Kristen and David keep it simple at idyllic Byron Bay wedding

Wedding: 28/09/2015

Posted by Kate | 25 March, 2016

When her boss told her not to come in the next day, Kristen Todhunter feared the worst, little did she know future fiance David Nguyen was planning her dream proposal.

David, 31, had arranged everything with Kristen’s work and whisked her away to Byron Bay for a day of romance, pampering and, of course, the big question.

The Brisbane couple then returned to Byron Bay for their simple and relaxed nuptials on September 28, 2015.

Their Byron Bay wedding was celebrated alongside 70 family and friends at the coastal spot’s famed Fig Tree Restaurant. “Everything was so natural, free flowing and filled with love,” Kristen, 30, says of the day.

“We made sure we made time for each other and had time to party with each other. After all, it was our day and we made sure we spent it together.”

The couple also paid tribute to their beloved miniature dachshunds, from the invitations to the dog-shaped gingerbread given as favours, and even David’s cufflinks.

A vintage caravan transformed into a photo booth added another element of fun to the celebrations and the executive assistant and lawyer partied the night away with guests at the venue’s gorgeous outdoor area overlooking Byron Bay.

A good old-fashioned hippy van acted as wedding transport. “Nothing says fun more than a multi-coloured hippy van blasting ’70s disco tunes,” Kristen says.
