things, as long as you have good food, drinks and music than everyone should be happy!

Notes from the lovers


Did you always want to get married on a property?

Our ceremony was held at Pete’s parents farm, our plan was to buy our own property and

get married there but it didn’t happen in time so we decided to incorporate both of our

families and have the ceremony at Pete’s families property and the reception at my parents

property. The venues were definitely the highlight of our wedding for us, it was so nice to get

married on our families places and we had always planned to get married on a private

property so we didn’t have to worry about any restrictions or the venue closing, so 3am it was!! Haha

Tell us about the weather, the rain but also the sunset!

We were so lucky with how the whole day turned out with the weather. It was overcast

and raining in the morning I think but cleared up in the afternoon, our ceremony was at

3pm at Bellwood. We were so lucky we arrived [on time] because if we had waited another 5

minutes all of our guests would have got absolutely drenched as straight after

Bernadette (celebrant) said you may now kiss the bride we walked down the aisle and it

started raining with the heaviest rain we had seen all year,
then after the storm come through and as the bridal party arrived at the reception held at

my parents place the sky literally lit up. It was all misty and the sun setting over the mist was

amazing, Talitha and the other photographers/videographers were loving it! You will see

some of the photos of what I’m talking about. All of the guests saw it too and said they had

never seen anything like it before


Must have's for the day?

- Nice umbrellas for photos (lucky my Mum organised this) I never thought about this but

when it come to it we definitely needed them and it was so nice having umbrellas which

looked nice in the photos

- Make sure you have nibbles & drinks organised for the bridal party if you’re going away

for photos

- Have a second option if it rains and your ceremony / reception is outside, luckily we

didn’t need to because the rain come after but I definitely wasn’t prepared if it did at the

ceremony haha


top tips you'd love other couples to know!

Don’t stress too much, as much as you want it to be perfect you can’t plan everything

that’s going to happen so if it rains, it rains!

It’s your day so do what’s right for you and

your partner and not what others tell you to do. Its good to get ideas and help but if you

truly want something then do it!!

Would highly recommend going on a honeymoon straight after your wedding, it was so

nice to go away after we got married and just soak up married life. It wouldn’t have been

the same if we went a year later
