Eloise & Ben

There is a big sense of romance at Eloise and Ben’s romantic polo club wedding. The couple consciously decided on ways to make their day meaningful to them. From a smaller guest list that included their fur babies, the bride’s father MC’ing the reception and the couple hand making much of their reception decor. The couple chose Angus Porter and team to capture their day both in stills and in motion!

Eloise tells their story. “We both share a love for live music so it was fitting that we actually met at a live gig in the city. Ben was with with his friends and I was with mine, our groups mingled and we all started chatting. It wasn’t long before we discovered that even though we lived almost an hour apart, I was from the North Shore and Ben was from the Hawkesbury (where we both now live), we found by amazing coincidence that I spent a lot of time horse riding at a friend’s neighbouring property just over the back fence of Ben’s family property. We hit it off from there and have never looked back. It sounds corny but we certainly believe it was one of those ‘meant to be’ moments.

The beautiful bouquets of red and white were styled by Sweet Bride.

Eloise and Ben married at Sydney Polo Club, the bride remarking “The Sydney Polo Club was just beautiful with its rustic and romantic charm and green paddocks as far as the eye could see. The grounds are immaculate and the Polo Barn where we had our reception was breathtaking lit up at night. We chose to have our wedding at the end of winter so the cherry blossoms were starting to bloom. The photos speak for themselves, it was a beautiful location and as we both share a love for the outdoors and horses, it was the perfect venue for us.”

Eloise walked down the aisle to Sweet Disposition – The Temper Trap .

Eloise notes, “We kept numbers down to 80 of our nearest and dearest so it was lovely to be able to get around and see everyone. We even had our beloved fur-babies at the ceremony, our two dogs Pippa and Humphrey which made the ceremony even more special. To have family and friends helping us along the way also meant so much and we couldn’t have done it without them.”

The couple chose Robyn Pattison to perform their marriage ceremony, Eloise remarking, “Our celebrant Robyn Pattison was brilliant. She made the whole process in the lead up to the wedding a breeze and was so thorough in her research of getting to know us, she was able to include a lot of personal touches and stories in our ceremony which made it all the more special for us.”

Of their photographer, Eloise tells, “Dan and the team were just outstanding. We had known Dan for a few years and had been lucky enough to be a part of a couple of shoots with him before, so it was only natural that he be a part of our special day. We felt so comfortable in the team’s company and had many comments on the day of how attentive they were, yet seemed to blend into the background. Many guests were surprised to discover that there was even a cinematographer there at all, they were very discreet. Not only did they do a great job (we are so thrilled with the finished product), but we had a whole lot of fun with them which was great.”

The bride wore a dress from Anna Campbell, her bridesmaids in ivory and gold gowns from Forever New, the groom and groomsmen outfitted in RM Williams. Eloise remembers, “In terms of Ben and my attire, I just adored my Anna Campbell gown, the fabric and lace was so beautiful, I didn’t want to take it off! Ben and the groomsmen wore R.M.Williams not only to coincide with our relaxed country feel of the day, but because it was important to feel like ‘us’ on our day and Ben is so at home in that style of clothing (and looked so handsome in it).”

Plenty of details were handmade by the couple, the bride telling, “Our wedding was quite the DIY affair not just because of budget, but we are a crafty hands on couple so it was something we wanted to do and had a lot of fun doing. We made all the table decorations, invitations and bonbonniere (our hand made rocky road). A gum tree limb came down in a storm at home, so Ben sliced it up into disks with a chainsaw which we then stained and used as table centerpieces. We also collected a whole heap of jars and beer bottles as well, but our favourite pieces were horse shoes that Ben welded together and spray painted gold which we used to display the table numbers. We hadn’t seen anything else like it so we were really proud of our little creation. We feel that it made our day all the more special knowing that our heart soul was present in all our DIY features and that the day was really made with love.”

The reception celebrations continued in the barn of the Sydney Polo Club, the bride telling, “As we aren’t really the traditional types, we wanted the day to be all about relaxed fun and for people to remember it for having a good time. My dad was MC because we didn’t want a stranger who didn’t know us as a couple to be speak for the evening…this naturally lead to a few good hearted digs at the groom but everyone had a good laugh and it just emphasised how we wanted the day to be about friends and family, it was an intimate and personal day.”

Craig Woodward & The Lonely Dogs were our band for the evening and they really rocked the barn. There were guests on the dance floor all night and we had a great time.”

