Andrew & Liana were very clear from their initial enquiry that their wedding was going to be different. So much so, that they sent across the beginnings of a “Wedding Survival Guide” that they were drafting up to help their guests through their very personal celebration – with less of an emphasis on tradition and more of an emphasis on their love, their loved ones and the fun and good times to be had by all.
They left no stone unturned when it came to injecting their personalities into their celebrations – it was heart warming and totally unique. A true labour of love. Everything you see below was carefully planned and put together by them with the help of friends and family. They ventured to thrift shops and vintage markets slowly bringing everything together – they made their own bunting, decorated their own reception tables, hung their own lighting, sourced their own vintage lawn games, Andrew’s mum made the cake and brought it up from Victoria, made a brooch bouquet and styled their own outfits – no surprise at all considering their engagement session was equally amazing.
Andrew even fashioned his own art-deco wedding ring from century old buffalo horn – yes, buffalo horn – to symbolise the tree that they wed under! Read more about that on his blog here.
Helping them make the day possible was Mario of Mario’s Kitchen who styled the most irresistible degustation I’ve ever seen on the back of an old Chevrolet pickup truck. His catering throughout the day and night was second-to-none. And the leftovers? Well, Andrew & Liana didn’t forget that either. The following morning, all the excess food was donated to OzHarvest for people in need.
They even had their own EK Holden decorated for the occasion – a classy getaway car complete with rustic suitcases.
Let your eyes take in the beauty of Andrew & Liana’s personal and intimate wedding and let your heart be filled with the same warmth and happiness we all shared while celebrating their special day. Their day was also featured over on the White Magazine blog recently, so take a look over here for the feature. Congratulations Andrew & Liana and thank you for sharing your hearts with us all.
