Rachel & Tom

We’ve been wanting to share Rachel & Tom’s wedding with you for a while, and now that the wedding season has ended we have found time to compile these beautiful photos by @shereeduboisphotography and share them with you.

After Tom’s romantic proposal to Rachel at Middle Island in Warrnambool, with their gorgeous son Oliver holding the ring, it was time for Rachel to begin planning her dream wedding. Rachel wanted a formal yet relaxed garden wedding, and loved designing and being creative, so the whole wedding planning gig was a breeze for her.

Rachel & Tom were the first to hire our brand new Peg & Pole marquee. With its traditional peaked roof, wooden upright poles and elegant roof & wall fabric, it sure was an exquisite marquee in this setting at the Warrnambool Botanic Gardens.

The happy couple loved absolutely everything about their day. The weather, the band, the marquee, the flowers, the food, everything was perfect! They were particularly impressed with their band The Baker Boys who Rachel said “absolutely made the night”.

Rachel & Tom - We wish you all the best in your marriage and thank you for being such awesome customers!

Kate & Andrew

We were pretty chuffed when we received these beautiful photos of Kate & Andrew’s wedding, our first wedding for the season this year!

The wedding marquee was positioned on in the side of a hill, in the middle of a paddock, at the Blair Athol property in Nareen, Victoria. With no running water or power it was a bit of effort to pull it together but the views from the marquee were stunning. With the majority of their guests traveling decent distances to be a part of their day, who had never seen that part of the world before, it was well worth it.

Marquee Wedding Reception

Kate & Andrew were married in the same church that Kate’s parents were married in, a private little chapel in the hills.

Kate wore her Grandmother’s wedding dress for the first part of the day. It was a lot of work to get it cleaned and restored but she said that it was so incredible to wear. The top part of the dress had to be remade by her dressmaker (Maree Ozer at Stiches to Style in High St Armadale).

Kate also surprised Andrew by organising two of their friends to sing his favourite song when she walked down the aisle. They had drinks in the churchyard afterwards and then all of their guests were bussed back to Kate's family farm at Nareen.

After drinks and canapés, Kate got changed into a Toni Maticevski dress and they sat down to the main meal. They didn’t have a bridal party and simply sat in the middle of the long tables with their guests. Kate's brother MC’ed the night and finished up with a fake race call which had their guests in stitches.. with Kate winning the race (of course!)
