What better way to find out why a Northern Territory wedding is the ultimate wedding experience than to talk all things romance with a real bride.
We caught up with Meg who was married in a truly stunning wedding ceremony at Simpsons Gap. Let’s find out what Meg had to say about her epic desert wedding to Lucas.
Alice Springs attraction
When Meg was 22 she packed up her VW Beetle and dog and set off to Alice Springs looking for an adventure. Growing up in South Australia her family did lots of camping in the Northern Territory, and Meg felt the “outback was quite familiar to her, it felt like home”.
She thought she’d only be there three months! Then she met Lucas, a local musician and music teacher who grew up in Alice Springs. He was very arty and she asked him for guitar lessons. This was the beginning of something really special. Meg might not have had much success progressing her music career, but she was winning on the love side of things.
In Meg and Lucas’s story they went on to have three gorgeous children. When Meg fell pregnant with their first child Jack they had to move back to Adelaide for his birth and ended up staying in South Australia. But their connectedness to Alice Springs and the desert never waned.
When asked about her reasons for getting married in the Territory desert, Meg said, “We had already bought a house, we already had three kids, we were already living like a married couple, so I was looking for something a bit more adventurous. I’m really creative and I wanted something special and unique and I had this vision of being a desert bride”.
