Are you feeling blue? Well, no more after you meet today’s blissed-out newlyweds – Rose and Alex! Because not only are you going to fall head over heels for the fresh soft blue colour palette (and the hydrangeas, one of the moodiest but most beautiful of flowers), but you’re going to fall in love with them!

The pair met at work; Alex, a paramedic, and Rose a radiographer crossing paths in the Cardiac Cath lab at John Hunter Hospital. “Alex likes to say we met fixing a broken heart” laughs Rose. The pair took over Rose’s parent’s farm in the country for a wedding that was every bit as elegant and as dreamy as they’d hoped. “We wanted a wedding in the country, but not a country wedding. I wanted the day to feel romantic and classy but laid back. Plenty of good wine, beer and food.” Good friend Bonny Wythes invited along to capture every moment.

The couple’s story begins with this beautiful film captured by Moon & Back Co.

Rose went for a romantic off-the-shoulder gown, a piece designed by Esty Style that she found “with the help of lovely Amy” at Love Marie Bridal Boutique. The finishing touch was a special adornment added to her bouquet and special earrings.  “I pinned my Grandma’s pearl hat pin to my bouquet, something two of my sisters had done on their wedding day also.  The earrings I wore were Mum’s earrings from the 80s! They’re gorgeous gold orbs from the 80s.”


The couple were married on Rose’s parent’s farm just outside of Canowindra. The ceremony took place in Rose’s Mother’s garden before the reception in a clear marquee set on the tennis court.

Rose’s vision for fresh flowers, was brought to life by Botanica Flora. She shares “The gorgeous Tess pulled together my vision of white, blue and greens. My main flowers were hydrangeas and they managed to find the perfect light blue hydrangea for my bouquet.”

Rose walked down the aisle to the Schitt’s Creek version of “Simply The Best” performed live by Shelbey Clements.

The ceremony, held in the garden, was officiated by Edwina Peach. Tells Rose, “we kept the ceremony short and sweet, so didn’t have any readings. We did acknowledge our parents and thanked them for their support of our marriage.”


The pouring rain on the day meant not quite everything went to plan – the memories though? Were perfection! “It absolutely poured with rain for the two hours between ceremony and reception,” remembered Rose. “We had planned to have canapés in the garden but instead all crowded into my parent’s house and admired their new kitchen. It made for an exhilarating exit from the ceremony as we all rushed to take cover. It’s made for some beautiful photos as well. Special mention to my brothers-in-law who changed into work gear and dug trenches to redirect water away from the marquee!”

“Bonny went to school with me in Canowindra and is now a talented photographer” explains Rose of the couple’s photographer. “Bonny has a relaxed approach and made us all feel at ease. She was my first choice for photography and we were so lucky to have her.”

With a marquee at home reception on the cards, Rose and Alex handed the planning of their day over to The White Place, a vendor they regard as one of their favourites. Shares Rose  “We had on-the-day coordination taken care of by these guys. Nat did an outstanding job of running the day, especially during minor flooding of the marquee.”


Choreographed by a dear friend, Rose and Alex took to the dance floor to a song by one of Alex’s favourite artists “Desiree” by Sean Rowe.

Congratulations Rose & Alex! What a stunning celebration we’re so honoured to share! Thank you both and thank you to Bonny Wythes for sharing today’s beautiful wedding.
