Fleur-Wood-Summerlees-country-wedding24

Remember back to 2009, when Basement Jaxx told us to “do your thing”. Well, we think it’s as good advice as any and so it seems, does Emma and Stephen – a couple who were happy to do it all a little bit differently.

“I’m a terrible introvert so it was really important for me to have a small, unassuming wedding.  I also avoided a lot of the wedding traditions that put extra focus on the bride (and groom) and instead aimed for a very communal atmosphere”, says Emma.

Nevertheless, their day at Summerlees Estate, in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales, was as magnificent as any other. In a Fleur Wood gown, Zimmerman shoes and makeup by Liv Lundelius, Emma looked beautiful with a scene of rolling hills and bright coloured peacocks behind her.

“Not everyone got the whole non-bride thing”, she says but what they did get was live music, performed by Steve’s brother, a delicious cake, made by Emma and a close friend and a lolly bar courtesy of Steve, not to mention some pretty awesome stationery from our friends at Simplethings Press.

Photographer Anna Turner was there to capture the relaxed vibe of their down-to-earth wedding, where everyone enjoyed delicious wine and good food by PB Catering. For Emma and Steve the best bit by far was getting to celebrate not only their love for each other but for all their family and friends as well.  Perhaps their From The Owl cake topper said it best… And so the adventure begins.
