Wee find: The loveliest wedding of 2012

I know we’re only six weeks into 2012, but surely Rin and Joe’s joyful backyard nuptials take the (rainbow) cake for Wedding of the Year. The Melbourne couple got married in a heartfelt celebration of love on the weekend, and featured the most incredible array of original handmade details. Of course, I would have expected nothing less – after all, the Mum of the Bride is Australia’s Queen of Crafts, Pip Lincolne, of Meet me at Mike‘s fame.

The beautiful day was the result of the most creative of team efforts – head over to Pip’s blog to read all about Rin and Joe’s dream team. I especially adore the old-school cake table, which featured an array of retro children’s cakes from the original Australian Women’s Weekly Children’s Birthday Cake Book, as well as the magnificent rainbow wedding cake (and not just because one of my mates helped make it!).

Such a super-sweet couple, right?

For more drool-worthy wedding goodness, take a peek at the full gallery by photographer Eric Ronald, and read the full story at Meet me at Mike’s.

    It is a lovely wedding. Feels so relaxed – and the flower arrangements are very cute. Love the suitcase full of plants.

      Me too. I think I may have to pinch that idea and set up something similar on my balcony! Genius. xx

    So sweet and gorgeous I like the simplicity yet full of details setting, cakes, flowers etc…

      Exactly. Simple but rich with beautiful details. xx

    Gorgeous! I love how Australian it feels too (but real Australia, not the cliche) – it couldn’t be anywhere else in the world.

      Awww shucks, Miss Jones! But that little birdy’s wedding was particularly special because *someone* was a particularly awesome bridesmaid and made a particularly awesome speech! xx

    Rebecca, you have done it again, bringing us photos & details of such a fabulous Wedding. I wish the young couple ‘every blessing’. I hope this event will inspire many others to look at having an alternative, fun twist to their great day.

    What would the Kardashians make of this. A celebration of simplicity, unpretenciousness, creativity and, most importantly, love. I wish them well.
