Bradley and Rachael’s Intimate Country Wedding

Photographed by Beauxartco

How we met

Via social media in late 2013 when Brad slid into my DM’s. We have basically been inseparable ever since. 

The Planning

If I didn’t procrastinate so much and have a surprise baby on the way, I’m sure it would have been a lot less stressful. I don’t know what I would have done without Bronwyn’s help in tying everything together!  Taking care of the finishing touches which brought I had ever wished for, to life.  For me, I really enjoyed researching the different suppliers.  That would have been my favourite part of the process and of course, making endless Pinterest boards. 

The Dress

Originally, my wedding dress was purchased from When Freddie Met Lilly.  Three weeks out from the wedding, it was not possible my dress was going to fit with the growing bump.  My poor mother had to make a wedding dress from scratch.  Being so last minute, I am grateful my Mum was able to create a dress including the skirt and veil. Our bridesmaid dresses were also made by my Mother.  It was quite difficult for us to find dresses to suit Winter in the Scenic Rim!  I also crashed the guys suit fitting just to purely help with colours. 

The Location

We chose Royston House as I am obsessed with horses so they had to be incorporated!  Brad and I loved the idea of spending four days together with our closest friends and family.  Eliminating the worry of travelling to and from another location. 

Advice

Must have element for our wedding was an epic photographer who really brought out the emotion in every photo. Levi from Beauxartco did exactly that.  A microphone for the ceremony! Too many times we have attended a wedding and couldn’t hear a word. For us, hearing the ceremony involves the guests.  Our wedding was intimate so we could be present and involved with all our guests. 

Like everyone says, the day goes so fast and before you know it, it’s over.  Make sure you take time every now and then to have a few minutes for the two of you. 

All our suppliers were equal in making our wedding what it was. I believe Kate being the amazing Celebrant/MC absolutely set the tone for our wedding and nailed our brief.  Phoebe our Videographer package inclusions was incredible.

Bronwyn’s advice, from Scenic Rim Bride, on all things wedding related is second to none. She really helped incorporate everything we imagined while working within our budget.
