Megan & Casey’s Chilled Barn Wedding

After securing the beautifully rustic Coronation Hall for their reception, Megan and Casey went exploring to a nearby private property, where they asked the owners if they could host their wedding ceremony. With Roy Byrne behind the lens, the Brisbane couple pulled off a quirky and colourful party, on the day of their anniversary no less. Not a bad way to celebrate 11 years together!

Everything about this wedding was meaningfully planned and executed, from the poem written and read by one of their mates, to the ceremony itself (aside from the legal parts) being run by another dear friend. “We didn’t do a rehearsal as we wanted to hear everything for the first time on the day.” Megan shares. “It was amazing, emotional and so meaningful, I get goosebumps thinking back to it.”

With a barn venue like Coronation Hall, it would have been easy to go the rustic route, but these cuties wanted something different and recruited their pal Jess, of She Wore Daisy pulled together the perfect theme. “We wanted to have a stand up canapés style reception, and really just throw a party.” Says Megan. Jess sourced amazing furniture from Hampton Event Hire and we created a modern, bright and festive feel for the hall.”

Megan is lucky to have hair and makeup artists as mates, so she let Chantelle Spurling and Alice Waugh work their magic and we're loving her upside-down braid and bun 'do!

Megan and Casey got the whole family involved in their DIY efforts, with Casey’s mum crafting over 100metres of colourful tasseled garlands, a good friend built their beautiful love seat and Megan designed the invitations!

Jess of She Wore Daisy did a darn good job of transforming a rustic space into something a little more vibrant and she orchestrated much of the planning too - including furniture hire, plant hire, lighting and flowers (courtesy of Edna May Floral Design).

Daniel Moore, the designer behind Alter Ego is responsible for Megan’s gorgeous two piece gown, it was the only one she tried and it was love at first sight. In fact, her laid-back ways even earned her a nickname! “Everyone was laughing because it’s just like “Yep one boyfriend - tick, one venue - tick, one dress - tick.” I think the ease of my decision making was making everyone a little anxious, they decided to nickname me BrideChiller.”
