Their love story began at the tender age of 16 and 17, with every moment full of laughter and love since. They have built their lives around caring for others: Alex is a paramedic and Cal is a firefighter, so when it came to their wedding day, everyone wanted to give back.
They wanted their wedding to be a fun and relaxed day – filled with family, friends & food. So, their ceremony was conducted by a family friend, in front of the Sage’s Cottage - and it was absolutely brimming with long-awaited emotion.
Styled by Woops a Daisy, this was a Pinterest-worthy boho wedding, with Alex wearing a stunning lace dress thanks to Spell Bride – complete with floral headpiece and macramé floral wrap. Lawn games were scattered across the lawn at the barn, and the iconic Woops a Daisy red velvet lounge setting took centre stage for guests to relax.
The festivities began with a massive grazing table, filled with antipasto, cheese, fruit, cured meats, bread and dips, followed by their cocktail-style reception. The highlight was the interactive food station, where the Going Gourmet chef came out to cook the barbeque in front of the guests. Food aromas filled the air, complete with fire tricks and all.
Their reception was a big party, with Angus Legg entertaining the guests with his amazing voice. They ended their wedding with a bang, Alex donning a “wifey” leather jacket for their sparkler send off.

How they work. You arrive first with the videographer and photographer, facing your back to where your partner will be arriving. When your partner arrives, they walk towards you and tap you on the shoulder, you then turn around and have that “aisle moment” and share that first look, just between the two of you.
"WOW is the first word that came to mind when I think of how amazing the venue and staff are at Baxter Barn! I planned my wedding from overseas and without viewing the venue first but it blew all my expectations! I relied on reviews to make that choice which is why I feel really compelled to say that if you choose this venue then you will not be disappointed!
Everything from the smallest detail to the important bits (like the incredible food that the chef offers!) was considered. I can't imagine my day running anywhere as smoothly as it did without the incredible support that Amy and Lucy provided to us. This is far more than a venue, the staff guided and helped in any way they possibly could to ensure that everything turned out just the way we wanted it to. I can't speak more highly enough of our experience at Baxter Barn and each member of their team who pulled together on the day to provide the best possible service. You know it's been a good wedding when even your guests are commenting on how great the venue and staff were
THANKS AGAIN BAXTER BARN"
