Professional acrobats who tour the world 10 months of the year, Jascha and Joren met through circus friends and spent their first date adventuring in the Scottish Highlands for a week. After officially tying the knot a year ago, these lovebirds flew home to Jascha’s hometown of Adelaide to throw an epic party, all captured by the wonderful Kate Pardey.
Splitting the day into two events, the couple kicked things off with a “breakfast with the queen” themed brunch at Adelaide’s Botanic Park. The first of two ceremonies took place under the giant Morten Bay Fig trees, surrounded by loved ones. Jascha shares, “Joren’s family is Jewish and although we are not, some of the traditions are quite beautiful so we created our ceremony based around a select few. A family friend indigo dyed a linen sheet which friends held above us as a ‘Chuppah’ representing the future home we will create together.”
While casually chatting to friends about the struggle to find a venue big enough to fit 150 people within their budget, a mate happened to mention he owns warehouse that they could use. A car park for local businesses by day, the couple threw a pop up wedding/warehouse party, fitting everything needed to add their own touch to the space in just one van.
Ceremony number two took a theatrical turn, in the Bride’s own words. “To fit with our unconventional and eccentric style we held another ceremony at the reception. We invited all of our friends and family to sign up to be part of the wedding party, in any role they desired. We had around 20 bridesmaids, 15 groomsmen, a gaggle of flower girls (and boys!) and an unofficial celebrant. While the wedding party was being wrangled we left the warehouse to make our big entrance in Jascha’s grandpa’s sports car. We drove right into the warehouse and walked down the aisle with all of our parents to Queen’s rendition of the bridal march. After some makeshift vows and confetti cannons, we sealed the deal by stomping on another wine glass which cued the DJ’s and the party began!”
