“Brendan was awesome!!!! He kept the vibe getting ready very chilled and relaxed (even with a red belly black snake in the garden of the girls house they were getting ready at) and was with us every step of the day. We couldnt be happier with our photos!” – Lucy + Luke
Tell us a little about your day…
We were blessed with the most perfect day. We couldn’t ask for anything more, the weather was amazing and everyone had a smile on their face. Our reception and ceremony was held at Lucys parents property in Gleniffer NSW. We always wanted to have it there as Lucy’s parents were married there also 41 years ago, but thought it was wise to see what venues had to offer. For us, nothing really compared and it only took us seeing one other to realise we had everything we wanted right under our noses. As Lucys’ father had passed away a few years ago, having it on the property ensured he was with us every step of the day and it was such a blessing to host our closest family and friends at our home. We did our best to involve our family and friends as much as possible and had Luke’s aunty officiate the ceremony and a close friend sing our first dance. We still have friends telling us it was one of the best weddings they have been to and that makes all the stress and time put in worth while.
What was your fave part or moment from your day?
The whole day! Its hard to pick our a few! Of course the ceremony was beautiful, showing up and having 115 of our closest there to celebrate with us and realising they had taken the time to travel (majority are from Sydney) was the best feeling. I think for both of us the speeches were also such a highlight everyone that spoke absolutely nailed it and we were so happy (and emotional!!!) We also cannot recommend our band enough – they owned the dance floor and kept our guests entertained until the wee hours of the morning.
Do you have any words of wisdom or tips for future couples?
Dont sweat the small stuff! On the lead up you think everyone will analyse every small little detail but on the day you are having such a good time you don’t even notice! (and if people are going to complain they really shouldn’t be there) 🙂
