Right now is a the mega post day of Stephanie and Joseph! There is so a lot packed into Stephanie and Joseph’s wedding- they cautiously believed by means of each and every detail and worked so tough over the four months of organizing to get every thing into shape for their wedding day. (They even raised the floor level of the barn, plugged the water leaks, rebuilt the doors and built a tiny wooden bridge over the little creek!). But when it comes down to it, it was purely a reflection of who THEY are, what THEY really like and it oozes through every single photograph.
Along with a buffet of sweet treats, the wedding cake (a homemade 4 layered white chocolate cake with pistachio butter-cream filling) featured a nod to Stephanie and Joseph’s adore of animals “Being animal lovers, we decided to have Joseph’s dog, Snoopy, as our ring bearer. Her presence in the ceremony was extremely critical to us. We carried on the dog theme with the dog groom and dog bride as our cake toppers. They were custom created to replicate Snoopy by an etsy seller. My mum also made doggy bone-shaped shortbreads for the favours!” Stephanie handmade the tree branch chandelier from branches lying around the farm and had it strung with fairy lights. The couple reused an old cupboard and filled it with handmade tissue paper pom poms, photos of themselves and specific memories while restored window frames held the guests seating arrangements.
Becoming eco-friendly didn’t quit with the ceremony, in fact Stephanie and Joseph’s mission to make their wedding as eco friendly as attainable only got much better! “Food was really essential, provided my addiction to cooking and eating. We also believe in living sustainable lives and tried to incorporate sustainability into as many aspects of our wedding as possible. So we had organic and 50% vegetarian food without any red meat (red meat consumes significantly a lot more water and energy to create than white meat). We usually consume at Mondo Organics and offered their organic food philosophy, they were an apparent option to be our caterer.
The sustainability theme also extended to making use of second hand items as considerably as achievable for decorating the venue (90% of props had been sourced from markets, op shops, people’s backyards, dump shops etc), using recyclable drink cups and napkins and so forth. We chose to have favours that will final a lifetime (potted plants). However we also supplied property-made cookies and tea (I really like my tea!) for interstate and overseas guests who couldn’t take residence the plants.”
The couple completed their wedding with a campfire- which includes marshmallow roasting!
