Lauren and Chris wed in Australia, the country in which they live but they traveled to the town of Daylesford to tie the knot at the Sault Restaurant. Lauren shared with us the story behind their big day:
Our main priority was to not let our wedding day stress us out. We knew that it was going to be one of the most important and memorable days of our lives, but we didn’t want that to get in the way of us making the most of it and having an amazing time! We also wanted to ensure that our friends and family were happy, feeling comfortable and having fun of course. After all, this was a celebration of love so we wanted to bring everyone together to celebrate just that!
For Chris and my one year anniversary, he took me away for a weekend in Daylesford. I had never been to the town before and instantly fell in love with how relaxing and quaint it was! We stayed in a beautiful boutique hotel and ate some of the most delicious meals we’ve ever tried in our life that weekend. The time we spent in Daylesford is some of the fondest memories that I have with Chris, which made choosing our wedding location a breeze! We visited a few different potential venues when we started planning our wedding, but as soon as we arrived at Sault I knew that it was perfect! We both wanted an outdoor rustic themed wedding, and Sault provided us with a flawless backdrop from Lavender and greenery.
Chris and I are both very laid back people who love spending time outdoors! If given the choice we would always choose vintage and wood over modern and glitz. When we look at lifestyle, from our clothing to the interior in our apartment, we knew that a vintage/rustic theme would best reflect our personality as a couple. We wanted to have a wedding that we wouldn’t look back at photos of in 50 years and cringe at our decoration choices; therefore neutral, natural and vintage elements were all used to hopefully produce a timeless wedding.
To me, our wedding was absolutely flawless! The look and feel on the day was relaxed and rustic. All of our family and friends seemed to be having an amazing time, and I couldn’t have imagined it going any more perfectly. To be honest, I wouldn’t change a thing!
For our honeymoon Chris and I ventured off to Spain. I had never been before and always wanted to visit Ibiza before we started thinking about settling down and having kids. Chris had visited Spain twice before so he knew all of the best restaurants and beaches to go to, I was in absolute heaven! Returning home was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do!
Congratulations to the newlyweds!
