When Kane holds Gab’s hand, he holds it loosely – their 12 years together have shown them that they don’t need to hold on tight. They are home for each other; a permanent, comforting, welcome presence. Gab holds Kane’s hand loosely too – just her first two fingers curled around his pinky. She knows he’s by her side through everything, just like he does. They didn’t cry, or even sniffle through their wedding ceremony (though the rest of us did). They laughed, and they smiled. They knew.

Besides, Gab needs her hands – she’s a talented jewellery designer, and she made her bridesmaids’ gifted bangles herself, PLUS all the florals for this epic celebration with her girls, PLUS she and Kane crafted their very own wedding rings. What could feel more at home on your fingers than the rings you made together?

Every moment of Gab and Kane’s wedding day was full of heart – their friends and family came together to contribute their own talents, from lighting to officiating, DJing to hair and makeup. Their speeches were amongst the most heartfelt I’ve heard to date, delivered under the stars. Guests were treated to a full festival experience with marquee, fire pits, festoon lighting and food trucks, and everyone Gab and Kane love was there to share in each warm moment.
