Their weekend affair kicked off on a Thursday and finished on a Monday, with the wedding on the Saturday evening. “We still have people talking about the wedding, not just because it was a wedding, but the fact that everyone mingled young and old,” says Rebecca. “We also had a surprise for our guests to end a magnificent day with a display of fireworks by Aurora Fireworks.”
The pair had seven bridesmaids and seven groomsmen, making for some amazing wedding photos!

The celebrations continued at the Crown Plaza Hunter Valley, which added an elegant touch to the low-key celebrations.
