Intimate Wedding on Cooroy Mountain

It doesn’t get much better than a secluded, intimate wedding. And these sunny yellow nuptials on Cooroy Mountain are further proof that if you’re surrounded by nature and all the people you love, the recipe for all-out gorgeousness is pretty much guaranteed. Karen Buckle captured some cute as can be moments from the day. You can see all the loveliness here.

From the Bride… Sean proposed to me shortly after his return from working overseas for 18 months. Our long distance relationship had been extremely difficult but had further proven to both of us how strong our love for each other was. We decided to have a long engagement and two years later it was time for our special day. We are both very laid back people and didn’t want to have a huge, expensive wedding. We decided to plan for a stress-free, intimate celebration with our closest family and friends. Of course it was difficult not involving all of our extended family and friends but everyone was very supportive and understanding of our decision. We chose to hold the day at a holiday house in the Cooroy Mountains which allowed us to have the ceremony, reception and accommodation all in the same place. This was a huge bonus for us and added to the seamless running of the day. Guests were able to begin the celebrations whilst we had our photos (also on the property). As the house is set on 100 acres and has a few bedrooms we were able to have most of the guests stay the night to continue with breakfast the next day. As the wedding was on a private property we completed all of the planning, styling, catering and preparing ourselves. Although this seemed like a big job, we had lots of willing helpers and it actually added to the excitement of the day. One of my sister’s friends did an amazing job of helping out during the day which allowed our guests to relax and enjoy themselves without having to be put to work. It was an amazing day that ran perfectly without any problems! It was so nice to share it with our closest loved ones and we felt lucky that we were able to spend quality time with each and every guest. We couldn’t have asked for a better, more ‘’us’’ day! Receiving our amazing photos a few weeks after the event allowed us to relive our special day and share it with our family and friends. Karen did an amazing job and allowed those that weren’t there a true picture of what the day looked and felt like.

From Aparat Photography… Bec and David’s wedding at a rooftop bar in Melbourne’s CBD, was an intimate affair of around 60 guests. Under a high ceiling with sweeping views of the city seen through the tall glass walls, a single long table was adorned with flowers and candles running down the middle.

An emotional ceremony was held, before everyone sat down to a cozy dinner and later danced the night away as the sun set behind the city’s skyscrapers. There was no cake or bridal waltz and Bec was walked down the aisle by her best friend. This was not about following any strict traditions, but more about being surrounded by their nearest and dearest.

Bec and Dave are a couple with so much soul and energy and we were caught up in their day and found ourselves so overjoyed to see them marry. Two very kind-hearted and welcoming people who instantly put anyone they meet at ease (Bec embraced us so warmly when we first met). This was as genuine a marriage as you could get and this is what makes our job so wonderful, documenting these stories.

Romantic Farm Wedding

This wedding is what I would call overflowing with pretty.  But beyond all of the gorgeous details (and, believe me, there are a lot of them) is a day that is allll about the happy.  From the (obviously awesome) friends and family laughing the day away to a bride and groom who are literally beaming with joy, it’s a true blue love fest from start to finish. See every gleeful moment captured by Luke Simon right here.

Farm

From the Bride… It may be hard to believe, but our plan for the wedding day started out as a throwing a simple but big party to celebrate with all our our wonderful family and friends.  Angus would joke along the way that all we needed was a bowl of chips, beers and some good South Australian red for later in the night to keep most of our guests happy!

Somehow the ‘simple wedding’ part got lost along the way, but we would not change it for the world. What we ended up with was the most incredible day put together by some amazing suppliers, but mostly by some serious imagination and hard yakka from our family and friends. We simply had the best day.

Having just relocated to Sydney at the time, we were very reliant on family and friends to help turn a paddock on the family farm into a wedding venue, which was no small feat, but the challenge made the day all the more rewarding.

Sharing good local food and wine are incredibly important to us both and we chose to serve all courses as share platters to give the sense of being at a big family dinner at the farm. The fare that was served up by Stuart Oldfield and his team from Handmade Catering (from a very makeshift paddock kitchen) was simply incredible and the food was paired perfectly with beautiful SA wines made by my uncle, Tim Gramp Wines.

There are far too many special moments to mention but here are a few: having the aptly named ‘The Bridal Express’, my grandfather’s cherished and beautifully restored 1934 Diamond T bus, as wedding party transport (the only hiccup was it getting stuck it first gear but made for some entertaining photos of the groomsmen pushing it out of a tight spot) and Angus’ Granny doing a special reading, the same reading she read at Angus’ parents’ wedding.

Not even the unseasonably cold weather could dampen the party spirit evidenced by the prowess on the d-floor until the early hours of the morning.

The photos really do speak for themselves, an incredible day captured by the most incredible (and the coolest to boot) photographer, Luke Simon. We only wish we could do it all again!
