The Lake House Wedding {Rowie + Danny}

We’re pleased as punch to share these gorgeous wedding pictures captured by Sorrento Wedding Photography.

The wedding took place at Lake House, Daylesford, Victoria and is reminiscent of a “summer picnic set in 1950. Relaxed, colourful and fun” explained Rowie.

We love that this wedding was filled to the brim with unique and wonderful wedding ideas. Rowie recalls “I spent a lot of time sourcing all the display points and researching online. For example the paper flags hanging around the marquee were all sourced from Mexico, they are traditional wedding flags.”

Then friends and family helped with all the creative projects. Rowie explained “mum made my tablecloth and table runner for the day. The tablecloth was made from her bedroom curtains from when she was 5! The girls I work with made the patchwork quilt from vintage blankets, it was for the guests to lounge around in the sun and helped to create a relaxed atmosphere. The doilies were mostly vintage, my Nanna gave me quite a few of them. I hand dyed them all, and guests loved them so much they all took one home.”

Rowie wore a stunning custom-made wedding dress, “I found a photo on ebay of a beautiful 1950s white lace dress, but it had sold so I took the photo to Amici Couture and she was amazing! The dress was exactly what I wanted.”

Rowie remarks “We didn’t really plan to have a colour theme, but Danny and I both love vintage so I guess it all pulled together as a theme of vintage brights.”

“We made batches of cherry tomato relish every weekend in the lead up to the wedding. Danny was in charge of chopping onions and I did the rest. I used fabric and bakers twine to decorate them and Danny made all the individual name tags” says Rowie.

Rowie explains what made the wedding unique and special for her, “It was amazing having the wedding so intimate, we wanted to be able to spend time with everyone who was there and so we only invited close family and friends. Everyone at the wedding knew each other, which was nice. We wanted the day to feel relaxed, almost like a summer picnic. Taking advantage of the blue skies, lake and all the beautiful surroundings really made the day. However we did kick off into the night, after the wedding was over we all headed down to the local pub ‘The Farmers Arms’ to have a few beers. I did get a few weird looks in my wedding dress but it was fun.”

More From The Bride:

Your biggest challenge:

“Setting everything up on the morning of the wedding! A 7am start to have all the decorating done, which was tight because we got married at noon.”

What was your favourite moment:

“Danny and I wrote our own vows and they were a surprise for the wedding day. Poor Danny got so emotional he struggled to read his out. That was a pretty sweet moment.”

What’s your advice:

“Do as much as you can in advance! plan plan plan!”
