Hannah and Leigh originally met through a mutual friend, so it’s no surprise that the couple opted to make their wedding day an epic celebration surrounded by their nearest and dearest. Think non-stop smiles on the dance-floor and far too much champagne. (That’s a big fat lie, because there’s simply no such thing as too much champagne!)
Using a minimalist approach to their theme, the couple selected natural textures, dried florals to drum up a ‘burnt summer’ style throughout their Wagga Wagga wedding. Note the gorgeous all-white wedding cake and handwritten menu cards, surrounded by native flowers.

THE PROPOSAL //
Leigh took me away for a weekend away to Kangaroo Valley at the cottage and we were having a wine and cheeseboard relaxing by the fire, I went into the bedroom and when I turned around Leigh was on one knee, I could not stop crying. We then spent the night together cooking and talking and calling the people we love to tell them the exciting news.
The Most Memorable Moment //
That’s a hard one! I have two. The ceremony is in the top two, we literally felt like it was just us two there, the happiness we both felt is like nothing we have ever experienced and I cannot explain it! Leigh also promised each other we would have a moment just us so we walked off and looked at everyone having the best time having a moment alone just us two. We didn’t spend long along as we were just having so much fun we wanted to get back in there!
THE WEDDING DRESS //
Did you know what you wanted before shopping? I thought I did, I wanted long sleeves but that soon changed with the help of Alex at Hope X Page.
How did find your dress? I made and appointment at Hope X Page, but I wasn’t confident in finding my dress as I had been to so many and didn’t feel great in any but the last dress I tried on at Hope X Page was just to see if it worked as an option and I loved it! Alex Thompson was so helpful and a dream!
Your chosen designer: Alexandra Grecco, purchased from Hope X Page.
Did you make any modifications to the wedding dress? I got a split cut in my dress to show my Dior shoes.
THE WEDDING ACCESSORIES //
Dior Shoes, a pearl veil and Enesea earrings. I also bought Leigh a Junghans watch for our big day.
THE WEDDING SUIT //
Leigh’s suit we tried a few different places but a stylist I worked with recommended The Suit Supply, as soon as he tried the suit on he knew it was the perfect one.
THE ONE THING THEY WISH THEY KNEW BEFORE WEDDING PLANNING //
I wish I was told how fun planning was, a lot of people say it is very stressful, I didn’t find it stressful I was very organised and it made the day so much more enjoyable.
THE ADVICE THEY’D GIVE TO ANOTHER COUPLE //
Start planning early, I was so relaxed the week of because I started so early.
THE MUSIC //
First Dance: Natalie Cole, ‘This Will Be An Everlasting Love’ // Walking down the aisle: Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, ‘Home’ (Sung by their acoustic singer Mark Crotti) // Reception Entrance Song: Toploader ‘Dancing In The Moonlight’
THE REGRETS //
Absolutely nothing at all. It was so perfect I wouldn’t change one thing!
