Angelica Peady {Outdoor Vegan Eco wedding} Sharon and Jim in Dural

Sharon and Jim’s passion for a vegan lifestyle bought this American gal and Aussie guy together and as they say, the rest is history.

You may recognize these two beautiful faces from our kitchen themed engagement shoot ‘Baked with Love’ – this time however the team at Angelica Peady Photography was finally shooting their ‘big day’.

It’s no secret to our regular blog readers that we love weddings that are heart-felt, authentic celebrations of the couple and Sharon and Jim’s nuptials were just that.

Held at a friend’s private home in Castle Hill, the couple catered the wedding themselves with a vegan feast. Their intimate ceremony included a secret handshake and friend playing the music of David Bowie and the styling for their reception was bright, fresh and perfect for an alfresco lunch. (There were in fact so many adorable, finer details at Sharon and Jim”s wedding that we intend to feature these later this month in a separate post.)

Sharon’s amazing dress was a true talking piece. Her one of a kind couture gown was made from hemp silk and designed by a friend who is an artist. It interestingly featured embroidery that heralded inspiration from scribbley bark gum trees and a dramatic ruffled fishtail in rich blues and greens. Her fabulous shoes added an extra pop of colour and the tones of the limey green bouquet were the perfect compliment to the bush backdrop of their ceremony.

Sharon and Jim have now flown to Las Vegas to have their ‘American’ wedding with Sharon’s friends and family – so until they return we wish them safe travels and hope they are enjoying doing it all again!

Congratulations to a very special couple. It was a privilege to capture your wedding for you.
