Lise and Luke’s rustic Midginbil Hill wedding is the kind that so many dream of – a relaxed, weekend-long celebration with family and friends on a picturesque working cattle farm near Byron Bay.
Bonnie Jenkins was the lady behind the lens and the couple were delighted with their choice. “If you want natural photos that capture the moment and draw on the beauty of nature, book her now. She has an eye for detail and is definitely an artist!”
There is no question Bonnie had plenty of pretty to work with – a ceremony beneath a big old fig tree where guests were seated on hay bales followed by a dramatic storm and a reception in a barn decorated with flowers, lace and candles.
Lise says, “We knew early on we liked the idea of a weekend long wedding where we had time to catch up properly with family and friends. After visiting Midginbil Hill it just felt right. The venue is in a beautiful part of the world and it offers different accommodation options so all guests can stay on site if they chose.” Luxury tents from Glamping Days Hire Co provided on-site accommodation for the bride and groom and some of their guests.
As for advice, Lise urges brides not to underestimate the value of hiring a day-of coordinator. “In hindsight I wish I had employed someone. Our friends and family were amazing but given we had a weekend long event I think I would have been a little less stressed and able to enjoy it more had we hired someone to be in charge for the day. So if any readers are tossing up whether to hire an ‘on the day coordinator’ or not I’d say go ahead, there’s still going to be plenty for you to do!”
