Bring a little bit of the country to your wedding day by adding rustic touches in a contrasting colour palette of red and black.

How to recreate the look for your wedding

  • > Choose the right venues. Have your ceremony outside and walk up a hessian aisle lined with tree stumps and flowers with hay bale seating for your guests. For your reception venue, look for places with raw materials like a friend’s farm shed or Sticks and Stones at Seaforth.
  • > Set your colour scheme and theme in the way you dress the Bridal Party. Red dresses for the bridesmaids will look striking against black suits for the groomsmen. And don’t forget Akubras for the Groom and Groomsmen.
  • > Consider using Australian natives for your bouquets and table decorations.
