Lauren + Gabriel

Ceremony location: Entally Estate, Hadpsen on the Homestead side. We got married under a 100-year old cedar tree that was truly stunning. Our guests had drinks and nibbles on picnic blankets in the garden between the ceremony and reception.

Reception location: Entally Estate on the Rutherglen side – it was really great to keep the wedding all on one site, it meant working with only one business to plan for the day, plus our guests were able to navigate easily between the ceremony and reception. We had dinner the night before our wedding in the restaurant with the bridal party, and many of our guests stayed the night with us in the Lodge and grabbed breakfast together at the café the next day.

Dress / Designer: Allure Bridal 9068

Photographer: Fiona Vail – we absolutely loved her intimate, relaxed storytelling style. Fiona was VERY pregnant when she shot our wedding and we still feel fortunate that she was able to capture our special day before she had her little one.

Videographer: I wanted a videographer and Gabe didn’t – so we flipped a coin for it! Ian’s videography was discreet and unobtrusive, to the point where we actually forgot he was there. We loved the way he captured the raw, real moments of our wedding day. Ian was one of the details which we are both so glad we went with – we’ve watched his video many times with friends and family since our wedding, and it has made a special keepsake.

Make-up: Tanisha Koops – I asked for a natural look with luminous, glowing skin, something a little bit special but not too different from my everyday look. When I looked in the mirror after Tanisha worked her magic, I was a little overwhelmed! I felt beautiful in how she had painted my face.

Hair: Bianca Hannah – Bianca has been a friend for years and was a big part in keeping my nerves at bay on the day! I absolutely loved how she styled my unruly hair in to long, flowing curls.

Bridesmaids wore: Adrinna Papell – my sister Maddy chose a dress she loved, her ‘Serena’ dress (for any Gossip Girl fans out there!)

Shoes: Tony Bianco – I’m a long-time fan of Tony’s and it felt right to wear a pair of his shoes on our wedding day. I chose nude shoes that were suggested by a friend. They were comfortable and perfect for dancing and I’ve worn them again and again since our wedding.

Jewellery: Samantha Wills – I love Samantha’s boho style and when I spotted my earrings online I knew they were what I wanted.

Flowers: Outside Wholesale flowers – I wanted an unstructured, medium size bouquet. Leading up to the wedding I fell in love with spinning gum, proteas and moody florals, which featured in my bouquet.

Styling: That Old Chestnut (now ‘Brad and Ash Bespoke’). Our designers were one of the first things we knew we wanted for our wedding. They were incredible to work with – excellent communication, patient and professional. They really made our vision of a botanical ‘outdoor wedding indoors’ come to life.

Groom’s & Groomsmen outfits: Roger David. The groomsmen lived out of state, so having a business that had stores nationally made the whole process very easy.

Celebrant: Sarah Rookes – Sarah is a relative of a friend and was so helpful with our creation of the ceremony. We knew we were after a relaxed, intimate and personal ceremony and Sarah was accommodating of that. She was also a big help to Gabe as he was waiting for me to walk down the aisle (15 minutes late!)

How many guests attended your wedding? 90

What month was your wedding? March

How was the weather on your wedding day? It was reasonably cool, the sun came out right before the ceremony which made it perfect weather for an outdoor wedding.

In one sentence, how would you best describe your wedding style? Natural, a mixture between boho and vintage. I didn’t really subscribe to a particular style, I just made choices that helped me feel confident and comfortable on the day.

What surprised you about the bridal gown shopping experience? That I found so many dresses I really liked – it was hard for me to chose just one! I don’t believe in ‘the one’ perfect dress.

What advice would you pass on to your maids’ for their bridal shopping experience? Go with your gut – there are so many blogs and magazines out there with bridal trends and styles, ultimately go with something you feel luxe and comfortable in.

LW BRIDE // Jayne + Chris

Our hearts are in total meltdown mode over this beautiful summer wedding in the Huon Valley. With all the rustic charm a country location has to offer, Jayne & Chris brought together 130 of their closest friends and family to celebrate the beginning of their lives together as a married couple. We caught up with Jayne to discover her highlights from the big day, experience as a brand new bride and to show off the photos we believe are some of the most beautiful we’ve seen for a Tassie wedding!

Highlights:

The endless greenery turned this rustic barn in to an ethereal setting (the sort you’d find in the pages of a fairytale book!) What impressed us most is that Jayne, the beautiful bride, was responsible for the DIY Decor! While opting for rustic charm with added greenery, Jayne says of her big day:

We wanted to add a touch of glamour as well, with lots of candles & finer details.

The Finer Details

With the ceremony held at St Clements Church, the wedding had a traditional feel that flowed in to a more relaxed evening in a beautiful old barn.

Groomsmen dressed by: Myer

Celebrant: Harry Cuthbertson

Advice for other brides shopping for their gown: Don’t overwhelm yourself by trying on too many dresses, and be open to trying on something different to what you have in mind (you can definitely trust the LW team!)