“To keep with the theme of fun, we started the reception with a brief Trivia game involving questions relating to the bride and groom which was a lot of fun and a nice way for our guests to engage with one another on their tables. We also went against tradition with our bridal table and sat facing each other so we could interact with one another which was a highlight for us.”

Eloise remembers, “The most special thing for me as the bride, was definitely seeing Ben for the first time with the biggest smile on his face. I was so nervous and excited but it’s true what they say, as soon as he held my hand it felt like we were the only two in the room. The day absolutely flew, but when we were taken outside for a few night time photos, it was a lovely opportunity to sit back and go “wow, what a great day”.”

Angus Porter and his team also produced this video for the couple, I love the emotion and fun of it!

modern greenery wedding inspiration0031

I am a lover of greenery so when this modern greenery wedding inspiration shoot came my way I knew it would be beautiful to share. Lush ferns, trailing greenery and an industrial style backdrop give this shoot a look that modern edge with an almost eclectic, jungle botanical vibe. A custom poster adds a touch of fun to the reception space while the bride’s fern laden hairpiece and bouquet simply look stunning next to her simple wedding gown and the groom’s bone coloured suit.

Planned and conceived by Eva of Foreva Events,  the shoot drew from Brisbane Paddington suburb, Eva explaining, “The inspiration behind the shoot was to showcase Paddington at it’s finest by involving vendors in the area or located close by.”

Photographed by Florido Weddings , the Brisbane wedding team included stylist Styled Events, florist Lillipollen, stationer Urban Weddings, cake designer Deliberately Delicious, dress designer Fiorenza, men’s tailor Wil Valor, makeup artist Ella Bache, Paddington, hair stylist Globe Creative, venue The Railroom at Iceworks and beautiful cars from Princess Luxury Classics.

The Railroom at Iceworks set the scene for the “reception”. Eva of Foreva Events who planned and executed the shoot tells “The main attraction of the shoot was set as The Railroom at Iceworks. As The Railroom’s most distinguishing feature is its gorgeous hanging greenery we had Lillipollen combine a beautiful arrangement of green and white florals along the tables to really bring it out. We also had them put together a stunning hanging ivy, fern and white floral bouquet as well as a unique floral crown.”

Deliberately Delicious created a four tier wedding cake decorated in trailing greenery.

“With the efforts of Styled Events lighting up the room with extra fairy lights and lighting up their big green walls we really made the greenery stand out and were able to give the room a new glow that brought out the poster even more.”

Urban Weddings created a custom poster for the space, Eva explaining,  “As we wanted to do something a little different we had Urban Weddings put together a beautiful poster along the back wall stating “The best things in life just happen”, grabbing your eye as you first walk into the room.”

Gülşen & Fergus Handmade Orchard Wedding

Gülşen & Fergus

There is a sense of utter romance to this handmade orchard wedding – the couple, deciding to marry at home worked hard to get their home into wedding worthy condition. From an orchard working bee, to making the napkins and sourcing the wine. They even made the dance floor. They chose Joseph Koprek  to capture their memories.

The newlyweds remember their proposal story. “Fergus proposed to Gülşen while they were living in Turkey. The engagement took place on an Island called Bozcada, while Fergus’ parents and Gulsen’s mother were visiting on holidays. He popped the question on a private balcony to their room before going to celebrate with their parents late into the evening.”

Gülşen wore the ‘Serafina’ gown by designer Maggie Sottero “I found the dress I liked by trying on a bunch of dresses at a number of Melbourne stores; from South Yarra to Sydney Road and all around the CBD too. I first had a little bit of a look on my own then pretty soon enlisted a couple of friends to come with me at different times. I looked at a pretty big range of dresses. I wanted something that I could wear all day and night and that I wouldn’t need to change out of for ‘the dance’ for example. Once I found the dress I liked. I looked for the best price for the dress online and had it sent to me.

Once it arrived I worked with the charming Gabrilelle Dosser –  Gab added a string of pearls to the back of my dress along the shoulder to make sure the dress (which has a low front and back) didn’t slip from my shoulders (esp for the dance) and she also added two bustle options one outside for a graceful drape and one under which was more sturdy for dancing and running around. She also added two soft ‘floating’ bra cups to give a little shape and extra cover and altered the dress length. Gab offered me some veil options which were beautiful, but in the ended I decided not to wear a veil.”

The bride, with the help of friends styled the floral arrangements for the day, the bride’s father creating cones filled with rose petals the night before.

