Rachel + Jack didn’t want a big wedding.

They didn’t even want a wedding in their own home state.

So they hand selected thirty friends and family and all got onto plans, and piled into cars and headed down from Sydney to Melbourne for an intimate Thursday wedding at Coombe Estate. Rachel’s Pallas Couture gown took my breathe away, because instead of a veil, it came with ‘wings’ instead, which played in the wind all too nicely. They then moved onto a private residence in Eltham where they snuggled under blankets and dined under fairy lights.

What I loved about these guys is that they stayed true to themselves and planned the exact kind of wedding that they wanted. Sound advice to all the brides out there.

Have a Thursday wedding if you want one.

Have wings on your dress if that takes your fancy.
