Take a look at Farah + Craigs rustic romance wedding day for the perfect spring and summer wedding inspo!

The Beginning

“We first met at work in August 2012. We both worked at Sir Charles Gairdener hospital in Perth, WA.”

The Proposal

“Craig proposed at one of the lookouts along the Great Ocean Road on the way to our favourite town, Apollo Bay VIC.”

The Dress

“I didn’t try any wedding dresses on. I stumbled across a fabric store in Malvern on Glenferrie road called d’ltalia. I fell in love with a particular lace. After purchasing my lace and silk from there, they directed me to Vasiliki couture who makes wedding gowns. Vikki is incredibly talented, patient and kind. She drew the dress I had pictured in my head and made it all happen.”


“Honesty and good communication are key. Never go to sleep upset with one another.”

The Wedding Theme

“We decided on a rustic feel with lots of florals and candles.”

Special Moments

“It’s hard to capture one single moment. The whole day was like a dream.”

Any Changes?

“Our wedding day was the best day of our lives, there is nothing we would change about it.”

Bridal Tips

“As cliché as it sounds, live in the moment, don’t stress and enjoy your day. Craig and I were overwhelmed that all of our loved ones; family and friends were all in the one room celebrating our love. A moment you may never get to experience ever again.”
