In April 2016, Tara and Jarrod got married in their hometown of Dubbo. Whilst the girls went with a more traditional morning of the wedding with bubbly and makeup chairs, the boys were up early out on the lake for a morning wakeboard session.
Tara and Jarrod opted for a simple but elegant reception with a white palate. A beautiful single rose with a floating candle stood atop a round mirror, a wooden table number and easel holding the menu rounded off the centrepieces.
As the wedding was on the grooms family property they chose to keep guests around whilst they went for photos, and had a perfect area set up for canapes and drinks. A band played in the garden while guests enjoyed a cold one (or two) and some canapes in a more rustic country setting with barrels and cushions sprawled around.
