Rebecca and Ruari got married in August on Ruari's beautiful family property. The hall building used to be a schoolhouse and there are so many sweet remnants from this time. The property itself is beautiful, wild, large and in the weeks leading up to their big day Ruari, Rebecca and their families went to a great effort to prepare it for the wedding. Ruari made the ceremony platform by hand - using found sticks to create the arch and the little bridge behind it was also made my Ruari, using old whiskey barrels.

While Ruari made the bigger pieces, Rebecca's labour of love came in the form of baking. The reception included a stunning baked goods table which a few of the guests contributed to - Rebecca contributed three gorgeous cakes (she cut me a slice of the vegan one before I left and I can tell you it was divine).

Rebecca also told me just a few days before the wedding both of them were in the pond up to their thighs pulling out weeds to make it beautiful.

My, oh my, did all that hard work pay off! Just look at this - the most beautiful, intimate and personal ceremony set up.

And this carried over to the ceremony itself... So warm and personal. There was laughter, tears and the most beautiful storytelling by their celebrant Brenda Pattie Reid.

And this in turn carried over to the whole day... beautiful, intimate, warm, personal and so, so full of love.
