Toby and Rosie

Toby and I met during high school and have been together since we were sixteen! After five years together, Toby proposed at Luna Park in Sydney, at the top of the Ferris Wheel!

Our wedding day was about celebrating the youthful nature of our relationship. A navy and pink colour scheme and a distinct carnival feel were the focus of the day. We were surrounded by all of our favourite people and the things that make us happy! Toby and I were married at St Peter’s Anglican Church in Watsons Bay and held our reception at The Tearooms at Vaucluse House.

My Brooch Bouquet, made by Fantasy Floral Designs, was a collection of brooches from friends and family members and it became a very sentimental piece. Some of our closest family members were not with us for this day; it was so special to have something from them with us and to be able to honour them in this way. My Henry Roth dress, bought from Brides of Beecroft, was called “Zoe”. My headpiece was by Suzy O’Rourke Sydney.

Our Bridesmaids wore navy dresses from Cue and an assortment of pearl and gold jewellery. They carried simple, rustic bouquets of baby’s breath.

Instead of traditional floral boutonnieres, we made our own that resembled medals in different colours for the Groomsmen, Groom and other family members.

I walked down the aisle to “The Feather Song” from the Forrest Gump soundtrack, which is Toby’s favourite film.

Our photographs were taken by Peter Diakonikolis. Pete was introduced to us through a mutual friend. From our first meeting with Pete, we knew he would do an amazing job. He was relaxed and had plenty of creative ideas – everything that we wanted in our photos!

Our evening reception was held at The Tearooms at Vaucluse House. The dining room was arranged in a banquet style, to continue the intimate setting. Toby and I collected and arranged the flowers ourselves at home a few days prior to the wedding – they still looked perfect on the day!

We tried to make or recycle as many of our decorations as possible. We decorated with handmade bunting and table runners, and collected glass jars to use for our floral arrangements. Toby is a carpenter and so made the photo frames and photo booth himself!

As gifts to our guests, lolly bags were accompanied by a lolly buffet set out using vintage glass bowls collected from second hand stores across Sydney.
