Louise + Paul // A Coolah Wedding

September 2016 // As far as country wedding goes - this one was a stunner (and jam-packed with handmade love)! We asked the bride to share her favourite memories of the day with us:
"Paul and I are very fortunate to live in the city but have an escape to the country in the form of my parents' family farm. Paul, the city boy, would visit my parents on the property even on his own when I was away travelling early in our relationship, and it was here he proposed atop a hill overlooking the property. Exactly a year later we were married in the same spot, with the sun shining and the paddocks lush and beautiful!
That almost wasn't the case though. The weeks leading up to the ceremony threw down buckets of rain and we had to move the marquee, lay old carpet and drop fences to make sure no-one would be stuck in the mud. The morning of the wedding the sun was shining and the sky filled with stunning cloud formations – the paddocks and damns looking their utmost best! We could not believe it!
The ceremony was perfect, our friend George playing acoustic guitar as we stepped out of the scrub, the backdrop of cliffs behind us. Standing on the alter with all our beautiful family and friends around us, and the valley beyond – it really did take our breath away!
With Paul an Architectural graduate and myself a graphic designer, we wanted to do everything ourselves! We designed invitations, signage, dresses, the cake, small ceramic favours, the flowers, and everything in between! And as the day grew closer, the stress levels rose! But we pulled it all off, and from the moment the ceremony was over, and with the help of our incredible photographer, we all relaxed and rolled on down the hill to the garden to enjoy the party!
The best part of all was sneaking away at midnight and laying down to sleep in our 'glamping' bell tent, and hearing the pitter-patter of rain start on the canvas. We could not have planned it more perfectly – how lucky were we!"

Bec + Craig // A Mudgee Wedding

December 2016 // Bec and Craig met at a St Hallets long lunch in Sydney, and fell in love shortly after. The Vinegrove at Mudgee made perfect sense for a wedding venue, with its rustic elegance and flowing vines. A warm day was followed by a cool night, and the firepit was lit. Local produce and wines showcased just how good Mudgee is! The new Mr and Mrs have wonderful memories of their special day and send big love and thanks to everyone who was involved.
