Classic with a perfect modern twist, this Gallery On Waymouth wedding captured by Evan Bailey is like taking a peak into this gorgeous couples’ personality. And from the looks of this gallery, I think we could be besties. It was a day full of meaningful details and topped off with a delicious cake made of cheese (see? we’d best friends), and there is even more waiting for you in the VAULT.
From The Bride…When planning our wedding day, we envisioned something that was modern, simple and a great party with family and friends.
With a church ceremony at Sacred Heart College Senior where we first met followed by a reception at an art gallery in the heart of the Adelaide CBD, it allowed us to be creative and place our own special stamp on the big day. Black and white with bold splashes of colour helped us capture that vision and make our wedding classic with a modern twist.
The boys looked great in their black suits from Peter Jackson and the ladies pulled off a mix of white fitted cocktail dresses from Fashion Bunker. This was the perfect pairing with bright pink, dark burgundy flowers that were free structured and modern.
The team at Karen Willis Holmes on High Street Armadale delivered a beautifully detailed strapless sequin covered gown with an accompanying belt.
Our reception was simple as the room at Gallery on Waymouth spoke for itself. The exposed white stone walls against the hardwood floors and vibrant artwork was a beautiful setting for a cocktail reception. We had grouped floral arrangements on the sit down and cocktail tables with the flower wall as our feature. Illume Flowers created a stunning 2m x 2m wall of greenery and dark burgundy flowers to be our backdrop for the wedding cake and dessert table. This was by far the favourite detail to our wedding.
Being obsessed with cheese, we had a cake of exquisite cheeses from Udder Delights in Hahndorf who layered vintage cheddar, creamy brie and a French blue. To accompany the savoury cake, we had an assortment of individual tarts from Swedish tarts based at Henley Beach. DIY was at the forefront of our minds, so much of decorations were done ourselves. We made our own signage for the reception, gift tags for our wedding favours and cards for special comments and well wishes to the newly married couple.
As a parting gift, we offered Yalumba Y-Series piccolo wine bottles to guests as our wedding favour. I once dreamed of having a winery wedding, so this was my little way of bringing the winery to me. Our wedding truly was one large party… Saying ‘I do’ at the alter to hitting the dance floor with our friends made for every special moment to when we became Mr and Mrs Juniper.
As for advice…Be as organized as possible leading up to the wedding. It will allow you to relax that little bit more and enjoy your day! No regrets!
