Real Weddings: Marina & Donavan from Bride & Prejudice

While most couples have 6-12 months to plan a wedding, Donavan and Marina had only 6 weeks to organise the wedding of their dreams.

Donavan and I have been dating for 2 years. He moved to Adelaide from Melbourne only 3 months after we met, so we have been living together right from the start. And I could not wait to get married to him!
While most couples have 6-12 months to plan a wedding, we had only 6 weeks. Why so quick? We were shooting a new TV programme called “Bride & Prejudice”, where the audience got to see a snippet of our lives and journey towards married life. It is amazing how much can be done in a short period of time! We have been blessed to have found all the wonderful people we have mentioned below, and we are very grateful to each and every one of them!
