Australian DIY wedding: Amy + Stephen

categories Real Weddings

The world is full of beautiful things. And one of those things is Amy + Stephen’s wedding. Aside from them being the ultimate couple you’d want around at all times (she’s a cardiac technician and he’s a firefighter), their charming Australian cottage garden wedding is enchanting. But like most weddings, a lot went on behind the scenes to make it such a romantic fete. Remember the scene in Father of the Bride when the entire outside of the house is being remodeled? Yep, that probably best describes what happened with Amy’s dad’s barn pre-wedding date. In the end, it was a day full of love, fun, soft lighting, vintage furniture, and lots of pretty flowers (picked from her mom’s garden!).

Amy’s wedding dress was a Wendy Makin from Bella Donna, the sweet floral headpiece you’ll see a few photos down, and bracelet were from Winnie Couture, and those insanely cute, sparkly bowtie heels are Tony Bianco.

The perfect getaway car, that beautiful vintage Rolls Royce, was borrowed from a good friend of theirs.

Weeks of preparation went into clearing out all the overgrown areas of the yard and dusty old barn. The barn was blasted to get rid of all the red mountain dirt that had stained over the years, and the floors painted. Parts of the house were repainted, the gardens were tended for months by the mother of the bride, Anne, and fences were put up using a mix of new and pre-loved items.

Imbue Designs used all the homegrown lilacs, double tulips, lavender, lily of the valley, peachy snapdragons, and wild flowers from trees that Amy’s mom tended to when creati their arrangements and bouquets.
