This fun-loving couple got engaged on their fifth anniversary before ‘Make You Feel My Love’ by Adele set the scene for Maddie’s walk down the aisle at their elegant winery wedding. Serving wood fired pizza and lawn games during cocktail hour before dinner in a rustic sandstone barn, their beautiful celebration was accented with bursts of bright pink and burgundy blooms. And the finishing touch? Gifting guests M&Ms as a cheeky nod to their names!
The Planning Experience
“It was challenging but exciting! As I had to plan from another state I was very reliant on my computer. My suppliers were exceptional at keeping in contact, organising meetings when we were in town and just making me feel like everything was under control even though I wasn’t there to organise things all the time.”
The Dress Search
“My wedding dress search was really fun – I went with my Mum, sister and best friend to about five stores and I was able to find my dress on that first day of shopping! I knew I’d found ‘The One’ because every time the shop assistant would ask me what dress I was leaning towards, I would keep going back to the first one I tried on there.”
“We wanted lots of florals and I loved the sandstone and timber elements that were already part of the venue, which were really highlighted in all the styling touches. I was so excited by the styling, I took a moment before the ceremony to really take in the reception – it blew all expectations!”
“Planning will be stressful but it’s worth it! It will be the best day no matter what you plan. Take a minute on the day, just the two of you – my husband and I did this at our reception and it was a really special moment.”
