Backyard Wedding | Chloe & Yao | Bensville

wasGet excited, it’s raining!

Well, Alanis Morissette has sung about how rain on your wedding day is a bad thing. But let me tell you, no amount of rain in the world could have dampened Chloe & Yao’s day.

Admittedly, it was sad news to hear that the outdoor wedding, that was planned in the gorgeous, lush paddocks of Chloe’s childhood property, had to be moved undercover. But as soon as I arrived, none of that sadness remained.

Chloe, Yao and their families had outdone themselves in decorating the house, the garage and the undercover veranda, ready for the day ahead. Stunning DIY flower arrangements, eclectic and thoughtfully placed decoration and memorabilia turned their house into a Boho wedding-venue dream. The double garage was converted into the reception and bar area, and the living room became filled with conversations and laughter of friends and family.

The day couldn’t have been more heartfelt and relaxed if we tried.  And celebrating within the four walls, that proudly displayed all the old photos from Chloe’s childhood and even a wedding portrait of Chloe’s parents, brought a whole extra level of meaning and significance to the day.

Once the sun had set, we headed outside once more to have a little extra fun with the rain. Chloe & Yao truly embraced every minute of it, and they wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.
