Elegant garden wedding of Stephanie & Sean a family affair


A simple but romantic proposal was reflective of the simply elegant garden wedding of Stephanie Schieb, 35, and Sean Hickey, 36.

Their baby daughter, Willow, was instrumental in popping the big question which took place at a lookout between Inverell and Sydney.

“Sean had left a note in Willow’s capsule on her lap written from her saying dad was wondering if a) I wanted the same last name as her and dad, b) what I was doing for the next 100 or so years and if I wanted to hang out with him, c) if I wanted to get married soon or d) all of the above,” smiles Stephanie.

The pair from Sydney chose to hold their special day in the garden of Sean’s parents home in Castle Hill. Preparations were a family affair. “Sean, myself and Sean’s family did absolutely everything for the wedding,” explains Stephanie. “We spent four or five months preparing the garden and growing white flowers for decorating.”

Sean’s sister, who was also a bridesmaid, created the bouquets, buttonholes, table and marquee decorations, cake flowers and ceremony arrangements. “I owe so much to Sean’s family for making my wedding day the most amazing fairytale wedding possible.”

“I wanted a classic/rustic wedding which wasn’t too over the top,” says Stephanie. “I like things quite simple.”
