Cosmopolitan Bride (Australia) - - CONTENTS -

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.

HEAD­PIECE & JEWELLERY Hair comb and ear­rings by LuLu Splen­dor (lu­lus­plen­dor.com), and bracelet and ring from the bride’s grand­mother.
