With so many fabulous places to draw inspiration from when planning your big day, it can be hard to edit your ideas down to just a few! After her Delightful Dunsborough Wedding, Bride Hayley shared some great words of advice for anyone struggling with choosing a theme, or looking for tips on how to prepare for the event in general!
“Don’t get too set on an idea or theme, things may come up along the way that you may like better.. being too stuck on a certain look or idea can make things harder than needed. Get plenty of sleep the night before! On the big day relax and enjoy the company of your new husband and your family and friends! Expect the budget to blow out and just go with it. ”

Some fantastic advice today from Bride Fran, after her Sweet Terindah Estate Wedding to Groom Duncan. Perfect wisdom for those who like to be in control of their own day!
“Spend the money on the things that you love. We wanted to cut a cake, but as we were serving desert we didn’t need this cake to be anything huge. So I went to a fabulous French patisserie and bought the yummiest chocolate brownie cake, which we all enjoyed the next day. Don’t let anyone laugh at your spread sheet. I’m not a very organised person naturally, so having everything in one place really helped – it also kept tabs on the budget. ”

Sam and Amanda
I met Sam through mutual friends and we hit it off instantly – we shared a love of food, a passion for life AND we were both Italian! We decided to hold our romantic wedding at Terrara House Estate in the Shoalhaven Region of NSW, near Berry, in a large but intimate celebration with our nearest and dearest. As soon as you drive into the enormous Terrara House Estate in the small suburb of Terara, near Berry on the South Coast of NSW, you’re surrounded by green pastures, gorgeous aged trees and perfectly manicured lawns.
My dress was a soft pink gown by Allure Bridal by Spurling. Sam and his groomsmen wore navy suits by MJ Bale, and the stunning bridesmaids wore black silk dresses by Forever New. The girls’ hair and makeup was done by the fabulous Rachel Pitt from The Bridal Makeup Co. I wanted a classic and understated makeup look for myself and my bridesmaids. The lovely Vanessa Henwood from The Bridal Hair Co. did my hair in a soft curled updo, which was easy to release for photos and the reception after the formalities.
Our photographers from iStyle Photography did a great job of capturing me walking down the aisle to “Marry Me” by Train.
Ms Gingham says: What a beautiful wedding! Congratulations Amanda and Sam!
Amanda says: “We’re currently on honeymoon in the USA and Mexico and I thought I’d share this special day with all your readers :)”
