Nestled in the picturesque landscape of Rocklea Farm, Briana and Liam’s wedding was a vibrant celebration of love, laughter, and lifelong commitment. Their journey to this joyous day began on a memorable night in November 2014, when a post-exam party crash turned into a fateful encounter, marked by shared birthdays and instant chemistry.

Briana and Liam’s path to matrimony took a charmingly unconventional route. The proposal, spurred by Liam’s impulsive decision post-financial unification, was as endearingly chaotic as it was heartfelt. Amidst homebound workdays and house-hunting during the COVID-19 pandemic, Liam orchestrated a lakeside proposal that, despite a few comedic hiccups involving their dog Winson, culminated in a touching and resolute “yes.”

The planning of their wedding, although not rushed, was meticulously savoured by Briana, who delved into Pinterest and Instagram for inspiration. Wedding expos proved invaluable, offering face-to-face interactions with potential vendors and shaping a vision that resonated with their relaxed and colourful personalities.

The style of their wedding was a direct reflection of Briana and Liam themselves: laid-back, colourful, and full of life. The couple aimed for a wedding that felt genuinely ‘them,’ achieving this through a relaxed atmosphere and vibrant decor. Briana’s dress, a serendipitous find from Embrace Bridal, was the epitome of simplicity and elegance, adorned with back lace details and a bow, epitomising the wedding’s ethos of understated beauty.

The day itself was a sequence of unforgettable moments, with the dance floor becoming the epicentre of joy. The Italian cocktail-style menu was a hit, with every dish standing out, embodying the plentiful and delectable essence of their celebration.

Though not steeped in tradition, their wedding included heartfelt dances that added layers of intimacy and joy. An unexpected rain shower on the day added a cosy, intimate vibe to their barn celebration, bringing everyone closer together in a shared, joyful experience.

Their wedding soundtrack perfectly encapsulated their journey and emotions, with selections like Haley Reinhart’s rendition of “Can’t Help Falling in Love” setting a romantic tone for the ceremony, and the energetic “Cuff it” by Beyonce marking their reception entry, culminating in Calum Scott’s “You are the Reason” for their first dance.

In a day filled with laughter, dancing, and unexpected twists, the Rocklea Farm staff shone, seamlessly addressing every minor hiccup and ensuring the day remained perfect. From dress stains to broken straps and shoes, the team handled it all, earning high praise from the couple and their guests alike.

Briana and Liam’s wedding at Rocklea Farm was not just an event; it was a celebration of their unique story, brought to life by the dedicated efforts of professionals like Sarah from Ceremonies by Sarah, Nic Stephens’ photography, Lachy Films’ videography, and the vibrant styling and floral arrangements by Soul and Sage Events. Every detail, from the food by Pasta Face Food Truck to the entertainment by Geelong Entertainment Services, contributed to creating a day that was truly theirs.

As Briana and Liam step into their future, their wedding remains a vibrant testament to their love, the joy of shared moments, and the beauty of embracing life’s journey together, surrounded by love and laughter at Rocklea Farm.
