Ok, it's time to officially wrap up 2016! This is part 2 of my blog outlining some of our feature weddings from the past year. If you haven't read part 1 and would like to, you can find it below. Enjoy :)
Grace & Steve
It was our absolute pleasure to assist the lovely Grace and her groom Steve in planning their wedding day at the gorgeous Ecostudio Fellini in Mudgeeraba. They were married in an emotion filled outdoor ceremony. Grace looked stunning in her Made With Love gown and Steve and their young son also scrubbed up beautifully in their suits.
Immediately after the ceremony guests enjoyed canapes on the lawn, before moving inside for a three course sit down reception with entertainment from a solo saxophonist.
Grace and Steve had their wedding photos on the Ecostudio Fellini grounds, which was the perfect backdrop for their huge smiles. They returned in time to enjoy canapes and drinks with their guests and continued to party into the night. This wedding was a simple and elegant affair, painting the picture for this gorgeous bride and groom.
Kirrily & Tom
This couple were so engaged and enthusiastic about the big day, and we absolutely loved working with them. Kirrily in particular worked closely with us for over seven months as she had a magical vision of her dream wedding, and we helped her to transform it into a reality.
Kirrily & Tom chose the beautiful Forget Me Not for their wedding reception, and they also hosted their ceremony on the grounds. They wanted to create a relaxed and fun wedding with many friends and family travelling from interstate to attend, and those who travelled far were certainly not disappointed. They were treated to delicious food, an array of boutique beverages, entertaining speeches and a fabulous dance floor.
We arranged for guests to arrive at the venue by coach, who were then escorted to the lakeside ceremony location where Kirrily & Tom were married under the trees. Guests then enjoyed drinks on the lawn before making their way to the enormous Sperry Tent to enjoy an oyster bar and canapes as the sun set over the hills.
Gathered around long dining tables with white cloths and vine centrepieces, guests enjoyed a delicious feasting menu for dinner, before going on to – you guessed it – dance the night away.
