Hannah and Trent were married at Matilda Bay Reserve in Perth, Western Australia. They hired furniture and knick knacks from Turtle and the Pelican and Maisey Collections to furnish the outdoor space. They also borrowed lots of props from friends.
“The two biggest factors to us choosing our venue were that we were able to bring our own booze and there was no curfew which was very difficult to find in Perth”, began the bride. “A friend suggested to look at public reserve spaces and hiring a marquee. After booking Matilda Bay Reserve I felt that a marquee would look tacky and ruin my vintage look with all the dark wooden furniture items, which then lead me to find Zest Event Design who hire out tipis. I fell in love instantly but due to the price we could only get one, which was fine for a cocktail setting. The tipi looked amazing suited the vibe and was well used. We danced in the tipi till 4am in the morning!”
Annarose and Benji met when they were both dating other people (she was with his housemate!) However when those relationships ended they remained friends and got together soon after, one New Year’s Eve.
They wanted their wedding to have a slight punk vibe, but also to feel retro. “I have always been a fan of vintage fashion and style”, the bride said. “We really wanted to mix that with Benji’s deep musical roots. It really was a mixture of both of our personalities. We also wanted the wedding to feel timeless.”
“The wedding was pure happiness. There was nothing solemn or serious, it was all lighthearted and fun. It was just like a giant party with all our friends! One of the things that made it special was that we did a lot ourselves including my dress, the flowers, the music, the decor and the invitations.
Rachel and Jason didn’t want a fuss, a theme or anything to big for their Melbourne wedding. So they organised an intimate ceremony at Treasury Gardens followed by a casual reception at a cafe.
