Catlin and Jackson were living in Goulburn at the time they decided to get married. Whilst they had plenty of guests coming from there they also had guests traveling from Sydney and Wollongong, so the Southern Highlands seems like a nice central point in which to host their big day.

Having secured their reception at the Robertson Public House they then started looking for somewhere private to say their “I dos” and have photos taken. Which led them to The Secret Garden, just 10 minutes away.

As is often the case in April, mother nature gifted them with the most spectacular Autumn day with plenty of sunshine and just enough cloud cover to make the light perfect for photography.

Catlin had her florist create a beautiful, dried arrangement to place on the entrance to the gazebo. This along with our vintage desk and chairs set the scene for a gorgeous ceremony space.

Cole Studios, with two photographers and their drone, captured some truly magical images of the ceremony, and portraits of the couple and their guests.

The Bridal Party arrived in style in two vintage jaguars.

The combination of fresh and dried flowers in the bride’s and bridesmaids bouquet tied in with the gazebo installation and looked stunning against the bride’s dress and the pale pink of the bridesmaids dresses

Catlin and her dad walked down The Cherry Blossom Walk to emerge at our Gazebo to a waiting groom and guests to complete the formalities. Afterwards, the bride and groom hosted their guest at a fabulous reception at the Robertson Public House.

As always, we wish Catlin and Jackson all the best for their future together.
