It’s Spring and what a wonderful way to incorporate flowers into a creative wedding hairstyle!
A simple country wedding was the theme of Tina and Julian’s wedding. This dream couple who were both teachers wanted to incorporate their worldly travels, their Italian heritage and their careers into their wedding. These amazing photos by Sonya Francis Photography. Wedding & Event Management Services would like to give a big shout out to Blue Lake Hire for the marquee, Chaircovers Over All, Margie at Budz and my wonderful hardworking team of girls – Alison, Pauline and Brittany. Love you guys xx
How about this gorgeous country rustic table setting for your upcoming wedding or party? I’m loving how gypsophila has made a return to wedding decor…
Kirsti & Aaron’s wedding was held at the beautiful Kalangadoo Estate Homestead which was once owned by Kirsti’s Mum’s Scottish ancestors when they first came out to Australia. It has been since sold and passed through owner to owner until coming back into their loving care. The gardens were breathtaking and provided a fantastic back drop for the marquee.
Kirsti and Aaron both lived in Melbourne and wanted a French blue theme throughout. Matching this theme Kirsti ordered material from France to cover her tables. Candles were set up throughout the picturesque gardens which provided a romantic glow into the evening. Dispensers of punch quenched the guests thirst on this very hot January day.
What astounded the guests was the gigantic four tier wedding cake made by local, Helen Strachan which boasted fresh hydrangeas and sat atop a family heirloom – an antique silver cake stand and our creative idea of a table seating plan etched onto a magnificent mirror steered guests in the right direction.
My dream team consisted of Blue Lake Hire for the marquee, Renniks Hire and Atlas Hire for the chivari chairs and champagne stands, Margie from Budz for the beautiful blue hydrangeas. My own hard working team of Cheryl, Carmen, Brittany and Alison were of course, amazing as always. Thank you for helping create the magic!
A romantic proposal in France set the scene for this recent French inspired vintage garden wedding held in the lovely surrounds of Katnook Estate winery in Coonawarra. Naomi was the most amazing bride to work with and had such a great vision of how she wanted her dream wedding to look
– from the miniature framed chalkboards written with French numbers ‘une – quatre’ placed on the guest tables, to the vintage bottles, jars and vases saved over time showcasing beautiful David Austin roses,
to the eco friendly succulent bombonieres “pour votre jardin”.
Not forgetting the sweet tooth – a candy buffet was on offer
and vintage display tables boasting not only an old Valentine typewriter which entertained guests when they had to type messages for the bride and groom but a memory tree showcasing old family photos and would you believe – bus tickets from a bygone era!
This was one of the most stunning and spectacular weddings that Wedding & Event Management Services has had the pleasure to work on and we were was thrilled to be a part of Naomi and James’ special day.
