Jen and Lachlan’s Relaxed Backyard Wedding

Words by Tamarin Morley
August 28, 2013

So we might be just a little bit in love with this couple! While many of us like to think we’ll pull off ‘relaxed and carefree’ on our wedding day, Jen and Lachlan actually nail it. The beach babes and their guests got bare foot for the ceremony and then kicked on to their DIY-adorned backyard for the reception, where they served fairy bread and rainbow popcorn!

Jen tells us “We wanted our wedding to be very informal so we held our reception in our garden. We used potted flowers instead of cut flowers in vases and many decorations were handmade and recycled. We also held it during the day so it was more like a cocktail garden party.”
