"Rob & I initially were looking at holding the party at a venue but felt restricted with what we wanted to do. I am a very creative and resourceful person and wanted to source and make much of the décor and decorations myself. "
The engagement gathering of Russell & Peita was held in Berillee about an hour from Sydney on a beautiful rural property on a rainy Sunday. The downpour did not dampen the smiles and laughter of everyone who attended. The party was a smart / casual afternoon barbeque with family and friends who gathered from many parts of Sydney and the Central Coast.
1. Personality trumps Tradition
Break the rules. It's your day and you don't have to follow a formula. Don't book the venue before you've established the type and format of your wedding. Is it a full sit-down meal, a picnic, an intimate affair somewhere secluded, a brunch, cocktail party or a traditional service in a church? Have fun and think outside the square. Gone are the days of cookie-cutter weddings; make the day all about you by setting the style and scene early on.
Tuscan Inspired Wedding Reception
Style your wedding as you would your home. It should feel personal. Develop a plan with imagery and reference - it should be one of the first things you do. Collect the things that you love - ideas, colours, favourite pieces and weave them all together
