This amazing multicultural wedding hardly needs an introduction from me, since the stunning photos from Nine Photography truly speak for themselves, and the words from couple Liza and Anton are so simple, and so spot on. But may I just say, wow! What a truly unique and personalized wedding! I can’t get enough of these photos from their day.

What inspired your personal wedding style, and how did you incorporate your style and personalities into your big day? We wanted to combine each others different styles and imagination into one creative expression. I grew up in Mexico City and Anton on a farm in the Austrian Alps. The basic idea was farm-style with a family flair. The beautiful venue at Sevenoaks offered the perfect foundation to bring nature, simplicity, a touch of luxury, and great gourmet food together. We wanted to keep it simple, let nature speak for itself, offer comfort, great healthy food and activities that would bring the family and friends together, because three nations were present at our wedding. We made it a three day event to give family and friends the opportunity to come together and celebrate with us.

Looking back, what are the moments, decisions or memories that you love the most about your wedding? We loved the natural surroundings and location of the outdoor venue. Making it a three day event and combining three cultures and two families was also very special to us.

What piece of advice would you give to a bride planning her wedding today? Always remember what you want your dream wedding to look like, but be flexible and open to changes as you go along. Surround yourself with vendors who support your vision fully and completely, and who offer creative additions rather than just their own visions. If some things dont seem to work out, take that as a possibility for something even better to come along. And have fun, avoid stressful situations as much as possible, and dont forget, Its just a wedding.”
