Gemma + Nick

Set at the beautiful location of Baxter on the Mornington Peninsula lay the most gorgeous rustic barn that played the perfect host to Gemma & Nick's April wedding.

The ceremony took place in the autumnal gardens where the old homestead covered in wisteria played the perfect backdrop for their nuptials amongst the vintage mixed dinning chairs and wine barrels.

Following the ceremony, guests were invited to a cocktail area with pallet lounges, lawn games and a SANGRIA bar underneath a canopy of fairy lights. A rustic floral-embellished photo frame was also available for a fun photo opportunity for guests.

Moving into the reception space within the barn, Gemma, Nick and their guests were welcomed by a ceiling cover in glowing fairy lights with cascading birch for the most  magical dinner setting.
Tables were adorned in simple foliage garlands with mulberry linen napkins and bespoke hand-lettered name tiles for guests to take home after the evening.

Gemma and Nick, you were a delight to work with and although we had rain during the fay, we're so glad the sun came out for you just in time for your I Do's. We had an absolute ball styling your day and wish you both all the very best for a wonderful future together.

All our love, 
Lauren and the Etc. team

Amy + Gregg

Amy and Gregg; our super likeable, super laid back couple who just wanted to simply gather their loved ones for one heck of a party in an old cricket hall.

Set in their home town of Meerlieu in a century-old cricket club hall that kept dear to their hearts, we styled their chic-meets-country wedding boasting modern hues of black and white mixed with lush greenery and flowers.
The contrast between their style with the rustic timber features in the hall, paired with hints of copper detail
made the perfect mix for Meerlieu's wedding of the year.

Festoon lighting with foliage garlands suspended from the ceiling.
Timber table tops, sheer black table runners that lay gathered on the ends.
A sea of modern black, green and white floral arrangements.
x100+ hand written copper name cards.
A boho marquee wedding ceremony.
Vintage furnishings and rugs.
Amazing food, bar and tunes.
Fire pits and vintage baths filled with beer.

The perfect laid back mix for the couple to simply celebrate with their near and dear.

Amy and Gregg, you were a true delight to style for. Entrusting us to make history and seat the most people the MCG has ever seen,
and to decorate your day as you dreamed. What a magical day this was. Congratulations from Etc. x

Katie + Josh

 

What a journey we embarked on with an extraordinary couple.
We began the planning process with Katie and Josh almost 18 months out from the big day.
Concepts were designed to the very last detail when they suddenly had to change venues. Our team were there to roll up our sleeves and work on the back up plan that would wow our couple and have them even more excited for their day than ever.

After late night phone calls with strategies and action-plans, Katie and Josh were sold on the beautiful Wattle Point Retreat as their new wedding venue.
As their initial wedding concept was to be held outdoors amongst the gorgeous scenery Gippsland has to offer, we made this a high priority when re-designing their new look venue.
Capturing the beauty of all that Mother Nature as to offer and fusing those details into every touch-point of their wedding day was paramount. 

Katie's love of the colour blue elegantly danced across each detail of their wedding day. Starting with their eye-catching aisle of fresh Delphinium standing tall.
We created an aisle that appeared as though the flowers were growing right there up out of the ground. As though mother nature was deliberately paving the way for Katie to walk down to her love.

After their seaside nuptials concluded, guests were invited to the reception gardens for champagne, canapés and games amongst the banksia trees. Cocktail furnishing and pallet lounges were styled to provide a comfortable rest in-between games of coights and naughts and crosses.

The reception doors then opened and guests were invited to find their seats in preparation for the Bride and Groom's return to the party.
Bespoke signage guided guests to their designated tables as they walked into a room with a canopy of lush foliages and glowing fairy lights. The perfect elegant touch of outdoors to bring inside for the remainder of the event.
Tables adorned in blue and white blooms, silverware and flickering tea light candles. Hints of timber elements to soften the room and sentimental touches Katie and Josh's grandparents had made as decorations all played a part in celebrating these two families coming together.

Katie and Josh, we couldn't have asked for two better clients to help on such memorable day. You were a pleasure to work with. You entrusted everything in us and this truly allowed us to pull everything together so wonderfully for you on your special day. Thank you for being a dream to work with and for allowing us to be a small part in your big day.
From myself and our entire team, we congratulate you and send all our very best wishes.
Here's to you katie and Josh.

