Erin and Dean

Erin and Dean started dating twelve years ago through mutual friend and on their eleventh anniversary, they tied the knot in a traditional, romantic wedding in the heart of Sydney. Welsch Photography captured the day, from Erin’s sparkling wedding heels to the first dance accompanied by fireworks. What a night to remember!

Erin chose a v neck gown by Karen Willis Holmes with silver heels by Jimmy Choo.

The couple chose a beautiful building for their wedding ceremony – Glebe Town Hall. Erin noting, “We held the ceremony at Glebe Town Hall, a beautiful building built in 1880 and restored in 2013. The building was beautiful, very regal, which suited the theme of our wedding. The main hall was where we held the ceremony, and I entered through beautiful big double wooden paneled doors, at the top of a grand wooden staircase. Beautiful stained-glass windows and natural light created a classic and beautiful ambiance. Family photos were taken after he ceremony, on the landing outside the main hall.”

Erin walked down the aisle to Pachelbel’s Canon In D.

Erin remembers, “We had pre-ceremony canapes and drinks at the Glebe Town Hall, as a lot of our guests had come from far to be at the wedding. Our guests were able to have something to eat and drink, and mingle with friends and family before the ceremony began. Dean’s sister sang a beautiful song to us at the ceremony – she kept the actual song a secret and surprised us on the day.”

The floral arrangements on the day were styled by Flowers by Helen Brown. Erin says, “I can highly recommend ‘Flowers by Helen Brown’ for great service and impeccable flowers.”

Of their photographers, Erin notes, “Our photographers were Bec and Karl Welsch, of Welsch Photography. They managed to capture the essence of our day, all the emotion, love and happiness. We wanted more natural photography instead of staged and posed, and they were excellent at capturing those precious moments as they happened.”

Erin and Dean chose the Quayside Room at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Circular Quay for the reception. Erin remembering, “The room was set out in a beautiful gold and silver theme, with tall candelabras as centre pieces, surrounded by fragrant floral arrangements. Guests were able to enjoy the incredible sunset of the balcony of the reception room, overlooking Sydney Harbour. A wonderful chance for our guests to catch up with friends and family, and enjoy the stunning surroundings! We had a wonderful jazz band playing whilst canapes on the balcony were being served, and during dinner – it added to the joyful and happy buzz during the reception!”

Guests received a special homemade favour, says Erin, “We brewed our own beer for the favors, as Dean has brewed his own beer for many years, in keeping with his creative chef-ing background. We brewed Hefenweizen, bottled it ourselves, and complemented the look with tags made to hang around the neck of the bottle with a thank-you message on them. The cake by Naco at Cake Atelier was superb!”

Erin remarks, “Our day was so wonderfully joyful – it meant so much to us that we were able to have such a beautiful weekend of celebrations with our family and friends. The memories created will be cherished forever… So many wonderful stories, the smiles, our incredibly special exchange of vows, our family and friends, the heartfelt speeches, our first dance…”

I had been ballroom dancing for 15 years, so we both went and had lessons together, and a beautiful traditional Waltz was choreographed for us at The Promenade Dance Studio. We enjoyed our dance lessons leading up the the wedding, and had a wonderful time dancing together as husband and wife. Our first dance was performed to ‘Two Socks Plays’, an instrumental track from Dancing with Wolves.”

Jorja and James’ Bowral Garden Wedding

Jorja and James

Jorja and James were set on a garden party feel for their wedding. They tried venue after venue, but none would allow them to have their reception outside in case of rain. Finally, they remembered how much James loved his parent’s home in Bowral and soon it was set in stone – this would be their wedding venue. They married on the verandah and dined under the stars, dodging a few wayward storms! Their day was beautifully captured, underneath the trees by Gemma Clarke Photography .

Jorja tells the story of how they came to be. “I worked at McDonalds and James worked at the pub across the road. He used to come in for coffee each time and we got to know each other. We had a few mutual friends and ended up seeing each other at friend’s birthdays. One thing led to the other and I eventually forced him into asking me out!”

The flowers were a DIY project, Jorja noting, “We did all our own flowers by heading to the flower markets the day before. I really wanted a ‘picked a bunch of flowers from the garden’ look.”

