A Fun-filled Forrest Affaire - Nicole & Luke
The decidedly intimate wedding ceremony of lovebirds Nicole and Luke took place at the divinely scenic location of Bilpin Resort. Nestled amongst acres of exquisitely picturesque and seemingly never-ending forest in the Blue Mountains.
Having been virtually inseparable during their adoring 5-year relationship, this devoted couple couldn’t possibly imagine life without each other! Sharing mutual values on the importance of communication and open mindedness, our gorgeous couple effortlessly decided on a smaller wedding shared with their tight-knit friends and family.
The emotional ceremony took place at the Secret Circle, a naturally formed circular clearing amongst the trees, in front of 30 cherished guests. The location itself could not be more intimate if it tried!
As our elegant care-free bride sauntered blissfully towards her gleaming groom, her stunning “Matilda” Gown by Karen Willis Holmes was snagged on a tree log. This slight glitch did nothing to deter her from enthusiastically continuing down the aisle towards her best friend and soon-to-be husband Luke.
As the cocktail-style reception kicked on with fun and frivolities, temperatures dropped below 14 degrees. Keeping contentedly cosy in our gorgeous Snow Aimer Cape and having been affectionately caressed by most of her guests who complimented on the luxurious softness of the fur, Nicole remarked it was the “crowning glory of her outfit”.
With an untraditional laid-back edge, their special day transpired exactly as they had hoped.
