‘Cause I like you: The bohemian wedding of Natalie & Clayton

Wedding: 05/04/2014

Posted by Anna | 24 September, 2014

The bucket list for Natalie O’Sullivan and Clayton Smith can’t be too long now.

Before they were even engaged the pair had travelled Australia in their home “Urvan”, spent time living interstate, worked as FIFO employees for the mines and had their son, Cooper. “Not long after, we welcomed Cooper and a year later, on a sneaky weekend away alone together, Clayton [31] proposed,” remembers Natalie, 27.

Their bohemian wedding on April 5, 2014, welcomed 116 guests to East Melbourne. “Clayton’s dad is a minister and married us, making it extra special as we said our vows. We had the most stunning ceremony held in an outdoor amphi-theatre on a five-acre property, overlooking a billabong in Alphington, Victoria,” says Natalie.

The property is owned by the couple’s friends. “So lucky to have my best friend’s family own this amazing property and allowed us to use it for the day,” praises Natalie. “They put so much effort to make it absolutely perfect.” Their reception took place at Eastern Hill Dining Hall.

The bride’s flowing, understated gown from Grace Loves Lace was complemented with accessories from Samantha Wills. “The day had a relaxed bohemian style, with the girls in flowing white dresses, the boys in grey suits. Of course the star of the day was our little boy, Cooper.”

The couple were over the moon with Tricky Dan Photography. “Daniel Fewchuk is such an amazing photographer and person. He flew down from Sydney for our wedding and is my sister-in-law’s cousin,” says Natalie.

“I did a lot of details for the day myself and we were so lucky to have so many talented family and friends who helped us,” praises Natalie.
