- Wedding: October 2013
Hi all! I just wanted to introduce myself! My name is Jen and my fiance is Daniel.
We got engaged on new years eve last year he proposed with a lego replica ring as the engagement ring he had ordered would take 3 months to come in as it is a Vera Wang Love Collection ring. One of my friends had helped him and it was perfect!
I finally got it in February
We started planning our wedding immediately after the engagement as we decided we didn’t want a long engagement, so we contacted some wedding venues and went to see Amy at Chapel Farm in Middle Swan the week after.
The venue was perfect! We wanted a laid back “vinatge rustic” feel and Chapel Farm has it all

It was important to us that the venue would be somewhere that Daniel’s mum would have loved as she passed away in 2011. Her favourite flower was the sunflower and Chapel Farm has a metal flower sculpture with a sunflower included so we felt it was fate!
For table decorations I am making them and we are having lace edged burlap table toppers with jars and bottles filled with flowers. I got the table toppers and flowers from etsy. The flowers are from an amazing seller called Southern Girl Weddings, she had the bouquet listed and co-ordinated the extra flowers for the tables and bridal party. Here are some pics… sorry they aren’t very good!
My dress is an allure W282, i ordered it from house of brides for $878 AUD, to buy through a shop in perth was going to be $2000 and i still would have needed to have alterations on top. I also ordered a head piece and the most amazing wedge shoes in a blue colour. They only have a small heel which suits me fine!
This is me in the dress, I am about an AU size 22 – 24
and this is the dress, shoes, flowers, headpiece 😀
anyway, hope you enjoyed the pics and hearing about the plans!
