Climbing fences, traipsing around the bush and throwing bouquets (and grooms) in the air for the benefit of talented photographer Joshua Mikhaiel, Jaynell and Rob’s vibrant Sydney Polo Club wedding isn’t one we’ll be forgetting in a hurry.
The lovebirds spent nine months planning their special day, embarking on an impressive list of DIY projects. “We both love making things and working with our hands,” Jaynell tells us. “We made the arbour and the seating chart, hand painted the wedding signs, table numbers and the watercolour place cards and had Rob’s mum calligraphy guests’ names onto them.”
The reception was housed in an amazing barn on the property of the polo club and when the wedding guests took to the dance floor – costume change! Jaynell and Rob snuck away to change into their traditional Indian garb, a nod to Jaynell’s Indian roots, and returned to try out their best Bollywood moves. “The dancing was a lot of fun to watch,” Rob recalls. “The groomsmen had come up with a strange mix of what looked like Irish dancing, Indian dancing, chest bumping and moshing combined.”
