REAL WEDDINGS – JANE AND ANDREW

The rain didn’t deter the happiness of Jane and Andrew when they exchanged their vows at their stunning modern home in Glenelg. Guests were invited to celebrate Jane’s 40th birthday and their housewarming and couldn’t believe their eyes when the marriage celebrant appeared out of nowhere to start the celebration!

Jane looked breathtaking in her designed creation by Wedding Dress Express, flowers were arranged by Lee at Wyld Orchids, marquee hire from Renniks and linen was provided by my good friends at Chaircovers Over All.

Congratulations Andrew and Jane – you were such a beautiful couple and Wedding & Event Management Services loved being a part of this very special occasion. xxx

REAL WEDDINGS – MELISSA AND VAUGHAN

Wedding & Event Management Services had the most amazing day coordinating on the day of Melissa and Vaughan’s wedding. Kingsbrook Estate, Currency Creek provided the stunning backdrop where the reception was held on a warm sunny day in March. Melissa looked breathtaking and I even got to hold this beautiful dress before she walked down the pathway with her Dad to meet a handsome looking Vaughan.

REAL WEDDINGS -ADAM & NIKKI

Happy New Year to everyone. We have much to be thankful for in 2010 and to celebrate, I am so excited to share with you some fabulous shots from Nikki and Adam’s wedding. Nikki wanted everything to be simple but classy and for everyone to have a great time. The bride and groom held their beautiful ceremony at Sherriffmuir gardens which was an absolute vision on the day – just like the bride! This wedding was all about family and friends coming together and having a great time in celebration of the beginning of their marriage. Here is just a small collation of Nikki and Adam’s wedding photos with more available at the Wedding & Event Management Services website gallery.

I was so chuffed to receive a lovely message of thanks from the bride and groom and wanted to share it with you. It is comments like this that make me love what I do!

“…Your professionalism and attention to detail made us feel totally relaxed that you would take care of everything leading up to and on our Wedding Day. Your friendly personality and fantastic rapport with people meant that you were able to liaise with suppliers to produce our exact Wedding Day vision. We received many comments from people saying how beautiful our reception looked. You went that extra mile to ensure our Wedding Day was everything we wanted and the end result was simply breathtaking……….”

It was such a pleasure sharing in your day Nikki and Adam. You guys are amazing and I wish you all the best and many years of wedded bliss.

TRADITIONALLY WHO PAYS FOR WHAT WHEN PLANNING A WEDDING??

A while ago I read this article about who pays for what at a wedding. This advice still does apply when you are planning a traditional wedding but remember there are so many variables – whether you have been living together for a long time and already have a family, if you have been married before, what religion you belong to and what the expectations are, your own financial situation and your parent’s and partner’s financial situations – the list is endless. So only use this as a guide and bear in mind that not everyone sticks to tradition.
