Huge flowers and a surprise Smarties cake at Angela & Jean-Paul’s Aussie wedding

This backyard wedding in Sydney is the sweetest thing you’ll see today. Highlights include the GIANT flowers carried by the bride and bridesmaids (and occasionally eaten by the groom), the surprise Smarties explosion cake, and the slightly tipsy father of the groom speech.

Jess & Pete’s glam horror and zombie wedding

We’re falling into the so-excited-it’s-almost-fall trap hardcore. But that’s okay: trap us in your cool embrace and crunchy leaves, fall! Here’s a little horror and zombies pre-Halloween preview to whet your appetite for the season. The dessert bar alone is to die for… think anatomical hearts, zombie mousse graves, and a cake with a giant bloody bite out of it. It’s ghoulishly delicious!

Aussie anime lovers tie the knot

One thing you must know about this couple, Karl and Kristina, is that they had this engagement shoot. Yep, that’s a cosplay of the anime series The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, which was a shared interest when they met. Their wedding, while not an exercise in cosplay, totally had veins of their anime love throughout (including the main characters of their favorite show as the cake toppers!).
