Todays rustic wedding comes from the beautiful hills of New South Wales, Australia. Tony from GS Diamonds introduces Beck and Tim’s special day to us…
“Do you want to know how to use the natural elements to make your wedding “unnaturally exclusive”? Rebecca and Timothy’s wedding album will reveal you the secrets of being natural but unique. Unordinary décor decisions, naturalistic style and fashion in wedding looks, home comfort, and chic – unconnected things can look harmoniously together. . Can you imagine a tablecloth from a book’s pages? What about memorable trinkets for guests? We loved every single detail from their spectacular day…”

Tell us about your wedding, what was the inspiration behind your day?
We are rather reticent persons and try to make everything in our life correspond with our natures. So, we knew long before the wedding day that the ceremony would not be pompous and razzle. When asking ourselves what way would be the best for turning the mass celebration into the cozy home gatherings, we both firstly think about country location. Nature was the only balancing factor, we guessed, and that is why the decision to organise a rustic wedding came automatically. It implies the triumph of peace and family comfort and it is important for us. Besides, we did not emphasize any taken colouristic style, the nature, natural hues and elements from natural materials were our major focus.
Tell us about your wedding day looks…
For me, it was easier than for Rebecca. I had found a traditional black suit with a white shirt. A single outstanding thing was my wooden bow tie. It was an exclusive element, which we were looking for a long time. Rebecca, had troubles with finding THE dress since no one really met with her vision. Finally, she found a magnificent dress. For me, it reminded me of an extremely thin spider web covered with morning dew. Her slippers (yes she refused from heels) were designed to match the dress. Rebecca wanted her hair to looked like vintage headdress made in a rush for a forest walk!
Lets talk wedding decor, how did you decorate the ceremony and reception space?
Our wedding décor was minimalistic. Our wedding arch was simple and made from wood, open space places for rest were designed as the small zones under modest white umbrellas. To make our ceremony eco- friendly we used a paper theme. Our tablecloths were made from pages from books. It looked original, simple and atmospheric. Who does not like to read the book sitting down comfortably on the lawn? It is a good way to relax!
Did you use flowers in any of your wedding design?
You can’t have a wedding without flowers! Our floral décor was tied in with the natural environment too and this made it special. Just near the wedding ceremony area grew a huge flourishing Fuchsia bush. As nature suggested this colour we used it throughout the rest of our styling. These colours were tied into the bridal bouquet, floral decoration of wedding arch, and table placenames.
How did you personalise your day?
Since the wedding was not merely our special day but was a holiday for the whole family, we strived to make some memorable elements for our guests. Considering the place of the outdoor ceremony, we opted to bring in some small paper fans. They were placed in a huge vintage suitcase and everyone could take it as a present and could cool themselves down during the service.
For me, the photo session became also the favorite part of the wedding. It was just walking through magnificent landscapes and admiring with nature’s beauty. We did not notice the camera at all.
What was the most anticipated moment of your special day?
Waiting for Rebecca to say “I do” at the altar. Rebecca says the same!
Do you have any advice for any other couples getting married and planning their wedding?
I guess every couple has their personal stories of love, some symbolical and associative aspects – all that should be involved when planning the wedding. Make your day maximally personalized and it, for sure, will become memorable.
Many thanks to GS Diamonds for sharing this beautiful rustic wedding with us. Breathtaking!
