Emily and Kym had more DIY kit than a Pinterest board

Emily Kym Real Wedding
Plus, they totally nailed their rustic wedding theme.
To pull this off, the couple used pieces owned by family members and made many of the decorations themselves. "The cake table and tablecloth were my great-grandmother's," says Emily. "And I was able to use antique bottles that my mum has been collecting for years for some of the centrepieces." Frames for the blackboards at the ceremony and table numbers at the reception were made from old jarrah wood that was going to be thrown away. "Another one of the blackboards was made from an old trestle table from my parents' primary school," describes the bride. "We also printed old family wedding photos and displayed them on our gifts table; the oldest photo was one from my great-great-grandmother's wedding in the early 1900s." Oh, the couple made chocolate and walnut fudge for their bomboniere, too. 

Emily and Kym held their ceremony in the groom's parents' front garden - a perch that overlooks the beach and crystal-blue water. "They put an enormous amount of work in preparing their home for our wedding day, and it looked amazing! We wrote our own vows too, which was fantastic as it allowed us to put a personal touch on the ceremony." Following the 'I do's, the newlyweds and their guests made for the reception, where cracking fare was a top priority. "We wanted a simple menu with good country food," Emily explains. "My parents are oyster farmers so, of course, oysters were part of the entrée, along with other canapés. We took advantage of the cooking talents of our friends and family and had a dessert table. This doubled as a decorative display and looked great on the wooden trestle tables."
