Jamila and Jeremy.
A relaxed, romantic wedding in the Victorian countryside was just perfect for this cool couple.
When Jamila and Jeremy got engaged in the US last year, little did they know that just eight weeks later, they find out Jamila was pregnant. Soon after, they decided to bring their wedding forward to before their baby was born- and set about planning their wedding in just two months.
The result? Spectacular. After a romantic casual ceremony (the bride, who’s Editor-in-Chief at Mamamia, described it as “part promises and part stand-up comedy routine), guests were treated to champagne, canapés and a game of giant Jenga! But for Jamila, the best part of the day was, without a doubt, the speeches, when the couples cherished friends and family members brought the house down- and to happy tears.

Photographer: Sarah Black Photography (sarahblackphotography.com.au). “Sarah uses real, analogue camera film, with a mix of colour and black-and-white shots. The results were gorgeous.”
Dress: Anna Campbell (annacampbell.com.au). “Knowing I’d be 18 weeks pregnant threw a spanner in the works when it came to dress shopping, but I fell in love with my beaded gown. The neckline looked a little Persian – a nice nod to my heritage.”
Shoes: Tony Bianco (tonybianco.com.au). “I wore impossibly high heels because my sister and Jeremy’s family are all very tall!”
Hair and Makeup: Hair by Lauren at Edwards and Co (edwardsandco.com.au), and makeup by Hanna Sinkinson (hannahsinkinson.com.au). “My makeup was soft and simple, and I wore my hair up because the neckline of my dress was so pretty.”
Groom’s and groomsmen suits: Shirt, pants and bow ties by J Crew (jcrew.com), suspenders by Hugo Boss (hugoboss.com). “The boys would al like it noted that they tied their own bow ties on the day!”
