Louis proposed to me at my birthday dinner in a pizza restaurant with all of our closest friends. It was so lovely to share the moment with everyone, and we had an awesome night celebrating — it was like an impromptu engagement party! We decided on the wedding date that very night and gratefully accepted Louis’s parents offer to have the wedding on their farm in Woodend.
The wedding preparations began the next morning as I excitedly searched Etsy and wedding blogs like Polka Dot Bride and Ruffled for inspiration. Louis couldn’t believe the haste at which I got into planning. In the months leading up to the wedding, we scoured op-shops for vintage plates and champagne saucers. My friend Indie (who has a clothing label called Monolog) and I screen-printed 12 meters of fabric with one of her designs, which my mum sewed into tablecloths.
Head on over to Etsy Weddings for more photos and the full story behind Emily and Louis’ Australian celebration. We can’t wait to hear what you think about this bright and cheery wedding!
