Autumn affair: Karen and James’ chilly Hobart wedding

Wedding: 11/04/2015

Posted by Kate | 13 January, 2016

Soon after meeting, Hobart pair Karen Macnab and James Fagg travelled to Queensland together, learning in days what it can take other people months to discover – that they were meant to be together.

Months later Karen, 29, and James, 31, made it Facebook-official and began laying the foundations of a long and happy life together.

After finally completing the deck around their summer caravan, James presented a photo book showing the couple’s journey so far.

“When I got to the end of the book it asked what our next adventure would be and he got down on his knee and presented me with the most stunning sapphire ring, handmade by a friend of mine,” Karen says.

The pair held their Hobart wedding outdoors on a chilly autumn day on April 11, 2015 at Runnymede House, New Town in front of 90 friends and family.

The reception followed at Rydges Hobart where two friends took over the DJ decks and kept guests up and dancing well into the night.

“Our day was perfect because it was a beautiful reflection of us, our love and lives together and of the wonderful people in our lives who all helped in some way to make it an amazing celebration.”
