Enchanting Garden Wedding: Kylie + Nick


Kylie and Nick threw ‘standard’ to the wind the day that they left Australia to live in England: the start of a new adventure together. Living in London meant that every few weeks the couple would explore a new European city together. So it was in Budapest early one Saturday morning that Nick dropped to his knee and proposed to Kylie on quiet walk to Fisherman’s Bastion to catch a great view of the city. They spent the rest of their day being pampered at the Szechenyi Thermal Baths and drinking mulled wine at the Christmas Markets before winding up back in Fisherman’s Bastion for a splendid dinner.

Planning a wedding together was another of many firsts for the couple. After all, Nick taught Kylie how to ride a bike and how to swim. It was also with Nick that Kylie went camping for the first time while trekking Machu Picchu. And their move to London was the first time Kylie had ever moved out of home.

So it should come as no surprise that their wedding day schedule was hardly traditional either. Though some say it’s bad luck for a bride and groom to see each other before the ceremony, Kylie and Nick flipped the traditional timetable of their wedding day around. They had their first look, photos, and then the ceremony at 5pm.

“We arranged for our ‘first look’ to be at Mount Stromlo Observatory in Canberra where Nick was made to eagerly await my arrival. Having this intimate moment together was something I will remember for the rest of my life! The emotion was truly immense.”

Despite thousands of kilometres separating the couple in England from their wedding destination in Canberra, Australia, the pair managed to pull off an elegant, rustic wedding. But all of the extra effort was worth it!

“The hanging lights alone took days to manufacture. Wiring 21 individual Edison Bulbs to 8 hanging planks of wood wasn’t easy, however the final product was breathtaking and it made the marquee our very own enchanted forest.”
