Jessamy + Daniel – A gorgeous DIY Farm Wedding
Jessamy and Daniel’s wedding holds a special place in my heart. Definitely a fave of the year, these two were just so darn cute. Oh young love.
I was invited to stay the night before the wedding at Jessamy’s family home as we were a little bit of out town on a property – and without reception. So with the fear of getting lost in the dark, with no GPS I gladly accepted, and it was so nice to be around this lovely family and get to know them all a bit better before the big day. I always leave weddings with a heart full, happy and amazed that I have just witnessed two people be married, surrounded by loved ones – but with this wedding, I started the wedding feeling like this!
It was a chilly day (for me anyway!) but we couldn’t have asked for better weather. The ladies were up and about quite early, getting Jessamy’s family farm ready to hold all the wedding guests. The ceremony was mid morning, and I was worried about harsh light, but the country winter sun was pretty nice to us. Jessamy had spent time making loads of pinwheels as a backdrop for their alter, lawn games and setting up their beautiful property with signs and wedding burlap.
Morning tea followed the ceremony, family and portrait photos and then came back to the lunch time reception to be warmed by so many amazing flavours of home cooked soup! It was by far one of the coolest, relaxed wedding days I’ve ever experienced. If you are a lover of DIY, country/farm weddings and love to the max, then this is the wedding for you 🙂
Jessamy and Daniel (and your families) thank you so much for everything. I definitely left this wedding the way I started it. Heart full, happy and amazed that I got to witness (and photograph) two people be married. x
