“Organising an event is a big job, no matter which way you slice it”, says Emily who nonetheless, managed to do a mighty fine job orchestrating her own lunchtime wedding, held on a private property located over an hour north of Brisbane.
“The property at Woombye goes back a few generations on Lachlan’s side and it holds a special place his heart”, adds Emily who knew almost every vendor personally, including their talented photographer Jazzy Connors.
Having so many creative friends and family on board – including Emily’s grandmother who folded 1000 origami cranes for their invitations (yes, 1000!) – made the whole event much more meaningful with some guests contributing desserts in lieu of a wedding cake.
Emily’s favourite moment however, was marrying Lachlan in her gown from BHLDN which featured intricate lace and a delicate pleated skirt. “Standing up the front together felt even more intense than anticipated. Plus, the best kiss ever! Don’t stinge on the kiss.”
