Maybe it’s just us, but with everything that’s going on in the world, we’re yearning for the simple things. Quality time with family and friends, good food, good times. Maybe that’s why we’re so drawn to this gorgeous South Aussie country wedding – it doesn’t get more personal and meaningful than a wedding on the family farm!
Not much about this day went the ‘traditional’ way. After meeting in high school and being together 10 years, Lachlan decided it was time to propose after they brought home their gorgeous twin boys from the hospital. During a family photoshoot, Lachlan sneakily got down on one knee and pulled out a ring, surprising Briony, and it’s all caught on camera!
They also did a ‘first look’ and bridal party photos before their wedding ceremony, to maximise the time they could spend with their family and friends after officially getting hitched. Oh, and did we mention all the guests thought they were attending an engagement party?! What a way to shake things up – the couple said this was the best thing they did, as their guests we so excited they were finally getting to witness them exchange vows!
We can’t get enough of the dusty tones of the landscape, which the couple purposely incorporated into the styling of their day. It proves sometimes you don’t need to go overboard with colours schemes and extra details – just enhance the backdrop nature has provided!
