All aboard for Kristy and Steven's big day

You can take your pick from the retro motorhome, old-school pick-up truck or classic Downton Abbey-style car...
Kristy and Steven celebrated their wedding with a traditional church ceremony, but when it came time for the flower girls and page boys to make their entrance, it didn't quite go to plan. "Three of the four kids - all nieces and nephews - made it down the aisle, but one page boy took a right turn and chickened out," Kristy says.

The couple's reception was hosted in a marquee on the groom's parents' farm in country Victoria. "We had to start from scratch, so it was a lot of work," the bride explains. "Steven's parents put so much work into the farm leading up to the wedding, getting the gardens up to scratch and things like that. The bridesmaids and their partners all travelled over [from Western Australia] early to help with the set-up and take care of the decorating for me, which was a massive help." The marquee was decked out with light-up 'LOVE' letters (that Steven had made himself), a Pimms drink station, biscuit bar, selfie sticks, Polaroids and, of course, hay bales. A lot of the kit and decorations were found when Kristy and Steven were rummaging through the farm's old sheds and outbuildings.

The couple wanted their day to be casual, relaxed and fun-filled. "We wanted everyone to just have a good time and dance up a storm. That's what happened, so we were stoked. It really was the perfect day!" Kristy says. "I remember looking around the packed dance floor at one stage and everyone was dancing and singing to Hanson's 'MMMBop' - that memory really sticks in my mind, it was awesome."

Most of the couple's guests travelled from interstate - the couple live in Western Australia themselves - so to thank them, Kristy and Steven decided to gift them a favour that doubled as an inside joke. "Steven is a hanky man and often cops a fair bit of criticism for using them, so we thought it would be perfect for us to give everyone hankies as a joke, but also as a nice keepsake." The couple had the hankies monogrammed with their initials and the date of the wedding, and attached to a tag that read 'For happy tears'.
