Bohemian Country Destination Wedding
Bohemian Country Wedding
This bohemian country destination wedding set at Marlowe House just outside of Coffs Harbour NSW has to be THE most epic wedding I have seen in 2015!
When I was contacted by Mark (Singha) to photograph his wedding to his bride to be Lucy I knew it was going to one hell of a party!
You see Singha and I used to work together in bars in Byron Bay. He was the big guy standing at the door carding you as you went in, and I was the crazy little one behind the bar. Singha went on to become an outstanding publican in his own right, and has the coolest group of friends around.
I only met Lucy the day before the wedding, and I feel like I’ve known her forever. These two are just made for each other. He’s the milk to her shake, she’s the shake to his bake – well you get the picture!
Although Singha did the majority of the planning, with the guidance of North Coast Luxury Weddings, Lucy’s eclectic and bohemian style was reflected in the styling, complete with dream catchers hanging from the trees and photos of their adventures together.
Friends and family all pitched in in the days leading up to the wedding day decorating, constructing and putting together the flowers.
The grounds of the private property were dressed with lounge chairs made from hay bales and covered in colourful woven cloths. Chalk boards signs from William & Jane were set up to direct the guests where to go.
On the day of the wedding Kat from SweetHart Beauty made all of the bridesmaids and or course the bride look stunning, before getting dressed up herself to enjoy the celebrations. As Lucy approached her waiting groom (who may have shed a tear or two), she wore Melanie Jayne and her cowboy boots were all the way from Kansas USA. The ceremony was performed under a wooden handmade arbor by the wonderfully vibrant celebrant Sam
Guests entertained themselves with a trivia game about the couple and games out on the lawn while the bridal party headed off for photos. Having lots of friends in the local music scene, there were several live acts throughout the day including Ben Francis & Kane Cahill. It was like a festival of love and celebration!
And of course everyone danced off through the night under the fairy lights. Spectacular!!
