“Our wedding planner Georgie was fantastic at translating our thoughts into contemporary and beautiful styling that represented us and was meaningful to our families. From the marquee design to the small details such as monogrammed coasters it was more than we could have imagined.”
Amelia and Charlie had custom lighting which featured large light shades of navy and green tartan on the outside and gold fabric on the inside. They were installed above the bridal table and were a surprise for Charlie’s family as a representation of their family tartan. In keeping with the colour scheme of shades of blue, gold and cream, the overall style featured bold navy accents and cream draping covered the ceiling. “We also had a flower wall of hydrangeas that spanned the width of the marquee.” Hydrangeas were the dominant flower of choice and brought the beauty of outdoors inside at both the wedding reception and at the ceremony. “It was a luxurious garden party.”
Amelia and Charlie’s reception marquee had a warm and inviting atmosphere with candles in a variety of crystal and gold lined glass holders and an abundance of flowers.
“Outdoor seating included a separate bar with high tables and bentwood stools, festoon lighting and blue velvet couches with cream coloured footstools. The marquee was positioned beside the lake and we watched the sun set over the gardens.”
OUR ADVICE | “There will be moments during the planning process that worry you, like getting the invitations out on time and the seating plan may be a topic of discussion for weeks but ultimately all of these concerns melt away on the day because what matters most is celebrating with your loved ones.
Create a timeline and checklist of dates you need items completed by. Having one master Excel list for your guest list, addresses and seating arrangements is also really helpful.”
MUSIC | “Music is very important to Charlie and we wanted it to be a major part of the day. Charlie worked with Rutherford Entertainment to choose the song list and we had acoustic guitarists at the ceremony and the reception drinks, followed by a DJ and saxophonist for the evening.”
