Natalie & Joshua
THE GROOM’S FAMILY FARM WAS THE PERFECT PLACE FOR AN ELEGANT COUNTRY WEDDING
DATE 18.03.17 VENUE LAGGAN, NSW PHOTOGRAPHY ROPE & PULLEY
Natalie’s day began with breakfast in bed and reading letters from her bridesmaids, followed by yoga together in their PJs – fun! The country escape was a family affair: Josh and his dad built the aisle and deck with a little help from YouTube clips, while Josh’s mum stepped in as the planner and stylist. The newlyweds had a ‘glamping’ area with over 50 canvas tents and a party tent set up with a lounge room, pamper station, refreshments and games for guests to enjoy before the ceremony started. It truly was the perfect opening ceremony to Natalie and Joshua’s lives together.
