After many 'sneak previews' this season alone, I'm so pleased to finally share Hannah and Chris' Wedding Style Profile with everyone!
When i met Hannah for the very first time, she was just a newbie in Melbourne. As we got chatting (over a pizza, no less!), I learned of the adventurous spirit Chris and herself both shared, having worked and lived in a few cities across Australia in a span of just a few years. Home is wherever they are together. Where there is a park, they'll be lacing up their walking shoes. Where a bike trail, they'll be riding. Quiet comfort in each other's presence is good all the same. It was therefore befitting that they had picked Provincial Events' Wattle Park Chalet to host their intimate wedding celebration - a heritage-listed building steeped in history located amongst acres of surrounding parkland.
With Hannah and Chris travelling on multiple interstate trips leading right to the week of the Wedding Day, we communicated mostly via email and phone, exchanging ideas and inspirational images for the number of key areas One Wedding Wish was pleased to take care of. Hannah and Chris' love for all things natural, earthy and provincial set the scene for us to design something that truly reflected their special relationship.
For the entrance, we created a simple but stylish Welcome Table featuring one of our signature Wishing Trees in their gorgeous colours of lilac, purple and peach. We also placed a large white wooden birdcage for cards embellished with flowers which doubled as a display for guest seating.
The ceremony was held in the venue's private garden offering panoramic views of Wattle Park. Vibrant blooms in glass jars decorated the aisle chairs. Guests were invited to a Drinks & Treats Station designed specifically to Hannah and Chris' unique theme. Our most favourite piece has to be the vintage blue bicycle parked by the table, looking as if it has just returned from a flower-picking trip to the meadows, and on the way back, picked up some long French baguette sticks too! We couldn't resist surprising our couple with a personalised bicycle plate to keep as a momento after the wedding.
One of the treats Hannah particularly asked for were cookies. Cookie jars seemed the most obvious choice, but we decided to take it a step further by packing two cafe-style chocolate chip cookies in frosted 'envelope' bags finished with grosgrain ribbon and a fun sticker that read "I'm COOKIE for you" - all neatly displayed in an open picnic basket.
No Treat Station is complete without colour-coordinated macarons! How about lavender-infused and passionfruit-choc ones?
Hannah struck a stunning figure in her wedding gown when she arrived. Isn't she just gorgeous!? Hannah and her bridesmaids carried bouquets of David Austin roses, lisianthus and orchids, designed by our preferred partner in floral design, Flowers of Canterbury (thank you Nat and Cobi!). A very special thank you also to Sarah and Olivia for their special touch to making everything gorgeous!
Hannah and Chris, I wish you both many more adventures ahead! Lots of love, Joanie xoxo
