Jamie and Matt’s love beats the heat at romantic rustic wedding


Jamie was a bride on a mission to pull off her romantic rustic wedding to Matt in just four months.

The pair, aged 28 and 33 respectively, married on the Australia Day long weekend earlier this year – January 27 to be exact. “Armed with my hot glue gun I threw myself into making the decorations and what I couldn’t make I convinced Matt to make, or we sourced locally,” smiles the bride.

The couple had fallen in love with Yarra Valley Estate in Victoria and decided to hold their ceremony and reception there. “Their open air chapel and commitment to eco-conscious weddings we fell in love with in particular,” explains the brie. “It was the first place we went to and nowhere else could compete.”

Jamie, Matt and their 55 guests braved the 34 degree heat – and although challenging, Jamie says it was just bearable to use the chapel. “Had it been 2 degrees hotter we wouldn’t have been able to use this stunning chapel,” says the bride. “We made the decision to set up outside the morning of the wedding and Matt, his best man and our dads helped to make this happen before cooling off with a dip in the pool!”
