Real Wedding – Rebekah & Zach, Trawool VIC  


From a hilariously sweet proposal among the cows to the chic country celebration, Rebekah and Zach know how to wow. From the groom’s impressive entrance in the tray of a vintage ute to Rebekah’s killer look, this was an event big in impact with epic amounts of fun.

For us, it’s the look on Zach’s face as his beautiful bride stepped toward him. A vision in her Luci di Bella custom gown, Rebekah was every bit the glowing goddess. The brief for her dress was simple but a little extra – and Luci rose to the challenge, creating a stunning two-piece with a gossamer overshirt to elevate the entire look and transition perfectly from the I Do’s to the dance floor.

Soft dried grasses, clouds of cream roses and pops of burnt sienna make for textural floral arrangements to perfectly frame the short but super sweet ceremony. The Trawool Estate (one of our favourite locations) was the perfect oasis to celebrate their day.

And as the guests made their way into the reception, the newlyweds took a moment to enjoy a drink together in the moody surrounds of the glorious Trawool Estate bar, captured in noir style perfection by Charmore Creations. To witness the whole divine day, scroll on.


The meeting.

We met at a bar on a night out in Echuca. Zach was visiting home from living in Darwin at the time, we continued talking nonstop, and the rest is history.


The ‘one’.

Once we started talking, we just didn’t stop; we both felt so comfortable and just knew.


The proposal.

Zach proposed one random Wednesday afternoon. I was about to start milking, so we went to lock in a group of cows, and he told me we needed to check the water trough. After I checked the trough, I turned around, and Zach was down on one knee, kneeling in cow poo. Almost 700 acres, and he had to kneel in some poo.


Planning process.

After we locked in the venue, we fairly quickly ticked off the rest of the vendors. We were pretty relaxed with the whole process and were very lucky with everyone we booked. There were a few more lockdowns and a lot of cancelled weddings after we had locked everything in; luckily, we were pretty organized.


Style inspiration. 

We just wanted our wedding to feel like us, so we definitely knew something outdoorsy in the bush was the right choice, but we also wanted something a little different. Trawool Estate brought our love for the outdoors together with a modern, chic venue.

I wanted the day to be timeless, so that when we look back at photos, nothing will age. So, we went with a black and white colour palette and then brought some neutral colours in with the flowers.

We are definitely visual people; I had followed Ivory Tribe for a long time, and getting to see all of the real weddings throughout Instagram helped so much.

Also, we had a film camera on the day; we got some great candid shots which were fun too.


The ceremony.

We wanted to keep our ceremony short and sweet. Alison, our celebrant, did exactly that.


The outfit. 

My dress was an absolute dream. I always knew I wanted something plain but a little bit extra at the same time, and Luci at Luci Di Bella exceeded all expectations.

They make your gown specifically to your measurements, and since I am 5.2 was absolutely amazing. Everything fit perfectly, and the quality was amazing.


Favourite moments.

The whole day blew us away, so it’s hard to choose just one, but walking down the aisle with my dad to Zach was a moment I’ll never forget. Between the ceremony and reception, we were up in our suite with our bridal party having the best time. Also, getting to see all of our friends and family who came from all over Australia to celebrate with us.

In the morning, the bridal party, my mum and my sister-in-law, all did yoga on Trawool Estate’s grounds, which set the day up perfectly. It was a great way to wake up and move your body, as well as setting a chill tone for the day.


Meaning of marriage.

It means that we will never have to do life alone and get to spend every day with our best friend.


Wedding soundtrack.

Aisle: Kiss Me by Sixpence None the Richer

Reception entry: Sending me your loving by Jungle Giants

We wanted fun and upbeat songs, and since we weren’t having a first dance, we made our entry song boppy enough so we could do a little boogie before everyone joined us on the dance floor.


Words of wisdom.

Don’t sweat the small things!

I had someone tell me to pretend that you are the wedding guest – just go and have fun, as no one will know the things that I had planned that did or didn’t work out.

We found most of our vendors on Instagram; they were all local to our region, which was important to us.

We could not recommend each and every one of them enough, especially the team at The Trawool Estate. Jemma, who was our point of contact, was so on to everything and made the day run so smoothly. I didn’t look at the time once; their service, food and facilities are impeccable.
