Love conquers all: Jasmine and Mack’s rustic vintage wedding

Wedding: 19/03/2016

Posted by Kate | 1 July, 2016

Walking down the aisle at a young age, Jasmine Cooper and Mackenzie Sansom faced their fair share of doubters.

“Married at 20, you can imagine that would spark some sort of controversy,” Jasmine says.

But the high school sweethearts were set on making it official at their rustic vintage wedding.

“We both knew that our relationship was the real deal and that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together,” Jasmine says.

The Melbourne pair held their ceremony at Coolart Gardens in Somers, which brought back fond childhood memories for groom Mack.

Eighty friends and family attended the love-filled ceremony on March 19, 2016, with the couple working hard to create their perfect day.

“We didn’t have the money to have an extravagant and glamorous wedding, but you know what? We didn’t mind. We wanted something real, something intimate and something so personal,” Jasmine says.

The reception was held at a friend’s farm, in a marquee courtesy of Waverley Party Hire, and styled to perfection thanks to rustic-themed table settings and pale blooms.

“Our wedding had breathtaking rustic surroundings, the sweet sounds of nature, dear and loved family and friends, exquisite food and boogying on the dancefloor to funky tunes,” Jasmine says.

Jasmine discovered singer Mia Wray on YouTube. “I was so overwhelmingly honoured that she accepted our request to sing during our ceremony. She sang as I walked down the aisle to our favourite love song, Counting Crows’ Accidentally In Love.”

Jasmine loved her bridesmaids’ mismatched gowns. “I gave each of my bridesmaids a colour tone and asked them to find a dress that they would like to wear… They looked gorgeous.”

“Marriage has always been something so important to the both of us, especially amidst many in today’s society who have strong views on marriage, many who choose to focus on their career and success rather than finding love,” Jasmine says.
