What started as a case of mistaken identity has transformed into this gorgeous electric wedding. When Bianca accidentally embraced Toby, thinking he was her friend, she had no idea she was embracing the love of her life. After finding out they had many of the same interests and the same passion for life, they were both goners.

On a weekend trip away to the south of Tasmania, the couple were returning to their accommodation to grab the supplies for an afternoon picnic in a field of daffodils nearby. Toby got down on one knee and popped the question like a true gentleman – and the rest was history!

Their stunning wedding at Glendale Estate was captured by Clint and Bethanie Photography. Bianca stated that “they were amazing and went above and beyond for us.”

As a qualified florist, Bianca made all of the wedding bouquets and styled the reception florals. The bouquets were a beautiful mix of white and pink roses, mushroom-coloured hydrangeas and Queen Annes Lace.

Bianca wore a stunning Made with Love Bridal gown that she had altered for her 5-month baby bump. The floral detailing on the bodice and skirt perfectly complimented the ceremony venue and bouquets. In her wedding party, Bianca had her best friend, her two sisters and her three daughters. They all wore beautiful dusty rose-coloured gowns.

Toby wore a custom brown suit from Routleys Menswear for the ceremony, with a light blue shirt and brown bowtie. His wedding party wore similar attire but with a white shirt instead of blue.

His favourite memory from the day was “Being surrounded by friends and family, and then seeing my daughters and wife with our unborn child walking down the aisle.”

Bianca walked down the aisle to “Feels Like Home” by Theo Tams.

The ceremony was led by their celebrant, Ray Young, who guided the couple through the personal vows and a reading of the Apache Wedding Blessing from Toby’s close friend. It was a special moment for Bianca and Toby as they signed their marriage certificate because they both had their mums as witnesses’.

After the ceremony, Bianca and Toby left with their photographer to take their first photos as a married couple. “Straight after the ceremony, Toby and I had a few moments together living in the moment and these were captured beautifully by our photographer. When I look at the photos I can feel the emotion so vividly.”

While the couple had their photos taken, the rest of the guests moved to the reception venue, which Bianca had styled and decorated herself. The florals here were a stark contrast to the bouquets, going from a soft look to the gorgeous burnt orange, chocolate and mushroom colours of the African-inspired arrangements inside the barn.

The whole wedding took place at the Glendale Estate, but while the ceremony took place in the vineyards, the reception was inside The Orchard Shed. The winery property is located in Sidmouth, Tasmania, surrounded by rustic bush and beautiful vineyards.

It was at this point of the event that Toby and his wedding party had a quick outfit change before the reception – switching into their colourful African wedding attire.

For their first dance, Bianca and Toby waltzed to “Biblical” by Callum Scott, inviting their wedding party to join them. After that, the vibe switched into an electric current – with the Afro beats taking over the night and allowing everyone to dance the night away.

The couple hired Hubert and Dan to cater all the food for their guests to enjoy, and no one was left disappointed (or hungry!) “Our guests raved for weeks after about how good the food was!”

A huge congratulations to Bianca and Toby for your electric wedding (here’s to many more years of sparks!) and thanks to Clint and Bethanie Photography for submitting and capturing the day perfectly!
