The wedding ceremony was held in the Parterre or formal gardens of Werribee Park. ‘Parterre’ is French meaning ‘on the ground’. The geometrically designed floral displays of Werribee Park's Parterre are best viewed from Werribee Mansion's balcony. The gardens contain approximately 20,000 annuals planted every six months.
"Our brief from the bride and groom was to create a classy, Gatsby-inspired wedding theme. From here a colour scheme of red, gold white and black was chosen. We used gold mirrors in the signage detailing (with some laser-cut detailing), and gold cutlery and crockery added to the 'glam factor'."
Garden-inspired floral designs incorporated red, deep red and white and worked harmoniously with the surrounds. At the altar, sculptural floral designs sat atop acrylic plinths. "The florals took on free form shapes with a sense of movement and grandeur. The flowers were equally bold and dramatic for the reception with large, lush sculptural floral formations adorning the centre of a long bridal table and nine circular guest tables."
