Thanks to some coincidental run-ins and a little (ok, a LOT) of stalking on the bride’s part, Holly and Jarrod first crossed paths in their hometown of Geraldton, fell for each other and the rest is history. After pulling off the mother of all proposals involving a staged photo shoot to capture the moment, the pair tied the knot in Bremer Bay, with good pal and photographer Jenna Mason along for the ride.
With beautiful bushland surroundings and a river nearby, Bremer Bay is every bit the quaint coastal town and according to Holly, it was decided as the location of her wedding long before Jarrod was ever in the picture. “The venue was chosen when I was about 12,” she laughs. “Bremer Bay is a tiny little town on the south coast of WA and has been a family holiday spot for my family for generations. I grew up with my family in this location and it means the absolute world to us.”
In keeping with their laid-back natures, Holly and Jarrod knew the kind of wedding they wanted. Their friends and fam made up a large portion of the vendors and they incorporated a fun Mexican vibe throughout the day. “We love simplicity, so having a big extravagant wedding was never going to be our thing,” says Holly. “But having a big casual outdoor party with a side of wedding was.”
Despite an unrelenting downpour on the day, these sweethearts were unfazed. Dancing in the rain to a killer playlist of rock classics – think Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones – the after party went well into the night.
