They Said “I Do” at Australia’s Oldest Church and it was Breathtaking!

It’s hard to top an Eiffel Tower proposal, but these two sweeties managed to do just that with a wedding that was even MORE romantic than their ice skating engagement in the City of Light. Think a stunning ceremony in Australia’s oldest church followed by a sweet celebration at the beautiful bride’s grandparents’ farm, all designed by Decorative Events and Exhibitions and captured by Gabriela Ana Weddings.  See the breathtaking results in THE VAULT.

From Gabriela Ana Weddings… Lucy and Paul had the most beautiful early spring wedding getting married at Australia’s Oldest Church, Ebenezer Church, which Paul’s ancestors actually help built (amazing!).

The reception was held at Lucy’s grandparents acreage on their breathtaking property in Mt Wilson nestled within the Blue Mountains, Australia in a Marquee. Lucy had always wanted to have her wedding at her grandparents place ever since she was a little girl.

Lucy and Paul are both nurses and met while Lucy was on work placement on Paul’s ward. Lucy even yelled out “By the way, my name is Lucy!” after she met Paul while he walked away so he wouldn’t forget who she was! From there, their romance blossomed and then Paul proposed on their overseas holiday to Europe on Christmas Eve while ice skating in front of the Eiffel tower. Because the ice was so cold Paul didn’t want to bend down on one knee until Lucy made him do it again on one knee to make it official. (I think I would have done the same haha!)

A Traditional Garden Wedding Gets a Glam + Whimsical Update

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 BrideOur 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.

From The Bride…My husband and I met on a blind date at Bon Sai Restaurant through mutual friends. I realized he was the one when he let me finish his sesame flavored ice cream. My husband knew I was the one when I lent him my jacket (he was wearing a short sleeve shirt to show off his muscles on a very cold night). We survived our rather awkward and ultra-shy first meeting and now we are husband and wife!

Like other couples both of us were really stressed out during the preparation. Both of us never really had a dream or idea of what sort of wedding we wanted which made it even more difficult.

However, our friends, family, pastor Rae and fantastic vendors really helped us through the journey and the wedding day was perfect. Just as we planned and imagined.

One of the really coolest and amazing thing that happened during the photo-shoot was when we coincidentally met with Yang’s colleague’s dad and his two extremely cute puppies. He allowed us to take photos with the cutest Pomeranians. They were so photogenic! This all happened on the busy Saturday evening on King street. Diane and Amber had to quickly shoot the photos in between the busy incoming traffic. It was really crazy!

Also, on the wedding day everyone was emotional and happy but my father was especially happy and sad at the same time knowing that her baby girl is all grown up and married now. I am so grateful that all those beautiful moments were captured during the day and we can cherish the memories.

The reception at Acqua Viva was absolutely fantastic. The food was sensational. Umberto and his team made us feel very special and welcomed. Everything was perfect nothing to fault.

Our photographer DeRay and Simcoe absolutely exceeded our expectations. The special moments of our day were captured beautifully. Although some of our family members were not able to speak English, Amber and Diane were really helpful and made them feel very comfortable. We really want to thank Amber and Diane for not only to take natural and gorgeous photos but also making the day run smoothly.

We truly feel blessed and grateful for all the people who made it possible. Special thanks to all our friends, bridal party, Reverend Ray, DeRay and Simcoe photographers, Senson Studio Videographer, De La Rosa cakes & cupcakes, Elsie Tan Makeup Artist, Anastasia hair & makeup artist, Suzanne Siew makeup artist, Theressa’s Designs Bridal and Tuscany Bridal.

From DeRay & SimcoeHeeji and Yang were just total dream clients for us. Heeji’s parents are from Korea and Yang’s family are from China, such a delightful mix. We loved every minute of this stylish yet humble wedding.

We especially enjoyed how Heeji and Yang incorporated Yang’s much younger siblings into the wedding. Yang’s teenage brother Jack gave one of the most amazing best man speeches we have ever heard, even making his big brother cry. And Heeji’s dad cried at least 4 times seeing his beautiful daughter!

A gorgeous wedding with beautiful people inside and out.
