The fact that Blooming Love Events helped pull this couple’s dream wedding together in six months flat absolutely blows my mind. Because when you see these images, not to mention the beautiful thought woven into each and every detail, it can only be described as a labor of love. They brought on Katie Grant to photograph and she totally delivered.
From Blooming Love Events…When Fei & Hang came to us they were a complete blank canvas , all they knew was they needed to get married in 6-months time due to family reasons. Thanks to their wholehearted trust and cheerful nature, it was such a joy putting together this wedding full of gorgeous details, captured perfectly by Katie Grant Photography.
As half of their guests were coming from overseas, the couple wanted a place that carries a piece of Australian history and at the same time has spacious outdoor garden for the guests to enjoy. After some intensive venue scouting, the couple set their heart on Como House & Garden and Quat Quatta as ceremony and reception location respectively. Incorporating Fei’s favourite color blush and the subtle cream color of her dreamy Suzanne Harward gown, we opted a soft colour palette of blush, peach and cream, with accents of gold for a touch of luxe. The invitation created by Michaela McBride Calligraphy had a custom monogram and sketches of both venues, done on deckled edge paper in soft grey and bundled with blush silk ribbon.
The ceremony was held at the pine and cypress surrounded fountain terrace, with Como House, the grand Italianate style mansion as the perfect backdrop. After entering in a cream vintage Rolls Royce, Fei was walked up by her father through an aisle lined with lush roses, hydrangeas, delphiniums, and greenery. Fifty closest friends and families witnessed the couple exchanging their vows in front of the flower adorned fountain and showered the newlyweds with rose petals.
The guests then made their way to Quat Quatta to enjoy drinks and canapes in the green hedged courtyard. Neutral linen furniture, hanging festoon lights and a classy string quartet set a romantic and relaxed mood for the following banquet inside. Under the soaring ceiling, two long tables were covered in eggshell linens and twinkled with candle lights spread between gardenesque floral arrangements in different heights. Each place setting was graced with ornate plates, cut crystal glasses, gold flatware and a monogrammed menu tucked in hemstitch napkin. Although the couple chose not to have a bridal dance, three hours quickly went by with joyful toasts, laughter and heartfelt speeches.
