This so­phis­ti­cated and heart­felt cel­e­bra­tion was filled with lots of love and happy tears

Cosmopolitan Bride (Australia) - - IN THIS ISSUE -

The forecast for their wed­ding may have been thun­der­storms, but in the end this happy cou­ple had noth­ing but sun­shine on their spe­cial day! And, turn­ing tra­di­tion on its head, rather than the grooms walk­ing up the aisle, they were wait­ing at the top of it as their guests ar­rived in­stead. There may have been clear skies, but dry eyes? Not so much! The heart­felt cer­e­mony left many of the guests (the grooms’ dads, es­pe­cially) emo­tional and wip­ing away happy tears. Then it was on to photos, fol­lowed by cock­tails and canapés un­der the stars with their near­est and dear­est. What a day!

DATE Jan­uary 29, 2016.

PHO­TOG­RA­PHER Frank at Same Love Photography (samelove.com.au). “Frank is both an amaz­ing pho­tog­ra­pher and a gem of a per­son­al­ity.”

SUITS & AC­CES­SORIES Cal­i­bre at David Jones (david­jones.com.au). “Our suits and all our ac­ces­sories (belts, shoes, pocket squares, ties) were from Cal­i­bre. We went to look at suits and walked out hav­ing bought our whole out­fits!”

STYLIST & FLOW­ERS Kandy Russo at What Will I Wear (whatwilli­wear.com. au). “Kandy ar­ranged our flow­ers for the cer­e­mony and also styled the re­cep­tion area and food ser­vice area for us.”

STATIONERY “We de­signed and printed our own stationery us­ing the same shade of blue to tie in with our suits.”

CER­E­MONY, RE­CEP­TION & CATER­ING This­tle Hill, Pokol­bin, NSW (thill.com. au). “We chose the place be­cause of the stun­ning grounds and nat­u­ral set­ting. The own­ers, Donna and Stu­art, also did the cater­ing them­selves. We held a sec­ond re­cep­tion at Muse Res­tau­rant at Hunger­ford Hill Win­ery the next day.”

CAKE Muse Res­tau­rant (muse­din­ing. com.au). “It was a cro­quem­bouche with pis­ta­chio crème patis­serie. We wanted some­thing grand and mem­o­rable – plus we love pis­ta­chio, so it was a no-brainer!”

ENTERTAINMENT Ja­son Bone (gen­r8ent. com.au/artists/ja­son-bone). “He did a great job of in­ter­act­ing with the group! We didn’t have a ‘first dance’, but we did dance to Vo­lare by Dean Martin.”

GUESTS 11.

“Our flow­ers were white roses and oak leaves.” “Be­fore our guests ar­rived, we had break­fast to­gether.”

“We loved watch­ing fam­ily and friends walk down the aisle to­wards us.”

“Our guests were able to stay with us and en­joy them­selves over the three days.”
