Arain­for­est back­drop at Beer­wah Hide­away was the ideal set­ting for the rus­tic/boho wedding of Simone Jack­son and Sam Phillips on Fe­bru­ary 16.

The cool, calm and col­lected cou­ple chose the venue’s rus­tic shed for the in­ti­mate but laid-back cer­e­mony, be­fore par­ty­ing with their 72 guests in the func­tion room.

Simone and Sam, of Jim­boomba, chose non-tra­di­tional out­fits that they felt more com­fort­able in and gave their bridal party sim­i­lar free­dom in their at­tire.

They had no bridal ta­ble, in­stead choos­ing to join their fam­ily and friends at a guest ta­ble for the re­cep­tion af­ter a photo shoot with pho­tog­ra­pher Brook Hill, of @brook­be­hindthe­lens.

The mag­i­cal day was the cul­mi­na­tion of their wedding jour­ney since Sam’s pro­posal.

“We were in the process of building our

tiny house in Bris­bane dur­ing Jan­uary 2018,” Simone re­mem­bered.

“Af­ter spend­ing the day work­ing on the house, Sam and I de­cided to re­lax with some wine and nib­bles, over­look­ing the dam, in­side our half-built home.

“Af­ter play­ing some mu­sic on our por­ta­ble speak­ers, Sam switched the song over to one that was quite fa­mil­iar.

“It was a song that has been very spe­cial to us since meet­ing back in 2011.

“While I watched Sam be­gan to fum­ble ner­vously through the pic­nic rug, I started to get an idea of what might be hap­pen­ing.

“He pulled out a small wooden box and popped the ques­tion with our two dogs by our side.

“It was sim­ple and low key.

“A beau­ti­ful mem­ory that we’ll have for­ever.”
