How They Met
Felicity and Liam's love story proves that it is possible to meet your significant other on social media. He messaged her on Facebook and they met up a few chats and a few nights later and six years later, they got married!

The Proposal
Liam's proposal was cute, inventive and very romantic. It was the New Year's Eve morning in 2015 and the two of them were fishing off the jetty in Liam's dad's backyard in Bermagui. When she lost her bait, he secretly attached a paper fish to her reel and it said "What a catch! Will you marry me?"

The Engagement And Wedding Rings
Felicity wanted to use parts of her grandmother's engagement ring to create unique pieces. She included two small diamonds in her engagement ring design and the gold was used for the bands. Everything was made by Vangeli.

The Venue
They wed at the Yarralumla Woolshed which was the perfect wedding venue for their bohemian real wedding. The ceremony took place outside, amid the towering trees, while the reception was held at the shed which featured a spacious open plan and a high roof with exposed wooden beams.

The Styling
Felicity and Liam had found plenty of wedding inspiration on Pinterest and Instagram. They decided to go for a bohemian theme and styled the venue with mismatched chairs, rustic centerpieces, wooden details and suspended tree branches covered in lights.

The Bride's Gown
The bride wore a bohemian lace wedding dress by the Spell & The Gypsy Collective and styled it with a lush floral crown, jewellery by Ishka, shoes by Windsor Smith for the ceremony and Adidas Superstar trainers for the reception.

The Groom's Suit
The groom and his groomsmen wore navy blue custom-made suits by Nana Fashions.

The Bridesmaid Dresses
The bridesmaids were wearing mini white dresses and lace kaftans by Spell & The Gypsy Collective.

The Flowers
Bouquets, centrepieces and floral crowns created by Moxom & Whitney perfectly complemented the dresses and the wedding venue.

The Wedding Cake
To match the bohemian vibe of the wedding, the couple ordered a semi-naked wedding cake from Pip & Lou which was adorned with fresh flowers.

The Wedding Stationery
Felicity designed wedding invitations, "thank you" cards and other stationery herself via Vistaprint.
