Ben Yew, you know I absolutely adore every single wedding you send our way (every.last.one), but I don’t think you’ve ever made me this happy. Because not only is this my dream day (seriously), it’s one of those weddings that is soooo full of gorgeous details and heartwarming moments, it’s like a special gift to all of us here at SMP. Get lost in all of the lovely right here in the full gallery.
From Ben Yew… First thing I would say is, Erin is such a gorgeous bride in her stunning wedding dress. What I love most about this wedding is the colours. There were such a great combination of my favourite colours, the nice blue sky and ocean, the green trees and the beautiful whites for chairs, dress and parasols. And because its a beach wedding, the bride didn’t wear any shoes, but instead, a nice accessory for their feet, something a little different.
From the Bride… Dean and I meet when we were very young, only 17, and have been together ever since. Dean proposed to me on my 21st birthday (best present ever) and after a very long engagement, nine years and two children we finally decided it was time to tie the knot.
From the beginning we wanted our wedding to be casual and have a very relaxed atmosphere. We wanted everyone to have a great day and night.
My advise for anyone planning a wedding would be don’t sweat the small details (you will not look back later and freak out that the flowers on everyones tables were the wrong shade of pink… hahaha) have a plan with a big picture and find a great stylist who shares your style, give them free rein to come up with some great ideas.
The theme we wanted was beach boho rustic and there were about 100 guests.
My best wedding moment was when, after all the planning and hard work, I was finally walking down the aisle with my son to marry my other half.
My favourite wedding detail had to be my dress, I just loved it!!
Everything about our day was special to us because it was exactly what we wanted, relaxed and fun. Our wedding party was the best bunch of people who kept us laughing all day (I don’t think I have ever had so much fun in one day before).
I used Ben Yew because he came highly recommended from a friend and I loved his relaxed soft style of pictures.
