Emotions were running high at Henriett Doyle and Rowyn Bartlett’s golf course wedding.

“I’m like the girl from 27 Dresses – I always look at the groom to see the expression on their faces when they see their bride,” Henriett, 26, says of other weddings she has attended.

“My husband burst into tears when he saw me, that made me all warm and fuzzy!”

The Perth pair chose Joondalup Resort, known as one of the nation’s number one golf course resorts, for their ceremony and reception on February 23, 2014.

“There was lots of laughter and tears from sheer happiness,” the bride says of her emotionally-charged wedding to Rowyn, 27.

The sun shone down on the outdoor ceremony, attended by 100 guests, with the bride and groom marrying under a gorgeous rotunda draped in white tulle.

Budding Stars helped Henriett ensure the venue looked the part for their elegant reception and carefully-arranged blooms added splashes of colour to the otherwise neutral decor.

After a romantic first dance, Henriett and her bridesmaids surprised Rowyn and guests with a group dance to “Cotton Eye Joe”“Everyone at the reception joined in, even my parents,” Henriett says.

The bride describes their fun-filled day as a true reflection of her and Rowyn as a couple. “We are down-to-earth people and that’s how we wanted to make our guests feel – comfortable and included in the celebrations,” she says.

“What you see is what you get with us, dancing barefeet and all!”
