A stylish handmade wedding in a greenhouse by Lara Hotz Photography

It’s always easy to spot a gorgeous wedding by the talented Lara Hotz — her couples march to the beat of their own drums, are impossibly stylish and most of all, are full of smiles on their wedding day. Today’s couple, captured of course by Lara Hotz, takes stylish handmade weddings to a whole different level! Jemima and Mitchell were married at the Palm House in the Royal Botanic Gardens of Sydney. Their sweet, intimate ceremony was followed by a totally DIY wedding reception in the Palm House that was decorated with handmade herb garlands and sweet flower arrangements.

Jemima is every bit a stunning boho bride in her floral Erdem wedding dress, and Mitchell kept it dapper with a classic black suit. They even opted to eschew tradition and get ready together before their ceremony. Now that’s the type of free-spirited, modern couple we love! Read on for more beautiful details and moments from Jemima and Mitchell’s special day…

The ultimate wedding ceremony planning checklist

The wedding ceremony — in an ideal world, this would have been one of the first things you would have planned for the big day, seeing as well… the wedding ceremony is kind of the main point of your wedding, right? However, if this is something you’re scrambling to plan a few weeks before the wedding day you’re not alone — after endless email exchanges with your caterer, coordinator and photographer, planning your ceremony might not have been high on your list of priorities!

Once you sit down to tackle wedding ceremony planning, you might find that there’s a lot more moving parts to the 30-minute ceremony than you might have anticipated. You’ll need to set up a rehearsal time, touch base with your officiant, find readers and ushers, write vows… and that’s all without even mentioning the decor and details! No need for panic though — as a bride who’s going through the exact same scenario, I found it was helpful to break down the event into a wedding ceremony planning checklist with sub-tasks and to-do’s to stay organized. With this cheat sheet, planning your ceremony will go from feeling insurmountable to being incredibly simple!
