Today I am thrilled to share this stunning Vintage Boho Wedding at Cammeray Waters with pastel and navy details.
The Bride, Vanessa is a wedding planner so that’s a whole heap of added pressure but the day went beautifully.
Images were captured by T-One Image.
Bride Vanessa tells us a little bit about their wedding journey…
Tell us about you both as a couple…
Chris is a Country boy, and the most genuine man, the type of guy every girl would wish to become her husband.
I am a City girl, an Event manager from Melbourne, and Chris’s first girlfriend at the age of 26.
Every day I wake up, walk into the bathroom and there on the bench is the toothpaste on my toothbrush everyday…
A fresh towel hangs over the shower for me to use, another thoughtfully placed item from Chris.
In the kitchen, a cup of tea is on the bench for me…
These are little things, but it’s the little things that make me fall in love with him over and over again…
Tell us about the Engagement…
I was always planning other people’s Weddings, always the wedding planner never the bride… then one December evening Chris asked me to spend the rest of my life with him!
Suddenly I was planning my own Wedding, there was pressure as an Event Planner for our Wedding to be perfect.
Tell us about your Wedding Day…
After over a year of planning our Vintage/Boho Wedding, the day finally arrived, the weather was a perfect 26 degrees.
I felt calm and relaxed, no nerves just pure excitement for the day ahead.
We wrote each other a card to read that morning, it was sweet to have some words from each other to read before we met at the aisle.
My dad passed some years before, I had my shoes made in London to include something old, new, borrowed and blue.
The final touch to my shoes was a brooch with a photo of my dad on his Wedding day so he could still walk me down the aisle when he was no longer with us to do it in person.
I walked down the aisle to a live acoustic cover of Can’t help falling in love by Elvis Presley (My dad’s favourite song)
I started the walk down the aisle, I felt happy to finally see him and have him see me, he looked so handsome.
I stood at the altar and looked around, I was in awe, everything we had planned for over a year had come together perfectly.
The vintage suitcases, the organic greenery, his boys, my girls, the lace just wow, everything was perfect!
We ordered over 1000 metres of fairy lights for our reception, the room was so pretty and elegant with vintage lace tablecloths and fairy light curtains draping the room, wood slices as centerpieces with jars of boho flowers and tealight candles.
Chris and I made time that night during the reception to have photos taken, we had a moment being together just the two of us with our reception in the background overlooking everything we had worked so hard to achieve over the past year.
These are some of my favourite photos.
The entire weekend was perfect, the weekend concluded with a breakfast the morning after the wedding thanking our guests before they headed home.
Although my dad was not there to share the most special day of my life with us, that day, I inherited a new family, and a new dad.
Vanessa, the City girl moved to the Country with her Country boy….
Tell us about your wedding gown and how you chose it…
I knew I wanted lace. I fell in love with my dress, it was about the twelfth dress I tried on.
I knew it was light unlike all the other dresses I tried on.
What sort of style did you envision for your wedding day?
Boho, vintage and rustic all in one.
What was your favorite moment from the day?
Chris and I took time that night to get photos of us sitting by ourselves having a moment overlooking the venue and what we had worked so hard to achieve.
Any DIY décor elements?
Pallets signs, favors, and the suitcases for cards.
What’s your most important piece of advice for creating and maintaining a strong relationship?
Always date, even when your married.
Any tips that you can give to future brides?
Get a videographer because I’m so glad we did.
You literally relive that day every time you watch your video, it’s not the same with photos.
