Having met in the digital space thank to online dating app Jack'd, it makes sense that influencers Henry Ng (Street Style Poser) and the camera-wielding Glenn Sofinowski (@spunkeetrunks) should live-stream their wedding ceremony.
Those wifi-enabled watchers witnessed a colourful, original and ultimately fabulous celebration that reflected the couple’s passion for fashion and design.
The combination of Thom Browne suits, veiled grooms and genuine love deserves a double click and IRL love.

Glenn - "Henry, I promise not to frown when you say 'why buy a book when you can’t wear it?'"
Henry - "Glenn, I promise to love you as long as you can't fit into my clothes, which means we don't have to share our wardrobe."

Daniel Tomalaris from Sydney folk rock band, St Joan played acoustic renditions of tunes from Radiohead, Bruce Springsteen, Lana Del Rey, Chris Isaak, Selena Gomez and Crowded House mixed with his original songs.
Henry's family travelled from Singapore and Glenn’s family live in Sydney so their wedding was the very first opportunity for both families to meet each other, and also for their friends to meet their families.
