This re­laxed and lov­ing day fea­tured pic­nics, ice-cream, fam­ily and tons of fun!

Cosmopolitan Bride (Australia) - - JUST MARRIED -

Lau­ren woke up to clear, sunny skies on her big day and en­joyed a break­fast with her bridal party and fu­ture mother- and sis­ter-in-law while the boys added last-minute touches to the venue. Af­ter an emo­tional walk down the aisle with her dad and a touch­ing cer­e­mony, it was time for the re­cep­tion, which in­cluded cute pic­nic blan­kets and bas­kets filled with de­li­cious cheeses and fruits, al­low­ing guests to en­joy the re­laxed at­mos­phere. There were even boats to row on the tran­quil lake and a bon­fire once dark­ness fell, be­fore the happy cou­ple made their exit through a wall of cud­dles and con­grat­u­la­tions. Pure magic!