Amber + Will

Amongst the beautiful vines of one of Gippsland's finest wineries, lay a clear marquee set to greet Amber and Will's guests as this wonderful family came together for a special 'I do'.

Natural birch arbour adorned in gorgeous blooms stood proud with the vineyard playing backdrop.
A long burlap aisle scattered with rose petals to lead the way.

Champagne and canapés served upon the deck with timber bar furniture and blooms paired with tea lights to carry through the evening.

Dinner was served in the restaurant with two long feasting-style tables to keep their guests connected and socialising right throughout the evening.
Amber really wanted to capture the beautiful natural surroundings of the venue and work this into the interior styling for their wedding as this is what couple loved about the venue.
Playing tribute to the beautiful high ceilings, we designed a dinner amongst the vines with tall table centrepieces of lush foliages arranged in a flowing and whimsical style to bring  that natural outdoor element on to the guest tables.
Walking through the restaurant, you really felt like you were walking amongst the trees and the soft voile backdrop with glowing tea lights really set the ambiance for the evening ahead.
 

As this day was held dear to this family's hearts as Amber reached a true milestone to be able to walk down the aisle to her love, it was without a doubt a true pleasure to work with such a imaginative and positive couple who trusted our designs and helped amplify this as the idea-ball got rolling in our catch ups together and we learned more about their story.
Congratulations to you Amber + Will, a magnificent love story we're oh so privileged to be a part of and to have witnessed. Your strength and courage truly touched us as we embarked on this wedding journey with you both.  Thank you x

Nicole + Justin

Well, what an exciting adventure our wedding journey was with these two.
An absolute delight to work with right from the beginning.

Our planning process began 12 months out from the big day with careful consideration of every last detail
that spoke to this wonderful venue and really let all it's beauty shine.

On the morning of their wedding day, Justin and the boys enjoyed a relaxing time on their farm in rural Victoria.
whilst the girls sipped champagne at Mirror Image hair salon in preparation for the big day
with photographs to follow at the heritage Riversleigh bed and breakfast.

Guests were greeted upon arrival and welcomed to join the celebration inside the century year old stables of Pentre Grange.

The bride arrived in vintage cars and walked down a burlap aisle through vintage farm doors, lit with glowing candle light.
The entrance to the stables was styled with soft voile draping as warm fairy lights and chandeliers
lit up the charming timber ceiling creating a magical, warm and intimate setting for the nuptials. 
A bespoke alter, hand-made by the Groom himself was styled in lush foliage arrangements to frame deer antlers as the centrepiece.
On either side of the alter featured a Doe and a Deer to represent the couple
and their love for the countryside and hunting activities they enjoy.

As the knot was tied, the celebration soon began under the festoon lights outdoors
for champagne and canapés amongst hay bales and antique furnishings.

Dinner was served in the historic WoolShed.
Guests dined on long banquet tables with lush foliage garlands above with hidden tea light candles.
More candle light and antlers played a fitting centrepiece to reflect the true essence of Nicole and Justin on their wedding day.
Duart homestead catered the evening beautifully and continued tradition beautifully as Nicole's parents also wed with the Duart Homestead brand so this was gratefully important to the couple.
A timber bridal table adorned in a lush foliage garland took centre stage for the Bride and Groom to really shine.

Our team transformed the stables into an open dance floor ready for a party long into the night
and our newlyweds' first dance together as husband and wife.

This was truly a magical day.
Our team loved every moment of this special day
and tears came as we stood back and watched the happy couple wed in the gorgeous stables.
A first for this wedding venue and fitting tribute to this property as they closed their doors. An end to a wonderful wedding era.
It was an honour to conclude Pentre Grange's wedding history with such a wonderful couple and an absolutely stunning day.

Thank you to our fabulous team,
to Carol and John and the Pentre Grange team,
To Jess for capturing this day oh so beautifully. You were all an absolute dream to work with.
And lastly, to our happy couple.
You entrusted us with such an important day and we are so thrilled for you.
Our warmest wishes and Congratulations.
Cheers to Nicole + Justin! x
 

"We were more then impressed with the work the Etc. team did for us,
they kept me motivated and on task. 
They made my wedding experience truly memorable with the transformation they achieved
& the amount of time they saved me,
I couldn't imagine doing what they did myself.
They put tonnes and tonnes of work in and it truly showed!
Lauren works hard in really capturing your vision
and makes it such a personal and individual wedding.
Words really can't explain the quality of Lauren's (and teams) work!
Thank you!"

