Rikki and Kent share the same birthday of April 5th, so when it came to their wedding day they threw caution to the wind and decided to combine birthday and wedding celebrations and throw the biggest party of their lives! “The only thing you actually NEED to do for a wedding is say like, two sentences,” explained Rikki. “Everything else is entirely up to you to make into the best day of your life.”

October 4, 2019

It's that perfect time of year where the temperatures have dropped slightly but it's not yet baltic outside, the colours of the trees are at their most beautiful and Pumpkin Spiced Lattes are a thing again (OK spoiler alert I actually think they're gross but many people don't agree with me!) But MOST OF ALL, I love the weddings that happen in Autumn. Especially when they're low key and full of all the feels.

Armed with a $35,000 (AUD) budget, Kelli and Gerard set about finding themselves a venue to host their day. They settled on Gum Gully Farm, situated in the beautiful foothills of the Dandenong Ranges near Melbourne, a rustic and intimate space that felt just perfect for them as it was laid back and easygoing. It also had the perk that they were able to bring in their alcohol for the staff to serve, which helped to keep costs down.

Believe it or not, the 2004 rom-com A Cinderella Story was the starting point for the inspiration behind Gary and Amy’s August 2018 wedding day. “I’ve always loved the scene where he takes her for a dance in a gorgeous rotunda," said Amy. "It's filled with fairy lights and white roses and looks so magical, so that was the starting point for the vision for our day!”

Marie-Luise Weddings

Kristen and Pete were married at Panama Dining Room in Fitzroy, Victoria. Their theme was very much influenced by their venue, and the bride's love of all things vintage. "The wedding was a goth/ tropical/ Art Deco in black and white mash-up," began the bride . "Think Flying Down to Rio meets The Addams Family. We also decided we wanted everyone to wear a hat, as Pete is known for always wearing one."

Book-Inspired Greenhouse Wedding in the 42°C Melbourne Heat

Ellie Kime

Free the Bird

September 6, 2018

Ella and Michael's wedding is the wedding of plant lovers' dreams. Their venue was the Glasshaus, a plant nursery based in Melbourne, and their styling was simple, green and nerdy - in the most breathtaking way! It's so beautiful I'd even brave the 42°C heat (yep, celsius, you read that right; Ella and Michael got married on the hottest day of the year) to be there, and that's coming from a girl who complains at 22 degrees. But enough about me - let's talk about this STUNNER of a big day, shall we?

I was trying to figure out how to best start 2018 with a BANG, wondering what would be the perfect post that would start as we mean to go on for the year ahead... And then I laid eyes on Suzi and Ivan's fantasy, fairytale and UNICORN THEMED WEDDING and the decision was basically made for me. This has to be one of the coolest weddings I've seen in a long time! They got tattoos, the bride wore a floral purple dress and they even a real life unicorn for goodness sake. Oh and very the best part? The whole wedding only cost $1500 (AUD). Truly incredible.

Music, Pom Poms and a Bride in Red

It’s Beautiful Here

August 22, 2017

Krysia and Robbie met at the Australian Youth Orchestra’s National Music Camp in Adelaide. When they came to marry, a whole decade later, they decided to incorporate this love of music into the celebration. They always wanted the day to reflect their laid back nature. It was also vital to them to use their wedding to support a charity they believe in, and female run businesses. They had a vegan menu catered by the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre and only hired female vendors!
