Tanya and Leigh met just over three years ago at Falls Festival, while waiting to watch Angus and Julia Stone. Within a couple of weeks they had been camping, within a couple of months they had travelled Europe, and within a year they had bought their first house together.
This couple wanted to let the stunning location be the focal point of their wedding. After looking at a heap of different venues they decided on King Parrot Cottages, a place where they could create a wedding that reflected their relationship and their personalities. Tanya loves flowers, so blooms became one of the most important styling features on the day. After finding the perfect florist, all of the other details were based around their floral colour palette of white, green, blue and soft purple.
This gave the general styling an earthy and native feel, which blended perfectly with the surrounding landscape. ‘All of the stationery was created with craft paper, and the invitations were a custom design laser cut booklet.
The food was served on terracotta plates, the table and aisle runners were hessian, and the cake stands were three tree stump slices at staggered heights to create a deconstructed tier,’ Tanya said. If you’re not one for bright colours, then this wedding is the perfect example of how to keep things natural and down-to-earth, without compromising on beauty and style.
