Liz and Joel

I think couples are never going to stop inspiring me – which is pretty lucky because the first real wedding we’re showcasing for 2012 is jam packed full of inspiration. So inspirational that even the tall wire clad walls of the reception suddenly became beautiful and fun. Today’s backyard wedding is so full of colour and life- it’s the perfect way to kick off the new year!

Photos today are by You Can’t Be Serious who just know how to have fun and capture it in every single photograph- they can’t help but make you smile!

Liz remarks ” I think one of the most special things about the wedding was the week  before, having our close friends and families help to prepare the backyard and decorate….so many hearts, I was worried I might have bitten off a bit more than I could chew after the first afternoon of wool wrapping but with everyone’s help it looked amazing!”
