Billi + Paul | Royal Motor Yacht Club Wedding
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.
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.
