The idea of ‘what a wedding should be’ went straight out the window for Cindy and Eddie, who shirked tradition and killed it in the unconventional nuptials game. The Olsen may not be your typical wedding venue but for these art lovers, the quirky South Yarra gem was everything they were looking for, as was the work of Jai Long (Free the Bird Photography) and we can’t imagine anyone better to capture their art-inspired affair.
According to Cindy, it took a trip to Japan for this pair to shrug off the ‘just friends’ label and they’ve been inseparable ever since, “Sometimes being away from your normal life and settings can make you think about things differently,” she explains, “and all of the things keeping us from being together just didn’t matter anymore. The rest as they say, is history!”
As if the Art Series ceremony venue wasn’t enough, this creative couple decided to make things a little more interesting by dreaming up some interactive art installations for the reception at South Wharf’s gallery-like space, Food and Desire. A video loop showing the city of Melbourne, a balloon space inspired by NGV’s recent Andy Warhol x Ai Wei Wei exhibition, plus some pretty epic floristry by Grown Florists made this marriage celebration one to remember!
