The wedding planner becomes the bride for this boho rustic wedding
This is a country boy meets city girl love story. Herself an event planner, Vanessa was feeling the pressure of planning the perfect wedding day. This relaxed and romantic wedding was exactly what the couple wanted.
Chris is a country boy and the most genuine man. The type of guy every girl would wish to become her husband. Vanessa is a city girl. An event manager from Melbourne.
“Every day I wake up, walk into the bathroom and there it is. He’s put toothpaste on my toothbrush. A fresh towel hangs over the shower. In the kitchen, a cup of tea waits for me. These are little things, but it’s the little things that make me fall in love with him over and over again.
We made time that night during the reception to have photos taken. We had a moment of being together, just the two of us, with our reception in the background, overlooking everything we had worked so hard to achieve over the past year. These are some of my favourite photos.
The entire weekend was perfect and concluded with breakfast the morning after the wedding, thanking our guests before they headed home. Although my dad was not there to share the most special day of my life with us, that day, I inherited a new family, and a new dad.
Vanessa, the city girl moved to the country with her country boy….”
What’s your most important piece of advice for creating and maintaining a strong relationship?
Always go on dates with each other, even when you’re married.

What sort of style did you envision for your wedding day?
Boho, vintage and rustic all in one.
What was your favourite moment from the day?
Chris and I took time that night to get photos of us sitting by ourselves having a moment overlooking the venue and what we had worked so hard to achieve.

Pallets, signs, favours, suitcases.
Any tips that you can give to future brides?
Get a videographer because I’m so glad we did. You literally relive that day every time you watch your video. It’s not the same with photos.
