Depending on weather conditions the ceremony will take place on Saturday or Sunday. Julie, assisted by some of the women on station, is making her wedding dress. For her 'something old' she plans to sew in part of old orange pyramid tent.

"Over the last 10 years Tom and I have been working and travelling around the world. Getting married in Antarctica feels like it was meant to be. There is no better place really, I love snowy mountains and spending time in amazing places with awesome people."
