Jade & Simon Loxley on Bellbird Hill

These two blew me away with their Blue Mountains engagement session last October, so I knew Jade & Simon’s rustic & country themed wedding at Loxley on Bellbird Hill would be just as amazing. Following months of smoke and bushfires in the area, their big day was blessed with a refreshing and mild dose of rain. The clouds conveniently pausing just long enough for their outdoor ceremony to take place. Scroll down to see more…


“Loxley was the first venue we looked at. We had a few other places to check out, but we both loved Loxley so much, we decided to cancel the others. It was an easy decision for us, the location was stunning, we loved the country [and] rustic appearance of the venue, and the staff were so wonderful and helpful.”


“Finding my dress was pretty quick and easy. It was actually the 2nd dress I tried on – and I just knew it was the one. It also helped walking out and seeing my mum and a few of my bridesmaids in tears. I loved having my girls there to help with this big decision. The only negative was that I couldn’t have everyone with me as most shops set limits on the number of visitors.”


“I had quite a few favourite moments. Firstly, walking down the aisle with my father and seeing Simon tearing up at the alter. Then listening to my husband’s beautiful vows. I also loved walking into the reception and seeing all our family and friends standing up and cheering us on, plus all the wonderful speeches.”


“Have a month-to-month schedule! It makes life super easy and that way you can also control budget/ how much you spend each month. We had absolutely no stress organising our wedding, it was such an easy and fun experience for the both of us.”
