Aus­tralia - a Mel­bourne fo­cus on a con­ti­nent of op­tions

Wedding Destinations - - WEDDINGS ON LOCATION -

Erin and Will’s aim for their wed­ding day was to cre­ate a re­laxed, in­ti­mate and ca­sual event with only 70 of their clos­est fam­ily and friends. It didn’t take long for Will and Erin to choose The Heide Mu­seum of Mod­ern Art in Mel­bourne as the venue - be­cause they both love Aus­tralian art.

They de­cided to do a “first look” pho­totg­ra­phy shoot be­fore the cer­e­mony - and it was the per­fect way to see each other for the first time on their wed­ding day and have some pri­vate time to­gether.

The wed­ding took place in the gar­dens, un­der a her­itage listed oak tree, and the short and sim­ple civil cer­e­mony was con­ducted by an old friend of Erin’s. Erin and Will ar­ranged for a string quar­tet to play, and said how lovely it was to stay with all the guests af­ter the cer­e­mony en­joy­ing cham­pagne and re­lax­ing with ev­ery­one in­stead of beign obliged to dis­ap­pear for a wed­ding photo shoot.

The re­cep­tion was held on­site at the The Heide Mu­seum of Mod­ern Art, at Cafe Vue, which is part of Vue De Monde - Mel­bourne’s best restau­rant. Be­cause both Erin and Will are big foodies, hav­ing beau­ti­ful food and wine was a pri­or­ity.

The flo­ral ar­range­ment was cre­ated by Amy Wright from Wun­der­plant, and were an amaz­ing re­flec­tion of what Erin and Will wanted the day to be - sim­ple, artis­tic and in­ti­mate.

Will and Erin made most of the dec­o­ra­tions by hand or they got them through Esty, but all were per­sonal in some way. Will’s un­cle was the MC of the event, and Erin’s par­ents, Will’s mother, Will’s best man and Will all made speeches.

It was a fan­tas­tic night, with a dance floor un­der the stars and only their best friends in the room.
