We met the stunning couple Issy & Harry approx. 3 months out from their wedding date, yep that's right, 3 months before they were due to get married and let's just say it's pretty much the best 3 months we've had working in the industry and planning with such a short amount of time. Issy & Harry can best be described as a laid back couple who have an uber amount of respect for themselves, their families and for everyone else that was included in the planning of their big day, and also their friends & extended family. With that setting the tone, the planning and the day itself goes down as one of our favourite weddings we have ever had the pleasure to be a part of. Issy & Harry run their own race, have their own style & at the end of the day, just wanted to create an epic party for their nearest & dearest.
With tradition thrown out the window, we watched Issy & Harry walk themselves down the aisle to be married. They had bridal party photos before the wedding, so they could spend as much time with their friends & families as possible as soon as the reception kicked off, and they requested their guests wear all white....the photos prove how good this turned out! Issy & Harry partied well into the night, possibly even the next day..........and the only devastating thing about the next day was that all of the planning was over and our withdrawals from texting & calling Issy EVERY day for the last 3 months were kicking in big time.......serious separation anxiety took place!!!!!!
A special mention goes out to Harry's parents Toni & Grant, who worked day & night to make their home a truly stunning backdrop for the day. They let us bump-in & out at crazy hours of the night & day and were so accommodating, we literally could not have done it without them. And what other mum & dad would let you turn their car port into a fully decked out bar painted all white with double opening doors and exposed beams & shelving........Interior Designer / Wedding Stylists dream right there! We would also love to thank all of our local suppliers & vendors who came onboard to play a part in the day (check them out in our vendor list below).
To a couple that holds a special place in the Poco Uno family, we wish you all the love in the world and look forward to regular Alma Mexican catch ups whilst sipping Gin & Tonic's. So much love & so much respect, big love from Ash & the Poco Uno Crew xx
