In the front yard where the ceremony was to be held, the flowers were plentiful, and vintage pieces of furniture sat amongst the grass. The styling drew you in, inviting you to wonder past all the elements, making you feel incredibly welcome. There was nothing pretentious, just an honest setting where two people in love were going to share an ‘I do’.
The backyard hosted the reception, where a large marquee lined with colourful ribbon gave a circus tent feel, and equally colourful masses of flowers informally placed in glass vases filled the tent with a gorgeous energy.
There were old lounge chairs for relaxing, a dance floor for boogying to records and a claw foot bath filled with ice and beer!
The tables were filled with colourful treats, plus there was a dessert bar to be marvelled.
“We chose to get married in my parents garden as we wanted our wedding day to be fun and relaxed with a minimum of formality and fuss.” says Vicki
And who could forget the fun photo booth decorated with hanging wire lamp shades awaiting to host a giggle or two!
From the bride: The thing we loved most was being able to involve our family and friends in every aspect of our wedding day.
Angus’s cousin Mike was our DJ/MC, his wife Cath performed the marriage ceremony, and Angus’ Mum made the cupcakes for our dessert table. May, who tailor-made Angus’ vest was my music teacher when I was in primary school. We also had friends involved in make-up, styling and photography. It was the little details like these that made our day all the more special.
