25-year-old personal trainer Tracee said she has always wanted her special day to be ‘simple’. She told Yahoo7:

I really like the outdoors and I prefer to do something a little bit different to everyone else. I’m happy to wear a dress but I think I like being simple.”

The couple wore t-shirts personalised with ‘bride’ and ‘groom’ and their bridal party wore t-shirts labelled Best Man and Bridesmaid. Tracee found a celebrant who was ‘quite active’ and was happy to hike an hour and a half up the mountain for the ceremony.

The couple kept their wedding plans a secret from their family and friends and announced they had tied the knot by sharing a photo on Facebook. She said:

Everyone was pretty shocked, I guess, and then they just understood that’s the type of people we are – pretty spontaneous.”
