Erin and Mitchell were booked in at the Robertson Public House and Kitchen for their reception and were looking for a beautiful space in which to exchange their vows and get some stunning photos of their wedding day.
Once they had seen The Secret Garden, they were sold on the idea of having their ceremony and photoshoot here.
They had a little trouble deciding on where to have the ceremony with the garden in all its spring glory but a visit with their parents the day before had them choosing the Blues spruce lawn. A favourite spot in the garden for photos, this little nook is an ideal spot if you are looking for a space that feels intimate but has plenty of space for guests. With over 100 guests, they needed plenty of space and the adjacent lake and gazebo made for a perfect visa for quests to admire before taking their seats.
They both wanted a simple ceremony and opted for no embellishments, other than the garden, as a backdrop for their ceremony.
They chose to have the white wicker signing table and chairs which were just stunning set against the clipped Buxus hedge with the pale pink rhododendron and birch trees in the background.
The weather behaved itself producing a warm balmy day of 20 degrees with just a slight breeze, a bit of cloud cover and not a drop of rain in sight.
The bride wore a simple but elegant long dress with a light sleeve and short veil. Her bouquet was made up of large boisterous roses, peonies, and dahlias in pale and dark pinks.
After the ceremony and some mingling, guests set off to have cocktail hour at the Robertson Public House and Kitchen whist the bridal party stayed on to capture those beautiful portraits in the late afternoon light. Once photos were complete they joined their guests in Robertson to continue the celebrations.
As always, we wish Erin and Mitchell all the best for their future together.
The Secret Garden team.
