Tasmania Wedding from Boots Photography

After spending waayy to much time in this gallery of gorgeous images, I just want to reach through the screen and hug Boots Photography and Blossom & Twine. And then I want to reach through the screen and squeeze this gorgeous couple. Because between the stunning images from Boots Photography , the AMAZING florals from Blossom & Twine and this stylish couple, I’ve basically melted into a pile of wedding-loving mush. It’s image after image of all of my wedding weaknesses, and I couldn’t love it more. See it all here


From Boots Photography…This was very much a family affair. Kate’s family originally are from Launceston but everyone but Kate has moved to Brisbane which is where she met Nick, so every one travelled down from Brisbane for the wedding, along with some of the wedding vendors like myself. Kate’s sister Tegan is a wedding florist in Brisbane with the very cute name Blossom & Twine so she organised the flowers and styling/decorating of the reception with the help of Kate and the other bridesmaids and family, so the day before it was all hands on deck at Quamby to setup the reception room. The room was decorated with moss, candles, hessian chair ties, flowers, jars of chutney with personalised guest name tags, typewriter, crates with flowers (daisies, babies breath), glow sticks for dancing later that evening etc. Kate’s friend and bridesmaid also sang during the ceremony accompanied by her sister’s husband on guitar. Also another friend is a wedding videographer and he filmed the wedding.  Kate is a school teacher and her class came to the ceremony and waved ribbons on sticks as they walked out of the chapel as husband and wife, something that was really important to Kate. Kate wore a beautiful Justin Alexander gown with a ruffled collar and big skirt and one of the biggest bouquets Ive ever seen. This wedding was pretty but the love between this couple is obvious from the moment I met them two days before the wedding. They are completely smitten with each other. Then mixed with the beautiful country surroundings of Quamby Estate plus an olive/white Kombi, its just a very very cute wedding that was heaps of fun.

From the Bride… Because we had so many guests traveling from interstate and around the world, we wanted our wedding to be a big catch-up for everyone rather than a formal gathering. We wanted our guests who had all travelled so far to have a huge celebration. Any inspiration came from browsing wedding photographer blogs (and blogs like SMP!). Because we didn’t have a sit-down meal, we decided the guests might need a bit of “entertainment,” so we decided to have Mad Libs (which was binding as our guest book) and a Polaroid photo booth. As there wasn’t a lot of structure to the day/evening, our flowers also reflected this. Our florist specialises in having large bunches of eclectic flowers with scattered candles. We also were married on St. Patrick’s Day (because of the groom’s heritage), so we had a slight Celtic/Irish theme. Florals were all white/ivory with a lot of green foliage to bring out that theme.

Tasmania Wedding by Murphy Photography

I get no greater joy than seeing the smiling faces of the couples we feature day after day.  There is nothing better than having the chance to showcase a wedding that is bursting with love and merriment.  When I first laid eyes on this country beauty by Murphy Photography my heart filled with glee.  Beyond the charming DIY details, which, of course, we adore, there is so much delight between the bride, groom and all their friends and family.  It is definitely sending us off into the weekend on the highest of notes.

From Melanie of Murphy PhotographyThere’s nothing more Australian than good beer, a country setting, pretty late afternoon light and a relaxed atmosphere – and Will and Kalie combined all of these elements into their dream wedding at Van Dieman Brewing in Evandale, Tasmania — a working farm and brewery — which is also their business. In fact, the aisle Kalie walked down was created from vintage beer bottles tied to wooden stakes with twine with hand-picked flowers put in the tops of the bottles. They were married in the late afternoon light surrounded by family, friends and their little man, 1-year-old Ned, under a huge century-old English oak tree on their beautiful property. They had scattered the ceremony site with hay bales covered in a sorbet yellow cloth, vintage vases, hand-picked flowers, croquet and boules games, and a photo booth. Of course, freshly brewed beer was on hand for wedding guests as they mingled under the oak tree. Many of the details were DIY which had been inspired by wedding blogs that Kalie said she trawled in the lead-up to their big day.

From the bride… It took me a little while to get into the “wedding spirit,” as we had initially planned on a very simple and small overseas wedding. Once we had worked out that actually we wanted to say our vows surrounded by all of our friends and family in a relaxed atmosphere everything started rolling. We decided to get married under a huge old English oak tree on our farm where our business – Van Dieman Brewing – is also located. We loved the symbolism of the oak tree and the fact that we could get married where we one day plan to build our home. I knew from day one that I wanted to create a “room” under the oak tree on the lawn with lots of hay bales. However I didn’t want it to feel like a barndance.  We found some nice yellow sorbet-coloured material and that became the colour theme.

One of our more last minute DIY projects was the flowers in beer bottles wrapped in string on wooden droppers that lined the aisles. I couldn’t find anywhere that hired string lighting, so we bought it all ourselves, along with a zillion light globes. It was another thing that I just had to have, and to be honest it really set the night. After the ceremony, we rearranged all of the aisle seating to be in little clusters all around the “room”. We had a range of little wooden coffee tables that were placed with them. For drinks, we didn’t just want the standard beer, wine and soft drink. Of course, we have a brewery, so beer was a given!  We had beautiful wine from a fantastic winery just down the road, and we served Pimm’s and lemonade to start with. We had also made a  huge batch of non-alcoholic rhubarb champagne ourselves, which went down very well to start with and even better later on when it was mixed with vodka.
