didn’t live with each other before we were married, so living together has been something we love!
Where did we go for honeymoon?
Queenstown, New Zealand. It was a place we had heard so much about, it was beautiful and romantic.
