Kara and Emerson

Kara and Emerson held their sweet and simple wedding at a rustic venue in Sunbury Victoria. It’s simple beauty that can often bring out the most romantic weddings!

Photographs today are by Lizzy C Photography who has captured simple, elegant moments.

Emerson and his groomsmen wore suits from Roger David .

Kara and Emerson chose Emu Bottom Homestead in Sunbury for the wedding. Kara explains “We initially found Emu Bottom Homestead because we saw Lizzy’s photographs online of another wedding she shot at the homestead. We picked the venue because it was intimate and rustic – it isn’t a ‘typical’ wedding venue.”

There was only one minor hiccup on the way to the ceremony, Kara remembers “The bridal car (Rolls Royce) got a flat tyre on the way there and a kind couple picked us up by the side of the road and drove the bride and bridesmaids for 1 hour to Sunbury! We couldn’t get onto a taxi company and were only 15 mintues late in the end. ”

The bridesmaids and bride walked down the aisle to an acoustic guitarist playing ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’. There was one surprise for the recessional, Kara explains, “We had a piper because my Grandma (Kara’s) is Scottish and it was a surprise for her. Both my Mum and Grandma had a piper at their weddings. We got piped out to the traditional Scottish Wedding song, Marie’s Wedding.”

Kara wore a Maggie Sottero gown from Raffaele Ciuca while her bridesmaids wore gowns from SwishThe Bouquets of Ascha Jolie created luscious bouquets of blooms for the bridal party.

Kara wore silver bow peeptoes from Tony Bianco.

There were many special moments during the reception, Kara recalls “Emerson (Groom) sung ‘Ribbon In the Sky’ by Stevie Wonder to me as a surprise during the reception.”
