Melbourne Boathouse Wedding

When newlyweds Rob and Kim were dating, they visited the Fairfield Boathouse in Melbourne and immediately knew that’s where they wanted to marry. Taking a great deal of inspiration from their invitation suite from Rifle Paper Co., the couple and their friends planned an amazing day that was as much a treat for the guests as it was for Rob and Kim themselves. Our thanks goes out to the incredible Jonathan Ong for sending these images our way!

From the bride, Kim: The style we envisioned for our wedding was vintage autumn picnic with a touch of boathouse dapper: Autumnal, eclectic, vintage, boating, whimsical, handmade, textured, fabric, florals, rifle paper co.

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? Contrary to popular opinion, a wedding should be all about the guests! Focus on how you can make the day as special for them as it will be for you. If your friends and family are having a blast, you can be guaranteed that you will be too!
