SHELLEY • A ONE DAY BRIDE
For Shelley and Tim their Mount Eliza wedding was all about friends, family, food and of course, some excellent music! With a clear idea of what they wanted Shelley and Tim executed the wedding planning process with ease all the while accompanied by a talented team of vendors. As for the dress, it was love at first sight for Shelley and our Lou wedding gown.
WEDDING DATE… 1.10.2015
WHEN AND HOW WE MET
It was back in the High School days, I was 16 and Tim was 18, we met through my brother. The wedding has been a long time coming.
OUR WEDDING LOCATION
We were married on a private property in Mount Eliza Victoria (family friends property) it was the perfect setting for the style of our wedding!
We wanted a relaxed, casual feel but still with a little bit of glamour. I had a clear idea of what I wanted the day to look like hired Dann Events and Tommy Collins to put it all together for us.
My vision came to life perfectly. The location was everything. We had an outdoor setting, all in white with white flowers to compliment the over all look. We also had the delicious Food stations by Tommy Collins with food from all corners of the world. Asian, Mexican and Pizza stations and I can’t forget to mention the Espresso Martini with Doughnuts!!
One Day Bridal!! I started following the girls on Instagram even before I got engaged, I love the One Day Bridal style and wanted to incorporate this into my wedding day. I love everything simple, elegant and with a touch of glam.
WHAT WAS YOUR NON NEGOTIABLE FOR THE DAY?
The best food and alcohol, something for everyone! And also the music!! We surprised our guests with a sax performance and he was amazing! He came down the staircase playing the song Jubel by Klingande!! And got the party started!!!
My best friend Jess organised the perfect day/weekend. We went on a Winery Tour in the Yarra Valley with close family and friends and then myself and five of my besties stayed the night at a beautiful bed and breakfast.

I only had the one bridesmaid (maid of honour) my best friend Jess, another easy part of the wedding process. I actually ordered the bridesmaid dress really early, I knew straight away when I saw it, simple, white, elegant.
I was very lucky to have my mother in-law who is a very talented florist do my …Simple again and only white flowers. I wanted white peonies, but not in season so we found a similar flower.
