There were personal, home-made touches throughout at the breathtaking and one-of-a-kind wedding of 32-year-old Ashleigh Nicolau and Andrew Snelling.
The backdrop for the reception was made from crochet doilies created by a close friend, wedding rings were cast from family jewelry and designed by the bride and groom, and even the scarves worn by the groomsmen were handcrafted.
The stunning flowers, purchased at Swan Valley Flower Farm, were arranged by the wedding party, including the backdrop of flowers hanging from the lakeside ceremony. The girls made their own bouquets and the groomsmen made their own buttonholes.
When and where
The vintage-themed nuptials took place on September 28 at the beautiful Buckland Estate, near Northam. The bride and groom exchanged vows in a field of yellow flowers by a lake on the mansion property in front of 100 guests.
The evening ended with many dances, including choreographed numbers that the newlyweds had spent 10 weeks learning in dance classes.
With most of the guests staying on site, the couple loved that they could continue to spend quality time with them at the end of their wedding day.
The bride wore a Maggie Sottero dress and Dreamtime Designs veil from Brides Selection.
The lovebirds spent a week down south in Margaret River and Manjimup, staying in Airbnbs in forests.
