Jenny and Callum’s Bright and Summery Fun Festival Themed Wedding by Matt Wing

As we ease ourselves gently into the week, I have the most gorgeous festival themed wedding from Matt Wing. I featured Matt’s work a couple of years ago with Camilla and Joseph’s stunning Preston Court wedding, this time it’s the turn of Callum and Jenny. Callum and Jenny loved Browning Brothers – Chalkney Water Meadows as it had everything they wanted in a wedding. A glamping spot so their guests could camp, a stunning area for their tipis’ which meant they could hold their ceremony outdoors. But most of all the freedom to hold their wedding their way, with face painters, dogs, children, great food, lots of cocktails and a kick ass party!

Our day had the perfect mix between a casual get together of friends and family, and a celebration of our commitment to each another. With a fun festival theme full of tipis, ice cream bikes, food stalls, face painting, live music, hula hooping, space hopping, dancing, fire pit singing, children, dogs, white Russians, rope-swinging, friends and family!

Callum and Jenny were married on 7th July 2018 at Browning Brothers – Chalkney Water Meadows. ‘It was the only venue we visited. As soon as we arrived and walked around the lake we got a really good feeling and we could imagine all our friends and family there celebrating! The venue was perfect for us as guests can glamp in the tipis on site and it is all in one area. There is a beautiful lakehouse where I stayed with some of the bridesmaids the night before that is a short walk to the ceremony. We felt it had everything – and they allow dogs! We had 170 guests and it took a year to plan.’

Gabrielle and Jared’s Relaxed Garden Party Wedding in Melbourne by Darin Collison

Happy Monday everyone, I do hope you have had a wonderful weekend? Did you get up to anything wedding related? I’d love to hear about your weekend activities. We had two parties this weekend. Saturday was a friend’s house/garden party and Sunday was a children’s birthday party! It was lovely to spend some time with friends and have a good catch up! On with this weeks weddings and I have some real beauties for you, starting with today’s stunning wedding from Melbourne. Sometimes weddings don’t have to be all about the details and decor. For me, with some weddings, it’s all about the amazing photography, the use of light, the emotion caught on camera and the overall feel of love you get from being in the privileged position to view a couple’s wedding. Darin Collison is one such photographer and he has captured Gabrielle and Jared’s wedding so beautifully, the pictures really do speak for themselves. Big thanks to www.bweddinginvitations.com for sending me the gorgeous submission.

We hoped to strike the balance between ticking off the important formalities whilst creating a fun party atmosphere. It’s so tricky to narrow down exactly what variables create the perfect balance – but we think we created something special. It truly was the best, day, ever.

Gabrielle and Jared were married on 9th December 2017 at The Farm Yarra Valley, Victoria, Melbourne. ‘Totally cheesy, but it really was love at first sight with The Farm. It was the first and only venue that we looked at. It was everything we were looking for. We had 102 guests and it took 14 months to plan.’

Lyndsay and Steve’s Botanical Themed Castle Wedding in Dorset by Kit Myers

Happy Friday everyone, I do hope you have had a good week? It’s been a strange one for me as Dexter started School this week. He has loved it, but I am just getting used to my own new routine, getting up earlier, new hours in the office and still catching up from my week away last week. We have a weekend of parties to look forward to and catching up with old friends, what about you? I am finishing the week with this gorgeous Castle Wedding. The castle in question is Lulworth Castle in Dorset and what a stunning venue it makes! Lyndsay and Steve went all out with their botanical theme and added lots of gorgeous foliage to their decoration, along with 6 birch trees that they used as very large and dramatic centre pieces. The whole day looks amazing! Big thanks to Kit Myers for the lovely images.

The day felt surreal, like watching a film we’d produced unfold in front of our eyes. We felt incredibly lucky to be getting married in a place as special as Lulworth Castle, surrounded by our most favourite people in the world – it was exactly how we’d dreamed it would be. 

Lyndsay and Steve were married on 30th June 2018, they held their ceremony at Chapel of St Mary, The Lulworth Estate with the reception at Lulworth Castle in Dorset. ‘We both wanted somewhere really unique and memorable, and being an Interior Designer (Lyndsay) the aesthetic of the venue and the potential to make a statement within it was really important to me. We instantly fell in love with the Georgian Chapel on the grounds of the Castle which was designed to look like a Classical Mausoleum and features an incredible painted domed ceiling. The Castle itself overwhelmed us the first time we visited and we were especially drawn to the raw beauty of the interior which was left largely untouched after a huge fire in the 1920s. We just knew that the exposed and rustic nature of the rooms inside would provide the most perfect blank canvas for us to have our day. We had 104 guests and it took 18months to plan.’
