Amy Davies and Aaron Wild took a laid-back approach to planning their Southern Highlands wedding. “I’m fairly organised, so I actually quite enjoyed all the preparation,” Amy said. “How often do you get to organise a fabulous party inviting all the people who are special to you?”
The end result: a gorgeous, rustic wedding filled with personal touches that reflected the couple’s innate style and overwhelming sense of fun. From a quirky chocolate ceremony during the vows – “a symbol of how marriage can sometimes be bitter and sweet, but always nourishing” – to the newlyweds’ entrance at the reception to the song ‘Wild Thing’ – “a bit cheesy but we had to have a laugh at my new last name,” said Amy - family and friends were given plenty of reasons to smile.
But it was the Jenga tower guest book which really left a lasting impression. “We asked everyone to write messages on each of the blocks, so when we play the game in the future, we can have a laugh about all the funny messages we received from our friends and family,” Amy smiled.
