A Vintage DIY Australian Wedding

Today’s wedding is not to be missed! I just love this bride’s vintage style and all the sweet and meaningful details they incorporated into their wedding. And these images are seriously stunning! I had the hardest time narrowing them down for you all today, but I saved my favorite for last!

The gorgeous bride Kylie shares:

Well our wedding day was the 5th day in the 5th month and also our 5 year anniversary so it was very significant to us. The ceremony was at my grandparents church in small town where they got married 60 years ago, also where my mum and sister married and cousin who was my bridesmaid still attends. My amazing Mum made the entire dress from an old 50’s pattern I had sent from america and also made my viel, bridesmaid dress, her own jacket, and all the jam, chutneys and biscuits for favours. She’s incredible!

Probably the best parts of the day were looking into eachothers eyes at the church and its like-this is it!! We had fun doing photos but it was good to get the reception started and talk to our guests. The speeches were also really good-lots of tears and not just from the girls! We had a lot of positive feedback which made us pretty happy about the whole day :)

We used sort of birds/nature and pink as theme and things that remind me of my grandma. We had 2 birds on the cake and seaside daisies for table decorations with little fairy lights and nests with mini eggs in them. We used pinecones we collected to put the place cards in for each person and some feathers to go with the boys buttonholes. I had a mix of pink carnations in my bouquet for a more garden not heaps fancy feeling. We played old music like doris day, andrews sisters, frank sinatra and elvis –our favourites. I hoped for everything to come together and be sort of in honor of my grandparents anniversary even though grandma isnt with us any more.
