Bonnie + Harry


Bonnie and Harry’s wedding was nothing short of a love-filled Wedfest extravaganza that unfolded over an entire weekend. Nestled in the scenic embrace of Harry’s parent’s private property in Bridgewater, the celebration allowed guests to immerse themselves in the festivities by offering the option of glamping. Underneath the green canopies of gum-trees along the river, the glamping tents added a touch of magic to the landscape. With the expert guidance of their incredible wedding planner, Georgey from Hosted, every detail of this festival of love was curated to perfection—fun, bright, bold, and sparkly. Add in some top-notch vendors from Bendigo, this dream day turned into a reality that surpassed all expectations.

How did they meet?

Cue the high school nostalgia because Bonnie and Harry’s love story began at a mutual friend’s house party. Despite initially being just friends for a couple of years (much to Harry’s playful dismay), their paths took an interesting turn after graduating from year 12.

Bonnie embarked on a gap year overseas, but distance couldn’t dull the connection. They stayed connected through messages, maintaining their friendship the entire time. It wasn’t until Bonnie’s return, marked by a spontaneous kiss after yet another friend’s party, that they decided they were a bit more than just friends. And so, from that unexpected smooch, Bonnie and Harry ventured into the world of love, evolving from friends to partners—and the rest is a beautiful history that continues to unfold every day!

The proposal story.

Ah, let the holiday magic unfold! It was two days before Christmas in 2022 when Harry orchestrated the proposal that would become a cherished chapter in Bonnie and Harry’s love story. The stage was set at Harry’s parents’ farm, the very same spot that would later host their beautiful wedding. Under the guise of “drinks” and “setting up” for the joint Christmas celebration with both families, Harry smoothly steered Bonnie into the romantic narrative he had carefully crafted.

The unsuspecting Bonnie soon found herself on a walk towards the river, the picturesque backdrop for what was about to unfold. With a box peeking out of his back pocket, Harry’s nerves were palpable.  As the sun dipped below the horizon, Harry dropped to one knee, and Bonnie, realizing this wasn’t just any walk, said a resounding “yes!”. All of the heartfelt exchanges followed, as they watched the sun set at their favorite place in the world. Little did Bonnie know, Harry’s parents and siblings were in on the secret, patiently waiting inside with champagne and flowers to celebrate the newly engaged couple as they returned!

Fav part of the day?


Bonnie and Harry’s wedding day unfolded like a symphony of love and joy, with a medley of magical moments that left hearts brimming with happiness. Let’s dive into the highlight reel:

  • The first look at the spot where they got engaged, with their wedding party in tears in the background, set the emotional tone for the day.
  • Bonnie, feeling a bit awkward during her aisle walk, decided to break the ice by waving and lifting her flowers for a celebratory “WOOO!”—a moment met with cheers and claps from their delighted guests.
  • The wedding party’s grand entrance stole the show, with surprises ranging from shots of Fireball to costume changes and choreographed dances. A Beyoncé moment with “Crazy in Love” and a spontaneous dance party added an extra layer of magic.
  • Harry’s dad’s speech and toast, featuring a bottle of Dom Perignon from 1996 (the year they were both born), became a poignant and exquisite moment.
  • A dance floor filled with father/daughter duos after the speech added a special touch, with uncles, cousins, brothers, and in-laws joining in the celebration.
  • The serendipitous full moon on their wedding night peeking out behind the clouds during their first dance added an extra layer of enchantment.
  • The musical entertainers, a violinist and a DJ/saxophonist, collaborated seamlessly during a crossover, creating an electrifying fusion of melodies that marked a standout highlight.
