From Anna Wu Photography... The California girl traveled to Sydney in search of a new adventure and eager to live the beach bum life. She was vegan at the time – though that didn’t last long once she started working at “Hurricane’s,” a steak house by Bondi Beach. It was there that she would meet fellow coworker Cameron, who was also just temporarily in Australia. Through his thick accent, Liz could barely tell that he was saying his name was Cameron and he was from Scotland when they met (she may have thought he was Irish and his name was Colin). But they hit it off and ended up dating long distance for a while before deciding to move back to Sydney together to give their relationship a chance.

They lived together in Bondi, where they shared a love of the beach despite not really liking the ocean. And as they grew closer, their families would meet one another and hang out in all three places: Sydney, Australia; Glasgow, Scotland; and Marin County, California. It was fitting that for their wedding, they would be married in a simple and elegant backyard celebration back in California at Liz’s family home. It was the perfect gathering of friends and family from all over the world, with a few Scottish traditions, two adorable pool swans, and a hearty dose of tears and laughter thrown in.
