It was only fitting that Alyce and George were married at their Bellarine Peninsula property beneath a tipi with 25 Kombis as the backdrop; their life together has revolved around the vintage vans. They first met when she contacted him to enquire about a Kombi he had for sale and they now run Hire A Kombi together!
Fabio Oliveira was the man behind the lens and Alyce and George couldn’t be happier with their choice of photographer. “He was really sweet and seemed to take amazing photos without anyone noticing. We felt like it was all really natural and fun and he used our surrounds and lighting to perfection. He told a beautiful story through his photos.”
The wedding was planned in just 4 months when the pair decided that if they were going to throw a 30th birthday party for Alyce they “might as well throw a wedding into the mix”. As you’d expect, it was a chilled out affair but big on DIY details. Alyce explains, “We both love restoring old furniture and reusing fabrics so we ended up with a wedding styled from all second hand materials from op shops and garage sales. Everything was hand made. For us it was simply perfect.”
Luckily Alyce and George were into simplicity when it came to their idea of a perfect wedding, as rain and gale force winds disrupted many of their plans. Alyce says, “I’ve always loved the simple and effective styled weddings. I think less is more sometimes.” Agreed!
