MARGARET RIVER, AUSTRALIA
Tell us a little about yourselves.
Clinton and Felipe are a multicultural couple, Clinton from Australia and Felipe from Colombia. We are really different in our personalities and the duties that we love to do. But we love each other because of these differences.
We have been together for three years; a friend introduced us to each other, and after a couple of months, we started to date.
Tell us about the proposal.
The proposal was on our first Anniversary 7th December. We were on a hike at John Forrest National Park, where Clinton proposed to Felipe at the Eagle view.
Tell us about your wedding venue.
The winery WISE was selected because it has beautiful lookouts and good rates. We wanted somewhere that we could see the hills, and at the same time, the ocean and the WISE was perfect.
Our inspiration was because we both feel most at peace with the beach and bush at our feet. The theme was Blanco attire, Australian Beach meets bush minimalistic. With candle lighting and native centerpieces with candles for table settings. The meaning behind the white color was peace. The candles’ lighting celebrates a special tradition in Colombian which we incorporated into our wedding as every guest got to light a candle and make a wish on our special day.
Most of our wedding was DIY. From the Arch which Clinton and his best man Paul made. To the center table setting, which his sister Rachel and family collected the foliage for that morning. Clinton put numerous hours into our candlelight display, setting the candles in the vases and individually putting each guest’s names on.
We want the details of the wedding day.
It was a stressful day with almost all our family and friends trying to have everyone and everything on time. To be on time and walk simultaneously to reach the ceremony with our Mothers from the beach’s opposite sides.
Our Favorite moment was when we were in front of everyone at our ceremony on the beach- declaring our love. When we finished our vows, the ocean swept over our feet at that exact moment. It was magical, and of course, our photoshoot and helicopter flight down the coast to arrive at our reception to see all our family and friends waiting. It was amazing!
Marriage is a step to live your life with the right person who understands you and to share the best and worst moments together.
