Real Wedding – Peony Perfection

After a lot of searching for a unique reception venue, today’s couple Danielle and James decided to hold their traditional Jewish ceremony in Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens followed by celebrations at a luxury car show room. “With its modern and open feel, it was perfect,” said Danielle. Masses of pink peonies in small jam jars, wooden boxes of herbs and bees wax candles lined the centre of the tables. “As we are both lovers of great food The Big Group was the only company we wanted to have cater for us,” said Danielle. An incredible menu of modern kosher food was created, with the presentation of the food itself being incorporated as part of the décor. Fresh salads were nestled amongst the flowers and the candles whilst each table also had its own cake.

Real Wedding – Garden Divine

Having met as 16 year olds, Sarah and Duncan celebrated their wedding day with an elegant garden party in a marquee on the croquet lawn of Como Historic House. The couple chose to leave the natural lawn as the floor for the white and soft green marquee in order to reflect the garden theme, with vases of fresh blooms creating a natural flow-on effect from the outdoors. “We had four long tables all named after our favourite flowers, and we mixed everybody up so that our families and parents’ friends were intermingled,” Sarah said. “Weddings are a good way to meet lots of great new people – and our wedding was one of the best days of our lives.”

Real Wedding – Green Magic

Todays featured couple, Monique and Luke, described the months spent planning their wedding as both challenging and exciting. “Both of us are quite strong-willed, and Luke asked to be involved in things like the table centrepieces and the invitation font that perhaps males don’t traditionally care about!” Monique said. But the groom’s input – and persistence – paid off, as everything was perfect when the big day arrived.
With a colour palette of fresh green, pale apricot and ivory, the bridesmaids wore apple green dresses and carried stunning bouquets of apricot pink David Austin roses, while the flower girls carried pretty green Bells of Ireland floral pomanders. Following the bright colour theme, the reception tables were decorated with massed roses in glass vases, candelabra draped with vine and birch branches adorned with flickering glass tea light baubles.

Real Wedding – French Kitchen Inspiration

Today on the blog, we are sharing a wedding with you described by the couple as a true celebration of their family and friends, their future life together and their passion for good food, wine and music.
“All along, we wanted to make sure that everything we did represented who we are as a couple and what we love,’ bride Maria said of her wedding to partner David.
After exchanging vows on a Coolangatta hilltop, their private property reception was inspired by the beautiful country wineries of France with plenty of gourmet touches, from herb-themed table centrepieces to Argentinean canapés and sweets reflecting Maria’s heritage. And in true foodie style, the wedding cake was an incredible six-tier cheese wheel cake!

Real Wedding – Neutral Chic

Wearing a strapless Steven Khalil gown of soft folded tulle which spread into a skirt of layered tulle and French lace, today’s featured bride Kate married partner Tony in a romantic ceremony. Afterwards they celebrated with family and friends at Newmarket Stables, Randwick, where a single long table was decorated with brass candelabras, tealights and masses of white, cream and ivory flowers including roses, hydrangea and jasmine. A significant detail was literally the icing on the cake, by Sweet Art, which matched the soft layers of tulle and lace in Kate’s beautiful gown.

Real Wedding – Feathered Touch

Today we have a gorgeous wedding to share with you, set amongst the surrounds of the beautiful Convent in Daylesford, Victoria. Virginia and Maurice were married in a country garden ceremony inspired by nature and love. Birds and feathers added a delicate and romantic touch to the couple’s day, with feathers included with the guests’ invitations, the bouquets, the buttonholes and at each table setting on guests’ name cards. Table centrepieces featured whimsical birdhouses set amongst a ‘nest’ of soft tea light candles and white flowers matching Virginia’s bouquet and the floral cuffs worn by her mother and Maurice’s mother. The couple’s romantic cake was also decorated with nesting birds, roses and feathers, complementing the couple’s delicate bird feather theming.
