It was fun designing the first wedding held at The Farm Daylesford. This barn was already loaded with heaps of rustic character so we decided to go a little opposite with the styling and bring in contemporary pieces to work in with Hannah & Sam's black and white theme.
Classic-modern styling works so well in a rustic setting.
ROOM WITH A VIEW
Here we show how we converted a large restaurant space into an intimate reception for 45 guests.
There's a lot that we consider when we design the look of our weddings, and one of the main factors is how our couples want it to feel.
It's all about creating the right vibe, the right flow, the right atmosphere. Customising it to each couples personality is something we put great efforts into, and in turn we've found no two weddings the same.
MACEDON RANGES WEDDINGS
We have many wonderful local vendors here in the Ranges, it's a privilege to
be counted among them. The Macedon Ranges region has so much to offer that couples are spoilt for choice with both location and variety suppliers that they're bound to find something to suit their special day.
" Thanks for everything you did for us in the lead up and on our special day. You truly are such a gorgeous and beautiful person Theresa, and I hope you enjoy the video as much as we did! "
BREANNA & CALLUM
Casey & Tim's garden wedding had a wonderfully relaxed village feel, with yurts, canvas bell tents and food vans.
Two day's before the wedding the temperature dropped from 30o to 12o bringing along with it strong winds, rain, hail and sunshine, a mixed bag of every kind of weather.
It became clear to us on the morning of the wedding that we couldn't have things set out as planned with tealight holders smashing and flowers arrangements toppling over due to gusts of wind. So we improvised and put the flowers meant for cocktail tables in other areas throughout the reception.
Despite the crazy weather, Casey & Tim's wedding was a magic one full of music, a well stocked bar and amazing foods.
KATIE & NICK
When they first got in touch, Katie and Nick were living in Darwin where Nic's army base was located. Both grew up in Victoria and had hopes of finding a relaxed country venue to say their
i-do's. After their dream venue fell through, they contacted me for help with finding a new location as well as wedding design and co-ordination on the day.
Their brief was to have an atmosphere that was fun and relaxed in a classic country/rustic style.
"We’re not ‘spotlight’ people, so the idea of a wedding is both daunting and exciting. We’ve never planned parties or birthdays or any significant events. We’re hoping that this can be a fun, casual, beautiful and joyful wedding that everyone can enjoy and celebrate." - Katie
Every now and then we have a couple of spare minutes to film the set up of a wedding day.
We didn't quite capture all of the areas we pulled together for Katie and Nick, but here's a small taste for you:
If you have a firepit or a safe place to make a campfire at home, here's a little something you can do to occupy yourselves on one of your covid days. Cinnamon Twists!
It's slow and simple, and our family loved every minute of it.
2 cups of self raising flour
90 g of butter
1/2 teaspoon of salt
2/3 cup of milk
60 grams of butter softened
1 & 1/2 tablespoons of cinnamon
1/3 cup of caster sugar
I'm a sucker for the little moments. The snap shots of sun peeping through leaves, wind blowing across open fields, the feel of soft petals on finger tips. I've been lucky enough to collect a few behind the scenes moments while setting up special events along the way. Enjoy.
