An Emu Bottom Homestead Wedding~ Retro Rustic

It’s a unique experience to approach what feels like a sprawling secluded property just moments after driving through bustling suburbia. On approaching Kara and Emerson’s wedding at Emu Bottom Homestead, we drove down the driveway framed by established tall gums, the sunlight peeking through the trees and dappling the road and homestead before us. Laughter, conversation and acoustic melodies drifted over a cheerful crowd. Emerson was looking super spiffy as he kidded around with his groomsmen. I was impressed by his personal style, and how well he and the boys pulled off the 50s retro vibe. Emerson is a pretty cool muso in his own right; it seems to come with the territory!

Presently the girls arrived and the sun came out to play. Their ceremony was fun, relaxed and beautifully put together; it reflected perfectly their personalities and partnership. Many laughs were had and a few tears were shed. On conclusion, the guests enjoyed drinks as we wandered around the property, taking in our beautiful surroundings. Then it was into the woolshed for lots of laughs and way too much fun on the dance floor. Emerson impressed the crowd with his tunes, and nobody could resist getting into it, Grandma and Grandpa included!

What a day. What fun, and what a great way to celebrate Kara and Emerson’s relationship and commitment. This wedding won’t be and can’t be labelled as “a retro wedding”, “rustic” or “country chic” as some wedding magazines would try to do, because it’s obvious that their inspiration and ideas came from a multitude of places. It was an eclectic mix of both their personalities, which blended and worked together to create a beautiful reflection of their relationship. Most importantly, it was fun and relaxed, and exactly what they’d been hoping for!

    I LOVE our photos! Lizzy did such an amazing job- i forgot she was even there most of the day and night and all our guests mentioned how hard she worked all day running around after us all! The photos were exactly what I wanted- natural & fun! They are a true reflection of the day and captured all the little details and moments perfectly. I couldn’t be happier with them or Lizzy’s professionalism and fun nature, she really put us at ease on the day. Thanks Lizzy! x
