Julie and manda's DIY Wedding in the Blue Mountains 

Don't go to evans lookout!!!

Come straight to TIMBERLINE at 158 Evans Lookout Road 4:45pm for a 5 pm start! 

 

As you were with the wet weather gear. You'll still need brollies, rain gear, jumpers and woolly hats for the cold, your jar, your plate, your fork and your joie de vivre. 

Let's Get Married

Julie and manda's DIY Wedding in the Blue Mountains 

Our wedding is going to be a DIY festival, which means that we are all making this happen together. There's no caterers or decorators or the like. It's a down-home pitch-in kind of thing where everyone has a role to play in making our biggish day work.

 

We don't want wedding presents as such, but we would love for you to give us the wedding itself. We can't think of a better way to make the day special.

Hey there, friends and family

Hope you've found your double denim outfit and you've booked your digs for our wedding party at Timberline on December 2. 

 

Meanwhile, here on diyfestival.org we'll be communicating with you about stuff you need to know and changes to plans that might need to happen - mostly for the weather, but sometimes, probably, because we've just remembered something we forgot to tell you. 

 

Right now, here's the plan so far...

step 1 - what to bring

We need everyone to bring their own gear to eat off and drink from. Nothing precious, mind. 

Time to scrounge around in the back of the cupboard or nip up to Vinnies.

 

For each person in your party, as it were, bring a plate, and a fork and a jam jar or two. 

 

 

Only bring stuff

you don't mind leaving behind

It's all hands on deck to make a DIY festival wedding, but it's a simple enough four-step process. Here's how it works. 

get together the things you need to bring

1

volunteer for something

2

Don't buy us a pressie - chip in for the party

3

step 2 - Volunteer

To run this shindig, we'd be very grateful if some of you lovelies could pitch in a bit.*  Either before the big day, on the day or, for the most selfless act of all, the day after, for the cleanup. 

 

Click on one of these buttons below to volunteer some time and energy to help out on Friday, Saturday or Sunday. 

 

*We don't need everyone coming to volunteer - some of you are travelling big distances and that's a big contribution already. If you can help out that's great, but if it's not practical, no worries. 

Friday

Setting up

saturday

Loads to do on the big day. It'll be in shifts so everyone has a good time.

Sunday

Making breakfast and cleaning up

step 3 - chip in

Our wedding party is a good old barbecue.  We are supporting our local providores by getting them to supply food and wine and so on. We don't want pressies as such, but we'd love you to chip in to fund the festivities. 

 

If you'd like to contribute, just click on the piccie below that you'd most like to chip in on. 

We'll send you the details you need to make an oh-so-newfangled EFT transfer. 

 

RSVP

If you haven't already, please let us know you are coming. We are headed to the UK on Wednesday 18 October and we really need to know numbers. Ta. 

 

stuff we want to remind you about

Parking

There's loads of parking around Timbo, on Evans Lookout Road and on Walls Cave Road. You can park at Timbo and walk down to the Lookout or you might prefer to drive down and back - it's a fair walk. Maybe 30 mins or so. 

weather

It can do anything up here and there's every chance it will. Best bring sunscreen, scarves, woolly hats and jumpers, and wet weather gear. If there's drizzle, or horizontal rain, or bushfires we have plans B, C and D, but we'll let you know as needed. 

 

what to wear

Double denim? Easy as. Two things made of denim on your body. a bit hipster, but also a bit daggy. As you might expect, we recommend sensible shoes. Good for dancing on gravel and handy if you encounter a snake.

Thank you 

This has been a particularly even-more-than-usually crazy year for us. And then, the run-up to our wedding got even busier at the eleventh hour when we decided to buy a new property and sell Twice Lucky and Timberline to fund it before we get married and go to the UK. You have to carpe your diem and all, but it can make things very tricky. 

 

So, a big thank you to all the brilliant Blackheath folk - and a few fab souls from the big smoke who've been licking the house into shape for sale and for the big day, and putting their more-than-capable hands up for loads of things that need to be done.  A special big thanks to Bec who is officially IN CHARGE. 

 

And thanks to you all for coming along to celebrate with us in December. We look forward to sharing this big day with you all. It's going to be lovely.
