Tom + Ellanor’s DIY Tasmania Wedding from Adam Gibson

There’s nothing we love more than a wedding filled with DIY, but we certainly don’t expect the bride and groom to do all the work themselves the way Tom and Ellanor did! This fun loving couple made it their goal to throw a fun and relaxed party that everyone could enjoy and that’s exactly what they did. From beginning to end, Tom and Ellanor worked together designing their own invitations and creating quirky DIY signs! Looking through Adam Gibson’s photos was like being in a fairytale thanks to the surrounding natural beauty and a lovely surprise that you’ll just have to scroll down to see.


Bride, Ellanor shares, “It was my birthday, and I knew Tom was taking me on a picnic (which luckily for me isn’t out of the ordinary). We went to Tieve Tara Gardens in Mount Macedon. The garden owner directed us to a beautiful secluded part of the gardens near the lake. We were enjoying our picnic when four people dressed in red came out of the bushes, I was pretty confused when they stopped right in front of us and pulled out instruments! They were a string quartet and Tom had organized with them to play our song – Beloved One by Ben Harper. I nearly died! Then he just popped the question (between tears from both go us). We then asked the quartet to play the song again so we could actually listen and enjoy them.”

“I had seen the dress in a magazine and it was the first one I tried on. My mum and the shop assistant both cried! I did go and try on a few more but my dress was so comfortable and easy to wear. I could dance, eat, walk and have fun without worrying about the dress.”

“Tom designed and had my engagement ring made overseas. The diamond is from Belgium and the ring was also made overseas.”

“We already considered ourselves very committed to each other, we got married so we had an opportunity to say how much we loved each other in front of all our friends and family. To be married makes us a family, we feel as though it separates us from our respective families we grew up with and made us our own unit. It means we are officially stuck together now, and we couldn’t be happier about it!”

“We wanted a simple, elegant, rustic feel - but not country. We wanted to appreciate the natural beauty of the property and gardens. I went for mainly whites and natural colours and the boys blue suits were the only colour in the bridal party. It complemented the greens in the garden and the timber in the barn beautifully.”

“We ran down the hill and climbed the fence into the field next door (very attractive in a wedding dress!). While we were having some photos three huge horses walked over to us and started nuzzling into us. It was a surreal and magical moment that set the tone for the rest of the night.”

“Dont stress! No-one will notice the little details that don’t go to plan. Try to be super organised, we were organised weeks in advance and it meant we had time to enjoy the week leading up to the wedding. We spent one afternoon at a winery with some friends that had flown in and lots and lots of time with our families. Remember what the day is about, after all, the beginning of your marriage, not just holding a wedding!”

Country Meets Bohemian Wedding Inspriation from Vanessa Repupilli

The second we laid our eyes on Vanessa Repupilli’s images, we fell in love. We are in absolute awe of the way the model’s auburn hair catches the light and the surrounding Marche Region countryside. The combination of country and bohemian with a touch of vintage may be our new favorite theme! Lucky for you all, we have the entirety of this romantic shoot below.

Jay of Qlix Photography shares, “Beauty is temporary, but love lasts forever. Imagine the reaction the groom will get when he sees these beautiful boudoir photos on the wedding day – imagine how much more he would want to see his bride after seeing the beauty of his bride. I cant think of a more romantic gesture than capturing the beauty before the wedding day with timeless and soft imagery to later share with your husband.”

Hello from Sydney, Australia! We’ll Be Right Back!


Hello peachies!

I hope you’ve all been well.

Over the past month, the hubby, little peach and I packed up our lives in Hong Kong, said some tearful ‘goodbyes’ and jetted to the place I’ve always called home, Sydney Australia. There has been SO much to do and still SO SO SO much to do, to say it’s been a tad hectic would be a major understatement.

To be completely honest, I have been utterly exhausted and still am. Just to give you a bit of an idea of what’s been going on, the week before we left Hong Kong was totally crazy. Believe it or not, on our way to our farewell drinks with friends (which was subsequently cancelled), the hubby had to be taken to the emergency due to extreme muscle pains. And if having a hubby who wasn’t allowed to do any heavy lifting during a big international move wasn’t bad enough, the little peach fell seriously ill with salmonella. This then led to little to no sleep and the little peach needed her mommy more than ever. So, blogging, emails and Simply Peachy and Simply Peachy Baby just had to wait. As did all the loveliness I had in store for you peachies – the beautiful real weddings, sweet engagements, pretty inspiration boards and fun DIYs.

I’m now happy to report that the hubby and little peach have both recovered, but the little peach is having a really hard time with the move and settling into her new surroundings so sleep still seems like something from a past life. Our boxes are also arriving soon so expect a lot of hair pulling and frustration whilst we try to unpack and squeeze nine years worth of boxes into our temporary abode with a clingy little peach around my leg. Fun stuff huh?!

So dear peachies, I am so sorry for not being around and the perfect blogger that I should be, but I do hope you understand. Please bear with me during this taxing time. I promise all the peachy goodness will be back once life is a little more settled and sleep is within sight. Simply Peachy and Simply Peachy Baby will be back with a bang from our new home in Sydney, Australia.

I am super excited about this move and cannot wait to bring you the new and improved Aussie Simply Peachy really soon! If you’d like to be a part of these exciting times or have a wedding, engagement or shoot to submit, be sure to drop me an email to see how you can get involved!

But for now, it’s back to the joys of relocation admin, unpacking and cuddling the little peach. We’ll be right back!

I can’t tell you how much I’ve missed our daily doses of peachiness!
