Intimate Glamping Wedding Inspired by Rainbows, Mermaids & Unicorns!

When we first laid eyes on these photos, we were convinced it must be a staged photo shoot, real weddings aren’t this perfectly pretty are they? But no, this was Ashley and Graeme’s actual wedding! They described their dreamy and intimate summer celebration as bright, colourful, fun and relaxed, with their inspiration coming from mermaids, unicorns, rainbows, and a whole lot of pretty.

The bride said, “We really just did exactly what we wanted, and had very few traditions. We wanted to have a relaxed and fun evening with our friends, and so that’s what we did.”

The couple opted for a very small ceremony, almost an elopement, held at MacDonald Acres., They are both quite shy and wanted space to reflect quietly on their marriage, so only two of their best friends were there as their witnesses. Afterwards, they invited a few of their favourite people to join them in celebrating at an al fresco style dinner, and eating delicious sweet treats from The Cotton Candy Lady, with everyone being invited to camp out in luxury style, courtesy of Luxe Camp. The whole night was filled with giggling, good food, music from DJ iPhone, and celebration.

“Our wedding was just like a sweetie shop… but one that sells liquor and cigarettes and plays heavy metal”, began the bride. “I wanted it to look a bit like a kid’s party to encourage everyone to stop acting like grown ups. Not that any of us needed much encouragement!”