Bec + Daniel

We love the Gippsland lakes and when we were asked to style Bec & Daniel's special day right on the water in Paynesville, we couldn't resist after our first meeting. With a beautiful story to tell at a sentimental location that lay close to the hearts of this wonderful family, it was evident that this day resembled much more than a wedding day. A close-knit family celebrating the next chapter as two people came together and honoured past family members with their celebrations.
This is what weddings are about.

The gents got ready at a private residence while the ladies were primped and pampered at the Moorings in Paynesville before making their way to the ceremony at Bayview upon the water's edge in the gorgeous manicured gardens.

Guests were treated to refreshments after the ceremony before making their way to the reception at The Paynesville Cruiser Club.
The bridal party arriving in style upon a cruiser as their guests eagerly awaited upon the fairy-lit deck to cheer the newlyweds.

A reception featuring a ceiling covered in glittering fairy lights, sheer white backdrops blowing in the light sea breeze, and tables styled with tea lights and rustic floral centrepieces in lavender hues played the perfect setting to eat, drink and celebrate this amazing day with the newlyweds.

Our biggest congratulations to a couple who were so wonderful to work with. We wish you all the very best as you start this wonderful new chapter in your lives. To Bec and Daniel!

Kylie + Colin

When you come across a couple who have complete faith in letting you run wild with bold and beautiful colours; true magic is created.
We had so much fun designing this intimate gathering for Kylie & Colin full of bright colours, bold blooms and fun textures. A lovely representation of their vibrant personalities.

For Kylie and Colin we designed a simple ceremony in the gardens of Riversleigh with petals cones to shower them as they tied the knot.
A formal dinner reception was held indoors with one long guest table to encourage conversation and really bring everyone together, just like an intimate christmas dinner would feel.
Tables featured beautiful bespoke linen with lush florals sweeping around the stem of tall elegant trumpet vases and glowing golden tea lights for extra warmth & sparkle.
Guests were invited to take their seats with custom hand-made name cards with gold foiling detail, and custom raspberry lolly jars with the couple's names printed in them.

Each detail was thoroughly considered in this gorgeous design
and we absolutely loved creating a little wow factor for such a wonderful couple.

Thank you so much for letting our creativity run wild and for including us in such a special day for you.
It was our absolute pleasure to design your fabulous wedding.
Cheers to Mr & Mrs Brown!

Elyse + Mat

Set in beautiful Lakes Entrance lay a white wonderland of gorgeous scented florals
and glowing candle light.
The ultimate elegant affair for Elyse & Mathew for their March wedding.

The Bellevue was transformed with an entry lit up by candle-light and styled with fresh florals.
Indoors featured soft white ceiling draping, fairy light backdrop, and guest tables alternating in lush florals and candle centrepieces upon mirrors to reflect these chic details.
Custom hand-lettered stationary was created for each guest setting and accompanied with bespoke rock-candy favours.

The theme carried through to the Bridal table which was adorned in floral posies and candles, flowing on to the gift table; paired with bespoke signage and a garden terrarium
to hold their cards.
The bar became another feature, also styled with fresh blooms in multiple tiers
with bespoke Bar menu and tea light candles.

The Bride and her girls carried full bouquets of White mixed Roses which perfectly matched the theme throughout this stunning wedding.

Our warmest Congratulations to Elyse and Mat
on their stunning Wedding Day.
What a pleasure it has been to work with you on creating this special day
over these past months.

Tara + Seb

Wow. What a weekend!
From the moment we met with Tara, Seb we were instantly welcomed into their family
who showed us the most wonderful hospitality right throughout our journey with them.

Set on the gorgeous rural property of Tara's parents' stood a clear-span marquee
adorned in festoon lighting with foliage and bright pops of colour throughout the entire styling.

With the brief to ensure this celebration was a fun and relaxed feel, where their guests could kick back
and have a genuinely great night; we styled a reception of mixed guest tables and cocktail furnishings.
Capturing their love for the country; Wine barrels, hay bale lounges, timber details and pallet ottomans,
with a truck trailer set for the stage for their band.

Bespoke chalkboard signage and custom table runners added a touch of 'Tara & Seb' to the day
with guest favours of hand-made succulents in concrete pots from the Bride,
styled as a rustic centrepiece for the marquee layout.

Guests enjoyed local Maffra food with a dessert buffet from the Bride,
mixed punch and even dabbled in a marshmallow fight at the end!

