This DIY boho styled wedding was celebrated in country Queensland on the brides families farm. The vibe of the day was magic and a pleasure to photograph.
Having only two months to prepare for this wedding, and doing everything themselves, this family had to work pretty hard to get everything together but it turned out perfect! The bride wanted boho styled bouquets that looked like a bunch of flowers had just being picked from the side of the road. That wasn't too difficult because the flowers HAD just being picked from the side of the road but the brides Auntie is a florist so she arranged them to look so lovely. She also did many macrame laced vases with bunches of wild flowers too, made the boutinettes from flowers near the brides Grandpa's work and laced some other wild flowers to make some pretty flower crowns for the bride and the flowergirls.
Jacynta's veil was her 'something old' - given to her from a friend and then customised for Jacynta's look with lovely lace handsewed in scallops around the edge. This complimented the gorgeous boho styled wedding frock that just happened to be two dresses sewn together to make one very pretty number with a price tag of $70!
Jacynta's dad and lots of helpers made a boardwalk and patio for the aisle and ceremony cover. Jacynta's Mum made bench seats for many of the 280 guests. The family picked up couches from the side of the road and op shops, together with rugs and cushions to scatter around the chairs and make it all look very boho on a budget!
The catering was all organised by the bride's mother and many helpers came up early, camped around the farm and pitched in to help get the wedding organised!
This Queensland wedding was different than my usual Adelaide Hills or Adelaide Wedding. The humidity was quite high but there was a lovely cool breeze and the evenings were quite balmy! We sat around the bride's family meal table that is permanently on their porch and chatted away and watched the children play.
