The average cost of an Australian wedding comes out to roughly $36,000 (from moneysmarts.gov.au) . No, that's not a joke (I truly wish it was)! BUT, if you get married at home or in a park that number can drop SO much lower! Not only that, a DIY backyard or park wedding can be absolutely gorgeous.
Donna and Jerry chose to have their wedding at her parent's stunning house in Crows Nest, Qld. I am SO glad they did, because check out that view! Donna's mother planned and planted all of the gardens of their new home especially with the wedding in mind, and they were STUNNING. This wedding was pure perfection, and proof that you can have a beautiful wedding without laying down oodles of cash!
The wedding was a family affair, not only for the ceremony, with brothers, sisters and their children taking the honours, but all the guests were related to Donna and Jerry too!
I LOVE the casual elegance of Jerry's outfit, so suitable to the Queensland weather, and check out those gorgeous floral hoops, made lovingly by the bride for her special day
I asked these two what their favourite part of the day was, and Donna said 'The look in Jerry's eyes when I said I do' . Isn't that what marriage is all about!!
Thank you SO much for choosing us to be a part of your perfect and awesome wedding day Donna and Jerry, we wish you and your family a lifetime of happily ever after.
