Gorgeous couple Tim and Kel tied the knot in a beautiful pool deck ceremony recently, followed by a cocktail style reception. Enjoy their beautiful photos.
Family and friends waited for the bride to arrive with a birds eye view from the balcony. There was a great atmosphere in the lobby when the bride entered to cheering and clapping from her loved ones.
Celebrant Tarnya Bennett married the couple on the pool deck with fantastic hinterland views.
The beach makes a wonderful backdrop to some romantic images of the newlyweds.
Cala lillies were the brides choice for classic looking bouquet and centre pieces on the cocktail tables.
We wish Kel and Tim the very best in their life together and Mr and Mrs. Congratulations!
Well, it was a perfect May Day and the Wedding of Kelly and Tim went off without a hitch!
Delicious Haigh’s Chocolates were the wedding favour for the guests to enjoy. Great idea to match the colour theme with ribbon.
The guests were entertained playing Jenga and could also write a personal message to the bride and groom on the blocks for a keepsake!
The bride chose stunning Calla Lilies for both her bouquet and the wedding centrepieces. What a striking arrangement by Flower en Counter.
We wish Kelly and Tim the very best in their future together as a married couple!
Jade and Julian’s recent wedding was such an amazing day, from the pool deck ceremony and beach photos to the cocktail style reception. These photos are just beautiful!
The reception room looked fantastic with a romantic pink and white theme which included the wedding cake, candy buffet, room decorations and of course, the bridal party.
We know Jade and Julian will have a wonderful life together! Congratulations to you both!
Michelle and Sean chose the most romantic day of the year for their wedding ceremony – Valentine’s Day. A perfect sunset for a perfectly beautiful wedding. Stay tuned for more pics of their lovely wedding.
Have a look at these gorgeous photos from the recent wedding of Tabitha and Luke. The lovely bride had a fabulous eye for detail and supplied so many little extras to theme the wedding.
The giant white balloons and silver tin vases with babies breath framed the aisle beautifully, tying in with the white, silver and black theme.
Tabitha had an abundance of vases with white flowers, even above the bridal party at the ceremony.
The refreshment table held the ceremony programs, iced water and cute cookies with silver glitter icing for her guests. The enormous “T&L” letters looked brilliant.
A string quartet provided entertainment for the guests and also played the bridal entrance music. Live music at the ceremony is so romantic.
The seating plan was drawn up on a blackboard at the entrance to the reception room and decorated with more flowers and the balloons.
The reception room looked lovely with the white and silver theme and the bridal party on the stage. Martini vases with white flowers were the beautiful centre pieces provided by Flower en Counter.
Table numbers were made to match the theme, as well as menus that doubled as bags for the lolly buffet.
The 2 tier wedding cake was also adorned by flowers and edible silver spots.
Such a beautiful wedding with so many original ideas by the couple. Best wishes to the new Mr and Mrs …
Choosing the right wedding date is tough: you have to coordinate with so many important family and friends’ availability, and there’s usually at least a few people in your family who have an opinion on when is best.
With Valentine’s Day coming up in just two weeks, it got me thinking about how popular the 14th of February is for proposals and weddings.
As a wedding planner, I LOVE love and all the romance that comes with it. But like any choice of wedding date, there are pros and cons to getting married on the most romantic day of the year:
Why Valentine’s Day may not be the best day to get married:
1. You’ll share your wedding anniversary with everyone else who’s celebrating their love that day.
Restaurant bookings will probably be more expensive and harder to get, and you won’t be the only one getting sent flowers at the office that day.
2. You will generally need to book your venue further in advance
Often up to two years or more in advance, to ensure you can secure this popular date.
3. Unless you also send Save The Dates to your guests well in advance, you might also find some are already booked up with other plans that day.
Maybe even at another wedding.
5. Your unmarried friends might find it harder to bring a guest along.
Being invited to a wedding AND to celebrate Valentine’s Day in one go just might be a little too much pressure for some.
