It’s very rare that I am at a loss for words (just ask Mahatia); but I am truly finding it hard to find the right words to thank the absolutely incredible team of vendors that selflessly and lovingly donated their epic talents to our wedding extravaganza last night. It’s easy to forget sometimes that humans like these still exist, but last night was proof. They are some of the best in the business; utterly professional and amazingly great at what they do, and each and every one of them supported us with the widest of open arms, as if we were old friends. We had such an incredible day and night yesterday, it was surreal, magical and wonderful. Thank you all, a million times over xx 📷 @christianmarcphotography • @ferdydurkebar @thealtarelectric @christianmarcphotography @katemakeupart @gingerandgoldbridal @goodgraceandhumour @gooddayrentals_vintage @fidelandsarah @lovekittypimms @notelmelbourne @lunar_red_films @fatandskinnycatering @jamladyjam
