Rustic Country Farm Wedding in Western Australia

Can I let you in on a little secret? I’ve been waiting for this wedding. You see, from the moment the oh-so talented Ben Yew sent over this couples’ engagement session I just knew their big day would be one for the books. Well, once you take a look at the gorgeous images below, you’ll know that is just the case. Charming with that rustic flair that makes our heart all warm inside, this gallery was definitely worth the wait. See even more here.

From Ben Yew Photography…Kale & Sam are such cool and awesome couple, from their engagement session, which is also featured in Style Me Pretty earlier, to their wedding. I really love old barns and vintage details and they have it all!

This wedding is very interesting because they had a special guest, a skeleton called Malcolm. The family farm looks amazing and the ceremony location in an old barn blends so well in the country settings.

From The Bride…A humorous suggestion by my now mother in law would seal this venue selection. Over the course of the 4 years with my partner and visiting his family farm I had never entered the old packing shed on the 40 acre property. After a quick 5 minute walk down into the gully, Kale, my MIL and I entered the building and we instantly knew it would be a unique place to get married with a vintage and rustic charm. It looked nothing like it did on the day, and many special people made the magic happen and our dreams come to life.

We changed our venue 3 times leading up to the wedding. Originally we loved the idea of having an outside wedding, under the stars, and I was obsessed about having it on a farm, I think I even joked to have it all at my in laws farm, but I found a local hall that changed my mind. I was never 100% certain however and my then fiancé admitted he didn’t like the venue, so we changed to a local winery that had a very rustic touch. After paying a deposit and being 3 months out from our wedding, the owner called me up to say she was having reservations and was closing down the winery, so I quickly opted out of that. In the end we did a full 360 degrees and ended up having the entire wedding on my in laws farm, which meant we saved money on expenses such as venire hire and alcohol prices.

Even before getting engaged I had always loved the idea of a vintage/rustic wedding. There is something heart warming about vintage things, something that modern decorations can’t bring. They all hold stories, they all have memories, they all have character and I thought having a wedding full of vintage pieces would be a good conversation starter for our guests. I started collecting items 18 months before the wedding and I was fortunately given a lot of items by family and friends.

Kale proposed to me on our then boat after 4 years of dating. We were on the Murray River near the family holiday house. He suggested going to dinner by boat and I had not the slightest clue what was about to happen. After about 5 minutes he pulled the beautiful pearl and diamond ring from his pocket. I was so astonished all I could say was “oh no, oh no, oh no”, before quickly saying yes! After a near crash incident shortly after, it made for a very memorable night.

Elegance

From The Bride…I’ve always been a fan of Johanna Johnson’s designs! Her timelessly elegant designs marry both simplicity and grace, and it’s her attention to the small details in her designs that truly make each piece so special. That’s why the first appointment I booked when I got engaged was at Johanna Johnson’s flagship store in Paddington!

As soon as I tried The Everley, I knew it was the one that I wanted to marry my husband in – it was effortlessly elegant with its delicate beaded straps and low back detail and most importantly, fit me beautifully, like it was designed just for me!

The dress fits me beautifully. I never felt more beautiful or more feminine then when I wore The Everley.

My engagement ring – Ever since Breakfast at Tiffanys, I always dreamed of a tiffany proposal. I mentioned this to Chris once and whilst he laughed at me at the time, he must have remembered because he proposed exactly as I always dreamed.

I chose the colour scheme of ivory, yellow, navy blue and green. Given we were having a garden wedding, I wanted the bridesmaids to wear a colour that really popped and I was lucky enough to notice a yellow lace dress in the window at Review. The girls loved it so the rest they say is history!

I chose P Johnson, Carmina and Vanda Fine Clothing because of their obvious passion for their craft – Their attention to every small detail for their suits, shoes and ties are unparalleled in the market.

As Suitshop is a part of the P Johnson business, their passion for stylish suits is still there, albeit, slightly more affordable. It was a no-brainer for our groomsmen.

We loved Little Peach’s accordian style invitation – so we asked them to help us design something truly unique for us, incorporating our wedding colours of blue and yellow as well as penguins.

Sandy Horton, the owner of Naomi Jones, is truly special. She took in the small details that we wanted and then translated these to the floral arrangements for the bridal party and the decorations at Simmer on the Bay. For Sandy, nothing was too hard!

We wanted a garden wedding and Vaucluse House was the perfect location for this. The gardens are beautiful all year round and perfect for that intimate wedding ceremony we were looking for.

We really wanted a venue that represented the two of us. Simmer on the Bay provided us with a blank canvas on which we could design our dream reception setting. With its high ceilings, beautiful timber finishings and stunning Sydney harbour views, we fell in love with the venue the first time we visited it.

Our cake was modern with beautiful flower detail. As soon as we saw it, we knew it was the wedding cake we wanted. Also Patricia’s cakes taste divine – hazelnut with mocha truffle creme YUMMMMMY!

My favorite part of the day was walking down the aisle with my dad and seeing Chris waiting for me at the end! His reaction was truly amazing. I’m extremely glad that I could share the moment with our loved ones and friends.

Chris said his favorite part of the day was seeing Minji for the first time as she walked down the aisle. It was that moment where I finally sank in that “I am getting married… to this amazing woman”.

The speeches were our favorite part of the reception! We were truly humbled by the beautiful words everyone said regarding us. There were tears, laughter and beautiful stories!

Adrian Tuazon-McCheyne is an artist. He’s calm, friendly and the consummate professional. Adrian put us at ease and always worked with us rather than directing us to pose! His photos show his artistry and we’re truly blessed that he was there to capture each and every special moment of our wedding day.

Our atmosphere was us. Relaxed, fun and all about the small details.

From Katie GrantWe drew inspiration from the natural, rocky coastline and built the shoot around the natural palette of the shore. The sweetheart table is nestled into the large rock formations where waves crash underneath, creating a beautiful symphony. The table is adorned with light sea blues and sandy golds and the plates are set with each person’s name calligraphed on a translucent capiz shell.

The focal point of this shoot is the bride’s jaw-dropping and gorgeous seashell crown, a fresh and inspiring take on the bohemian floral crown.
