It was such a beautiful privilege to take part in Shady and Dave’s once in a lifetime wedding celebration. What made their day so unique was that most of their guests were flying in from the other side of the world as Shadiyah is originally from Texas and Dave from Canada.
The pair met whilst teaching in Malaysia and they now live together in the eastern suburbs of Sydney in Coogee. They have completely fallen in love with Australian life, hence the reason they decided to have their wedding locally at the Coogee Surf Life Saving Club. This was the perfect choice for them as they love the beach, playing beach volley ball, snorkelling and living a very fun and active lifestyle.
Their boho/vintage wedding was bright and fun. It had a chilled out, beachy vibe and unique elements including their doughnut cake tower and their very original guest book – which was the 100 Year Commemoration Book of the Coogee Surf Club. Shady and Dave based the whole day on their favourite saying – “You’re my favourite.” This brought them together when they were just friends when they both knew that they would be so much more. This sentiment echoed throughout the day on the bunting, cake topper, bonbonierre and was even engraved on their wedding bands.
The day was filled with so much love and the party went long into the night. It really was a once in a lifetime celebration shared with family and friends from all around the globe and a wonderful introduction to their new hometown, Coogee.
