This family focused wedding inspiration shoot from the talented Byron Loves Fawn Photography duo is probably the longest feature I’ve ever shared here on Burnett’s Boards and with good reason! This Australian dream team of vendors created one of the most heartwarming, loving, and inspirational celebrations ever.
Whether you have a big family, a small one, or if you consider your closest friends your family – joyous get-togethers are always a blast. Having a family centered wedding that focuses on the culture of your family is the perfect way to celebrate your wedding with those you love most.
For a family themed wedding choose a venue that has special meaning to you all like where your parents got married or a home that you have your yearly celebrations at. Include members of your family wherever you can and ask your photographer to take portraits of everyone, but especially parents and grandparents that you can treasure forever.
One fabulous detail that is coming up is a unique take on a family tree. The family tree you’re about to see was created using string wrapped around a tree and photos from all the generations of the family were placed around it.
Instead of a traditional wedding cake, ask your aunts and friends to each contribute a pie! I love this idea so much. It adds character to this styled shoot and who wouldn’t want to have Nanna’s famous peach pie at their wedding?!
Family style tables at your reception are a must and the paper placemats with each family member’s name on them are a fabulous way to stay chic while keeping a relaxed and intimate atmosphere.
If you love what this team of vendors did here then be sure to check out another shoot of theirs I’ve had the honor to feature here!
