Erin and Aidan celebrated their everlasting love surrounded by an enchanting forest at the elegant Somerley House garden venue in New South Wales. Get ready, because this day is something straight out of a fairytale! We’re absolutely smitten with Erin’s eclectic style – especially her botanical braid created by Belinda Vangelov and handmade, astral-inspired dress that fit her like a glove. Olguin Photography perfectly documented the couple’s emotional ceremony under the canopy of the Somerley House forest, dreamy florals by Wild Iris Floral Design, and romantic portrait session that ended under a full moon. We hope you enjoy swooning over this day as much as we did!

Somerley House, Sutton Forest, New South Wales
Our most important factor in planning was to remember why we were doing this – it is so easy to get caught up in all the small things along the way that you lose sight of the end. Our wedding day was our chance to share the love we have for each other in front of our loved ones.
From the groom: Every time I think back to that wonderful day I can see Erin‘s smile – I have never seen her happier, I have never seen her more at peace and at one with her world and me.
I love remembering him holding my hands as we stood in a circle after the ceremony and having all of our guests surround us in a “circle of love” that our celebrant suggested we did. It was to have everyone we care about become connected through a soft touch on a shoulder and then us in the centre of all that love, it felt amazing to have everyone we love so close.
I absolutely loved having time to have photos taken. Alex and the boys from Two Folk Films made it so so much fun, joking around, running through fields to get the best light, helping to look when I dropped an earring whilst running through a field. We just kept going, it was an amazing time, so personal and special, at times I forgot they were there and just enjoyed the moment with Aidan. I have never felt closer to Aidan than at that time.
I asked my dressmaker to incorporate stars and moons into the dress, which she did so well. The sleeves were so much fun when twirling around and dancing, even when they landed on my face when Aidan tried to twirl me around.
