We had a beautiful ceremony set-up that overlooked the water. I wanted to do something a little different with the wedding procession, so our grandmothers walked down the aisle with our mums, which was very special for all of us. My favourite moment of the day was walking down the aisle and seeing my handsome groom waiting for me. It’s a feeling that I can only describe as magical – everything and everyone faded away, and in those moments it was just the two of us.
After the ceremony, guests were offered Champagne and appetizers in the games room, which had pool tables, lounge chairs and arcade games. We also had an outdoor lounge set up for guests to enjoy the fine weather.
The reception space was transformed into a classic and romantic dinner party with silver vases filled with white peonies and roses, as well as tea light candles. The favourite item from my wedding was our wedding cake. It was a threetiered, pearl-finish cake with handcrafted shimmery peonies on top. The best part was my little puppy sticking his head out of the bottom tier – it made it more personal to us and added a cute surprise for our guests!
As soon as the formalities and dinner were over, it was time for the first dance, before all our friends and family joined in and partied the night away.
