Real Wedding in Moama ~ Lucy & David
The beautiful couple Lucy & David had originally planned on a large wedding, however with the impact of COVID-19, this proved to be a bit of a challenge. Instead, they chose to have the most beautifully intimate wedding celebration on the Murray River. Another little spanner in the works, were the record temperatures of 46 degrees, needless to say, it was next-level hot! So, they had to move most elements of the wedding day inside, and opt for family photos to be taken before the ceremony, that way Freddy, their adorable 9 month old baby was able to be part of the photos too!
When reflecting back on our intimate November 2020 wedding we still smile from ear to ear.

How did ABIA help plan your Wedding?
We saw that Mickala from Pure Mac Photography was named photographer of the year by ABIA Weddings! We couldnt look past her stunning photos.
"Dave had designed my sapphire and diamond engagement ring in secret and proposed out of the blue on a Monday afternoon after work! I was so shocked but so happy!"
The Wedding Destination
Moama is such a beautiful place to consider getting married. Its right on the Murray River and there are some stunning accommodation options on the water.
Lucy & David rented a huge house right on the river that the majority of the people attending their wedding could stay at. Junction (the wedding venue) was a faultless location for their ceremony and reception. They have a beautiful outdoor garden and birdcage area and their private dining was ideal for their intimate guests of 25 people. "We couldnt fault their food and service".
The Wedding Day
"It really was the best day of our lives. David and I had originally planned a much larger event, but COVID19 was making it extremely difficult to plan and we eventually gave up on the idea. Though some months on, and all the stars aligning at once (borders opening the week of!), we were able to get married with our immediate family and a small number of friends in attendance in Moama on the Murray River in New South Wales."
"We held our ceremony and reception in a private dining area at Junction Moama, which was absolutely perfect. Everyone in attendance stayed for a long weekend and a much overdue catch up after a year of lockdowns and border closures. Anyone who is considering having an intimate wedding we could not recommend it enough! Zero stress and quality time made for the most incredible weekend as a new family."
Favourite Wedding Moment
"Our favourite part of the wedding was the fact that it was so relaxing and stress free. We were able to spend quality time with everyone in attendance and nothing was rushed. This was really highlighted by the incredible Wedding Vendor Team (below) we had to help us put together our weekend and made it so enjoyable."

"Mickala Brady of Pure Mac Photography is incredible; her photos have absolutely blown us away, especially considering we both dont really like having our photo taken at the best of times. She really is magical and made the photo experience fun, which we werent expecting!"
"Makaila from Clementine Florals created a beautiful white rose and orchid bouquet and button-holes for us last minute".
"Courtney Edgar did a beautiful (sweat-proof) job on our makeup"
