Thanks to Megan Lesley Photography for submitting this beautiful Kangaroo Island real wedding. The wedding of Linda and Curtis took place at Linda’s parents property on the island followed by a reception at the local yacht club.

The Engagement

Honestly, it was completely unexpected (on my behalf!). We had joked about it for a few months, but it had never been anything serious and secretly I thought I’d need to throw pretty obvious hints at him before anything happened.

We had just spent a fun and food filled Christmas day with my extended family on Kangaroo Island and once everyone had gone to bed he pulled out a final present, a ring! Later I learned that the proposal was supposed to occur on our morning walk the next morning, but he just couldn’t wait!

Inspiration

Being a country girl, I really wanted to have a farm wedding, and we couldn’t think of a better location than my parents farm on Kangaroo Island. The backdrop of the lagoon and the gumtrees was perfect, and our guests were able to experience the beautiful countryside that I grew up in.

Curtis and I are quite relaxed and wanted our wedding to reflect this aspect of our personalities. For the reception, we decided against the formal sit down three course dinner and opted for a big family style roast buffet with all the trimmings which showed off some of Kangaroo Islands best produce, including some of my proud dad’s home grown roast lamb!

Favourite Moment

So many moments to love. Seeing all my favourite people, in my favourite place, celebrating our wedding was amazing. I’m still in awe when I think of the love that day for us both, we are very very privileged to have these people in our lives.

Oh, and I can’t forget the dance off between myself and my friend Kieren to Hollaback Girl. It was epic (and I won).
