At their Dookie home, Lauren and husband Wayne can look outside and see the spot where they said “I do”. The couple’s wedding ceremony on January 4, 2014 took place on their half-acre block, which provided the perfect space to create their dream of a rustic-style wedding with unique handmade decorations. “We just thought it would be special to have it at home and in years to come we can look out the back window and remember that we got married there,” Lauren said.

“I wanted hay bales for seating and many different touches that I probably couldn’t have had at other locations.” Lauren made the bonbonnieres, menus and rose-petal holders while Wayne crafted wooden signs and cake stands. “Having the ceremony at our home meant we could set up the vision we had for our wedding,” Lauren said.
Wayne also surprised Lauren by fulfilling another wish she had dreamed of: having a wedding photo taken on the back of the hay truck on their property. A tractor was needed to lift the couple onto the truck, plus the photographer had to take the photo from a vantage point. The couple’s reception was held at The Woolshed, Kialla. Lauren and her attendants looked stunning in their gowns from Brides and Maids, Shepparton, in this fun portrait. “I had always joked about having a wedding photo on the truck, it was such a surprise.”
