It is very rare these days to hear of couple’s marrying in Sydney with just a thousand bucks in their pocket. There are many things to book and items to buy for the big day including finding someone who will do the wedding photography in Sydney because lasting memories through photographs is considered a treasure for many couples. This is not the case for Emilyrose Fitzpatrick who used to live in Sydney. The bride was already residing in Glasgow when she got engaged. It was only last year that she, along with husband Rory, celebrated their marriage.
The most surprising detail is that they were planning to elope at first but changed their mind as soon as the bride’s parents told her that they are coming to visit her. This is when she started planning for her wedding day, not even four months into the exact date they have chosen.
According to Emilyrose, they are not planning to spend a lot for their wedding day because they know they will be able to enjoy the celebration without having to empty their pockets. In the end, the bride managed to spend only £1000 for their wedding day or approximately equal to €1,140.
The bride did not have much time on her hands and she had to do the planning alone most of the time because her husband was working as restaurant manager. She admitted that it was a challenge for her to plan everything with such a small budget but they are determined not to go over it.
She gushed that her wedding day was the perfect day of all and she will not trade it for anything.
Many would be asking by now? How did she manage to pull it off? Not to mention the fact that they invited 100 guests to their wedding ceremony.
As for her dress, though she was looking for something affordable, she was very happy that she was able to spend her wedding day in a dress that she loved which costs her only £60. Affordable bridal brands are the rage nowadays and one can find anything trendy these days without having to spend thousands.
As for her flowers, she did not go to a professional florist but rather bought everything on her own and made her own decorations. She made the bouquet, headpiece as well as two corsages.
A bride in Australia might have hire a full time individual to do the wedding photography in Sydney but it is not the case with Emilyrose as they decided to hire the photographer for two hours only during the ceremony and every guest was freely able to photograph during the reception using their own cameras and smartphones.
