We are suckers for decorations with a difference and awesome invitations here at Hello May but at the end of the day the most important ingredient at any wedding is love. Real, honest-to-goodness love. And there is no doubt about it Felicity and Rajie’s big day had it in spades.

With no family here in Australia (Felicity is from the UK and Rajie is from South Africa) this gorgeous couple decided on a quiet wedding for two at Bannisters Lodge on the south coast of New South Wales. It was close enough to Sydney so they could sneak down on the weekend to tie the knot and easy enough to return year on year to celebrate their anniversary!

Ulladulla based celebrant Donna wrote a beautiful ceremony and Felicity and Rajie had their first dance together as husband and wife (with not a soul in sight) before going down to breaky the morning after this ever-so-romantic elopement!

Photographer James Frost captured some beautiful moments on the day, we especially love the shots of Felicity strolling solo down the hill and the look on Rajie’s face as she makes her way to him – like we said, real, honest-to-goodness love!