As the three of us sat back on the hay bales and looked out to that stunning view;
we knew this night would be the most fun night for this couple and felt so excited for them
as they arrived in their big semi trailer trucks!

Thank you for your trust in us, your enthusiastic attitudes and your humble hospitality.
We felt truly welcomed and truly blessed to be a part of your special day.
Tara + Seb; Our warmest congratulations to you both!

Alanna + Morgan

In the midst of our wedding setup we were told by family & friends just how excited they were
for this day to come and how perfect these two were for each other.
As we saw during our journey with Alanna & Morgan, we couldn't have agreed more.


Set in the grounds of the gorgeous Riversleigh, an elegant fine-dining feel was created with hints of pastel
to compliment the venue's beautiful cottage gardens.


Upon guest's arrival, they were creatively directed to the front gate entrance via poetic signage & lilac lace arrows along the driveway.
Entering the foyer you couldn't help but lust over the exquisite detail of their wedding cake,
perfectly set in the light of the grand bay window.


Following through to the rear courtyard, guests were served sparkling champagne
amongst graceful bar tables adorned in pastel posies underneath a canopy of sparkling fairy lights.
The dance-floor marquee decorated to match for the couple to take their first dance as Husband & Wife.


The restaurant remained a surprise until blinds were opened and doors unlocked upon an extended invitation to dinner.
Crisp white linen & draping were used to soften the room with seasonal pastel posies in glass cloches for an elegant touch.
Glowing candles amongst the glassware made for a romantic setting on each table.

Hand-made escort cards were crafted with care and bespoke table numbers hung upon each centrepiece. 
Favors of personalised candy to thank their guests along with polished silver & pressed napkins
were all carefully styled to reflect the dainty details to make up a gorgeous cottage garden feel.

A pleasure to design & style for your special day Lan & Morgs. 
Thank you, and our biggest Congratulations to you both

Michelle + Nathan

Beautiful Riversleigh played the perfect backdrop for Michelle & Nathan to tie the knot.
The gorgeous heritage features of the building complimented the pastel florals
and timber features throughout the styling of this cocktail soiree.

A simplistic ceremony in the gardens with a arch-seat adorned in fresh blooms
framed the couple beautifully.

Pallet lounges underneath the festoon lighting, bar furnishings and vintage lounges
provided mixed seating options for a relaxed evening ahead.

Thank you for being an absolute pleasure to collaborate with Michelle & Nathan.
Our upmost congratulations to two wonderful souls.
- Etc. x            

“The Riversleigh looked just divine, so thank-you SO much Lauren.
Your ideas came together perfectly, and the wonderful staff you have
put it together and pulled it down with such ease.
So many of our guests commented on the beautiful styling, and really it is ALL thanks to you!


I was told multiple times throughout the day before, the morning of
and the day after the wedding how relaxed I was about everything.
And really, it is because I knew you all had it under control. I had complete faith and I wasn't wrong. I had the best day, without one worry at all! 

So thank-you and your team again!! We loved every minute!”

Ashlie + Josh

What a weekend! 
From the get-go, this wonderful couple were a pleasure to work with.
 

Our team had such a blast creating a magical day for Mr & Mrs Weeks in Dinner Plain. 
The relaxed atmosphere of High Plains Lodge was the perfect venue to host a cosy reception.
The glowing of fairy lights, tea light candles and the stone fire places made you feel right at home. 

We can only hope you and your guests had half as much fun as we did guys!!

Katherine + Jakob

Our story with this awesome couple began with a phone call from the other side of the country in the middle of no-where!
Katherine & Jakob reside in a very remote community over 5,000km's from us! And so our epic wedding planning adventure began.

Originally from our local area, with a love for Mother Nature in all her beauty,
we designed, styled and coordinated a lush bush wedding
with pops of bright fun colours for Katherine & Jakob.


Set amongst the beautiful scenery of JB Hut at Dinner Plain,
we created a pathway to the intimate outdoor ceremony
with confetti-filled balloons and paper-heart aisle
where nuptials were exchanged on recycled pallet stage, adorned with baby's breath blooms.


Guests were invited to dine at Hotel High Plains with a candle-lit entrance and custom signage to greet them.
Inside the restaurant gracefully suspended over the dance floor were handmade baby's breath spheres,
guest tables styled with lush foliage centrepieces, glowing candles and sprinkles of confetti.

Table numbers were painted onto recycled timber,
and guests enjoyed locally grown herbs wrapped in burlap as their thank-you.

