Reece + Rhiannon | backyard wedding | Melbourne

If Sarah had a backyard big enough, she would have opted for a backyard wedding. If Katie gets married, she will find a backyard somewhere, anywhere, to get hitched. There is simply nothing more Australian than getting married under a tree in your own backyard, and then holding your reception in the shed.

Enter our heroes, Reece and Rhiannon.

It was SUCH a treat to shoot this simple, intimate affair. And such a treat to see a bride and groom welcome all their guests off the footpath and straight out of taxis at the beginning, and walk them personally out at the end.

And then there was the backyard wedding checklist perfectly nailed by this gorgeous couple:

Micro brewery out the back – check!

Festoon lights – check!

Green grass and white lawn furniture – check!

Hand picked flowers – check!

Wedding cake (made by Rhiannon’s mum) sitting on a work bench – check!

Swing in the front yard – check!

The amazing catering company whose food was not only astounding but who also employ asylum seekers as chefs, waiters and bar tenders – Double check!

And it’s not often that we drink on the job (although we do allow ourselves a glass of wine when we do a winery wedding), but it was such a hot day and there were some wonderfully made G & T’s on offer….

….and well we were in a backyard!!

Love Katie + Sarah xo
