A blossoming romance

By Bride and Groom 06 April 2018

A romantic picnic proposal blossomed into a picturesque garden wedding for Jasmine Smith and Andrew Marshall.

The groom’s family home was the fitting backdrop for a celebration of young love shared with family and friends.

Picnic perfection

After a series of amazing dates including skydiving, salsa dancing and treasure hunts, Andrew knew he had to organise something incredibly special to pop the question.

Armed with sparkling wine and strawberries, he created a romantic yet casual picnic in the backyard.

“It caught me completely off guard and he had designed the gorgeous ring and everything without me knowing,” Jasmine said.

Flower power

Working with children with disabilities, Jasmine made a meaningful choice when selecting her flowers supplier.

GO Floral Enterprises – Goulburn Options, a disability support service, created the vibrant bouquets and table arrangements.

“I thought it would be great to support them and they did an amazing job,” she said.

DIY bride

Jasmine used her origami skills to add a personal touch to the wedding décor.

With help from her bridesmaids, she created delightful rose petal holders and bonbonniere boxes using multi-coloured patterns.

Completing the sweet and simple table settings, the boxes were filled with M&Ms for Marshall and Skittles for Smith.

Childhood nostalgia

A favourite film was brought to life when Andrew and Jasmine shared their first dance as husband and wife.

After a few lessons and hours of practice, the newlyweds performed a choreographed bridal waltz to Aladdin’s A Whole New World.
