Heather & Mitch

This spec­tac­u­lar out­door wed­ding em­braced the stun­ning nat­u­ral Aussie land­scape

Cosmopolitan Bride (Australia) - - NEWS -

Be­fore the cer­e­mony, Heather and Mitch treated their guests to hot choco­late and marsh­mal­lows to keep them toasty warm in the stun­ning Blue Moun­tains lo­ca­tion. The bride and groom said their vows un­der a gor­geous arch lov­ingly crafted by Heather’s dad, who spent hours mak­ing it by hand. This was a big day filled with beau­ti­ful touches, in­clud­ing a guest book that posed fun ques­tions to loved ones, mak­ing for a hi­lar­i­ous keep­sake. There was also a petal toss bar, some gor­geous Aus­traliana dé­cor touches and cute Shake­speare quotes that fea­tured on all the menus. The bride even had three shoe changes – ut­ter per­fec­tion!
