{ po and dan . summerlees estate wedding }

“And the two will become one flesh. Since they are no longer two, but one.” – Mark 10:8

Gloomy skies, bright flowers and two people who love each other very much.

Dan and Po are anything but your ordinary couple and this was perfectly displayed through their wedding day. For this couple, marriage meant so much more than a bunch of people watching them say I do. For them, it meant forever. And they did not take forever lightly. Every inch of their day was styled by the couple themselves. From the flowers to the tables, to creating a personalised dance track for later on in the night. Dan and Po (with the help of their bridal party) took their creativity to the next level to create the setting for the day of their dreams. They incorporated some traditions, which were special to them and scratched the rest. The most important thing to this couple was their love for one and other and the fact that they had a whole day to celebrate it with the people they love the most, the way they wanted to. And above all, whom they wanted to glorify… Their God.

{ bec and pete . tocal homestead wedding }

The Central Coast of NSW can feel like a pretty small place when you’re growing up. It feels like you’ve met everybody at least once or twice, but sometimes fate saves meeting someone as special as the person that you’re destined to spend the rest of your life with until it’s just the right moment in time. Like two fruits ready to fall from the tree! That’s how Bec and Pete met. Though they may both give you their different recounts of the story of the night they met, the story that really matters is the one that has led them this point in time – to their wedding day! Pete was in the midst of a stint living and working overseas and met Bec whilst he was home on a visit. Bec was waiting for just the right motivation to move to London and when she met Pete she knew had a serious reason to book her ticket. He was kind, fun, full of spirit and stories and he made her laugh (which was definitely Bec’s weak spot). Pete saw familiarities in Bec that matched his own – a sense of adventure, a social butterfly and a spice for life. Together they spent the next few years exploring and living in different parts of the world, making friends and memories as they went and growing closer as they adapted to each new environment and circumstance. Pete and Bec believe communication is the key to a long lasting relationship, as well as having the ability to understand what makes one another happy and allowing each other the freedom to do just that. Their wedding is an expression of themselves, a homestead wedding to represent a love that is home grown but also with a world of influences. The DIY efforts reflect their ability to work hard at something they both feel passionate about, and the thousand and one mutual decisions that have to be made to get the elements just right! But Pete and Bec also know that the day would not have been made possible without their friends and family rallying behind them to help with the set up, to fill the walls of the reception with love and laughter and to really make the day bloom!

Love is a song you can sing forever….

{ caitlyn and shane . tasmania wedding }

Shane and Caitlyn are high school sweethearts. Shane was the bad boy, Caitlyn the Disney Princess loving sweetie. But they clicked. He made her laugh, and she grounded him. They grew together. They were a pair. When Caitlyn moved away to Melbourne to go to University, they made long distance look easy. A love that flourished from 16 year old innocence and excitement could not be faulted. Years later, when Caitlyn graduated Uni, Shane saw his moment and proposed. Hiding a message in a bottle along the beach in their home state of Tasmania, Shane led Caitlyn to a poem that would start their next chapter together. Engaged for 2 years, they planned their Tasmanian wedding from Melbourne. Caitlyn and Shane spent their time collecting, purchasing and creating treasures for their big day. The amount of DIY and love that has gone into this wedding is mind blowing. Every little detail had a special story…flowers from neighbours gardens, hay stacks stacked and arranged by Caitlyn’s Dad and Shane to create a breathtaking barn, cakes and treats made by family friends, the first dance song sung by Caitlyn’s sister, plates collected from every op shop they ever passed…every little piece had a meaning. And as a result, every little piece added up to tell their story. Caitlyn and Shane’s wedding reflected their relationship and everything special to them. It was them. You could see them, and their love, all around. What a perfect way to start the rest of their days.

{ po and dan . engagement }

“I have found the one whom my soul loves”

A giggly and dreamy first few months of ridiculous amounts of fun, bringing out the best in one and other and standing strong through the worst, lead Dan and Po into realising that they were wanting to start an adventure together. Waiting a year for Po to finish studying before they began a relationship, tested their patience but ended up being something that only strengthened them as a team as well as making every detail from then on feel that much more special.

You’ll often find Po making a beautiful mess in the house from creating floral pieces. You’d find Dan with some form of musical instrument in his hand or writing lyrics. Their passions only drew them closer together as they encouraged and inspired each other to chase their dreams. Po, never missing one of his gigs and Dan, getting up at 4am to be her flower market buddy.They decided that a love that was patient, fun, encouraging and always supported was the type of love they’d want to last forever.

On a sunny Saturday afternoon Po was lead to the very same cliffside that she had been two years prior, where Dan had asked her to be his girlfriend. At her arrival she found him holding his guitar ready to serenade her with a song he wrote, that would end in him asking her to be his wife.

‘Forever together isn’t long enough for these two.. but it involves combining their passions into one big dream, traveling the world and embracing the journey together as a team, trusting God with their destination and falling in love more each day. ‘
