A day that truly represented them!
It all began in Sydney, six years ago. Anni had made the trek from Finland to visit family and Josh was in Australia on a working visa from the UK and they both just happened to happen the same little app downloaded on their phones. Of course they immediately hit it off and decided very early on that living in different countries and the joys of visas wasn’t going to keep them apart! … spoiler alert – it didn’t!!
Anni and Josh had originally planned to tie the knot in Finland with a huge party. That was until Covid came to town and pushed that dream much further into the future. Instead of waiting indefinitely to say their vows, they started to dream up a new plan…
Cue their EPIC CLIFF EDGE ELOPEMENT IN THE ROYAL NATIONAL PARK!!! With just three friends to witness, myself and their wonderful celebrant Jess, they hitched themselves together for life in one of the most personal ways I have ever seen. There was happy tears, champagne, groovy tunes, a picnic with Finnish chocolate, whale watching, woodfire pizza, a stroll through the streets of Newtown and gelato from their local haunt! This may have been a small celebration but it is one that will have an everlasting impact on me.
