Lucy + Tim // A Dubbo Wedding

April 2018 //  Local lovers Lucy and Tim created a wedding that reflected their personalities and style perfectly - and we’re so excited to share it with you!
Lucy told us, “with a collaboration of vintage and bohemian influence, an amazing celebration was had with our dearest friends and family in the picturesque location of the Rawsonville Memorial Hall, the beautiful building was the centrepiece of the day. The wedding theme emerged through my creative interests as an art teacher, we combined bold blooms, colourful textiles, vintage brass candelabras, gold decadent mirrors, recycled french doors, palm leaf plates and carved antique styled bamboo cutlery to match.
Tim and I felt it was important to incorporate and support local produce, products and utilise local businesses within the area.
Tim and I felt it was important to incorporate and support local produce, products and utilise local businesses within the area. One example was our amazing thickened double cream produced just down the road from the hall by Little Big Dairy Co. Dolloped on top our scrumptious wedding cake handmade by the groom’s aunty. We did all the work ourselves
which helped keep costs down. Creating all of the foliage hangings and table flowers with the help of family and friends.
Our wedding favours were hand poured jars of honey, from local bee keeper Daniel Warman.
The rural scenery surrounding created a relaxed atmosphere, while guest enjoyed beverages served by Tenelle and her team from AuRevior Vintage Van in crystal cut glasses hired from Bespoke Country Weddings and canapés from Smoking Brothers Catering. Guests mingled amongst the hall, with the sun setting and light dappling through the kurrajong trees, resting drinks on wine barrels hired by Taylormade Weddings and Events and played a few games of bocce, croquet and jenga.
The unique, old and very private hall was brought to life for a night of celebration under the stars. We listened to countless classic songs by local talent and friends Isaac and Shane. Copious amounts of laughing through speeches and plenty of dancing about on the old timber floorboards. The hall and surrounding trees twinkled with an abundance of fairly lights, (handy marrying an electrician) under the clear night sky. Guests enjoyed the atmosphere as they kicked back on wicker lounges, listening to the band’s music fill the night air, while many partied on inside.
Finally our photographer Ben Adams, who believe it or not was a few years above me in school and who is now a very successful and sought after photographer from the Hunter Valley. Ben captured every second that made Tim and I truly happy on our wedding day. Our photos captured the day perfectly, every precious moment shared with our loved ones and ourselves. We cannot recommend him or any other business that we used on the day enough.
Talk about perfection!

Kat + Tim // A Dubbo Wedding

April 2017 // With the world still riding a wedding high after Harry and Meghan’s big day, we couldn’t help but show off another amazing local wedding with it’s own dose of #couplegoals.
Kat and Tim were married at the rustic Toongi Hall, on the outskirts of Dubbo. The couple told us, “we didn’t want to spend a mint to have a fun wedding, so over the year we collected decorations, made signs, and personal touches to make our wedding like us.
Toongi [Hall] had the perfect atmosphere for our country [wedding]. We are both campers so there was plenty of camp spots for us and our guests.”
From Kat’s stunning dress to the native florals and picturesque country setting, their special day really did have it all. To top it all off, they were surrounded by their favourite people, filling the day with plenty of love and laughter. Sounds like perfection!
