Cass got more than she bargained for when she bagged an $8 Scoopon for six weeks of CrossFit classes, where she happened to meet the love her life! She recalls, “I still remember to this day the moment I walked into the gym at 6am and saw Simon – scruffy hair, old gym tee, trackies, ugg boots and all.” The chill pair threw a suitably chill wedding, with the talented Alex of Motta Weddings behind the lens for their relaxed, organic affair.
Wanting the day to feel like ‘a really big life-changing picnic’, the couple opted for a venue with a great outdoor space and blank canvas interior. The Estate Trentham in Victoria proved the ideal spot to create their laid back wedding. Cass shares, “We scattered rugs and cushions over the backyard and hired games for our guests to play – Jenga was a massive hit.”
With a beautiful venue to start, the couple kept styling minimal. A cute hand lettered ‘shit just got real’ motif by Kate Pullen was printed to plywood by the bride’s own studio, Wood to Wall. In-lieu of a seated dinner, and keeping with the relaxed vibe of the day, guests were served delicious entrees and mains from Paleo food truck Craved by Caveman.
Cass and Simon’s advice to others tying the knot is to choose like-minded artists and suppliers who get your vision. “We were blessed with such an incredible array of vendors who really made our day as special as it was, so putting effort into picking the right people definitely paid off for us.”
