Australia, via Europe
After viewing several venues in Melbourne, Lauren and Adam chose Abbotsford Convent as their wedding venue. "When we visited the convent we immediately knew it was the perfect location for our wedding. With its grand architecture and rich heritage, it almost felt like we were in Europe! Also, being so close to the city, Abbotsford Convent's location was great as we had guests coming from overseas and interstate. It also had a Catholic Chapel, The Good Shepherd Chapel, which was important to us."
"We wanted our wedding to have an understated elegance. We wanted it to be somewhat traditional yet relaxed at the same time. The venue spoke for itself, however we wanted to accentuate its beauty, so we focused on decorating with beautiful flowers and ensuring the atmosphere was just right. We achieved this with great table settings and an awesome band."
"Our wedding day was wonderful and completely magical. The reception in particular was epic. There was an amazing hanging floral installation above the dance floor which was so special to dance beneath for our first dance!" Lauren and Adam danced to The Lumineers' song 'Ho Hey'.
