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!

 

STYLE CONCEPT

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!!

 

INSPIRATION

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!!!
