Sally + Dylan
Sally and Dylan love the great outdoors. They met when Sally, a teacher, took her class to a school camp. There, she met Dylan, one of the Outdoor Education instructors, and they spent the week laughing and swapping stories.
“A few weeks and several phone calls later, we went out on our first date,” Sally said. “And the rest is history!”
There’s something so magical about a rural wedding: the rolling countryside, the wide open skies, the rustic charm. Sally and Dylan decided to celebrate their wedding in true festival style – a weekend away with their nearest and dearest, glamping in gorgeous yurts at Bringalbit Country Retreat.
“It was the relaxed event that we were after,” Sally said.
But ‘relaxed’ doesn’t need to be basic, as these two showed by putting incredible amounts of love and time into the finer details. The decorations were all home-made. The bridesmaid dresses were carefully mis-matched. Sally’s students played in a string quartet at the ceremony, and one of the parents from school provided a masterpiece of a wedding cake.
Even a custom seating “flow” chart added to the fun, showing every single guest how they were special and connected to the bride and groom.
In keeping with the glamping theme, Sally and Dylan wanted guests to be able to share a relaxed meal together. Our share platters were the perfect option, allowing guests to try a little bit of everything, or stick to what they love.
“What we hadn’t realised,” Sally told us, “was how much the shared food would help our guests to get to know each other. “They were passing things back and forth with people they didn’t necessarily know before the meal.”
What a pleasure it was to be part of Sally and Dylan’s gorgeous and truly unique wedding.
