Classic Summer Vintage at Ravensthorpe

Krystyn & Mark Fisher • 2nd April 2010

Although they first met as teenagers, Krystyn and Mark didn’t date until several years later. Then, after two years together, Mark was offered a place at an American university to play rugby union and the couple went their separate ways. A year later while Krystyn was midway through a trip around the world, they met briefly in the UK and Mark surprised her with tickets to Dublin for her 21st birthday, where they had an amazing time together.

Early in 2009, on the last day of a holiday in Bali, Mark got down on bended knee. Krystyn’s ‘yes’ was followed by an afternoon lazing by the pool with text messages rolling in from around the world from excited family and friends.

Krystyn and Mark opted for a classic summer vintage theme for their wedding day. Krystyn found that she became increasingly nervous before the ceremony, but says that as soon as she saw Mark, she felt at ease. “My mum had given me my great grandmother’s diamond and sapphire ring as my something old, borrowed and blue all in one.”

After the ceremony, the bridal party drove back to the reception venue in a stretch Bentley, while Krystyn and Mark followed in a glamorous Rolls Royce. Luckily, the rain had made way for a perfect summer afternoon complete with a spectacular blue sky.

The couple had their photos taken in the reception venue grounds while their guests enjoyed drinks and canapés on the veranda and lawns. The reception was held in a beautifully decorated marquee and the speeches proved to be one of the evening’s highlights. Another highlight was the couple’s choreographed first dance, which delighted their guests who watched from the courtyard while stars twinkled overhead.
