There is something charming about a winter wedding.
The bride did a wonderful job planning her big day and making it into a warm and friendly affair, with lots of handmade and vintage styling that I love.
Lorne & Hayley our videographers also joined us for the day.
Here are the photo highlights.
Jaxon went and photographed the groom getting the barber shop treatment at 'Wilsons'.
I was at 'The Salon' where the girls were getting their hair done.
The girls finished getting ready at Rydges Hotel. The flower girls were the couple's two daughters. The first photo below shows the flower girls dresses and a photo of the bride and her sister when they were little wearing the same dresses to their parents wedding.
The bride gifted necklaces that matched the bridesmaids dresses. Her three bridesmaids all work different colours.

I loved this idea. The bride had friends and family add to her flower bouquet while she walked down the aisle.
Children are always entertaining during a wedding ceremony. One of the daughter/flowergirls.
A break before the wedding party photos.
We went to various places for the wedding portraits, ending up at sulphur point just as the sun was setting.
The reception was held at the Dutch Club in Neil Hunt Park. The catering was done by the local playcentre as part of fundraising, and they did an awesome job! Another cool idea. The cake was made by Nana. The party favours were little wine goblets, and Jaxon LOVED the lolly jar.
PS. The bottom right photo shows the music bands set up, with lamp table, and framed picture with the band name. Isn't that also cool?!
We also contributed to the 'Advice' suitcase. Our wise words:
"Don't leave the milo packet open. It will go hard"
