For Hannah and Peter’s fairy tale Lyrebird Falls wedding, the bride needed to look the part.
At Fairytales Bridal Boutique, the 36-year-old found just what she needed to marry her 39-year-old groom! “I fell in love with my dress immediately,” says Hannah. “The bodice was detailed with pearls and crystals, while the skirt was a simple tulle edged with lace. The veil was also edged with lace to match the skirt. The dress was every bit a fairy tale dress to me.”
The couple married at the Kallista location in Victoria on December 30, 2017. “It was the most amazing day of our lives, and we have both commented that we would not have changed one thing,” says Hannah. Entertainment was a priority for the lovebirds, who engaged a harpist for the ceremony and the Baker Boys Band for the reception. “I couldn’t recommend this band enough,” smiles Hannah. “From the first inquiry through to execution, they were so organised and detailed.”
And if live music wasn’t enough for their guests, there was plenty of games to keep them busy also. “We hired some giant lawn games for the guests including giant Jenga, connect four, quoits, and corn holes,” explains the bride.

“Now settling back home as a married couple with our little dog Yoda, we still smile when we get to call each other husband and wife,” says the bride.
“We had 1928 and 1929 cream Hudsons take the bridal party to the wedding,” explains Hannah of Sherbrooke Hire Vintage Cars.
Sophia Kueh Flowers provided classic floral arrangements for the big day. “The bridal bouquet was a large cascade of pale pink and ivory roses with draping ivy. The bridemaids had pale pink posies, and the groomsmen had pale pink flowers to match,” describes Hannah.
The couple praises Jason Vannan for his local knowledge of great photo locations. “We landed the money shot as we were standing under the Puffing Billy railway bridge.”
“Most of our suppliers we found on Easy Weddings, including the photographer, flowers, celebrant, cars to the venue, a pink Cadillac to leave the venue, the venue itself, the band, and the harpist for the ceremony,” says Hannah.
