What sort of style did you envision for your wedding day?
Adam and I both appreciate traditional qualities and we wanted our day to be an elegant celebration. Our heritage listed beachside church provided the perfect place to share our vows. With simple white lanterns adorned along the aisle the church itself stole the attention. Picturesque with rose gardens to greet our guests and a historic church bell that rang out as we walked out as husband and wife.
Terindah Estate in Bellarine is an exclusive award-winning venue. Stunning and sophisticated, the country estate sits amid the vineyards, overlooking beautiful fields with a peaceful ocean backdrop. Adam and I fell in love with Terindah as soon as we saw it.
We wanted to make the most of the picturesque views and the nearby ocean in terms of a theme. Whilst maintaining an elegant approach we kept our styling clean and natural.
Lots of crisp white linens, finished off with gold accents and warm candle light.
We had four long tables adorned with lots of green foliage, gold napkin rings, gold table top towers with cascading greenery gave us the element of texture and height working in filling the light and open space.
The long lush tables with candles running down the center were met with a large ceiling installation created by the lovely and talented Danielle from Moss Industries; made of leafy greens, local ferns it worked in creating an almost waterfall like piece that tied in the theme and captured everyone’s attention as they walked into the room.
We wanted our guests to feel as though they were sharing a meal with family and so we opted for share platters to add warmth to the evening, encouraging conversation whilst guests were dinning. Our favors were small boxes of traditional Lebanese sweets individually boxed and wrapped with silk gold ribbon for each guest. Tying in with my heritage and the tradition of the sweets, which are often used to celebrate a special occasion, these favors were a lovely addition to the tables and the guests loved them.
