This gorgeous bride had a vision: a traditional garden wedding with a whimsical twist. With chiavari chairs, David Austin roses and silver candelabras, the traditional elements began to take shape. Lush amaranthus and ivy, a naked cake and tulle bridesmaids' dresses completed the vision. Head to The Vault to see it all from Evoke Photography!

From The Bride...Our traditional wedding was located at Peppers Craigieburn Resort, a historical estate property surrounded by lavish manicured gardens, golf coarse and vintage horse stables. The ceremony was held in the garden surrounded by wild flowers, roses and a lush tree under which we took our vows. I (the bride) made a breathtaking entrance at the ceremony, down the steps of the old house and into the garden. The reception was held in the Carrington function room, with grand French windows behind the bridal table, adorned with twinkle lights to create a fairytale atmosphere.

The entire day was perfection from start to finish, there was on-location accommodation for all of our bridal party and guests, which gave us the opportunity to spend a number of days relaxing with our family and friends and admiring and exploring the peaceful countryside surroundings.

My vision for our wedding was a balance between traditional elements such as the tiffany chairs, David Austin roses, silver candelabra centerpieces and mirrored accents, and more whimsical features such as draped Ivy and Amaranthus, a naked style cake with a hand crafted wired topper, tulle bridesmaid dresses and a detailed lace wedding gown.

Overall we were happy with every aspect of our wedding and all our guests commented on how smoothly the day ran. Reflecting back, navy bridesmaid dresses and soft, pastel colours of the bouquets were the perfect choice as they matched the venue flawlessly making for some beautiful photography.
