A Simple & Natural Lake Treehouse Wedding

Amanda and Heather describe themselves as simple, down to earth folk. they both wanted to be at the beach or in a forest-like setting for their March wedding day – somewhere out of the city and away from the hustle and bustle of life. They found the perfect venue in Secrets on the Lake in Queensland, Australia, and based the rest of the day around there!

In terms of theme, again they wanted to keep things simple and be inspired by their surroundings, incorporating their favourite colour into their flowers, suits, table arrangement and sand ceremony.

Boho Meets 1920s Rainy Lake Wedding

Despite what Alanis Morrisette said, rain on your wedding day isn’t always a bad thing and today’s wedding feature is a lesson that your day will still be perfect even if things go differently than planned! Rebekah and Jesse were inspired by their love of nature for their September wedding, choosing Blue Heron Lake in Dorset, Ohio to host the day.

The couple didn’t stick to a budget, but reckon they spent around $8,000. Agape Photography beautifully captured the day, and they planned it themselves. Rebekah wore a BHLDN gown and accessorised with a hair drape from Azure Jewellery. Jesse chose some amazing decadent floral boots to accessorise his suit.  The couple chose custom wedding rings made by The Northway Studio.

An Intimate Lakeside Elopement with a Picnic Reception!

Marjolaine and Julian’s first meeting was your classic love story – at a costume party. He was dressed as a pirate and she was dressed as a banana! “Whenever I think about it, it makes me laugh that Julian decided ‘Tonight I’m going to flirt with the girl dressed as a banana'”, laughed Marjolaine. He must’ve seen beneath her yellow exterior as they’ve been inseparable ever since.

They both live and work in the city, but their favourite past-time is getting lost in nature. Marjolaine was never the sort of girl who had big dreams of a wedding, but she did find herself following wedding blogs as she found the pictures so inspiring. When she stumbled upon photos of a couple who married in the middle of nowhere, alone, without guests, without an officiant – just them, nature and lot of love, she knew that this version of a wedding was one she could get on board with.

Intimate Lakeside Wedding in New Zealand

Heather and Iggy’s wedding took place in St Omer Park, Queenstown. Their lakeside ceremony was intimate and perfect for them. “We chose to have a short ceremony in a Queenstown park on the edge of Lake Wakatipu ($35 hire fee to the council – yeah!) We narrowed down the precise location the day before, and then updated everyone via our prepared contact lists. The set-up was easy – a few chairs for those that needed it, strings of cranes placed in the willow trees by the best man and Iggy, and a few well-coordinated meet-ups with the celebrant and my brother that played our music from a portable speaker.”

“We had prepared the ceremony format weeks before, and it ran for 10-15 minutes. The weather was great on the day, which was lucky as our wet weather alternative wasn’t really feasible. As the ceremony location was in public, the wedding party consisting of me, my bridesmaid and my father found a way to subtly sneak up behind a huge oak tree (me with a sheet around my dress!) and emerge without being seen.”

Colourful 10th Anniversary Party

Tenth anniversary party on a marsh (27)

Today’s feature isn’t a wedding, but I think when you see these photos you’ll understand why I’ve made an exception to share them! Jade and Matthew’s 10th anniversary party was held at a friend’s house. It was a completely DIY event. The couple are wedding photographers, so they even shot it themselves!

“When we decided to celebrate our 10th anniversary we knew we had to include some of our favourite things!” said Jade. “When we got married 10 years ago things were a little different, so we wanted to put our own little spin on our anniversary.”

“We decided to celebrate with a small group of friends with a backyard BBQ feel – no stuffiness, just good times. We wanted our friends to eat, drink, and be merry!! There were a lot of laughs. Matthew made sure of that with this two signature cocktails – a homemade strawberry infused gin fizz and smoked pineapple mezcal cocktail. They were delicious!!”

Lady in the Lake Inspired Wedding Shoot

There are so many things I love about this photo shoot. The mood, the fog, slightly gothic vibe without being over the top… I just know you’re going to love it too.

“Wedding after wedding this year was blush, greys, and soft whites”, stylist Lauren explained. “They’re all very beautiful but we were ready to play around with something a little edgier for a change.”

“We found this dark metal, highly detailed crown and it got our minds reeling and dreaming of a moody, romantic, Lady of the Lake themed shoot. Once the concept was born, I pulled together some of my very favourite vendors to help make it a reality. We found a model with icy grey long hair and skin to die for. The Daughters of Simone gown we chose felt both current and old worldly at the same time. It also and allowed for light to filter through in the most fabulous way.”
