Alysia & Kim

Alysia and Kym’s countryside wedding was anything but black and white. Infused with Alysia’s love of colour and all things vintage, the couple went back to the place they love most in the world and held a private wedding in Taggerty, Victoria for 110 guests. Not only was the wedding filled with the presence of Kym’s late father, who loved the farm as much as the couple, but it was filled with the couple’s own love of life with so many beautiful touches and flashes of their personalities (plus the bride wore an ombre wedding gown, how beautiful is that?)

Alysia and Kym married after 10 and a half years of dating as high school sweethearts.

Photography of Alysia and Kym was captured by Fi Mims who have captured the vintage chic of today’s wedding with such a clear, beautiful style. Coordination of the day was by Ed Dixon Food Design.

Alysia and Kym held their wedding on Kym’s family property in Taggerty, Victoria . Alysia says “A favourite place of the bride and groom, it was also a favourite place of the groom’s late father Bill, it wasn’t a question as to if the wedding would be held there, more a given.”

Of their photographer, Alysia says “Fi’s eye for detail was perfect, it felt like there was a real interest in our day. Fi made the me feel very comfortable as I am known for being shy in front of the camera.”

The festivities were followed by a truly scrumptious reception in the farm’s shed which highlighted the vintage china, accessories and props the bride had been collecting. Alysia recalls “When Kym finally asked me to marry him little did he know that there had been years prior of collecting vintage pieces for our special day. When the engagement was official my bridesmaids and I continued collecting beautiful vintage crockery, cutlery, vases, games, typewriters and more for the special day.” The collection continued on after the day, Alysia explains “After the wedding (and on the day) there were so many lovely comments from the guests about the details of the as well as many suggestions about what could be done with the crockery once the wedding was over.  However I already had plans for this and so the story of Vintage Lane Crockery and Prop Hire began, officially launching in January 2012,”
