a springtime australian wedding

Australia wedding

I love this super sweet wedding out of Australia of creative couple, Zoe + Evan, sent over by photographer Amanda Thorson. The floaty wedding dress is actually a prom dress re-worked by the bride and a seamstress.


From Zoe, "The ceremony took place in The English Gardens in Yarralumla, ACT. It was just a really beautiful setting just along the Lake Burley Griffin which was pretty special I suppose. My husband's great great Grandfather had a farm under what is now that lake and he (my husband) has named his band, The Burley Griffin, after it."

The pretty, offbeat and effortless-looking decorations all happened thanks to friends chipping in. Bridesmaids made bouquets. The bride collected scraps of fabric, frames and vintage table cloths to decorate and friends helped set up a photo booth the night before.

The groom's mother baked the cake and friends decorated it a few minutes before the reception.

A dear friend of the couple took care of most of the reception decorations. The bride made signs of glitter and paper.
