Soraya & Blake’s Bohemian Backyard Wedding

Soraya and Blake’s bohemian-inspired wedding played out on the in-law’s expansive bushland property in an intimate and relaxed affair. Captured by Jazzy Connors, the couple exchanged handwritten vows with a Turkish rug underfoot and a sprawling foliage canopy overhead.

Chasing the bride’s childhood dream, the couple knew their wedding should be an outdoor affair. “Since I was a little girl I’ve always wanted to get married outside, so when Blake mentioned this big tree at his parents’, it was perfect,” says Soraya.

Guests moseyed down to the property’s tennis court after the ceremony, where the large party of 190 celebrated with a delicious Persian feast. Everyone pitched in with the DIY effort to create the couple’s magical, bohemian vision. With their tribe of helpers, Soraya and Blake handcrafted the raw timber tables, menus and place cards, cloth napkins, leafy wall installations and elements of the menu. We’re most impressed!

A bouquet of poppies in pink and white plus plenty of greenery from The Arbour & Co was the perfect compliment to Soraya's relaxed two-piece number by Damsel in this Dress.

The groom looked suave in an Uberstone suit, whilst the groomsmen dropped the jacket for a relaxed shirt and pants look from Industrie.
