Bridget + Ryan

Lees Farmhouse, Yarramalong

Only days before Bridget and Ryan’s wedding, Covid restrictions came into place and put a cloud over their original wedding plans. Rain, hail, shine, virus or no virus – these love birds were ready to conquer all to unify their love. On what would have been their wedding day, they decided to do a simple elopement with only their Mother’s present as witnesses.

After discovering that the couple didn’t get to see each other in their bridal attire, nor do a cake cutting or have a first dance, their wedding photographer and videographer duo, Woodlands Creative, decided to band together with some of the original vendors and give them the surprise of a lifetime with a micro-wedding.

Whilst Bridget and Ryan were getting ready for what they thought was a bridal photoshoot and vow reading, they had no idea that there was an army of people working away to create the most magical scene for their surprise micro-wedding on the lush grounds of Lee’s Farmhouse.

A cosy campfire was prepared for the guests because, let’s be honest, a winter wedding is not complete without a few roasted marsh-mellows!

As dusk neared, the guests shared heartfelt speeches around the table setting before the cutting of the cake. The proverbial cherry on the cake was a perfect ending to a beautiful day with an intimate yet energetic dance floor consisting of their most loved ones under the starry-sky.
