By the riverside
Having grown up visiting Yarrawonga and spending time water skiing on the river there, it felt natural for Danielle and Murray to choose Tindarra Resort as their wedding venue. It was the complete outdoor space they had wanted to make the wedding entirely their own. “We also liked the idea of having a wedding just far enough away so that our guests could make a weekend of it or drive home if they wanted to. We hosted a barbeque on the Friday evening for our guests to mingle with others before the wedding and it gave Murray and I the opportunity to talk to everyone. It was one of the best decisions we made because on the wedding day we didn’t feel as though we were madly dashing around trying to speak to everyone.”
Danielle and Murray aimed to have a relaxed wedding, “With that as our focus the whole planning process was quite laid back too,” Danielle said. The couple chose a colour scheme of yellow, white and green. “The emblem of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is a rose and Murray likes yellow the symbol of friendship so we decided to have yellow roses at the centre of all our floral arrangements.” Danielle sourced recycled pallets from a nursery that were repurposed into rustic wooden flowerboxes.
Shades of yellow were also present through all the decorations from the lanterns, to the garden games, the linen napkins to the comfy shoes provided for guests.
Other fun ideas included changing the bathroom signs to black and white photos of when Murray was a pageboy and Danielle a flowergirl. “Our seating chart was made up of photos of all of our guest’s faces with a table number that read, ‘Find your face to find your place’. We also had a hashtag for our guests’ photos #daniellesgettingmurrayed.”
