Bohemian, Back to Nature, Scenic Wedding

Categories Real Weddings

Bohemian and gorgeous–Luke and Rosie had their unique and intimate Australian camping wedding–at Spicers Canopy–a nature refuge at Queenland’s Scenic Rim. WOW. Spicers Canopy sits in the heart of a 20,000 acre cattle station with stunning views at every direction. Under a rustic and flower-strewn arbor, Luke and Rosie said their “I Do’s” at their outdoor ceremony and followed it up with a beautiful candlelit reception in the rustic-romantic communal lodge. Guests stayed in safari-style eco tents. Absolutely picturesque! Enjoy this simple, lovely, back-to-nature wedding from Down Under from Oli Sansom.
