Chic Cargo Hall Wedding029

Jessica & Grant

The gorgeous chic Cargo Hall wedding of Jessica and Grant has all the classic wedding details – a beautiful gown, beautiful blooms, a magical ceremony. But what really made it shine was that extra added sparkle – and I’m not just talking about Jessica’s gorgeous choice in bridesmaid gowns! Jessica and Grant chose photographer Sabine Legrand to capture their day.

On how they came to be, Jessica remembers, “We met on the dancefloor at the Vineyard in St Kilda!”

Jessica notes, “One of the best things about our wedding were our vendors. They were all phenomenal. They honestly made the day and the lead up so enjoyable! The venue and their amazing event coordinator (Sarah), our celebrant (Dannielle Binaisse ), our florist (Flowersmith Flowers), our photographer (Sabine Legrand ) and our hair stylist (Tania, my maid of honour’s mother!) and make up artist (Amy Kenny ) in particular were such a pleasure to work with. They all just cared so much, nothing was a problem and they really added all the extra touches to the day that made it perfect.”

Jessica chose an elegant gown from Raffaele Ciuca, noting, “It was simple, elegant and I felt amazing in it. I loved the experience going shopping with Mum and my bridesmaids, we definitely didn’t take it too seriously and just had fun.”

Jessica and Grant chose Cargo Hall for their wedding, remarking, “Cargo Hall was the most perfect choice of a venue. We wanted the ceremony and reception to all be in the one place, and we loved the space as it accommodated one of our absolute must’s for the reception – to have long banquet style seating. It felt like a big family gathering! Being in the CBD made it easy for everyone to get there and being on the river and having the sunset in view was also huge plus! The venue was phenomenal, we couldn’t fault it!”

For her walk down the aisle, the bride chose, “Wings by Birdy. We both love her as an artist and her first album reminds us a lot of when we first started dating as we listened to it all the time. It’s a beautiful song as it talks about being alongside someone for the rest of your life which was really fitting for a wedding!”

Dannielle Binaisse performed the ceremony, of which Jessica tells, “The ceremony was pretty relaxed and informal, we just wanted to acknowledge our love and relationship in front of everyone! We had one beautiful reading that our close friend Alana read for us, it’s an excerpt from Kiersten White’s novel – ‘The Chaos of Stars’.”

I didn’t fall in love with you I walked into love with you,

With my eyes wide open, Choosing to take Every step along the way.

I do believe in fate and destiny,

To do the things That we’d choose anyway.

And I’d choose you, In a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, In any version of reality,

I’d find you and I’d choose you.”

“It was just the most perfect day, everything flowed and exceeded every expectation. The weather was beautiful, we had all of our favourite people in one room, the venue were exceptional in terms of all the little things they did to make our day perfect and the sparkler send off was a beautiful, fun way to finish off an amazing night.”

Of their photographer, Jessica remembers, “Our photographer was awesome. It was one of the vendors we spent the most time searching on and Sabine was phenomenal. We didn’t want overly posed shots, or to take away heaps of time for photos (I originally told her I wanted all of our bridal shots done in 15 minutes!) and she really suited our style. The candid, natural shots she captured were amazing! She also had a great artistic eye and suggested some really fun shots. She was so good that she’s been rebooked by some of my friends since!”

“We just wanted the day to reflect our personalities and it to feel ‘real’, we didn’t want to include particular traditions just because we felt we should. We loved having the banquet style seating as it made it feel like a big family get together.”

Of the first dance, which had an added surprise from Rutherford Entertainment, Jessica remembers, “We thought about doing a choreographed first dance, but it wasn’t really our style – so we chose Jubel by Klingande. It was a popular song at the time and it got the dancefloor going – primarily due to the awesome saxophone solo that the song is known for, which our live sax player came out and surprised everyone with!”
