This is by far my most favourite wedding I have ever been a part of! Bridie & Jack celebrated in true South Coast style, throwing a DIY Backyard Engagement Bash at their Werri Beach home in Gerringong NSW. A week before the wedding I met up with them both. They showed me around their hometown and backyard to chat about their plans to rework their simple yard into an absolutely stunning space that would truly represent their laid back style. When I arrived the day of, I was truly shocked and excited at how much she transformed the space. Bridie is super creative, decorating the marquee and home all by herself! (maybe with a little bit of help from Jack and her Best Friend Romy, who helped her scale the massive trees in their yard to hang the lanterns and fairy lights)
About an hour into the party Jack announced their exciting news – they were in fact going to tie the knot that very afternoon!! One wardrobe change later and Bridie was transformed into a bride. Dressed in a Lisa Gowing gown from Storybook Bridal, paired with a flower crown and a vibrant bunch of blooms from Elka’s Garden, she was ready to head off down the isle to marry her best friend.
The guests were a mix of close family and friends and almost everyone was unaware of their master plan to get hitched that afternoon. Some may have had a hunch, but there were some pretty surprised faces in the crowd!
You may also see quite a few appearances from their young daughter Willow. She kind of steals the hearts of everyone she meets.
Needless to say this wedding was an kick-ass celebration of everything that represented this legendary duo.
