Morgan + Ryan: love in bloom


“Ryan proposed to me during a surprise trip to Melbourne one weekend – I thought I was going to buy new runners! He surprised me with a beautiful rose gold band, got down one one knee and proposed to my favourite song ‘Into My Arms’ by Nick Cave. The next day he took me to Paul Bram and we had an Art Deco ring made – it’s the most beautiful piece of jewellery that I own.”

When Ryan and Morgan first met however, Morgan was incredibly sick with Crohns Disease – an auto immune disease. With many trips in and out of hospital, Morgan thought “if he can stay with me through all of this, he is an absolute keeper.” And so the two grew together, in life and love.

Themed “Love in Bloom”, the couple’s wedding was a colourful mix of plum florals, mismatching dresses, beautiful brass goblet and gold foiled stationery. Oakdene provided the perfect venue for the two, full of quirk, artwork, sculpture and colour that embodied both Morgan and Ryan’s personalities.The night even featured a quirky rap from their two best friends.
