Lyndsy + Choy

Tell us a little about yourselves!

We were junior high school classmates in China. I came to Australia in 2014. We got back in touch with each other when I went back to China during semester break. Choy came to Australia for me in 2020. He proposed to me in nature - with just two of us. It was exact the proposal that I was dreamed of. Now we live with two fur kids - Soju and Hana. They attended our wedding too!

Why did you decide to get married where you did?

Kiama is our favourite town that we have visited so many times. We wanted to share our special moments with our friends and families at the most memorable place - Greyleigh Kiama.

How many guests did you have?

We wanted to keep the wedding small and intimate with only 30 guests.

Tell us about your outfits.

I purchased my wedding gown from Murashka. I loved its timeless and elegant look. The silk was so soft and light, which allowed me to move freely. I loved wearing it running around on the grass and enjoying our elopement.

Choy wanted a simple and classic look. We found the sand linen suit from Gibson The colour was so natural and it blended into our ceremony place.

What was the most important aspect for you, in terms of planning your wedding?

I was striving to capture the intimate and important details for my wedding. The day was divine for all the senses. I enjoyed the journey of selecting all the details. The colours that I chose for my wedding mood board were green, white, brown and a little bit of black as the highlight.

The flowers, candles, vow cards, welcome sign, linen menu, ribbons and ceramics were the key components. The bespoke linen menus with guests’ names really made our guests immersed in the event and created the experience that made our guests feel part of the whole experience. Our vow cards were handmade with my handwritten initials (C&L). All the components were chosen intentionally and they worked together to contribute to the holistic design of our wedding.

Were there any elements that were important for you to incorporate?

Definitely ribbons! I went to different material stores and searched through all kinds of ribbons and found the silk black ribbons that I think they can add more texture to my wedding. Ribbons can be very versatile. I came up with the idea of using the black ribbons to tie my linen welcome sign on the tree at the ceremony place. I love how the ribbons and the linen welcome sign suspended from the branches and floated in the wind. Ribbons were also used to tie the vegetables and flowers from the centrepieces on the tabletop. It promoted consistency and brought the whole design together.

Any tips for couples getting married?

My advice would be to choose the colours for your wedding as a starting point. Colour is the building block for designing a wedding. I think it’s so important as it sets the emotion, tone and atmosphere.

Are there any vendors that you would like to tell us a little more about?

I loved the documentary style of our photographer, Emotion + Math. Isla captured all the precious moments. When I look at the photos from our wedding, these photos truly tell the story and bring us back to the moments. My florist Fritillerie brought our dream wedding into reality. I absolutely love the unusual flowers she used. The elements such as vegetables and fruits that she added into our wedding were so unique. Michelle from Greyleigh Kiama was incredibly organised and genuinely kind-hearted. She ensured that every detail of our wedding was taken care of with professionalism.
