My favourite part about Tahlia and Beau’s gorgeous country wedding was that it was incredibly personal. Tahlia’s mother personally hand-stitched their wedding date into the hem of Tahlia’s dress in blue thread for her daughter’s “something blue”. The girls made their bouquets themselves. Tahlia made the cake toppers. They were married on Beau’s parents’ property at Pine Mountain in the round yard. They decorated their reception themselves. Beau’s ring is a beautiful and unusual ceramic piece, since as an electrician he can’t wear a metal ring. Their adorable daughter Tilly was part of each stage of the day, warming hearts with her cheeky grin.
Tahlia and Beau also chose to break tradition and see each other before their wedding ceremony in what’s known as a “first look” or “first sight”. It’s a concept that’s gaining popularity – the couple choose a location and the bride approaches her groom and taps his shoulder, he turns around and they get to fully appreciate the first time they see each other on their wedding day, and react – without the pressure of lots of eyes watching! We also took this opportunity to take their bridal party portraits prior to the ceremony at the Wivenhoe Dam, which meant Tahlia and Beau got to head straight to their reception from the ceremony and party with their guests!
There was no part of their day that wasn’t beautiful, and I’m so happy to share it with you.