The bride wore a strapless Collette Dinnigan gown and the bridesmaids wore dresses from  One Teaspoon, Sabo Skirt & Asos. All of the girls wore shoes from Minty Meets Munt. Jorja explaining, “The bridesmaid dresses were all sourced online and chosen by themselves, I wanted something they loved and would wear again. They didn’t see each other’s dresses until the day! The flower girls’ dresses I picked up from a market stall for $30!”

Jorja and James married in Bowral at James’ parents home. Jorja tells, “We were set on having the wedding in a garden outside. Unfortunately, not a lot of venues would allow us to have it outside in case of rain. James loves his parent’s property so it seemed fitting to ask his parents if we could have it there!” The groom and groomsmen wore different outfits from Roger David, tying together grey and yellow accents.

The ceremony was decorated simply with the trees providing most of the decoration. Jorja says, “My bridesmaids and I spent hours making tissue paper pom poms, bunting and wrapping twine around glass jars to hang from the trees for tea lights.”

The ceremony spot was decorated with family photos, Jorja remembering, “One of our most favourite touches was having our families’ wedding photos hanging behind us during the ceremony, it was like everyone who couldn’t be there was with us in spirit.”

Of their photographer, Jorja says, “Gemma is lovely, funny and quirky but most of all she is PASSIONATE and this is so evident in her photographs. From the first email that Gemma sent me I knew I had chosen the right photographer for James and I. On the day, Gemma and her assistant (her oh so lovely father) were absolutely brilliant to work with, they made the entire bridal party feel comfortable and never made us do those horrid posed photos! Gemma completed captured the style of relaxed photography I had always wanted. My guests and bridal party did not stop raving about Gemma, her ability to blend into the crowd, to chat amongst the guests, to capture those candid moments. I would highly recommend Gemma to anyone!”

Guests dined at a long table underneath the trees, Jorja telling, ‘When James and I started planning our wedding the first words that came to our mind were relaxed, loved and family. We knew instantly we wanted it to feel like a laid back garden party. This is where the idea of having it at home and the long table with platters of food came from. We envisioned sitting down with our family for a Sunday roast. Pinterest was a huge help, I was constantly finding our ideas and then working our how to add our own touches.”  M&B Catering ensured guests dined in luxury.

The couple did away with sweet cake, instead choosing a savoury alternative! Jorja explains, “We made our own Cheese Wheel Cake – and by making, I mean buying the blocks and stacking them on top of each other!” Guests also enjoyed a dessert table – chocolate mousse, shortbread, meringues, trifle and little cakes made by the groom’s mother.

“We requested people to put the songs that would get them dancing, in the RSVP, and compiled a song list to suit our guests and hooked our iPod up to a sound system. I also collected jars to hang in the trees for lighting. I was never keen on having a DJ for fear they were going to bust out ‘Love Shack’ so we asked all our guests to write a song that they would dance to on their RSVP and then we compiled all the songs to make a guest list and put it on our iPod. When I think back on the day, it was everything I had dreamt of, and had turned out so wonderfully.”

Sophie and Sam

When I first saw this wedding pop up on Instagram last year through Louisa Bailey I think I lost my breath. A bride in a tangerine gown? As someone who is so utterly traditional in a sense, I am always beyond excited when brides express their different personalities and wear a beautiful, coloured gown.

Sophie and Sam chose a modern feel for their wedding day – from the garden ceremony, the tangerine gown to a St Kilda Stokehouse reception and an outfit change into silver sequins. They did it their way and it was awesome. On how they met, Sophie tells, “We met in rehab (a great joke but also true!) We are both (working) in health and Sam fell head over heels for Soph over a rehab meeting at St Vincents Hospital.”

Sophie and Sam met before the ceremony for photographs. Of their photographer Louisa, Sophie says, “Louisa was the epitome of professionalism, artistic flair, with down to earth approach, warmth and the ability to make you feel at ease the moment you meet her. She became more a part of the wedding rather than an external aspect.”

Sophie remembers, “Sam’s mother organised the garden, champagne & catering at her house for the reception which was full of bright orange, pink and red hues (tulips & roses) and managed to have our cake (a croquembouche from The French Lettuce) draped with bright rose petals also.”

“Our wedding was so special because it reflected us as a couple, there was plenty of humour in our ceremony/vows and a change of outfits for the evening to reflect our sense of fun together and that we were in full celebration mode- we matched our outfits and had great fun with it!”

The reception was held at Stokehouse, the couple telling, “Stokehouse was classy, efficient and very friendly.
