Gorgeous Garden Wedding: Nicola + Guy


Blessed with beautiful Western Australia weather, Nicola and Guy said ‘I do’ in a gorgeous, green garden. After nine years together, the couple was excited to publicly declare and celebrate their love for each other. With a laid back, rustic reception, the happy couple and their guests indulged in fine wine and seafood at Forest Hill Winery.

Tell us about your proposal: Guy proposed in the middle of the forest near his family’s vineyard in Mount Barker, Western Australia. We were out for a late afternoon walk with Poppy (our dog) when it started pouring with rain. As we were both running for shelter, Guy suddenly stopped in front of me, dropped onto his knee and proposed! I said yes and the rest is history!

How did you know your partner was the one? It was after he beat me at James Bond on Nintendo! I’d never lost before so I knew I’d met my match! It also helped that he was the most decent person I’d ever met and made me smile more than anyone else!

What do you love most about your partner?

Nicola: He’s the most considerate and genuine person. He’s also amazingly talented and constantly makes me smile!

Guy: Nic is unlike anyone else I’ve met. She is sensitive, kind-hearted, loyal, and extremely talented at everything she puts her mind to.

What was your favourite part of the wedding day? The whole day was so special! But I think for me (Nicola), it was probably the moment I saw Guy standing at the other end of the aisle, looking incredibly dashing, and all the nerves just melted away! 

Describe your wedding theme: Intimate, elegant, soft and romantic with a hint of rustic winery charm!

What was your favourite detail? The flowers and table settings were amazing! I also really loved the foliage amongst the Barrels and around the lighting – it looked magical! Honestly I loved all of it, Kristina from Gather + Hunt did such a wonderful job with the styling!

What is marriage to you? After being together for nine years, getting married was about celebrating our love and formalising our commitment to each other before starting a family together.
