A tiny secret wedding on a forest mountaintop in Tasmania

We got overwhelmed when we started looking at wedding planning a few weeks after we got engaged. Actually, we got overwhelmed just starting to plan our engagement party. We couldn't really agree on the number of people to invite, the theme, the location, or anything else. We're both from different parts of Australia and neither of us wanted to get married in the other one's hometown, so we decided to make it simple and run away to the most beautiful part of Australia. Tasmania. and get married in secret on a mountaintop, with only our parents and siblings as witnesses.
