What’s your perfect wedding day? Brunch by the beach? Barefoot on the sand? Midnight on a rooftop? For today’s blissed-out happy couple,  Marlena & Warwick,  a picnic in the sunshine sounds like heaven. Just like for many others, 2020 forced these two to reconsider everything, and that included their wedding day.

The result? Beauty in the sunshine. Enlisting I Do Drive Thru Weddings and Oli of Briars Atlas to pull it off, the pair invited just two friends, Susan and Samuel, and their favourite four-legged pal to bear witness to their vows. The small group celebrating with a picnic in the garden, complete with beers, champagne and of course, the ever obligatory for 2020, face mask.

We will always and forever encourage you to do your day your way, and for Marlena & Warwick, I am sure you’ll agree that their day ticked all the “perfect” boxes.

The group arrived at the wedding together, opting out of the “walk down the aisle”.

Marlena and Warwick wanted their day to be as casual and as fuss-free as possible, so they worked with I Do Drive Thru Weddings to plan their quick (just seven minutes long!) and fun ceremony, which was officiated by Klara McMurray.

Marlena and Warwick kept their attire simple, wanting the day to be about the vows and each other, rather than about their clothes.

Warwick surprised his new wife with a gorgeous garden picnic, set up by the Picnic Styling Co. It came complete with grazing boxes, cake, beer and bubbles!


Big beautiful congratulations to you both Marlena and Warwick! Thank you for allowing us to share the story of your day. Thank you also to I Do Drive Thru Weddings and Oli of Briars Atlas for today’s beautiful story and imagery!
