love and support
Our Special Words
Matt and I only really follow one commitment to each other - love and support each other no matter what, the good and the bad.
When deciding on the style of wedding we wanted we had very different views. I wanted a church wedding and sit down reception. Matt wanted a garden wedding and cocktail style. So we compromised. Our minister, Eadie, was amazing and more than happy to marry us outside and Rivendell our reception has stunning views and gardens. So after meeting Eadie and seeing Rivendell, we settled on an Anglican wedding, cocktail reception style with eclectic undertones that was relaxed and intimate. When styling the wedding we decided to let the reception venue speak for itself, with the views over the Tambo river and grape vines wrapped around the verandah. All I wanted to add was festoon lights to draw our guests out into the gardens and lots of flowers. By doing this it determined our colour palette - burgundy, blush, dark green and gold.
All our vendors were fantastic to work with. Our venue was beautiful; Annette and Peter and the team at Rivendell East
Gippsland did such a fantastic job creating a lovely space and every little detail had been thought of. Our guests are still raving about it.
Our flowers by Donna from Dear Delilah Florist were also so beautiful. She created the most perfect bouquets and arrangements with my requested colour palette and I was so excited when the flowers arrived at the hairdressers, I couldn't wait to get back to the wedding reception to see the rest.
Jacqui and her team from Jacqui's Catering at the New Leaf did our catering, which by all accounts was a huge success. The feasting table looked great and the food was delicious and plentiful for the whole evening. The cocktail style of food made it easy for the guests to move around and talk and catered for all the different dietary requirements.

Getting Hitched - Our One Piece of Advice
I will give the advice given to me - take time throughout the day to just stand back and appreciate it all. We are so glad we did. It makes you realise, there are not many times in your life you have all the people you love together in the one place at the one time.
