Today’s lovebirds met when they were just 18 and say it was love at first sight and they haven’t left each other’s side since! Fast forward to their big day and Danni and Rob celebrated their love for each other at a rustic and relaxed wedding at Camp Sunnystones in Bacchus Marsh, Victoria. Surrounded by family, friends, gorgeous country styling and tipis, there was a definite party vibe in the air, and it was all captured by Hey Babe! Photography. Below, Danni details how their dream wedding came together, from the proposal to the planning, and her advice for those soon to tie the knot.
On the day Rob proposed, I was waiting for Rob to come from work and it was a few days before Christmas. He phoned ahead and said he’d be a bit late. When he got home he asked to give me my Christmas present early. He blindfolded me and walked me out to the backyard and my son took my blindfold off. And there was Rob down on one knee! it was such a surprise!
We married at Camp Sunnystones in Bacchus Marsh. Our wedding was a big rustic, casual, fun party!
My dress, from Zavana Bridal, was amazing! It was a form-fitting beaded dress with intricate patterns. I knew it was the one when I put it on. My consultant was so patient. I think I tried on 20 dresses!
Rob’s attire was exactly what I pictured him in. Chino pants, navy blue blazer with a red bow tie.
Camp Sunnystones was perfect for us. Self-sufficient with country views. Our ceremony was outside in the sunshine and very casual, just like Rob and I.
We walked down the aisle to Ed Sheeran’s ‘Tenerife Sea’. It was Rob’s choice.
Our ceremony spoke lengths about who Rob and I are as a couple and included our family. We have two boys who were with us the whole time and we chose our vows and kept it light!
My favourite photo from the day has to be the one of Rob and me walking down the aisle and our loved ones throwing the flowers at us with big smiles on our faces.
We had big tents erected for the festivities and it was amazing!
Our photographer, Hey Babe! The photography was amazing! Alysha made us feel comfortable and had a plan of action ready to work through on the day. She accommodated any request we had and made sure we had a fantastic day.
We wanted everyone to have a night to remember. We chose everything ourselves after careful deliberation and wanted the right atmosphere on the day.
Swans Lane Event Hire had amazing items we used for our special day!
Brins Cakes and Sweets made our wedding cake. Everybody still raves about it.
y advice for future newlyweds? It’s your day do what you want to do! Rob’s and my wedding were uniquely ours.
Ms Floral Says: What an atmosphere! I can just feel how fun this day was from your words, Danni, and the incredible imagery by Hey Babe! Photography.