6. Got any single friends (who’d rather not be)?
Valentines probably isn’t their favourite day of the year…
Why it’s great to get married on Valentine’s Day:
1. Your significant other will never forget your anniversary.
Plus, the influx of red love hearts and roses in the shops in the lead up to Valentine’s Day will always serve as a reminder that your anniversary is coming up.
4. Picking a theme / your wedding colours will be super easy.
It’s all about pink & red!
6. It’s so romantic!
What better day to celebrate your love than when you can practically smell the roses in the air already.
What do you think?
Bev and Dave had a beautiful morning for their pool deck wedding ceremony followed by a cocktail style reception with their close family and friends. Enjoy their beautiful photos by Life in Bloom …
The bride and bridesmaid’s carried beautiful tulip bouquets supplied by Flower en Counter.
Bev was ecstatic with her gorgeous and unique wedding dress that was imported especially by Strictly Bridal.
We send the charismatic newlyweds our very best wishes for their future together.

Found this fantastic post for the top 10 summer wedding ideas. Some brilliant ideas … Thanks SMP.
When you wedding blog for a living, you come across about a million and one fun ideas on a daily basis. It’s true. And with summer wedding season in official full swing, it seemed there was no better time to sit down and share some of our absolute favorites. Ideas for summer brides — or frankly, any wedding lover –to swoon. So let’s wrap up the chitty chat and get straight to the goods, shall we? Our ten top details for warm-weathered nuptials…
One. Nothing gussies up your trip down the aisle like a gorgeous pot of poppy florals. Choose a hue that works with your palette, and let these potted pretties decorate your ceremony, serve as centerpieces or even give away to guests as favors!
Two. Beat the heat with fans or umbrellas to keeps guest cool and comfy during your outdoor affair. Place one on each chair or have them waiting for guests at the entrance of your ceremony.
Three. Refreshing cocktails greeting your guests are sure to be an instant hit and a fun way to add a splash of personality to your cocktail hour. Some warm-weathered beverages that we can’t get enough of? Margaritas and scrumptious Mojitos.
Four. Set-up a shaded spot for your guests to lounge and sip on those yummy aforementioned cocktails. A small tent, umbrellas or an outdoor patio will do the trick.
Five. You know what we love? Wedding sunglasses, that’s what! Pass sunnies out to all your loved ones so they can get their summer receptioning on in style.
Six. Summer is the perfect, PERFECT time to infuse your day with color. Think bright hues and fun fabrics decorating the reception tables. Speaking of which, how amazing is this tablescape? We love that Ikat runner so much, we could marry it.
Seven. Think outside the box for wedding day details and set your sites on fruit. It runs a plenty in the summer months and let’s face it, a juicy peach used as a seating card is just that…peachy.
Eight. Go bright or go home is our summer wedding motto. Flowers are blooming and they come in many a pretty color. Have fun mixing big blooms and different hues. You can’t go wrong with pretty shades of yellow and coral.
Nine. There’s nothing like sparkling lanterns to light the dinner table. Hanging unique shape lanterns at different levels are a fun way to spice up the traditional alfresco meal.
Ten. We definitely all scream for ice cream and it goes without saying that the warmer temperatures deserve a little sweat treat cool down. For go the crudités and pass ice cream cones at the cocktail hour or better yet, serve a late night sundae bar. Your guests and their tummies will thank you.

Red and black with silver and crystal gave this cocktail event a dramatic and theatrical feel to the Grand Ballroom. I love the crystal curtains with the red uplights.
Black lycra chair covers with bright red sash and tied with a crystal bead makes adds to the sophisticated theme.
The dry bars with covered with silver satin and tied with a red satin sash, topped off with a mirror base and red tea light candles. Simple yet effective.
I love these tall silver and mirrored centre pieces. The square mirror bases reflect the red lights and the crystals and red tea lights on the table complement the theme perfectly.
