Bree and Mitch's rustic backyard wedding on the coast of Australia with a blush pink wedding dress by Grace Loves Lace // OnThree Photography // The Natural Wedding Company

Today’s beautiful rustic backyard wedding comes to us all the way from sunny Australia and is a lovely example of how to have a laid back and affordable wedding. Bree and Mitch were high school sweethearts and planned a wedding around their memories of warm evenings sat together in Bree’s parents back garden.

From Bree’s unconventional blush pink Grace Loves Lace wedding dress to rustic handmade details and makeshift bar, this wedding is both beautiful and full of love, but without a huge financial cost. They even had some weather issues, but not – if you’re planning a summer wedding in England – in the way that you’d imagine!

Over to Bree to tell us more about their wedding…

Timeless Australian wedding

I must admit that I rarely come across weddings that I find myself sitting there, scrolling back and forth between all the images.  This wedding is one of those rare ones.  There seem to be some beautiful and timeless weddings coming from Australia at the moment that are so down-to-earth, natural and effortless in the way they have come together.

The photos are taken by Tim Coulson, who also captured this Australian farm wedding I shared with you, and they have a magical quality to them.  Do enjoy some of my favourite details…

Timeless natural wedding

Sometimes a wedding comes along that evokes all kinds of feelings inside me that I almost can’t explain – I find those bigger questions in life bubbling to the surface, although I can’t really put my finger on it.

Rustic and natural wedding

When I stumbled across this beautiful Australian wedding, it really captured me, and I shall have to put it down to how genuine it seemed to be – truly a representation of the couple (Harriet and Mat) who were getting married.  Nothing about it feels contrived or put on, it’s just natural, real and utterly lovely.

I could have easily sent you a link to the original blog feature I saw, but I so loved this wedding that I got in touch with the photographer Tim Coulson to ask if I could share additional pictures which were featured on his blog.  So a big thank you to Tim for letting me share this beautiful wedding with you.
