Native Flowers & Rural Charm For This Country Wedding

Beneath a gorgeous fig tree on Yandina Station in Queensland, Whitney and Robyn said their vows.

It was all about right timing when the two first met. Robyn had returned from a three month holiday in Europe and Whitney had just moved back to the Sunshine Coast after living in Brisbane. It was while they were both working at the same local RSL that Whitney and Robyn fell in love.

Leaving the RSL behind, Whitney and Robyn moved to Mount Isa to begin their future together. While in Byron Bay for Splendour in the Grass, Robyn planned a surprise proposal for Whitney. An afternoon storm was passing through as the two had afternoon tea at a lighthouse, enjoying the view of the storm over the sea.

Robyn poured Whitney some hot tea in a black mug and watched closely as Whitney enjoyed the drink. Curious as to why Robyn was staring, Whitney looked at the mug and saw a picture of Robyn on one knee with a sign reading, “Will you marry me?”

The rustic country ceremony was followed by canapes on the lawn and a sit-down banquet reception in the dairy barn, which was decorated with fairy lights and rose gold sequin table runners, tying in beautifully with the neutral, gold, and dusty tones of the wedding.
