Outdoors Wedding in Lilyvale, Australia

Garden Weddings

As we wave goodbye to summer, our Australian friends welcome sunny days and a season filled with beautiful weddings. Tealily Photography shot Laura and Simon’s wedding at Stanwell Park, near Sydney. The bride skipped having a traditional white gown and opted for this gorgeous number with yellow accents that fit their wedding like a glove.

From Laura:The theme for the styling of the wedding came from DIY ideas and my love for all things vintage. It wasn’t a conscious decision to have a particular color scheme, but from the detail on my dress and it being Simon’s favorite color, the yellow evolved into a theme of the day. My family, close friends and myself spent months searching through second hand stores, collecting vintage vases, ornaments, glass jars and bottles for the venue decor. Food is a love of ours so we also collected glass domes, decorative trays and cheeseboards to make our own cheese bar for guests to enjoy pre-dinner. Glass jars and cakes stands were put together for a “yellow” inspired dessert table with ruffle cakes, cupcakes, macaroons and lollies.

The venue decor was setup by two of my amazing, creative friends. They also put together the bouquets, button holes and venue flowers that we purchased at a wholesaler. We had so much help from friends and family… making bunting, bottling home made lemonade, painting signs and potting succulents. Having everybody involved made the whole day feel very personal

Simon’s love of music and literature naturally had him hand-pick all the music for the day and the readings for the ceremony. “Benediction of the Apaches” and “A Bride Song- Christina Rossetti” were read by two of our very close friends. We had a simple, short ceremony under a large leafless tree where we read our own vows to each other.

It was important to the both of us that our wedding be comfortable for all of our guests. We tried to focus on making everything unique to ourselves, yet things that our guest would recognize as “us”.

Since our wedding took place during July, we wanted the look and theme of our wedding to be summery. We used colors like orange, red, and yellow to represent the sun. With the help of my bridesmaids and other family we handmade the flag place-markers and table numbers. My aunt made the pennants that went around the sweetheart table and cake table and I made my shoe clips myself.

Establish what is important for you both to have on your wedding day and stick to those ideas, even if people look at you funny. Communicate well with your partner to make sure that you are both happy and comfortable with how the wedding is looking so far.
