Exchange nuptials in the calm and graceful arena of an English Country Garden - THE wedding style for sophisticated, elegant and relaxed brides. Ensure your guests show up on time in their Sunday best and enjoy the ambiance of the fresh air and vibrant blooms of a garden wedding accented with dreamy pastel changes and vintage heirlooms.
Think 'tea party' when styling this gorgeous wedding theme. Dainty lace, soft colours and a classy, comfortable atmosphere. Treat guests to a post-ceremony high-tea beneath the leaves in the garden, with scones, champagne, tea and other scrumptious delights. If the weather is particularly warm, consider providing guests with cute little parasols and mis-matched fans to stay shaded and cool.

When it comes to gorgeous, feminine, dreamy weddings - this one takes the cake! Featuring a STUNNING bride, attention to the smallest of details and a charming colour palette, you're going to love this Adelaide real wedding! A spontaneous trip to Thailand for her birthday was only the beginning of the surprises Gian had in store for Natalie. On the last night of their romantic getaway, the couple walked along the beach after a beautiful dinner. When they arrived back at their resort, Natalie opened the door to find their room covered with red roses and candles. She was speechless as Gian bent down on one knee and asked her to marry him. What had began as a friendship was now a lifelong commitment…
Natalie and Gian love all the décor associated with vintage glamour and used soft colours, such as white, cream and soft pink, to make their theme come alive. They decorated their ceremony with a white aisle runner lined with tall silver stands that had arrangements of beautiful flowers from Flowers By Rita on top and a candle in the centre. They also had two stunning large flower arrangements in vintage white urns at the front of the church and hired white 1950’s Mark V Jaguars from Jaguars With Grace.
Natalie chose to her exquisite gown made, as she wanted it to be glamorous and exclusive. She describes her experience; “From the moment we met the designer listened to everything I was looking for and spent hours designing a gown that was everything I could have dreamed of. The final gown had a sweetheart neckline with a tight fitting bodice, which featured beautiful embellished lace and hand beaded crystals. The bottom of the dress was made up of over one hundred metres of silk organza, which was soft and flowing.” Gian’s groomsmen looked handsome and formal in suits from Ignition For Men.
Natalie and her bridesmaids held beautiful David Austin roses and peony bouquets by Flowers By Rita. The centrepieces at the reception were elegant silver candlesticks with large flowing arrangements on top, also from Flowers By Rita, surrounded by candles to give a beautiful romantic feel to the evening. Rita also wired flowers along the balcony at the reception centre, which looked stunning. Natalie and Gian hired beautiful French antique styled furniture from LB Events and created relaxing lounge areas for their guests to sit and mingle on away from their tables. LB Events also created lovely soft pink lighting throughout the reception to give the room a warm and dreamy feeling.
The couple chose Darren from Impressions Photography Studio to capture their big day. “We wanted photos that were natural and not too staged. We chose Darren because of his great reputation in the industry and we were so happy he was available to shoot our day. He captured all of the beautiful details and was great at coordinating everything so the day ran smoothly”, said Natalie. They were equally impressed with their fantastic videographers I Do Cinema; “Our videographers did a fantastic job and we loved the ‘Same Day Edit’ video, which was played at the reception showing all of the highlights throughout the day. It was so special being able to look back on the day only hours later.
