Sarah & Michael
Sarah and Michael wanted their wedding day to have a rustic, country vibe, with a warm and inviting atmosphere, and to be a sweet, simple affair. Surrounded by their family and friends, and set against a warehouse backdrop with luscious foliage, pastel flowers and flickering candles, the couple’s day was exactly that. Their pretty Laurens Hall wedding was captured by Kate Collingwood.
Of her wedding dress, which was from Luci DiBella in Armadale, Sarah tells, “They designed a pleated, elegant skirt, with an Italian lace and beaded top, which I loved as it was so unique!” Her bridesmaids wore navy, draped Carla Zampatti gowns and the bride and her bridal party’s soft up-styles were created by Laura Gilham,with natural, pretty makeup by Skye Isabella.
The stunning bouquets in hues of pink and ivory, as well as the gorgeous ceremony and reception foliage and flowers, were created by the fabulous Cecilia Fox.
The dashing groom and his groomsmen wore black tailored tuxedo’s from Tom James, with crisp white shirts and finished with elegant black bow ties.
Sarah walked down the aisle with her father to “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” by Israel Kamakawiwo’Ole.
Sarah remembers their ceremony as being very short, and relaxed with lots of laughters. “We had one of my bridesmaid’s mum, Louise Potter, as our celebrant, who also married two of my closest friends, so it was very special to have her as part of our ceremony.”
“Kate Collingwood was a fabulous photographer, who captured some amazing moments throughout the day. We wanted candid and relaxed photos, as well as some formal bridal party and family photos. Kate definitely delivered! We are so happy with the photos!”
Sarah and Michael held their ceremony and reception at Laurens Hall , which was the only venue they looked at, and they loved it straight away. The couple tell, “With Sarah being from the country, we wanted to have a rustic feel for our wedding. Having our wedding at Laurens Hall made it such a special day, as it was such a unique venue.”
“We also worked with the amazing girls at Simply Georgeous who made our day very individual and bespoke. We had a copper installation hung among the recycled timber of words we say to each other often “I Keep You”. Georgie from Simply Georgeous was phenomenal, we cannot recommend their team more highly. We were so confident in what they would do, but were totally blown away by how amazing our wedding day styling was!”
Congratulations Sarah and Michael, and thank you to the lovely couple and Kate Collingwood for sharing this very sweet day with us!
