Mind, body, spirit: Annika and Michael marry at bohemian wedding

Wedding: 02/10/2015

Posted by Kellie | 9 January, 2016

Finding the perfect tree was key to the bohemian wedding of Annika Pattick and Michael Morgan.

“We were looking for somewhere with a tree because we felt the tree represents the connectivity of life,” says the bride. “We both aren’t religious at all so wanted the ceremony to be more about love and a ‘mind, body, spirit’ connection between everyone there, the tree, the earth, the ocean.”

Byron Bay was obviously calling the couple. Annika found the Fig Tree Restaurant and its stunning tree, which also inspired their wedding theme. “Both being outdoorsy people who love trees, nature and animals — it seemed appropriate to try to create a woodland type theme with colourful wildflowers and a bohemian influence,” smiles the bride.

They married on October 2, 2015 with a grand entrance from Annika at the ceremony. She rode in on a horse! Hubby Michael says it was one of the standouts, when her dad took her arm, she dismounted and looked up at the Michael — bursting into tears of emotion.

Annika was also a very lucky bride tp have three wedding gowns! Two she wore (including that of her late mother) for a photo shoot with a horse. The third she wore at the ceremony and reception; a beautiful lace maxi gown by Somedays Lovin’.

“I’m yours to joke, laugh and be silly with during our good times and to love, support and be your rock when life throws challenges our way,” was one of the promises from Michael’s vows.
