A surprise proposal takes some serious planning and in the case of this couple, Alex plotted to pop the big Q on a spontaneous Sydney trip for Denise’s birthday. It was during the drive she noticed their hire car just happened to have a playlist of all her fave songs and when they reached their destination – a cliffside in Sydney Harbour National Park – a surprise picnic had been set up! With suspicions well and truly brewing, Alex finally pulled out a poem he had written and preceded to get down on one knee. Be still our beating hearts!
These sweethearts didn’t just stumble upon their venue, Secrets on the Lake – it’s a favourite coffee spot of Denise’s, so when they found out that the rainforest retreat hosts weddings too, they were sold! With oasis-like gardens and cabins perched high among the trees, this gorge venue made for a picture perfect backdrop and Kait Photography captured some stunners.
Wanting to channel the simplicity of a by-gone era, the couple opted for a relaxed and intimate affair, with Denise saying “We just wanted something simple, whimsical and in the rainforest.” With wildflowers, rustic decorations, early century tunes a bridal party reminiscent of the gals from Picnic at Hanging Rock, we think they totally nailed it.
