Over anything else Shae and Callum wanted their wedding to be enjoyable for their guests. They had a rustic vintage theme and an outdoor wedding at Chandeliers on Abbey in Yallingup Western Australia.
“From the start our biggest priority was making sure that whatever we did, we created a relaxed atmosphere”, explained the bride. “To us this meant an outdoor ceremony and reception (in the same spot to avoid having to leave) cocktail food, couches and plenty of drinks (including shots instead of champagne for the speeches!) We wanted to try and pay as much attention to the little details as we did the big details and as much DIY as (sanely) possible. Of course we couldn’t have pulled it off without the help of wedding blogs and Pinterest!! ”
“Everything went great for most of the day but WE RAN OUT OF ALCOHOL BY 6:30PM!! The venue was BYO alcohol so we arranged drinks through a local bottle shop that caters for weddings and when going through numbers prior to the day I was assured by them that with the amount ordered we would have leftover… About 6:15pm rolled around (about an hour after the ceremony finishing) and my Mum came to let me know that we had just about run out!!! Luckily enough the venue coordinator was able to go and collect more before anyone really noticed! A big contributor to this was that we wanted the bar to be open when guests arrived at 3:30pm. It was important to us that everyone was relaxed and mingling with a drink (if they wanted one) while waiting for the ceremony to start!”
