Lauren & Tom's was my favourite kind of wedding - the all weekend kind of event where family and friends stay together overnight.
Lauren and Tom were married at the picturesque Chapel Hill Retreat. What a perfect place for a wedding, with a gorgeous on site chapel, elegant function room and beautiful accomodation, including a private bridal suite! Nestled in the Blue Mountains, the grounds are stunning.
Lauren and Tom decided they wanted to spend as much time with their guests as possible after the ceremony, so switched things up a little. Rather than seeing each other for the first time at the ceremony, they had an intimate 'first look' earlier in the day. Then it was time for photos before they headed off to get married.
Lauren and her Mum are both teachers, which showed in their attention to detail. Everything was done to perfection. The decorations were stunning, and the reception venue twinkled with fairy lights, chandeliers and mirrors. And not to forget, a colour coordinated lolly bar.
Lauren made an absolutely gorgeous bride, and she and Tom are the sweetest couple. The whole weekend was so full of love, and the two of them couldn't have looked happier. What a fabulous wedding!
