Overall Impression – Love on the Lawn is a great show to attend if you want the best of both in and outdoor experiences (provided that the weather holds out, which luckily it did in this day!). Love on the Lawn was nicely spread out on the lawn, with a fair bit to see and do.
Live music kept the crowds happy, while the food trucks, carts and caravans were a great fit for the day. There were teepees set up for brides to rest under and enjoy a spot of lunch.
Also set up under a large tepee-looking tent was the show’s fashion parade, presented by Gina from The Housewives of Melbourne. The celebrity showcase was a great addition for brides who follow the television show religiously.
