Allow us to introduce you to the lovely Jenny and Liam. This creative couple recently tied the knot at Jenny’s mums gorgeous property, high up in the Blue Mountains. Jenny tells us “our reception was completely in our control, because we had it a private residence. We wanted it to look rustic, unique, charming and to reflect our characters. We tried to source everything ourselves so we didn’t have to pay for everything.”
With the help of some dedicated family and friends Jenny and Liam got the DIY wedding they dreamed of. Jenny’s sister made all of the bunting and table cloths, giant wooden industrial cable spools were used as tables and the blackboards were created with a bit of plywood, some blackboard paint and a can-do attitude. We are especially digging the unique wedding favours… test tubes and corks were purchased from eBay and filled with T2 tea called Black Rose.
These crazy cats also thought outside the box when it came to feeding their guests. Jenny explains “because it was a summer wedding and a HOT day, we decided that it would be great to have gelato after the ceremony under the trees and then bundles of fruit at the reception as an alternative to all the hot canapés. We used small hessian bags and crates and filled them with peaches, nectarines, grapes, strawberries, watermelon, everything! It was delicious!”
Photographed by one of our fave photographers, the lovely Bek Grace, this is one of those weddings you can’t help but pour over every gorgeous photo and soak up the ideas… I don’t know about you guys but there will be a wheelbarrow full of booze at our next party, that’s for damn sure!
