The beautiful bride in this post is my gorgeous cousin Marissa. Her Dad and my Mum are twins, and we grew up together like sisters.
Marissa and (her now husband, obvs!) Jon married in 2010, and even though we are launching The Wedding Journal four years post-nuptials, I wanted to feature Riss as the first SW BRIDE.
The ceremony was held in Sydney at Lion Gate Lodge in the Royal Botanic Gardens – and it was stunning! Jon and Riss married in the gardens and the reception was on site, so the party kicked off straight away. Vows were exchanged just before a light rain started to fall, and the paper parasols that were provided for the guests in case of harsh sun became shelter from the sun-shower. The rain provided beautiful lighting for the photos (I think you will agree from the images below).

Marissa wore the ‘Olivia’s Amore’ Earrings, by SAMANTHA WILLS. This style is no longer available, but you can shop similar in our Bridal Boutique.
Did you or your bridesmaids wear SAMANTHAWILLS on your special day? If you are interested in having your wedding featured on The Wedding Journal, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with 10-15 of your favorite wedding photos. Due to the amount we receive, we cannot feature all submissions. Should your submission be chosen, we will contact you to complete an email interview of all the favorite parts of your day – we look forward to hearing from you (and congratulations on your recent wedding!).
