Felicity and Steven plan for perfection at romantic rustic wedding


It took a few years of literally working side by side before Felicity and Steve turned their friendship into romance.

“We met at work, sitting in neighbouring cubicles, and were friends for years,” Felicity, 32, explains.

“As it turns out, we both had a crush on each other the whole time! We have now been
together for nearly six years.”

Steve, 35, popped the question with a poem he had written for the occasion as the couple moved into their new home.

When it came to their romantic rustic wedding, the couple knew exactly what they wanted.

“I think due to this, we actually found the wedding planning enjoyable.

“We did all of it together, so Steve was very involved during the entire process and had plenty of ideas, including wanting to build the arbor for the ceremony. ”

The Melbourne couple ventured to Tanglewood Estate on the Mornington Peninsula for their romantic rustic wedding on March 29, 2018 celebrated with 120 friends and family.

“We wanted a relaxed wedding that was essentially a big party. We also both love the outdoors, so wanted a relaxed outdoor/rustic setting,” Felicity says.

Floral accents were a major feature of the decor, in soft pastel colours to suit the romantic theme.

“I’m glad that we discussed upfront what we both envisaged and wanted for the day.  This way, we were able to make easy, clear decisions about what we liked and didn’t,” Felicity says.

“We also would strongly recommend that couples tailor the day to what they want.  Exclude the traditions that you simply don’t like or don’t want to do.”

Felicity says it’s important for couples to get to know their vendors. “You want to be happy and confident with their contributions to the day and a large part of our day running well was the professionalism and organisation of our vendors,” she says.
