Paula and Tim followed their fun-filled day with a recovery barbecue

And it's no wonder when their nuptials had handmade decorations, canap├ęs, quoits and an al fresco dance floor decked in fairy lights. 
The groom's hometown is Euroa, so it made perfect sense to have the wedding there, says Paula. The pair swapped vows in a laidback ceremony held in the private gardens of one of Tim's old high-school teachers. "Tim used to cart hay bales for them, so we made sure we incorporated that into the story," the bride explains. The gardens also had a pair of union trees, two gum trees that have separate trunks but are fused together at the top. For the ceremony, Paula's goddaughter did a Dr Seuss reading and Tim's cousin performed a reading too. "We also did a ring-warming ceremony, where all the guests passed around our wedding rings prior to us exchanging them," says Paula. 

Following the 'I do's, the couple's nearest and dearest made their way to a drinks station (made by hay bales) and were given bags of rose petals to throw. "We signed our wedding papers on hay bales too!" Paula says. Instead of a traditional guest book, the couple opted to do a digital alternative: guests were handed blackboards and were asked to complete the sentence 'Marriage is bliss, but...'. The newlyweds also decided to not have a best man or maid of honour. "All of our friends and siblings are so dear to us, it was too hard to decide," says the bride.
