Between the picturesque country setting, the gorgeous afternoon light and the love that radiates from every one of these frames by The Roberstons, we can’t decide what we love most about Caroline and Jeff’s old dairy farm wedding.
The old dairy farm has been in the bride’s family for over 50 years and not only did Caroline spend a large part of her childhood there but it was also the place where Jeff proposed, making it the obvious choice for their wedding venue.
Adding to the sentimental value of the venue, the bride’s father made various custom pieces for the wedding using timber milled from cypress trees that grew on the property including an arbor, bar and cake table.
With the addition of romantic blooms by Flower Jar and furniture and lighting by Harry the Hirer, an old barn on the property was transformed into a swoon-worthy space where guest feasted on shared food by Blake’s Feast and the couple’s favourite Rob Dolan wines.
These two looked anything but stressed on their big day and they say the trick was ensuring that they took time out to be together and have fun. “A couple of days before our big day, we were both feeling really stressed so we went for a run together and then spent the rest of the night making up our wedding dance in the lounge room. It’s one of our favourite memories of our wedding.”
Hand-stamped leather luggage tag favours made by the bride and groom, screen-printed napkins and laser cut bamboo menus by Peep Designs and The Make Lab added just the right amount of polish to the rustic table settings.
Wearing an Amaline Vitale strapless gown with custom lace top in French polka dot lace and navy suede pumps by Salvatore Ferragamo, Caroline made one stunning bride.
Jeff and Caroline are photographers themselves, so choosing someone to capture their special day was an important decision. The couple say, “We have become really good friends with Dave & Shobz (of The Robestons) over the last couple of years and they were the perfect fit for our wedding photographers. They have the most amazing outlook on life, love and how to capture a couple’s special day to perfectly reflect them.”
Come the end of the night, the bridal party wouldn’t have to go far for a good night’s sleep thanks to on-site bell tents set up on the property by Home Camp.
"The whole Blake’s Feast team were amazing!" Caroline shares of their caterers. "From helping with the planning process through to the delicious food and friendly service, we could not fault them."
The layered chocolate mud cake with caramel popcorn and Ferrero Rochers by Fig & Salt was a highlight for the bride and groom, and we’re pretty sure their guests felt the same!
