When I spotted this stunning wedding over on the beautiful blog of photographer Isabella Harrex, I knew it would be a great one to share. A couple so in love, some crafty but classy diy projects and a gorgeous location in the Blue Mountains (OZ) there is inspiration for all kinds of lovers. Dunedin based photographer Isabella Harrex has to be one of my favie photographers and the gorgeous wedding of Bianca & Cam is just one of the many gem’s in her stunning portfolio.
A huge congratulations to gorgeous couple Bianca and Cam, and a massive thank you to Bella for sharing this special day with us.
How did your love story begin?
Cameron and I started out as house mates living with a mutual friend. During the first year living together we developed a strong friendship but little did we know we both started having some serious feelings for each other. A year later Cam and his mates went on a trip to Thailand and I was also in Thailand at the same time. We decided to catch up on NYE at a Full Moon party in Koh Phangan and the rest was history. 3.5 Years later he proposed at the Trevi Fountain in Italy
Why did you say ‘YES’?
I said Yes because he was my best friend, I couldn’t imagine life without him. I know how lucky I am to have found the person that makes me happy, the person I look forward to coming home to everyday.
What was your budget? $25,000 Australian Dollars
What was your inspiration or theme for the day? Country / Vintage
What were your Save & Splurge items?
Save items were all the decorations, we had quite a few “craft” days and our splurge was the venue itself and the alcohol.
What music did you play for those special moments?
I walked down the aisle to “Groovy kind of love” by Phil Collins, this is a very special song for me and it meant a lot to me to walk down the aisle to this song. We signed our marriage certificate to “Signed Sealed Delivered” by Stevie Wonder. Our first dance was “Let’s stay together” Al Green then the father of the bride and the bridal party danced to “My Girl” by the Temptations followed by “Love’s on Top” Beyonce.
In hindsight, is there anything that you would have done differently?
If you asked me this question the day before the wedding I would have said spending so much time on making the decorations for the reception and making our bonbonnieres which were jam and honey jars which took such a long time but after the wedding was over and I think about it, the decorations and the bonbonnieres are so personal it ended up being perfect and I absolutely wouldn’t change it for the world.
What advice would you give to future brides to be?
Make sure the wedding is all about both of you and that you make the wedding have some personal touches that shows both of your personalities. And most of all, on the day of your wedding, don’t worry about making sure you speak to all your guests, they will come to you so just enjoy your day as the day goes by so quickly.
What do you love most about being a MRS?
Knowing that for the rest of my life I get to wake up next to my best friend.
