While wedding trends often come and go, a rustic country theme is a tried and tested way to WOW your guests and make it a spectacular day to remember. There are many ways to approach your big day in outback Australia, however to help you out we have prepared a bespoke list of 5 trendy ways you can make your country wedding a STANDOUT!
Starting off with styling:
When determining the look for your ceremony, we recommend keeping it simple, natural and timeless. What about featuring a flowerless arbour? This allows the stunning bride and groom to be the focal point while also framing the incredible landscape.

Then it is the dress!!
Make a statement in a stunning fully lace gown! The boho-floral detailing of lace will tie in beautifully with the fauna of your chosen country property. When Freddie Met Lilly’s new “Georgia Collection” as pictured above (launching September 2020) was designed for the modern country bride! They are pure perfection.
Why not add a cute, custom leather jacket, blush ostrich fur or detachable sleeves to your gown for an extra dimension that is sure to wow your husband-to-be and wedding party!
Add a touch of Australia with a native bouquet:
The newest trend we cannot get enough of is rustic native bouquets and boutonnieres! Featuring many of Australia’s most beautiful flora such as wattle, pampas grass, everlasting daisies or eucalyptus leaf, these stunning arrangements can easily be dried after your big day as a beautiful, everlasting keepsake.
Breathtaking photo opportunities:
After finishing the ceremony, why not whisk the bride and groom away to a nearby field to photograph their love during golden hour! Need I say more?
If accessible on your chosen property, ask the managers if you can include their animals in the background of the photos. Whether it is a stunning horse with a shiny coat or a little cattle dog ready to pose, it will add a super cute moment to your photography and videography.
And finally, end the night with a cosy fire-pit!
To use once the dancing is done, organise a cosy little fire-pit to relax and laugh the rest of the night away with your nearest and dearest. Let your hair down and toast some marshmallows while taking in the magnificence of the day gone by.
