We want a relaxed vibe, but not without sophistication. It was just one big giant party.

ON THE DRESS

"I loved having two dresses that were very similar in theme, but one was definitely ‘bride serious’ and one was definitely ‘bride party’."

"Clementine Posy, were amazing. The arch they built was beyond anything i could have dreamed of and they even went to the effort of individually tailoring my bridesmaid’s bouquets to their dresses."

ON THE VENUE

"We wanted a place that could be transformed ourselves, that had enough space for all our guests and a beautiful backdrop. It was also a massive plus that the onsite houses fit our entire bridal party of 16!"

"Garnish Catering was beyond amazing.  Jo was so helpful and easygoing and nothing was too arduous and ridiculous for her; she was extremely accommodating. The food was also out of control—my guests are still talking about the pear and cumin lamb shoulder."

"Dan Cartwright was excellent. He was so easygoing and relaxed on the day, it just made for a really pleasant experience. He also had all our photos back to us within a week, which is unheard of and so, so appreciated."

WORD OF ADVICE

"Don’t sweat the small stuff. There will absolutely be something that will go wrong (like when Luke rang me at 8pm the night before to ask if i had his suit… which we then worked out was still hanging in our wardrobe, 3 hours away), but in the end, everything will work out."

FAVE DETAIL

"I think it would have to be our gold tinsel dance floor. It took a whole day to erect but in the end, it completely made the room. Everyone was dancing with the tinsel as it started to litter the floor throughout the night, and it reflected beautifully off the festoon lights."

FAVE MEMORY

"My little nephew (6) made a surprise speech during dinner. The whole room melted. For a child who shies away from the spotlight, this was really special to me."