Jakob sees himself as a bit of a golf fan so we had handwritten name cards
in golf tees on each guest favour too!


With a styled gift & cake table to reflect the remainder of the decor
and a fun Photo Booth as well as handmade info forms to keep guests entertained,
we left this wedding feeling like we wanted to stay and join the party.
So. Much. Fun!


From the moment we met this delightful couple, to our journey organising and planning every detail for their special day,
with the amusing phone calls and stories of their bush-expedictions in WA
we absolutely loved every minute of this wedding.

At a glimpse;
600+ paper hearts, 130 candles, 17 centrepieces, 90 Basil & Mint herbs, 2 bags of fresh moss,
6 baby's breath balls, 12 balloons, unlimited views and awesome memories.

Thanks so much for having us a part of such a special day for you both.
We'll miss your long distance phone calls!!

Congrats guys, from all of us at Etc xx

Charli + Steve

It's fair to say Charli & Steve's wedding was dear to our hearts.
Our very first wedding within the Etc. family!! 
Two of our talented team members tied the knot last weekend and we couldn't be more over the moon for them!

Timber signs lead guests to a private ceremony at Eastern Beach Lakes Entrance
with chairs adorned in seaside aisle decor and a Birch arbor dressed to frame the gorgeous couple.


Guests were invited to a cocktail hour at The Lakes Entrance Surf Club
with Daiquiris, Beach games, Photo booths,
and delicious canapés before moving upstairs for a formal dinner.


The Reception was styled with elegant candles & fairy lights, bespoke stationary & Signage, lush floral designs and crisp white linen
with the outside decks glowing with Festoon lights and candles in glassware.


With their love of the beach; details were incorporated to reflect them as a couple
with sea shells subtly hinted throughout, favourite candy & desserts
and tables named after Philippine Islands in custom timber Island signs
suspend over each table to pay tribute to Charlene's heritage.

We absolutely loved taking this journey with you both.
Watching ideas transform into a stunning night for a fabulous and loving couple.

Not many know, but prior to Charli & Steve joining our team they were our first ever clients.
They have ridden our crazy and creative ride with us and never had a doubt.

Here's to wonderful friendships, Incredible gratitude,
and a happy ever after to Mr & Mrs Robinson x

Paula + Chris

Styling this stunning Bemm River wedding with fabulous clients whom we didn't get the pleasure to meet in person until a week before the wedding (Paula)
and the day of set-up (Chris) just goes to prove what wonderful, relaxed and open-minded people these two are.


Paula & Chris, originally from Orbost, now reside in Port Headland WA,
so this meant detailed and accurate correspondence from the moment they engaged us,
right through to the set-up.


Our team assisted in developing Paula & Chris' style and transforming it into a seamless,
beautiful wedding at a waterfront farm in Bemm River.


With suppliers and guests from every corner of the country
attending such a great wedding full of personality, strong values, and fun
just made this spectacular day even greater.


With bespoke signage, gorgeous seasonal blooms, rustic touches with hay bales & wine barrels,
an imported beloved vintage mini wedding car, glowing marquee reception
and a sign-post as a testament to their guests who travelled far and wide for the occasion
-This is what we're all about!
A day that truly reflected this couple and made the perfect foundation for an amazing weekend with family & friends.


The celebrations continued with guests arriving on Friday and still celebrating on Sunday morning. 
We still fondly recall the smell of a spit-roast BBQ and Cold Chisel tunes pumping when we arrived for dismantle. Love it!

"We didn't have to go into depth about what we wanted. Etc. were very aware of the trends and knew exactly the style of wedding we were looking for.
Your contribution to our day was amazing and everything came together so beautifully on the day"
-Paula Kingscott

Paula & Chris; your trust, positive vibes, warm hospitality and all-round kind heartedness
is a testimony to the wonderful couple you are.

Thank you for our lunch-time sandwiches & for locating a generator when the power outage occurred on set-up day.
We wish you a lifetime of happiness and thank you for welcoming us with your family, on such a special day in your lives.

Sarah + Tim

When we met with the bride-to-be we started off with a blank canvas, the colour pink and some tricky hanging pendent lights. We loved taking this creative journey with Sarah as we evolved these ideas into a glamorous vintage wedding at the Metung Yacht Club.

