DATE TO REMEMBER
When Katie Guthridge and Paul West locked eyes for the first time on October 24, 2015, they couldn’t wait to be in each other’s grasp. The pair, who wanted the special occasion to have a music festival atmosphere, tied the knot at Mt Duneed Estate in front of a parquetry backdrop they made together on a friend’s farm. “Everything was absolutely perfect,” Katie says.

LOVE STORY
Katie wore a lace bodice and fitted skirt at the ceremony but switched into a design more conducive for dancing at the reception, which was decorated with geometric touches and copper detailing by Nomad Styling. Her three bridesmaids chose their own dresses based on colour swatches. The newlyweds made sure to spend moments alone, slipping away from their 120 guests to enjoy a quiet cocktail together. Katie, a physical education teacher, says she married a beautiful, genuine soul. “It started out with his crazy, fuzzy hair but once I got to know him, his caring personality and thoughtful nature really won me over,” she says.
