An Intimate Rose Garden Wedding by Fields & Skies Photography

I fell in love with this wedding from the moment I saw the gorgeous peach cottage, not to mention the pretty images from Fields & Skies Photography. Held in the prettiest of rose gardens, this casual and intimate wedding is filled with lots of pretty details that will surely bring a smile to your face. And if not, the infectious smiles of the adorable and fresh faced bride and groom definitely will! Read on for more of all the prettiness and their beautiful story.

“Justin organized a surprise dinner at Fraser’s Restaurant in Kings Park. I was a bit suspicious as to why he’d organized such a romantic evening with no occasion behind it. So throughout dinner Justin was very romantic… telling how much he loved me. I was waiting for him to whip out a ring!! But he never did. After dinner we went outside and sat looking over the city. Again I was waiting for him to get down on one knee, I was so sure he was going to do it because every moment was perfect, I didn’t think he could beat it. But he didn’t…he took me home. I was devastated and felt very silly for thinking he’d propose. So he dropped me home and I went to bed. At 3am I woke up to a phone call from Justin telling me to quickly come downstairs. I freaked and ran to my door, when I opened it there were candles and rose petals everywhere! I walked downstairs and there was Justin in a heart of candles. Here I was in my pjs and Justin in a suit looking adorable. I walked up to him and he gave an incredible speech and then got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife! He tricked me!

“My bouquets were of baby’s breath. It’s a delicate and innocent flower that I just adore. I loved the simplicity of them. At the reception the arrangements had touches of purple.”

“My most memorable moment was walking down the aisle, holding my dads arm so tight. I felt like I was floating. Then I got to see my man for the first time, what a hottie! We also wrote our own vows and hearing them was so special.

“The cottage we had the ceremony and photos in front of was a beautiful rustic peach colour. It had blue shutters and amazing flowers surrounding it. Beautiful!”

“I found my wedding gown on Ebay! I was searching for fun and fell in love with a dress. I decided to risk it so I ordered it and it was perfect!!! The best thing was it only cost $90!”

“Purple was featured throughout the day as it was my eldest sister’s favourite colour. She passed away two years ago, so this was my way of having her with us on our wedding day. The men wore purple ties to match my bridesmaid dresses, purple flowers were amongst the baby’s breath in the reception arrangements. Plus I had the best purple shoes!”

“We went for the DIY wedding theme. It made the day so much more meaningful and personal to me. I wanted it to be a tad rustic and vintage, so we visited thrift shops & antique shops. I collected 90% of the décor from them, including an old typewriter & telephone.”

“My advice for couples would be that the day is meant to reflect you and your partner. It’s all about celebrating your love for one another. Focus on your what makes you both happy and the details will fall into place.
