There’s no better foundation for a strong relationship than a firm friendship and Peta and Gerard were pals long before they found love. The pair met during a night on the town and if their Carriageworks wedding (photographed by Justin Aaron) is anything to go by, this fairytale couple have one helluva stylish happily-ever-after to look forward to.
After swapping vows at Gerard’s old school stomping ground, St Patricks Chapel, the wedding party headed to fashion and culture hub, Carriageworks to party on. ‘Contemporary Urban Romance’ was the official theme, orchestrated by Lisa Madigan, and Peta and Gerard have nothing but praise for their stylist extraordinaire. “We had no idea where to start so we enlisted the help of the uber talented Lisa Madigan.” Shares Peta. “Lisa is quite simply a genius. We were so thrilled that she did what she did for us.”
Lisa tailored everything, from the lighting, to the tablescape, the floral installations to the finer details, such as each guest’s name being scrawled onto the tablecloth – place-cards are so 2016. With such a fab setting, there was no doubt going to be dancing and according to the newlyweds, three piece band Master Blaster had everybody on their feet.
