Naomi + Mason // A Dubbo Wedding

February 2018 // Local couple Naomi and Mason were married in February at the picturesque Lazy River Estate. Adamant about doing their wedding “our way,” they succeeded by having a beautifully rustic and laid-back affair that reflected both their personalities perfectly. If you need more convincing, check out their amazing cake - a formal, elegant white design coupled with a gaming theme at the back!
This was both the bride and groom’s second wedding, having previous spouses pass away from terminal illnesses. Both Mason and Naomi believe that their wedding “shows that even after great and tragic loss, new love can be found. Life is too short and we are living our life to the fullest.”
Surrounded by family and their five children, we think it was the perfect celebration of life, love and quirkiness.

Kat + Tim // A Dubbo Wedding

April 2017 // With the world still riding a wedding high after Harry and Meghan’s big day, we couldn’t help but show off another amazing local wedding with it’s own dose of #couplegoals.
Kat and Tim were married at the rustic Toongi Hall, on the outskirts of Dubbo. The couple told us, “we didn’t want to spend a mint to have a fun wedding, so over the year we collected decorations, made signs, and personal touches to make our wedding like us.
Toongi [Hall] had the perfect atmosphere for our country [wedding]. We are both campers so there was plenty of camp spots for us and our guests.”
From Kat’s stunning dress to the native florals and picturesque country setting, their special day really did have it all. To top it all off, they were surrounded by their favourite people, filling the day with plenty of love and laughter. Sounds like perfection!

"Better then Lego"
Our wedding day was the most magical day of our lives.

Nicole + Aaron // An Orange Wedding

October 2017 // As far as weddings go, this one stands out from the crowd! From lawn games to super chic styling, everything about Nicole and Aaron's day was magic! We spoke to Nicole about her wedding journey:
When you get engaged you start to research ideas online, take way too many screenshots and finally make your secret “Wedding” Pinterest album public for the world to see. It was so great to see our ideas come together for our wedding, it was better than we would have imagined, better than the screenshots and definitely better than the “Wedding” Pinterest Album. We used local vendors and only had our closest family and friends attend. Everybody was full from the amazing food, danced way too hard and drank plenty to celebrate our wedding! The most special part of the day was seeing each other at the aisle, writing our own vows for one another and hearing them for the first time just before we said “I Do”.
