Casey and Luke planned their wedding for a beautiful Summer’s day at Sittella Winery in the Swan Valley. The couple opted for simple styling which really allowed the stunning venue to shine.
When we met with Casey she was well aware that she was getting married at the peak of Perth’s Summer and wanted a wedding gown that was as comfy and easy to wear as it was beautiful. Casey selected our ‘Tia’ silk wedding dress (which is as light as a feather as far as wedding dresses go!) and we made some alterations to suit her such as adding a lace cap sleeve and minimising the train so it was less fuss.
Now one of my favourite things about Casey and Luke’s wedding was their decision to donate money to the McGrath Foundation instead of traditional favours. I thought this was such a great idea, I hope more couples consider this idea in the future!
– Don’t let others influence your day or let you stray from the style of wedding you want. Usually what is your first choice is always the best; trust your instinct!
– Ask suppliers for their recommendations when looking for other suppliers – they see a lot more throughout their work and can offer their experience. My florist, dress maker and cake maker had all worked together on many projects previously and it was good to hear they recommended each other.- Leave yourself plenty of time in the morning on your wedding day
– We had a 4pm reception so it meant that I had plenty of time in the morning with my bridesmaids, to have breakfast and relax for a few hoursbefore we started getting ready.
We wanted something very simple and relaxed, in a casual atmosphere with not too many formalities. We chose Sittella Winery as we could hold both the ceremony and reception in the one venue, and liked the fact that our guests wouldn’t have to travel in between. It also meant we could have our photos in the same location, while our guests had drinks & canapes served on the lawn. We joined our guests here after the photos and watched the sun set over the winery, before sitting down for dinner. Our reception decor was very simple, with hessian & lace, and simple fresh flowers. We chose to donate to the McGrath Foundation as our bonbonniere, and these pink thank you cards gave a pop of colour. We went straight into a few speeches and cut the cake, so all formalities were done by 8pm and we could enjoy the rest of the night celebrating with our family and friends!
