'Two peas in a pod..meant to be...a dream come true...a perfect pair..' ...all phrases that have been used to describe Elise and Stewart by various friends and family. They met in 2013 and it was clearly love at first sight. Within 7 months they were engaged, and within 16 months married.

The wedding took place at Elise's parents gorgeous property in Echuca, and boy did Echuca turn  it on for the occasion! Clear blue skies, sunshine, crisp clean air..there were no complaints. The theme of the wedding was multicoloured. The bridesmaids wore bright floral dresses, and everything was decorated with all the colours of the rainbow. Brightly coloured lanterns, flowers, vintage mismatched plates on the table and vases for centrepieces. A stunning rainbow cake with hand crocheted multicoloured flowers made by the bride's endlessly talented Mum, and masses of handmade bunting..sewn by both the bride and the groom-to-be! 

The setting was no doubt absolutely stunning, but it wasn't just that that made the day perfect. Elise and Stewart exude happiness, enthusiasm and positivity. They bring a smile to everything they do and everyone who crosses their path. The vibe at their wedding was no different. Visitors came from far and wide to celebrate with them and there wasn't a single person who wasn't smiling. The ceremony was fun and filled with laughter and happy tears.

In case you didn't love them enough already..Elise and Stewart made a donation to Australian Marriage Equality in lieu of bonbonniere, as an acknowledgement of all the couples who do not yet have the right to marry in Australia.

 

Elise and Stewart it was such an honour to be a part of your big day. Wishing you a lifetime of happiness together.
