Emma & Andy {married at Petersham Bowling Club}

Ah this wedding, where to begin?
Sydney Petersham Bowling Club Wedding by Jilske PhotographySeriously, it’s brilliant. Emma and Andy organised a fun and simple wedding that truly reflected ‘them’. They did everything they could to make it their own and everyone loved it!
They held the ceremony and reception at their local bowling club in Petersham. This is not some dangly old dusty institution, rather a lively social place that hosts parties, gigs etc. and really brings the neighbourhood together!  How to describe it other than that it’s something with lots of history, but still feels very much alive?
Their whole family banded together and collected vintage crochet tablecloths for over more (!) than a year. Emma searched and searched for a wedding dress, until she found what she was looking for on Etsy. They both love boxed people, so had lookalikes made for the cake toppers. The flowers, streamers and everything was DIY mixed with great finds from around the world. Yet it all fit together perfectly.
