Veronica and Russell were so much fun to work with. When I first met them what made an impression on me was Veronica’s stunning looks and infectious energy and Russell’s extremely laid back and easy-going nature. Instead of the cup of coffee I normally share with clients Veronica ordered a cocktail and I somehow knew it was going to be the beginning of something beautiful!
The venue for the wedding was just stunning. Faversham House is situated in York, a little town about an hour and half from Perth. The grand old house provided accommodation for the couple’s closest friends and family members for the weekend and a place to gather for meals, including a relaxed barbeque the evening before the wedding and a hearty breakfast the morning of the wedding. The quaint little church across the road was the perfect place for their heartfelt nuptials and I could not imagine a better setting than the front lawns of the house for a relaxed country style reception.
Veronica comes from a fairly large Papua New Guinean family, and I could tell from speaking with her and seeing her with her sisters and nieces throughout the planning process that family was very important to her. She and Russell paid special attention to involving the children of Veronica’s sisters in the day and we also set up a children’s area complete with a teepee, lawn games, piles of comfy blankets and cushions and colouring books. Veronica and Russell really wanted their wedding day to be one big, fun, relaxed party with all the people they love most, and I think this was achieved.
The clouds on the morning of the wedding looked ominous and it drizzled on and off throughout the day, but just as the ceremony started the skies cleared, allowing Veronica, Russell and their guests to party underneath the stars well into the night.
There were lots of very talented vendors involved in this day including Pretty Willow who provided all the amazing furniture, Micktric Events who did an outstanding job with the lighting design and installation, Regal Mist who created the lovely floral arrangements, La Paleta who supplied the guests with yummy icy poles, and Petite and Oh So Sweet who made the most stunning wedding cake. And let’s not forget the most beautiful wedding dress by Elvi Design! These gorgeous images were captured by the super talented Jimmy Teo of iZO Photography.
