In an outdoor oasis, under a simple white arbor and surrounded by 100 of their closest family and friends (and pooch, of course) Renae and Liam tied the knot.
We’re lusting over all the images of their big day, captured oh-so-beautifully by one of our absolute favourite photographers, Aleksandar Jason.
The couple met at a mutual friend’s house party in 2012. While Renae wasn’t interested at first, it only took a little persistence from Liam and a riverside picnic to change her mind in just a couple of days!
The pair love the outdoors, travelling and going on new adventures together. In 2016, they got engaged in beautiful Lake Como and this year they’ve planned an extended honeymoon in the USA.
Renae and Liam’s wedding was simple, uncomplicated and totally romantic, using their love of the outdoors as inspiration for their special day.
‘As soon as we saw the location, we knew it was perfect,’ says Renae.
‘A secluded little garden, covered with lots of trees and greenery, made it our own happy place with all our family and friends.’
Renae described the wedding theme as “simplified rustic,” which she achieved with a colour palette of white and green, and natural textures like wood and fresh foliage.
Every decoration from the chairs to the aisle runner and even the signing table followed the understated style. The flowers were also a stand out element of the day with a mix of white Roses, Chrysanthemums, Disbuds, Blue Gum, Baby’s Breath and Peppercorns.
Along with the styling, the couple say that the bridal party entrance was one to remember.
‘All the guests were standing up and around the dance floor to greet us as we came in,’ says Renae.
‘Each couple had an entrance to Crazy in Love by Beyoncè, but when we came in at the end, we went straight into our first dance to Ho Hey by the Lumineers. It was great to have everyone up and watching so close to us.
‘After our dance we went straight into our bride and groom speech – it was so special to have all our family and friends right there for this moment instead of seated at the tables.’
Renae and Liam’s wedding was the perfect reflection of their down-to-earth relationship. We hope you enjoy perusing the loved-up shots below as much as we did!