The day was truly a handmade affair, starting with ensuring the orchard was in perfect shape for the wedding day. Gülşen noting, “We spent two weekends in the wintertime with a large group of friends and family pruning the orchard to get it looking good for the wedding (and so that it produces more fruit and is generally cared for).”  In the lead up to the day the couple planted flowers along the driveway and washed old terracotta pots to plant blooms in to decorate the ceremony area and made two arches to mark the entrances to the ceremony and to the orchard reception.

The couple met before the ceremony and entered together.

Kimba Griffiths performed the ceremony and Gülşen and Fergus wrote their own vows, Gülşen explaining, “It’s not for everyone, but writing your own vows can be amazing, so I am going to recommend it. The ceremony was a jewel and beating heart of everything about the wedding. When I would get overwhelmed at the production schedule in the lead up to the wedding – and even now, if I get caught up in the details of this and that when looking back, I just have to recall the ceremony and the meaning we put into it and any anxiety drops away.”

Edward Willoughby at Leos Fine Foods created  a “cheese”wedding cake topped with edible flowers. Gülşen telling, “We chose the cheese for the cake which meant we had a lot of fun tasting cheeses at home before we had made up our minds. Good food, good wine and good music were most important. ”

Even the seating had its handmade touch, the bride telling, “An old tree was cut down on the property before the wedding and so Fergus and his brother and friends cut the wood into sections and created the stump seats for the ceremony, covered with op shop brought cushions and curtain material and nailed in so that they look like mushrooms. And also made some wooded coffee tables from the wood pieces and discs and we put three of them in the ‘smoking area’ at the reception.”

Gülşen tells, “For us marriage is about the social announcement to our nearest and dearest that we have decided to hang out together for the rest of our days. It is really a celebration of that and the vows that we have made to each other. It’s about celebrating love!”

Gülşen and Fergus handmade and organised so many of the details themselves – from buying and stringing fairy lights, borrowing table cloths and napkins, sourcing cushions, votives and fabric from op shops to style their day – the groom even made the dance floor.

Their family pitched in too – a friend’s mother made homemade cordial, Fergus’ brother built a sink frame for the washing up area, Gülşen’s mother and sister made napkins, friends lent glassware and pots and helped organise the favors.

Guests received handmade pottery cups by local artist Juliet Widows as favors adorned with tags that said “For You” written by friends and family the night before the wedding. Tables were adorned with potted succulents arranged by the bride and her friends in second hand tea cups sourced from op shops. Guests enjoyed dinner catered by Digging for Fire BBQ Kitchen.

“Fergus built the wooded dance floor with a couple of friends using palates and a bunch of material he purchased from Bunnings. He’s very clever.”

Gülşen remembers one of the funnier stories of the lead up to the wedding. “Two days before our wedding day my dad flew into Melbourne from Istanbul where he currently lives. He told me a few days before we has due to arrive that his flight got in to Melbourne at 2am. If I was to pick him up it would be a 1.30min drive to get there, then there’s the parking, the waiting, the driving back home, the catching up… We would be up from 12am till 5am for sure. I was also suffering a bit of a cold and needed rest so pulling an ‘all nighter’ wasn’t really an option for multiple reasons. So dad obligingly said he would check into a airport hotel and I said I would pick him up at 10am or similar. I went to bed and turned my phone off.

In the morning I turned to Fergus and he said I wonder how your dad is going and I turned on my phone. Then I saw this message from dad. “Hi honey its 5.30am and could not get a room at the airport hotels nor in downtown. I am in Dandenong right now with taxi looking for a motel and no luck as they are all closed till 7am so making friends with cab driver and waiting for something to open ha ha I don’t believe this honey”. I felt terrible! Dad didn’t even have our address. He just thought that we lived near Dandenong (we actually live in the Dandenongs but it sounds similar right?). Dad thought it was a great adventure though. He is so amazing. I called him and gave him our address and in 20mins or so he’s at our place was here with a big smile on his dial.”

The bride’s favourite parts of the day? “Fergus’ vows and the ceremony for me was the most amazing part of the day but additionally, our dance, and everyone else’s dancing was very fun which is really also a great credit to the band! Also, some of our friends (the ones who stayed really late) created a circle around us and sang to us before we all went to bed – that was also very special… so much special, the list goes on…”

Lucy & Pat’s French Picnic Style Wedding

Lucy & Pat

Lucy and Pat chose the incredible sandstone building of the NSW Writers Centre as the backdrop for their French Picnic style wedding. After the ceremony in the gardens, guests feasted on a spectacular grazing table under the setting sun before dancing the night away! Weeligoh Photography captured all the joy and romance of the day.

