Hayley + Hugh’s Backyard Tipi Wedding

A week after Hayley + Hugh’s wedding, Hayley emailed me asking if I had survived her wedding, using the words ‘chaotic and hedonistic’ to describe the day. I chose the words ‘crazy beautiful’ instead. Everything about the day was just that. A little crazy, and completely crazy beautiful.

Set in the backyard of their family’s home in Barwon Heads, Hayley and Hugh were married by one of their friends. Simple, heart warming and hilarious, especially when their young daughter stood between them yelling “I’m here, I’m here now!” and then insisted they swing her around. Hayley did one better by lifting her up above her head while the celebrant sung the opening song from Lion King. Comedy gold.

The usually quiet and introverted groom then went on to slip the line “you are the lactose free custard to my gluten free tart” into his vows.

And thus the scene was set for a wonderful, crazy beautiful wedding.

Love Katie xo
