From the Bride.. Bill proposed in the car driving from Hobart to Launceston to see Elton John in concert. There had been a mix up with the ring pick up date so he was obviously frazzled! We ended up having a great night away!

Our wedding theme was English cottage garden. I have spent alot of time in England with my family and love all the beautiful patterns and colours you see in the gardens. Our favorite moment was watching all our wonderful family and friends dance inside the beautifully lit teepee, it looked incredible! I spent a year collecting cone china dinner and side plates plus other pretty crystal/ glass dishes from antique/collectable stores around Tasmania, it was fun. The dress was not what I thought I would go for but when I tried it on I knew straight away. My earrings were made by my parents’ good friend Gillian and suited the look of the day beautifully. I love re-wearing them.

Romantic Garden Wedding at the James Terrara House

This entire wedding – from beginning to end – is gorgeous. But I could not tear myself away from the crazy bananas gorgeousness of the floral table and the reception space. So forgive the sheer volume of photos devoted to flowers and make sure to spend some time poring over all of the other details that At Dusk Photography captured so beautifully.

From the bride…James and I first met when we were 12 years old at a local tennis camp. At the end of the week James asked for my phone number, which I wrote on a Cornetto wrapper. For years I wondered why he never called me and I later found out it was because his mother, Ann, had thought the ice cream wrapper was rubbish and had thrown it away! We bumped into each other at a friends’ 16th birthday and instantly recognized each other. A little while after that we started dating and have been together ever since!

I wanted the our bridesmaids to feel unique and like themselves so we all went to Bridesmaids only together and they chose the style and color of dress that made them feel the most beautiful. I wanted subtle tones to blend in with the green grass and country feel.

It was pouring with rain for the majority of the day, especially while we were getting ready. We weren’t fazed though, we quite like rain! It stopped in time for the ceremony, which we had moved to an undercover location at the entrance to the house just in case. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise as the wet weather option was more beautiful than we could have imagined! The rain stopped for the photographs around the property and started again when we were safe and sound under cover for the reception. Perfect!

My sister got her wedding gown from Karen Willis Holmes and it was just perfect! I always knew I’d look for my dress there as they have such a variety of dresses. I had seen Karen Willis Holmes gowns in countless magazines and actually cut out the gown that I ended up choosing when I first got engaged and stuck it in my inspiration book without realizing it was the same one! My accessories were James’ late Nanna’s antique watch, my late Nan’s eternity ring, my mother’s diamond earrings, a Karen Willis Holmes veil and my mother’s veil was used to tie around each of our veils.

The music was a jazz band called The Escalators. They were recommended to us by Terrara House. The band played Jazz and covers and created an excellent vibe – everyone was up and dancing all night.

Our photographer, Chris Prestige from At Dusk Photography was a relaxed and easy going photographer, who made us feel really comfortable.

Peony Filled Wedding in Perth

Show me a coral peony and I’m done. It’s the prettiest flower there is. Everyone knows that right? Okay, I guess its up for debate but for me, it’s the Kate Middleton, the Ryan Gossling, coolest girl ever of flowers and if you’re with me, you’re going to love this wedding. With photos by Angga Permana and a peony around every corner, this gallery is definitely one for the books.

From the bride…We only had three months to prep our wedding. We expected nothing and had prepared ourselves for the worst. The only thing we were sure of was that we wanted to be married and that was all that matters.

The most unforgettable moment on the day was when our Kombi wedding car broke down in the middle of the highway and all the bridesmaids and I arrived at the ceremony venue 45 minutes late. Surprisingly the whole scene did not break me at all. I was calm throughout and I knew deep in my heart that I will marry Patrick on this fine day and this was just a small bump on the road.

I walked down the aisle to Jack Johnson’s – Angel and I could still remember very dearly all the feelings I had when I walked my way to Patrick. Everyone and everything else was blurry. Patrick’s eyes and smiles were the only things I held on to. It was all very personal and emotional for me.

We couldn’t have picked a better reception venue than Little Creatures Brewery as both of us are big fans of their beers. We also love the rustic romantic feeling that the place offers and for Patrick it was a definite long yes as soon as we were shown the way to the open tap bar.

Thanks to Tali from Twigged flowers by Tali and Sarah from Heart Strings and Pretty Things who worked beyond their ways to create every single details that I had in mind into a such dreamy day. From my flower crown to each and every table centerpieces to the hanging jars, combined with our DIY items, all these details were put together with love. Every corner I looked somehow spoke of our true personalities.

A little tip for all the bride-to-be: during prep period just try and do your best, keep the positive vibe running all the time, be grateful on every small achievement, and remain patient on every trials, in the end, you are marrying the love of your life and that’s what it should only be about.
