Breakfast with love: Georgina and Andrew’s rustic country wedding

Wedding: 23/04/2017

Posted by Anna | 1 November, 2017

Georgina Leeder finding a note in her cereal the morning of her wedding day was no accident.

Her dashing groom, Andrew Henshaw had asked her bridesmaids to hide the message, among others, around the room on April 23, 2017. “I kept finding gorgeous and funny notes from Andrew which my bridesmaids had hidden around; in my cereal and in my flowers, which made me even more excited for the day,” explains the bride, 25 of her beau, 27.

The pair from Melbourne met at a music concert back in 2011. Andrew had bought a ticket last minute, so the meeting was suggestively meant to be. When the pair each lost their group of friends they found themselves bumping into one another … then kissing and dancing to the music! “The rest is history,” laughs Georgina.

Their rustic country wedding at Emu Bottom Homestead in Sunbury, Victoria, with 70 guests was styled in burgundy, navy and a tough of gold. “I don’t think either of us took our eyes off each other for the entire ceremony,” explains the bride. “We also both loved our photo shoot with just us, as it was very relaxed and it was a chance for us to finally talk and have some quality time together while frolicking in the sun-kissed fields.”
