Classic 1920′s Inspired Australian Wedding at the Simmer On The Bay

There is a lot to love about this sweet soiree captured by Tealily Photography. And I mean A LOT. Beautifully decorated with flowers from Plumbago and furniture by Decorative Events And Exhibitions and ‘LOVE’ lights by EventHaus, this 1920′s inspired fête is inspiration overload in the best possible way, and you can get inspired right here.

Event Venue

From Tealily PhotographyChloe and Nathan had an amazing wedding and despite the summer heat, they had a day to remember surrounded by their families and closest friends. They chose vendors that helped them create a classic wedding with a twist of the 1920′s – a pastel palette with splashes of gold. To top off the fun, Chloe and Nathan had a photo booth set up with a custom golden backdrop.

Simple + Sweet New South Wales Wedding

Laid back elegance is totally this couple’s thing.  Well, that and throwing one seriously pretty + fun party. Because this, my friends, is a day that is the epitome of all things casual elegance with a big ol’ side of awesome thrown in for good measure.  I’m talking perfectly imperfect florals from Peking Spring, a sweet Poachers Pantry setting and some gorgeous images from Tea Lily Photography.  See them here.

From the Bride… It was important for us to start married life the way we wanted to live it; walking in sunshine, surrounded by friends and family and living off local produce. So we took inspiration from our goals in life to shape our summer wedding, choosing a venue with its own vineyard and smokehouse, and rustic charm.

Like our relationship, everything about our wedding fell easily into place… even when things didn’t go to plan, it just felt right! We wanted everything to feel natural and sincere, so it was important to us to have a flexible schedule, and no wedding rehearsal (which may have shown when I accidentally kissed my now hubby ‘hello’ BEFORE saying our vows!).

Our photographer Joel was so unobtrusive during our wedding that we almost forgot he was there. Every moment he was photographing us was the perfect opportunity to slip into each other’s arms and enjoy the romance of it all. This made for a relaxing wedding day as well as some genuine, private moments in the photos Joel captured.

Intimate Beach Wedding

My happy place?  A wedding chock-full of beautiful details and a laid-back elegance that simply screams pretty.  But when you add in a toes-in-the-sand ceremony on a drizzly + oh-so-romantic beach, a bride and groom who simply can’t stop smiling and a world of lovely captured expertly by Daniele Del Castillo, it’s an entirely new level of glee.  Get your smile on right here in the full gallery.


From the Bride… We got married on April 12, 2014 on the sands of Pearl Beach, NSW followed by dinner reception at the restaurant Pearls on the Beach which is located right on the beach. We were a little worried about the weather, so we had a wet weather backup booked, which was the local community hall down the road from the beach. It did rain on the day, but luckily it held out during the ceremony so we were about to get married on the beach as planned.

We used to take day trips around the Central Coast, which is where Sam spent much of his childhood. Pearl Beach was one of my favourite places we visited. It’s so unique and secluded and has the most beautiful and quiet beach. A very romantic and magical place untouched by tourists. 

We had a very small wedding of 45 people with our families and closest friends, which was great because we really got to spend quality time with all of our guests which was important to us.  Everything was planned in under three months and we had lots of help on the day from our friends and family. Everything was done the way we wanted it to be and was full of love on the day.

I made the aisle runner myself by purchasing a long piece of hessian fabric and scattering shells along the edge. I also found these great starfish placecards online, which was a fun project to assemble. We had drinks in between the ceremony and reception at the local community hall and our friends helped decorate this venue and set up a lolly bar.
