Kelly & Nick’s wedding

After almost two years since we first met to discuss their wedding, I was delighted to see Kelly & Nick tie the knot.  The wedding was held on a beautiful clear afternoon at the Old Rectory, a private garden in Kyneton, with family and friends from far and wide.  Kelly was a vision in dusty pink, expertly escorted down the aisle by their gorgeous Labrador, Charlie (who stole the show!).  The reception was held in the eclectic Royal George Hotel in Kyneton.  Kim Selby Photography captured Nick and Kelly’s wedding day perfectly.  I wish Kelly, Nick and their son Sam all the best (and Charlie of course!)

Beautiful romantic country wedding

Last November, I worked with Jane and Sam as a ‘day of’ wedding coordinator.  Jane, Sam and their families put so much time, effort and love into the planning, organising and the execution of the wedding day, it was breathtaking.  I spoke to Jane a number of times in the lead up to the day, recommending suppliers, and giving general advice.  My role on the day was to set up the furniture both outside the Mill and at the ceremony site, arrange the extra styling details, set up the outdoor games, help set up the ceremony backdrop, liaise with all the suppliers, set up the cake station, keep the day running on time, and troubleshoot any issues that arose. As you will see from the photos, this wedding was something very special.

Vegemite turns 90

Last week I had the honour of being the Event Manager for Vegemite’s 90th Birthday celebrations – that’s 90 years of giving Australians energy to do more of what they love, 90 years being at the heart of the Australian breakfast table and 90 years as a symbol of national pride.

There was a lot to bring together in a short time frame, but the event went off without a hitch.  Special thanks has to go to Arnie at Flowers in a Vase for her beautiful native flower bouquets and Shaz from Blackbird Cakes, who made the most fantastic birthday cake that ended up being the star of the show.

A Winters Tale

I recently styled a shoot with the very talented Kim Selby, which has been published in Australian Country Magazine (we even made the cover!).

James & Gabby’s Wedding

The beautiful James and Gabby were the most relaxed couple I have had the priviledge to work with.  Their kindness, good nature and Gabby’s infectious smile and laughter made their wedding a joy to plan with them.  The wedding was held on a chilly afternoon at the beautiful Duneira, Mt Macedon with the reception at James’ parents house in Gisborne.

Things did not entirely go to plan when James’ parent house lost power for a few hours (which included an emergency dash to get a generator by yours truely!), however the caterers, Ed Dixon Catering, were fantastic in utilizing what we had and rising to the challenge so that all the guests were fed.  Once the power returned, guests danced the night away to Colin Dodds.

It was a beautiful, relaxed wedding that really reflected the couple.  All the best, guys!
