Real Wedding: Anna & Mark

The floods were big this year & it made for a very interesting start to the wedding season...

Anna & Mark's wedding was set for early September in Canowindra. As the Belubula River rose higher and higher the week before their wedding, plan B went into action for their ceremony & reception locations.

Plan B involved hosting the ceremony at the local church, followed by the reception at Canowindra Showground. Both venues were high & dry away from the surging river!

It was a wet week, and it was all systems go with suppliers having trouble getting into Canowindra because of closed roads - but Anna & Mark were amazingly cool, calm and collected under the pressure and I didn't see the smile leave Anna's face all day. 

We went into overdrive to create a beautiful cocktail setting & a day to remember for Anna & Mark. Working with a soft pink & burgundy palette with pops of gold, we played with seasonal blooms and mixed seating options. The farm where they were supposed to be married had spectacular trees in blossom, so we brought the blossoms in, and used lots of warm festoon light to create a cosy setting. 

Plus we had loads of fun creating a kick ass bouquet for Anna - we figured she deserved it after all the stress!

Cheers to Anna & Mark for being absolute troopers in the face of mother nature & all the challenges she threw their way xo

Real Wedding: Miranda & Stephen

We had been anticipating this wedding day for quite some time. Miranda had contacted us some two years before to begin the planning of this very special day...Miranda & Stephen had originally met in Orange, and wanted to bring everyone here to share in their special day. Not one guest was from the area, with everyone travelling from all over the country.We worked with Miranda & Stephen to source and plans all their suppliers - from finding the perfect venue, to the best photographer, hairdresser, make up artist & cake maker for their wedding.The day definitely didn't disappoint, set in the Botanic Gardens it fell on one of the warmest March days we've experienced. The ceremony was held under the weeping elm, with the reception at Botanic.With a berry palette, pops of watercolour & vintage silver, every little detail of the styling stayed true to the original design. Both Miranda & Stephen were incredibly trusting of us with the styling and floral design, and the pics speak for themselves - the day came together beautifully.Many happy wishes to Miranda & Stephen xo

Real Wedding: Josh & Emma

Getting to style in new spaces is fun. Especially when we're given a completely blank canvas...

For Josh & Emma's wedding day we travelled to Narromine to play at the racecourse, and the very large betting shed positioned right on the track.

With timber chairs, hanging ladders, eclectic blooms and loads of twinkling light we created a glamourous vintage country wedding. 

Inside, two long banquet tables stretched down the length of the shed. Festoons and chandeliers sparkled overhead. While the hanging ladders were filled with dripping peppercorn and amaranthus.

Outside, it was fairy light heaven above the dancefloor and vintage lounge area. Guests danced well into the night in celebration of Emma & Josh.

Massive thanks to these guys for trusting us with their day - and we hope to be back in Narromine very soon!

Venue Spotlight: The Dance Hall

Super excited to receive word there's another sweet country wedding venue on the scene in Orange...

We had the chance to work at The Dance Hall only last month for a corporate event. It's a great rustic space out at the Bite Riot Orchard, headed up by the clever Kirsty Stokes.

Kirsty has big plans for the space, with renovations currently underway to make it super special for weddings and events. Think old school hall, with corrugated iron for days, sweet timber detailing inside, with an apple orchard on one side & a giant dam on the other...

It's going to be fun!

For more info get in touch with Kirsty via The Dance Hall.

Real Wedding: Chantel & Rich

Stunning couple. Stellar venue. Gorgeous day. Always makes for a great wedding...

Chantel & Rich married at Patina Wines - a beautiful family winery set on the outskirts of Orange.

Their wedding was set within the immaculate gardens & terrace of Chantel's family home. We added seasonal florals & romantic candlelight - the final touches to an already spectacular setting.

Working with a rich autumn palette & elegant direction, seasonal blooms included dahlias, orchids, roses, and amaranthus. While tall taper candles in silver candelabras, and crystal cut glass added a touch of glamour at night.

Thanks to Nadine Saacks Photography for sharing these photos with us - you can see more beautiful details here.