“We actually met on our first day of high school, and were really good friends the whole way through school. But it wasn’t until our last day of year 12, when he realised we wouldn’t be seeing each other every day that Pat took the plunge and asked me out. And we ended up getting married exactly 7 years from that day!”

Lucy chose a gown by Felicitas Bridal and paired it with pale blue ballet flats from Witchery. She remembers, “I had a full tulle dress with a layer of sparkly tulle peeking through, so I shimmered in the sunlight. It’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen, and certainly got a lot of compliments on the day!”

On choosing the NSW Writers Centre  as their wedding venue, Pat tells, “It was really important to us that our guests had no lag time between the ceremony and reception, so we decided to use the same venue for both. As soon as we walked through the stone doorway into the grounds of the NSW Writers’ Centre in Rozelle it felt like a secret garden, and we knew immediately that this was where we wanted to get married.”  Lucy adding, “It was also great to have access to both the grounds and the Centre itself, so we had an inbuilt wet-weather plan!”

For her walk down the aisle, Lucy chose, “Welcome Home by Radical Face. It’s just a beautiful song that gives us shivers every time we listen to it.”

Jessykah Miles at Milestone & Co performed the marriage ceremony. Lucy notes, “We loved our amazing vendors! They really worked so hard to listen to us, and what we wanted, and to turn that into a reality. We could never have done it without them!”

Pat tells one of the funnier memories of the day. “As we were rejoining the crowd after signing the marriage certificate, Lucy suddenly looked at me, terrified, and started whacking me with her flowers. It turned out that I had a spider crawling up my shirt, so she wasn’t just hitting me for no apparent reason!” Lucy explaining, “For some reason my dress was some kind of haven for insects, so there are a lot of photos of me and an army of helpers rifling through the 13 layers of tulle picking out sneaky flies!”

Lucy remembers, “One of my bridesmaids even flew out from NZ a week before the wedding to be our full-time extra pair of hands, calmer-downer, and cook!”

Of their photographer, Lucy remembers, “I’d been secretly reading Polka Dot Bride for a few months before we got engaged, and so as soon as we were engaged I knew where to look for our vendors! A few months later you featured an engagement shoot Weeli had done, and it was love at first sight! His photos were full of colour and light and smiles, and that was exactly what we wanted. Pat: He was so brilliant to work with, we couldn’t have asked for anyone better. He came up with great ideas, but made sure that we were always in charge and comfortable with every photo. On the day, it felt like having another friend there (who happened to have a camera, and take amazing photos!), and true to his word, he stayed right until the last person left the dance floor. We can’t recommend him highly enough!”

The bouquets and bridal party flowers were arranged by Gemma Mehta (0452447462), the bride noting “The flowers were a pretty amazing feature. They were the only decoration we had, so after two 4:30am trips to the flower market our house was bursting with beautiful poppies and ranunculus that we arranged in jars that we’d had everyone we knew collecting for the past year! They really brought colour and life to the day.”

“We had giant pick up sticks and giant jenga for the (big) kids, and a photobooth with photos of our grandparents on their wedding days as the backdrop.”

french picnic style wedding0061

Lucy remembers, “It was really important to both of us for the whole wedding to be true to us, so there were personal touches everywhere. My mum is a stylist, so she had a hand in just about every aspect of the day, and was really able to bring all of my muddled ideas into beautiful reality. We were going for a vintage French picnic kind of vibe, so had picnic blankets, and a spectacular grazing table put together by the amazing Violets and Vinegar team.”

french picnic style wedding0066

Lucy tells “We made our own photobooth, did a lot of the flower buying/arranging ourselves, made the favours, and really the biggest job was coordinating the whole thing. Because we booked a venue that doesn’t offer package deals, we had to source and coordinate all of our own vendors – a tricky task, but one that I think was the key to the day being as perfect as it was.”

Pat remembers, “It really did take a village to pull the day off, and none of it would have been possible if we didn’t have all those people helping us make it all happen.”

Lucy loved, “Having so many of our friends and family involved in so many different aspects of the planning and setup. That really meant the world to us. Being able to look around and see everyone we love with us (and for once not needing to check my phone every 5 minutes, because everyone important was already there!”

Of their first dance, Lucy remembers, “We were pretty adamant not to have a traditional ‘first dance’, because we’re not very traditional, and neither was our wedding. So I think our first dance ended up being to Pharrell Williams’ ‘Happy’ with some very enthusiastic family members!” Pat adding “I think my uncle actually had the first dance!”
