“I have the entire forest living inside of me,

And you have carved your initials into every tree” -Pavana

I have become such a big fan of intimate weddings and elopements. This was my first time at The Field Berry Farm, the perfect little place if you need to slip away from the city for an afternoon!

Luke & Shae wanted to keep their special day low-key and celebrate only with their closest friends and family. From hair & make-up, to their cake and officiant – friends and family pitched in and made their contributions. The bridesmaids made their own flower crowns and have I mentioned that Shae’s, beautiful, custom made dress had pockets?!

Before the ceremony, Luke and his groomsmen eagerly awaited Shae and her bridesmaids arrival. They shared pre-drinks and a picnic together, before joining their guests.

An outdoor reception, complete with hay bails, bonfires and blankets kept us all cosy until our “Street-Food” cuisines were ready. Luke proceeded to serenade to his gorgeous new wife, before opening the dance floor and kicking off an epic celebration under the stars!

This beautiful little berry farm was completely transformed and I am so happy that I could have shared in this amazing day!

Luke & Shae

Thank you so much for an amazing day together. To you and your entourage – thank you for making me feel so at home. You are beautiful together and I’m so happy to be sharing these with you!
