While there are many old school wedding traditions Viva has been happy to see disappear, the getaway car is not one of them. Okay, we should be specific. The time honoured tradition of the wedding party sneaking out during the reception to toilet paper the bride and groom’s car, wrap it in cellophane and fill the air vents with confetti is not what we’re talking about. Having an actual getaway car is.

A common past tradition, wedding guests would gather outside to officially send off the bride and groom earlier in the evening and then continue to enjoy the reception without them. When newlyweds decided to ditch the early exit, choosing instead to party the night away with their guests and often being the last to leave, the getaway car became obsolete.

Well Viva’s happy to report it’s making a comeback! Newlyweds aren't necessarily leaving their reception early, but after exchanging vows they definitely have a car to drive away in with the Just Married decor to prove it. We wonder if Will & Kate having their own getaway car had something to do with it.

Anne + Anthony

All of them are based in Sydney but decided to get married in Boracay.

After my trip to Melbourne last year, I flew to Sydney to meet them and my other couple (getting married this November in Shangri-la Mactan.)

I'm truly grateful to Anne, Anthony, the lovely girls, their families, and of course, special thank you to Ms Tess (Anne's mom) for trusting me! It was not easy, but the experience was worth-it! ;-)

It was an incredible experience. I love working with overseas clients, challenging and fun! :-) Thank you 3G, Skype, etc! haha ;-)

Anne is a modern bride.
She wants contemporary details: beaded, geometric, volume, sexy, elegant!

"Find some fun rain boots, colorful umbrellas, and show the rain who’s boss". Those were our words of wisdom in our last post should you be faced with rain on your wedding day. Now here's a little inspiration to help you do just that!
