A private woodland ceremony complete with a Stella York gown from Essense Of Australia and intimate details like tables handcrafted from reclaimed wood barn wood, to the arbor where the Bride’s dad married them, to the wildflower centerpieces, it’s the type of celebration you’re bound to love. Andrew Mark captured it all to share and it’s waiting in The Vault!


From Andrew Mark PhotographyCharis & Ryan’s stunning wedding was a DIY wedding done right. Their private wedding ceremony in the woods was something to be truly coveted by any bride with any love for the outdoors. Their rustic theme carried through every facet of the event. From handmade harvest tables made from reclaimed barns from the area, to the arbour where the bride’s dad married them, to the wild flower centre pieces picked from the families private estate.

Nearly everything was made by Ryan himself and even the food from the event was grown on the families local farm.

Charis the Bride, a passionate horse ride, included a small session with her pride and joy. All photos were captured in or around the family property while guests enjoyed an intimate party in the valley near the woods.

A truly inspirational wedding from top to bottom and all DIY from the property or local vendors!
