Some weddings come together so well they should be viewed in an art gallery, well that's what I think about the stunning wedding of Jewels and Mike. Captured by the very talented Chris Prestidge from atdusk photography, this wedding playfully appeals to your inner-child, whilst retaining a sophisticated, vintage spirit. Yes, I'm in love with this wedding!
Here is the beautiful photography from the wedding - now you can fall in love too!
We wanted the day to be fun for everyone, and had oversized chess, croquet and picnic blankets planned for roving canapes to be served upon. The beautiful Southern Highlands thew us a curve ball with some cooler weather, so these ideas were brought into the ballroom instead. We had live music from the talented Groove Academy, which we brought down from Sydney - they played 3 sets throughout the night an really created a warm, romantic energy. We seized a short break in the weather to have our ceremony outside as we had planned, it was a really heartfelt, sweet ceremony with some laugh out loud moments which was just what we were after. When the celebrant announced 'Mr & Mrs' for the first time, our live band hiding amongst our guests broke into Frankie Valli's 'Can't take my eyes off you'- quite a moment.
We took off into the grounds at Summerlees for a quick photo session, while our guests tucked into the delicious canapes by the amazing Darren Robertson.
After dinner we cut our divine Faye Cahill 3 tier cake so it could be plated up for dessert - she was able to interpret the illustration from our invitations & Jam/Relish Bomboniere's onto the cake which was incredible.
We had our first dance to 'My baby just cares for me' by Ella Fitzgerald - followed by a 1 hour set by a Greek Band who had everyone up and dancing in a flash. The Groove Academy continued to entertain the heaving dance floor for the rest of the night where we did an impromptu modern interpretation of the garter/bouquet toss - with no announcement we just began tossing around the garter/bouquet like a game of hot potato. After our goodbyes we skipped across the grounds to Summerlees Cottage where we spent our first night as husband and wife.
