Courtney & Todd – The Celebration

by | Australia - New South Wales, Bride, Inspired Weddings,


It’s time for Part Two of Courtney and Todd’s Blue Mountains wedding! Captured by Janine Kaye Photography, the couple had a beautiful Australian feel to their wedding.

The ceremony was held at St Peter’s Church on the Great Western Highway in Mount Victoria.

Courtney walked down the aisle to a song she’d written played by her brother and Todd’s sister. As each bridesmaid entered and walked to the top of the aisle, they joined in with their instrument. By the time Courtney walked down the aisle, she had her own mini orchestra playing!

Each of Courtney’s bridesmaids wore a wrist corsage to match the sash (made by Todd’s mother) on their gown (by Veronika Maine).

Courtney and Todd held their reception at Victoria & Albert Guesthouse, they loved the gorgeous gardens and charm of the venue and the onsite accommodation allowed guests to stay overnight.

The cake was designed by Inspired By Michelle who worked off the couple’s wedding invitation. It was decorated with fondant gumnuts and gum leaves.

Courtney and Todd

It’s Wedding Wednesday again! I’m excited to share the wedding of Courtney & Todd with you today- there are absolutely beautiful Australian touches to this celebration! Courtney and Todd married in Sydney’s Blue Mountain district.

The couple met at prestigious acting academy NIDA doing a production course and married in April,  amongst golden Autumn trees. Due to the sun setting early, Courtney and Todd decided on a first look at a lookout overlooking the Blue Mountains.

Courtney wore a gown from Spurling Bridal- her mother altered it to the shorter length and adjusted it so the bow sat nicely.

Courtney’s bouquet (from Wedding Blooms) included Australian reeds and gum leaves. The red mini roses, orange daisies and yellow orchids matched the sash on each of her three bridesmaids.

Daylesford Drinks

I love the idea of putting bottles of delicious bubbles on ice for a summer wedding.

I’ve long been a fan of the Jones Soda concept and have been quite sad that we have not been able to get the same great coloured fizzy drinks in Australia.

I have however found an Australian based soda/fizzy drink supplier who creates their own bubbles and sells it in a variety of colours!

Daylesford & Hepburn Mineral Springs Co, located in Victoria. There are a multitude of flavours- and six coloured flavours (including plain). The drinks are made and bottled in Victoria and can be shipped in cartons.
