Tell us a little about your day…
OMA gosh it was the best day of our lives. Cyclone Oma was not going to stop us, we wanted our day to reflect us as a couple and it did just that. We chose Osteria to hold our special day, we fell in love with the ceremony garden area, the fairy lights and the fact it was Italian food! Annie from Celebrate Lady Love was beyond amazing, she delivered a ceremony that had everyone shedding a tear to laughing all at the same time. Our reception involved speeches from our loved ones and a quick feed so we could spend the rest of the night on the dance floor.
What was your fave part or moment from your day?
From the minute I woke up on the day to the minute I closed my eyes that night were moments I will never forgot. If I had to choose one it would be the moment I got to the end of the aisle and held Matt’s hands, looking around at everyone’s smiling faces that were there purely for us. Actually, I can’t just name one, the other favourite moment was walking into the reception and seeing everything that we had chosen from the balloons, flowers, table settings, cake and things on the wishing well table all come together. I was absolutely blown away at how amazing it all looked, it was better than I ever imagined.
Do you have any words of wisdom or tips for future couples?
You can get so caught up in the details of the wedding and get carried away creating someone else’s wedding you have seen. It’s so important for your day to reflect you as a couple and let your personalities shine through. Setting a realistic budget before you set out looking at venues is imperative, there is no point falling in love with a venue if it is going to set you back before you have even started your life together. The whole day is about the two of you celebrating your love with the people that mean the most to you. If all your budget allows is a tree in your backyard it doesn’t matter, there are so many vendors out there that can help create an amazing space, it’s all about the memories not the gold plated chairs and Labrador puppy party favors!
We would love to hear about your experience with Figtree Wedding Photography
We honestly couldn’t fault our experience with Figtree, Dan was an absolute pleasure to work with and made the whole experience seamless and enjoyable! From our first phone call leading up to the day to on the day we wouldn’t change anything. Looking through the end product we are just blown away with the quality and detail in every single photo taken, we could not recommend them enough!
