Sophie and Baden celebrated the forthcoming arrival of their baby boy by tying the knot surrounded by their closest loved ones in an intimate celebration at home. Making use of their picture-perfect backyard in coastal Sydney suburb, Avalon, they said their forevers amongst lush greenery, with photographer Jimmy Raper capturing all the romance, and the cutest baby bump!
Being an interior designer Sophie was able to achieve exactly what she envisioned, creating a day that reflected their style. She shares, “I wanted to achieve a ‘less is more’ feeling with greenery, white and pink florals, linens, rustic woods and gold accents.”
Small and simple was key, and the resourceful couple kept costs down by using furniture and design elements they already had at home, could make themselves or borrow from friends. A family affair in more ways than one, the groom’s brother made their wedding arch from recycled timber, with his grandmother decorating with foliage foraged from the backyard.
Moving to the deck for their reception, Blonde Butler provided a grazing spread and delicious dessert table for guests to help themselves to. For their intimate family lunch, the couple set up a long table provided by bespoke hire Simply Seating, and decorated with blooms and candles for the cosiest of vibes.
