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.
