Billi + Paul | Royal Motor Yacht Club

Paul works in sports media. He's a producer at Fox Sports for soccer, while Billi is an architect. They actually met at training. They were in the same class doing a circuit running up a hill, and "he beat me up the hill - I didn't like it :)" Billi recalled. They're both competitive and sporty.

Paul and Billi celebrated their wedding with a Beddekin at Billi's grandmother's house. Their wedding ceremony and reception was held at the Royal Motor Yacht Club of NSW at Point Piper.

 

Getting ready

 

The Beddekin or Bedeken

The beddekin or bedeken ceremony is a Jewish veiling ceremony, where the groom approaches the bride and covers the bride's face with a veil just before the wedding ceremony. It was breathtakingly beautiful to witness Paul and Billi's Beddekin with their family and loved ones.

How did you know your partner is “the one”?

Billi says, “Because I don’t have to overthink anything or worry. It’s just easy.”

 

What vibe were you going for in the wedding?

They shared, “Just wanted it to feel like us. Relaxed and casual.”

 

What does marriage mean to you?

“It’s just another day of spending time with the person you love. Marriage is a commitment, loyalty and security. It’s just fun!”

 

WHat's your favorite detail or moment of the day (besides becoming husband and wife)?

"Just that we danced the night away. Sweating, no shoes, didn't care what we looked like. We just wanted to have fun with the people we love."

 

Talk to us about your dress, Billi.

“First one I tried on. Helen English is sensational in Paddington. She understood me straight away.”

 

What advice do you have for other couples planning a wedding?

"Just relax and be yourselves. Don’t try too hard."

We are absolutely ecstatic! The night was seamless. We didn’t have a wedding planner and on the night Paul and I weren’t thinking about small details but in the end all of the photos worked out beautifully.

A big thank you to the team for making it such a special night to remember and for capturing the atmosphere.
