Rustic Country Wedding with all of the romantic and vintage vibes!


This wedding was a mix of rustic, romantic and vintage! Captured by Morgan Roberts, we’re in love with the wide-open landscapes of Simone + Tom’s relaxed country wedding. Would you take a few minutes to drool with us over her long-sleeved, blush gown by Wendy Makin with lace detailing and sheer overlay? Not only that, but the golden tones at sunset had us so inspired for what country weddings can offer. We talked with Simone about their love story –

Tell us about your proposal! We got engaged in August 2016 on the top of Mt Amos in the Freycinet National Park while holidaying in Tasmania. After making it to the top there was a big lone boulder right at the peak where I stood up on trying to get Tom to be an Instagram husband & take a picture of me. He then climbed up and got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Of course I said yes, then promptly ordered him off the sketchy rock as I was scared we were going to fall off.

How did you know your partner was the one? When all of my thoughts about my future always involved Tom, I couldn’t imagine my life without him. His sense of humour was a big one for me, I knew our life together would be fun. Our love has always been easy, there has always been a balance in the differences between us which felt right.

What was your favourite part of the wedding day? Standing up in front of all our family and friends and hearing our celebrant, Annie, tell our story of how we came to be there to the people we love the most. Looking at Tom in that moment and reminiscing the parts of our life that created us, it felt incredibly special to share that.

What is marriage to you? Marriage to me means that whatever happens to us in this life, we’ll always have a partner to face it with. It’s putting Toms needs next to my own and knowing that he will always do the same. It’s Tom seeing me at my absolute worst & level 10 weirdness and knowing that he’ll never love me any less.
