Rustic, Bohemian & Music-Filled Wedding

Amy and John wanted to be married outside and for their wedding to have a bohemian and rustic vibe. Both being massive music lovers, that was also always going to be a big part of the celebrations. They had a rock and blues band (who are all their friends) as their entertainment and the bride sang with them in the evening too!

“We met 11 years ago working at the same hospital”, began Amy. “We dated for a few months but decided to just remain friends. We stayed in contact over the years and then in 2014 we got back together and five months later we got engaged. Despite our years apart with always knew we’d end up together… And so did our friends and family!”

The day was held at Lemore Manor in Herefordshire.  “We didn’t want a traditional wedding in a church or indoors so when we found our venue we fell in love with being able to get married outside underneath the bandstand and for all our guests to be seated on hay bales. We also didn’t want a standard wedding band, so we had a rock and blues band play for us who just so happened to be our family friends. I guess what made it more unique is that I’d sang with the band before and I was able to sing with them on our wedding day. Most of the music played throughout the day was rock, blues and acoustic.”

Hot Rod Wedding in Castlemaine, Australia

HOTROD WEDDING - CAM GROVE (51)

Milly and Willo wanted a big party for their wedding, full of colour, fun and surrounded by everyone they love. They both love classic cars so the hot rod theme kind of happened accidentally!

“We chose a location that is only a couple of minutes down the road from where we live”, began the bride. “That helped by making it all feel close, relaxed and easy to manage. We just planned what we thought would make for a great day. A celebration of our love, but also a day to acknowledge those around us who have been wonderful. We also made sure children were included. We have a two year old son, Archie, and most around us have children, so we planned to make sure they all had a fun time too, hello jumping castle and bubbles!”

The ceremony was held in South Muckleford Public Hall, a small disused public primary school, in Castlemaine, Victoria. “We are not religious or deeply spiritual, we believe in love and family”, Milly continued. “We had a wonderful celebrant who guided us to create a ceremony that was really funny and full of love. It made it feel relaxed and that was important to us, that everyone felt relaxed and could let their hair down. We had a reading by my sister and best friend, the palm ceremony and Willo’s mum did a reading that was important to her. Other than that it was just telling our story and having a laugh. I also wanted lots of confetti so I bought a kilo of it!”
