Festive Australian wedding by Alma Photography

I love the relaxed festival vibe of this Australian country wedding by Alma Photography, which was featured in the latest issue of {MAG}rouge.

When Alex and Laura decided on the location for their wedding, they dubbed it ‘Lovestock’. “We’re old souls, so it seemed natural to want a huge celebration in the middle of nowhere - much like a festival. It was all about the people we loved and making it an enjoyable experience for them. Nature, good food and wine, music, warmth, humor, love for the olden days - these things inspired us definitely, but we were (and still are) most inspired by the people in our lives.”

A very wise friend of the couple advised them to do exactly what they wanted - so they did. Alex and Laura’s wedding was a reflection of them in every way. “We looked to ourselves and the kind of life we lead and went from there. Everything felt very genuine and very honest.”

Alex shares this moment from the ceremony: “Laura and I were placing the rings on each others fingers. Laura was struggling to get mine on, and there was a bit of laughter from the crowd. Next thing you know about 20 or so Kookaburras in the trees above us joined in and wouldn’t stop laughing! This made the crowd laugh more and so there was a chorus of laughter all round. We felt like we had the whole universe’s blessing at that point.”

The couple advise others to go with the flow, to not get bogged down in details, and to trust that everything will work out. Choose your vendors wisely, be flexible, and ultimately, “go gently. With every wedding, something doesn’t go according to plan. But just be grateful that so many things do and enjoy those moments as they are the ones that you will remember.”
