Friday I'm in love : Adam + Laura



This week we bring you the rustic chic wedding of Adam and Laura, beautifully captured by Marina Ridgway Photography. Scroll to the bottom of the post to spot the picture of the couples very cute son Jensen leading the bride down the aisle! Awwwwww!









Eat, drink and be married!











Handsome!


... even more handsome!







 









Theme

Rustic Chic

Proposal 

Adam proposed on the balcony of our Abu Dhabi hotel whilst looking out over the lights on our last night away. We had spent all our money on our holiday and had to share a Heineken to celebrate!

Special Memory 

Watching our son Jensen happily run down the aisle with his little flag. The helicopter flight up to the reception was amazing and gave us a bit of time out together. Also listening to the vows Adam had written, which he surprised me with on the day.

Special Thanks 

Our family and friends who helped with everything from designing and printing the invitations, to sticky taping the confetti cones together. We couldn't have done it without them!

The boys from soapbox weddings who stayed very late and were more than happy to assist with any requests above and beyond.

The beautiful Marina & Rob from The Bunyip Scenic Rim resort, for whom 'no' never seemed to be an option no matter what the request. They also managed to find a way to overcome both blinding heat and gale force winds!
