Amanda loves Milan | Fancy Fantasy Festival Wedding

DSC_9300Every now and then I receive a wedding into my inbox that’s almost indescribable in its uniqueness. However, since it’s my job, I’ll give it a go. Amanda and Milan’s wedding is like an out-of-this-world gathering of forest nymphs. It’s like Fern Gully-meets-Lord of the Rings: The Wedding.

The couple, whose whole hearts are exquisitely exposed in their wedding day album, met at a festival, and so their wedding was a festival style – right across the road from where they first met! Their family and friends all came to the party in their fanciest fantasy wear, making for the best dressed group of wedding-goers I’ve ever seen.

The bride donned a dress she found on Facebook Marketplace and had her sister-in-law revamp it, while the groom made and hand painted his entire outfit, including his crown.

This wedding day is pure magic. Just see for yourself, and have a read of the bride’s story in her own words.

How We Met

I saw the back of Milan across a field at a small festival and instantly knew that I was going to marry him. Shortly after meeting, it was love at first sight. We didn’t really even date, it was just perfect fit from day dot!

The Proposal

We woke up early one morning and Milan just rolled over and asked, “Will you marry me?” It was an instant already yes!
