Jenny & Jared
It was a two-day wedding festival for Jenny and Jared. Firstly – a simple ceremony, under a stunning tree surrounded by their friends and the next day? A lunch and dinner with plenty of dancing to celebrate it all! Jenny telling, “We met through friends when we were at University. We were friends for a few years before we started dating.” The couple worked with Hails and Shine (for their ceremony) and Kitty Wursthurn (for the following celebrations) to capture their days.
The bride wore three different looks from Rachel Gilbert noting, “There were three dresses – one for each event and they were all from Rachel Gilbert. I wanted to be able to wear all my dresses again at other events, so I chose a pewter coloured full-length gown for the ceremony, a white knee-length dress for the dinner reception, and a red knee-length dress for the lunch reception.”
Jenny and Jared worked with Elopement Collective to plan their ceremony, the team looking after everything on the day from the venue (Collingwood Children’s Farm) celebrant (Josh Withers) to a beautiful magenta and marsala hued bouquet from She’s a Wildflower. Jenny remarking, “We could not have organised two amazing days without two amazing vendors – Elopement Collective and Farm Cafe – who were both wonderful to work with. They helped us find amazing photographers, florists, and our celebrant. My favourite part of the wedding was seeing it all come together, as we had used lots of different vendors for decorations and stationery. It was great to support so many small businesses too.”
Jenny chose “Here Comes The Sun” by The Beatles for the processional.
The day after they were married, Jenny and Jared were joined by photographer Kitty Wursthorn for a traditional Chinese banquet at Shark Fin Inn. The bride remembering, “Kitty Wursthorn was our second photographer, who worked for 11 hours straight, to photograph both our receptions, as well as some activities in between. She was so easy to work with, and captured some amazing candid shots.”
