Carla Micucci Photography is serving up a big ol’ dose of adorable today, and I couldn’t be more excited about it. It’s coming by way of this sweet, vintage inspired fête styled so perfectly you can’t help but swoon, celebrating a couple so cute you just want to kiss them. It’s one fabulous way to spend your Friday, and you can soak up every sunlit image right here in the full gallery of gorgeous.
From Carla Micucci Photography….Shannyn and Jason’s vintage/1950′s styled wedding was held at the picturesque Glen Ewin Estate in Houghton, South Australia on a gorgeous summer afternoon. Surrounded by their close family and friends, they created a memorable and magical day to remember for all. Their reception followed at the Pulp Shed which was styled perfectly to incorporate the vintage theme with David Austin roses, dahlias, berries and and yellow billy buttons in assorted glass bottles which made up the table centre-pieces. The flowers were made up beautifully by Mary Wauchope. Personalised lace from Etsy was wrapped around Shannyn’s flowers with both Jason and her name printed on it. Shannyn’s wore a classic and elegant Nicolina gown from Bridal on Pulteney and the Bridesmaids wore classic black vintage inspired dresses. Hair and Make-up were done superbly by Sarah Haddon from The Swoon Effect (make up) and Chloe Reed (hair). 1950′s Bentley’s drove the bridal party to the ceremony which overlooked the lake. The gorgeous twin page boys held matching flags and chalkboards were used to write up messages of love.

After spending some time pouring over this wedding captured by It’s Beautiful Here and the Bride’s sweet description below, I pretty much think I would get married at the Boyd Baker House if I had a destination wedding do-over (to the same hubby, of course). It looks like a dream venue – complete with kangaroos - and this adorable duo deserved nothing less. They planned a wedding where they could be surrounded by family and friends, and they got that, and so much more. See it all here.
From the Bride…The only pre-requisite to our wedding was that we were surrounded by family and friends and that it had a communal feel to it without being too formal or ruled by curfews by your traditional wedding venue. As we had family coming from France and New Zealand it was important to give them a truly ‘Australian’ experience and after visiting the Boyd Baker house – we knew this was the right place. How can you go past a place fully furnished with funky 60s furniture and kangaroos passing by early each morning? We also loved that the Boyd Baker was dog friendly so our little French Bulldog, Gypsie, and my parent’s dog were able to attend! It was also important that our nieces and nephews were there and they had a ball playing on the old style tram outside and big tree swing during the night.
We put the extra effort into making the day special by putting little projects together in the months leading up to the day – like designing the wedding invite, sewing the napkins for the dinner service, putting our wishing well, and guest books together, and bringing bottles of champagne home for the purposes of ‘taste testing.’ We were blessed to have our parents, maid of honour, and best woman support us all the way and be ready to tackle any problem on the day.
Our favourite moment of the wedding apart from the ceremony and the surprising speeches was actually having our friends and family camp onsite and wake up the next day worse for wear coming into the main kitchen in search of coffee and toast.

I’ve said it once, and I’m absolutely positive I’ll say it a million more times – I adore, love, can’t get enough of elopements. To me, they are the epitome of romantic ways to say I do. Because that’s when the love between the new Mr. & Mrs. really gets to shine. And boy do these two lovebirds shine. One look at the gorgeous images captured by Figtree Pictures and it’s safe to say, my love for elopements is holding strong. See it all here.
From Figtree Pictures… Caitlin and Tyron eloped to beautiful Byron Bay with just their immediate family in tow. Set on stunning Wategos Beach, the ceremony was simple yet beautiful. They exchanged vows with tears in their eyes, and with their nearest and dearest looking on. It was perfect.
