Amy and Jeremy – The Celebration

by | Australia - Western Australia, Bride, Inspired Weddings,


Amy and Jeremy’s reception was an absolutely beautiful affair held in a marquee at Matilda Bay Reserve.

Amy says “Because I am a bit OCD about attention to detail I couldn’t find any venues that suited the theme we wanted, I felt that we would be competing with the wall colour, carpet, lighting etc.. So Cathrin suggested a Marque wedding. Matilda Bay was perfect because having the river as a backdrop helped the wedding have a relaxed elegant feel.

Villa Kula (Vanessa/Carl) provided the Marque and everything in it. It was a massive job because we had to bring everything in, but it meant that we could choose everything that was used, down to the colour of the cushions, cutlery etc. which was really important to me.

Because Cathrin had worked with the site so many times before she had such a great understanding of what we would need and which sites were the best to hire. We actually booked out all the sits bar one so we knew the reserve would not be crowded. I never felt concerned about the set up because we had such confidence in Villa Kulla and Cathrin ( which is saying something because I can be known as a bit of a control freak)”


The reception was styled by Villa Kula with flowers by Natural Art Flowers by Rebecca Grace. The seating chart and menus were designed by Suzi of Alannah Rose Stationery.The reception was setup and styled by Villa Kula and Cathrin D’Entremont.

Amy made the table numbers using quotes from the cards the couple received from their engagement. Amy also made the wedding favors, she says “I came up with the bright idea to make homemade marmalade ( Jeremy and my father’s favourite) as the wedding favours. I bought heart shaped jars and made 30 litres of marmalade ( I will be happy if I never see marmalade again – ha ha ) I sewed bags for each jar to sit in and created tiny gift tags explaining that the marmalade was something sweet, handmade with love to say thank you for sharing our day with us. People really loved them and I think they suited the theme perfectly.”


Amy and Jeremy danced their first dance to “Stand By Me” by Ben E King. Fans of 50’s and 60’s music, the couple loved the song and danced outside under the stars lit only by a few strings of fairy lights. The sound of the river and the beautiful moon in the night sky made the moment perfect. After a few minutes, guests were invited to join the couple on the dance floor and didn’t leave all night!



It was important to Amy and Jeremy to have amazing food on the day and their guests couldn’t stop raving about the food provided by Jon and Karen from JKL Exclusive Catering (08) 9582 2409. The white rose wedding cake was created by Kakes By Karen. Amy says “”We loved the candy buffet, Cathrin’s idea, Jeremy and I are not particularly serious people so we didn’t want the wedding to be too serious so the candy bar fitted in perfectly. The florist supplied some great vases for the candy”.

    This looks amazing! I’m planning my wedding at the moment and I’m trying achieve the same relaxed vibe and I would love to know approximate costs for this (sorry if it’s too nosy!)..