We designed a custom ceiling feature of pastel ribbons and glowing fairy lights, soft white draping and hints of vintage-glam to really make this day shine for our couple. 
Putting Sarah & Tim's mark on the day with handwritten signage and personal elements made this an unforgettable weekend for them and their guests.
Congratulations to the happy couple once again!
Special thanks to our amazing team for all their sewing, tying, ironing and ladder-climbing and to Light & Type for capturing our styling.

Hayley + Hamish

Once Hayley & Hamish found their perfect location, they couldn't wait to start planning and neither could we!

Guests were invited to a weekend away through the windy roads and mountain tops to a gorgeous backdrop at Dinner Plain
to escape from the city and watch these two tie the knot!


JB Hut blanketed in snow made for a true winter wonderland feel for their cozy ceremony.
A burlap aisle with baby's breath lining the edges and a statement alter of a hand-crafted arch from their friends,
styled in fresh blooms set the mood for this intimate affair.


Fire pits and blankets to keep guests warm a bar carved out of snow to begin the fun festivities of the evening ahead, all ensured everyone was comfortable, had a drink in their hand and sharing lots of laughs.

After canapés and bubbly were served at the newly-weds' chalet,
guests were treated to a homely reception with long tables adorned in neutral floral arrangements,
crisp white linen, glowing candle light and of course some fun table-games
all underneath a canopy of fairy lights with a cozy fireplace to make guests feel comfortable and right at home.

Thank you to Hayley & Hamish for allowing us to style one of our favorite destination weddings yet, for you both.

It was an absolute pleasure to meet you, your family & friends during our wedding journey with you.
We hope your future as Mr & Mrs is as glorious as the weekend that was.

Claire + Lev

You know you have the perfect recipe for the ultimate wedding when you meet a couple like Claire & Lev.

When we first met this vibrant couple, the inspiration we received was that of a jewelery box. Rich bright tones and gorgeous intricate detailing. So with this in mind, we created a wedding where guests couldn't help but have the night of their lives.

With a combination of strong modern tones - meets elegant Victorian architecture, we created a day to truly compliment our Bride & Groom.

Under a canopy of glowing Festoon lights in the rear courtyard of the Riversleigh stood the stunning alter with asymmetric style florals and a sheer backdrop to softly float in the breeze.
Fresh blooms adorned every nook and around every corner paired with hand-dipped gold votives and fresh white linens. 
Designer scatter-cushions mixed with both contemporary & modern furnishings made or a relaxed vibe throughout the evening.
With cozy blankets around a hay-bale lounge to keep guests warm and a fabulous jazz band to keep their dancing feet happy, this cocktail wedding just oozed love and laughter throughout the day. 

From our happy memories of Claire singing in the courtyard microphone before she was whisked away for hair and makeup, to the most gorgeous page boy & flower girls peeking around corners and whispering whilst we worked our magic, and the Groom making his way down to us pre-wedding just to say thank you. You got a true sense of the bond within this family and what an honor it was to be a part of your day.

Thank you for welcoming us and building such fond memories throughout our journey together.

From myself & all our amazing team; 2 things...
1) Our upmost Congratulations to you both on a beautiful marriage!
and 2) Cutest page boy award, hands down, goes to little Atti!!

As always, I'd like to extend a personal thanks to all our outstanding team & vendors for their talents throughout Claire & Lev's wedding. Having a 1 in a million team like this, brought me to tears later that night, so thank you, truly.

Emma + Ben

With a beautiful ceremony by the water's edge on the Village Green of Metung, full of friends, family and smiles all around.
A perfect setting to exchange their vows.
An absolute delight styling a simple cocktail reception

for such a bubbly, relaxed Melbourne couple, that is, Emma and Ben.

Gorgeous Metung played the ultimate backdrop for a weekend away from the big city for these two and their loved ones.

Emma and Ben's Reception captured a relaxed feel with hints of pink and peach against the crisp white linen and glowing fairy lights and candles at The Metung Yacht Club.
Lighting played a significant role in setting the ambience for the evening with balconies adorned in fairy lights and candles to compliment indoors.

"It's hard getting married somewhere that is so far from home so it was great being able to trust someone else to organise evertything so we didn't have to stress about it.
The set up was awesome and you guys were a pleasure to work with.
You made my life so much easier and helped make our wedding day a stress-free one. 
Thank you."

Congratulations to you both. It was an absolute pleasure to get to know you
and transform the Yacht Club into a stunning reception for you to dance the night away.
Thank you for inviting us along on your wedding journey with you.
