From Kim Power“Elegant Hippy” is how Paige described her wedding theme – there were vibes of rural, modern, boho, classic, beauty, romance, zen and glamour. The location was Tanonga Luxury Eco-Lodges in Charlton Gully, a private but blossoming outback venue.

Paige was dressed by Pallas Couture – a very modern romantic silhouette. She had 6 bridesmaids – 3 of which were Mum’s to be and dressed in gorgeous off the shoulder gowns. Her flowers were made up of white grandiflora cluster roses, carnations and tulips. A reflection of her husband to be’s heritage.

Their ceremony was personal, emotional and inspiring. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house! The locations surrounding the lodge’s provided picturesque landscapes for both I and the photographer Jade to take advantage of. Their reception was held at the Port Lincoln Hotel and it was transformed into a golden glitz, garden-like ballroom. There were many laughs and tears throughout the night, Paige & Jake’s family speeches were memorable and heartfelt. Everyone joined them on the dance floor after their bridal waltz, their DJ kept everyone partying for the rest of the night!

Quick Tip: The Faux Glow, Perfected

QuickTip_swash

Even if you consider yourself to be a self-tanning aficionado, doing a trial run at least a week in advance of your Big Day is an absolute must. Before the main event, make sure your entire body has been thoroughly exfoliated, and that any necessary hair removal has taken place at least 12 hours prior, before applying self-tanner, and you’re practically guaranteed a gorgeous, even glow!

From Nicholas Purcell Studio106 degrees doesn’t generally bode well for an outdoor wedding but Paloma & Deke bought 200 bottles of sparkling water for their guests. They also stuck “D&P” stickers onto each bottle. Little surprises like this were a hallmark of Paloma and Deke’s wonderful day.

Paloma’s Spanish family are a big part of her life. Paloma’s sister make the wonderful cake and bomboniere. Her father, a renowned surgeon, surprised toasted the couple by drinking from a traditional Spanish bota bag.

The surprise of the day was when Paloma and Deke first dance. It was a wonderful, choreographed dance that they had worked for months with a dance instructor to perfect.

From The Bride… Our story is the age old tale of high school sweethearts. Sam and I met in a high school musical and he swept me off my feet with his jokes and laughter. Six years later we were engaged (all our friends saw it coming) and by the seventh it was wedding time. Growing up in the Adelaide Hills, naturally it was where we wanted to be married – close to home in a place that was important to us. Choosing a ceremony location was simple as the church we attend has a beautiful old traditional chapel, and it is attached to the primary school I went to! Our idea for the wedding was always traditional – but we didn’t want it to feel too black & white. We went with a simple and classic style, with the addition of things like colorful flowers to contrast with the simplicity of the ivory dresses and I let the girls choose their own shoes. For the men, they wore handmade brown shoes from Ethiopia and self-tied bow ties. Although we had an idea of what we wanted it to look like, we were never fussy and just let things happen.

Because we were still students, we needed to be a little thrifty in some areas and we knew if we were going to pay money we wanted to let people we knew share their skills with us. We made sure to use resources like free printables from the internet (table numbers were easy this way) and Grandma who was willing to make some jam for the bonbonnieres. Our florist was my best friend who was learning floristry, and it was the perfect opportunity to show off her skills. We went to the flower market together to choose the flowers (so much fun!) and then she arranged all of the bouquets and buttonholes. Our cake was made by another friend’s mum who has a high tea business. For the ceremony we had a string quartet that was organized by a friend of ours, and another school friend’s husband played in the jazz band for the reception. We had a photo booth at the reception for guests to take picture in front of, and it was painted by two of my bridesmaids who are fantastic artists.

Whimsical

From The Bride… Daniel and I had been planning this day for over a year. The hallway in our house is long and blank and was the perfect place to hang three big sheets of butcher’s paper, displaying our budget. There was no hiding, it was always in our face, reminding us of what we wanted our day to be.

We wanted our guests know what Daniel and I are all about. Which is a relaxed vibe, great food, a love of indie/ folk music, the family we cherish and the friends we love.

To help keep cost low I designed our invitations and other stationery, which has led me to start my own business. Also my mum and I DIY a lot of the decorations, such as the table runner, drink dispensers and chalkboard arrow signs.

Daniel and I were so lucky to have such amazing floral arrangements, which, by the way, are all artificial. My mum owns her own business specialising in making artificial flowers look fresh. I would never have been able to have some of the flowers I desired for my bouquet if I had chosen fresh.

We had met some really cool people along the planning journey. One being our photographer, Bree, from Life In Still Photography. She is amazing, such a wealth of knowledge. Just before our wedding, Bree became unwell and was unable to shoot our day. However she organised for her very experienced assistant to photograph our wedding instead. This was one of those situations that could have been scary, but we trusted Bree and her team delivered. We have beautiful images to show our friends, family and one day, our children.
