Corina and Ian

A little nod to our southern friends today- a beautiful beach side wedding in Tasmania! In fact today’s couple Corina and Ian loved Tasmania so much, they traveled from Adelaide just to marry at their favourite place- Avalon Coastal Retreat.

Avalon holds a special place in Corina’s heart- it was where Ian proposed! “Last August, Ian (my now husband) tricked me into believing a friend had offered us free accommodation in Tassie. He assured me it was just a shack but when we arrived I discovered it was Avalon! A couple of days into our stay we walked to Wine Glass Bay lookout where we found a quiet spot where Ian proposed. He had planned everything 6 months earlier! We couldn’t imagine our wedding day to be anywhere else but at Avalon.”

There was no bridal party for Corina and Ian- just loved ones gathered around them. Corina’s creamy peony bouquet was created by Fig.

Corina walked down the aisle by herself to Maestro from the movie “The Holiday” played by Strings On Fire.

Of their gorgeous laid back Australian reception, Corina says “We wanted the day to be relaxed with canapés and champagne after the ceremony followed by a sit down lunch. We loved the idea of a long table with acoustic guitar played in the background whilst we ate.

People could come and go as they pleased, wonder down to the beach, have their picture taken at Jonathan’s photo booth or sit on the deck. We had simple table decorations consisting of roses for the table and gladdy’s inside.

Name cards, Menus and napkins were tied together with ribbon with a starfish on top. Inside we had candles & shells in hurricane lamps scattered around the room. We didn’t want to over do the decorations as Avalon and the scenery was perfect as it was.” The reception was catered by Angassi Restaurant from Bay Of Fires.

Corina says “We anticipated the weather in Tassie to be intermittent. The morning of the wedding was windy and cloudy  however when I walked out the sun shone …. it was magical. However after entrée and the speeches a big black cloud blew over us and it poured and we were sitting outside for dinner! When the rain passed we took the tablecloths off the tables and continued with the next course! Lucky it was 26 degrees (C) “.

One of Corina’s favourite memories happened during the speeches “I loved the speeches from our parents and friends and not to mention my groom’s speech especially when he announced we are going to Paris for our honeymoon!”
