Gemma from gemma peanut gallery

You may recognise this lovely lady from her previous role on Australian drama Neighbours.  Maybe you have seen her prints or just like us maybe you love her blog. Gemma’s blog, Gemma Peanut Gallery, is a place I find myself glued. She writes about her adventures, love and style – all of which are accompanied with beautiful imagery. Recently Gemma headed to Thailand where she was married during a dream ceremony. Let’s sit down for a glass of bubbles and see how Gemma made her day so very special….

Tell us about you and your business/blog?

I am one of those creative creatures who refuses to be put in one self defining box. I’m a photographer, actor, lifestyle blogger and adventurer who also happens to sell typography prints.

Tell us about your wedding?

It was a dream. I’m still floating on cloud nine and wish never to come back down. The wedding was themed “A Midsummer Nights Dream Meets The Tropical Beach”. It was relaxed and moving with a sprinkle of wild.


What was your most memorable moment (or moments!)?

Gosh there are so many. Aside from the ceremony, the surprise fireworks (organised by my step Dad) were a definite highlight. As well as jumping into the swimming pool with my bridesmaids in all our wedding garb. The night went from being a laid back soiree to a spring break pool party!



If you could change one thing what would it be?
Absolutely nothing!

Who were your favourite vendors?

I loved my videography by The Story of Us. And the other greatest investment I made was in my wedding planner Alexa Champion. She brought my wedding dreams to life and made the whole process totally stress free and thoroughly enjoyable.


Who was your photographer?

I hired a local Thai guy on the island name Akaphon.

What advice would you have for others planning their wedding?

Don’t do anything because “it’s what you do at weddings”. Write your own rules. Put your personal touches on your special day. Make it yours!
