Laura & Ryan

Meet Laura and Ryan, a couple who share a passion for the great outdoors: bush walks, rock climbing, native flora & fauna. Laura loves animals but has a particular fondness for foxes, which made several appearances during their wedding day. For this spring wedding the bush was alive with colour, wattle, banksia, native peas were bursting with yellow flowers, perfuming the air and splashing the wedding colours of green, orange and yellow throughout the day. The wedding ceremony was held on a plateau in the heart of the Aussie bush; a string trio performed classical music that echoed through the trees. It’s not often you can sit under a gumtree in an isolated valley and listen to live music. While some people have wedding bells, this section of the bush was full of bellbirds that chimed in through out their ceremony.

The reception was as spectacular, a trio of tipis overlooking the lake wowed guests. This is where Laura and Ryan’s attention to detail and DIY skills really shone: handmade signs, tags, hessian table runners, a free range and organic menu and native Australian seedlings for guests to take home. This wedding was green inside-and-out, it reflected their love for each other and their appreciation and care for the natural environment.

I think Laura sums up her day perfectly: “It was the most magical day of celebration surrounded by all the best things – the beauty of nature, our closest family and friends, great food and music and our love for each other.”
