Vero and Cyrill married on a sunny August day in the Mayfair Room at Mayfair Library. They invited thirty of their friends and family and everyone had a role to fulfill during the celebrations.
Vero wore a full length ivory gown with intricate lace, Empire line silk ribbon detail, and little buttons down the back. She teamed this with nude sandals and carried a pale, mid and deep pink rose bouquet. She styled her hair in a classic chignon with small diamante flower details.
Her two witnesses – Corinne and Kate – were in pink and blush coloured floral dresses. Cyrill wore white trousers and a raspberry waistcoat and jacket. The jacket was embroidered in a botanic theme in shades of pink. His two witnesses – Yves and Denis – matched in white trousers and embroidered waistcoats.
The ceremony contained readings in both English and French. Mark, the Registrar, even tried out a little French of his own. When it came time for the exchange of vows and Vero was asked, ‘do you take this man to be your husband…’ with a flourish she opened her fan to reveal a very large ‘oui’ which pretty much brought the house down. It was very funny.
During the signing of the register the music played was calming rain forest sounds. Registrar Mark couldn’t resist a quick wave of the ‘oui’ fan much to Vero and Cyrill’s amusement.
And then it was their exit followed by hugs and kisses all around. They left Mayfair Library under a hail of confetti. There were then group photos in next door Mount Street Gardens followed by a few of the couple themselves.
