DOWN ON THE FARM AN IDEAL BACK­DROP

COU­PLE CRE­ATES SPE­CIAL MEM­O­RIES AT MAPLETON

Life & Style Weekend - - MAGAZINE / WEDDING BELLS -

IT MAY have clashed with the Royal Wed­ding in Lon­don, but down-to-earth cou­ple Cas­san­dra Dun­can and Kale Pid­ding­ton wanted a more rus­tic-style wed­ding on May 19. The bride pre­pared for the cer­e­mony at The Falls Farm’s Smith House, just out­side the Mapleton prop­erty, and ar­rived in a friend’s vin­tage car. Kale cried the minute he saw her. But there was no need for em­bar­rass­ment as they were cer­tainly among friends – 100 of them, in­clud­ing Christy Cherry who made the cake and cel­e­brant Dawn Bar­tle who of­fi­ci­ated at the nup­tials. Cassie and Kale hired the Falls Farm for the cer­e­mony and re­cep­tion, and the 12ha fam­ily-run or­ganic re­treat was the ideal back­drop for all the pho­tos of their spe­cial day by Amy Hinks Pho­tog­ra­phy. The bride bought flow­ers from Bris­bane Flower Mar­kets and, with the help of her brides­maids, made all the bou­quets her­self. She in­cluded kale in her bou­quet as a sym­bol of love for her new hus­band. The re­cep­tion over­looked one of the prop­erty’s dams. The clear mar­quee set un­der the stars, with firepits nearby and aro­mas of the Fire In The Belly pizza pro­vided a feast for the senses. The Pid­ding­tons bought a block of land at Caloundra South’s Aura es­tate in 2016 and have built their first home to­gether.
