With the 29th of October being a significant date for Kylie and Steve, they were set on holding their wedding on this date even though it was a Thursday. They only wanted a small wedding of around 20 close family and friends so figured that a weekday wedding would be lovely!
Kylie was able to access flowers from the garden for her and her daughter’s bouquets and to style the gazebo.
For their bouquets, she chose pink peonies and aquilegia, complemented by peris japonica and dusty miller. The resulting bouquets were simple yet very elegant.
For the gazebo decorations, there was one lineal arrangement and one right angle arrangement made up of Eucalyptus and Camilla foliage, pink peonies, more peris japonica and with a highlight of blue larkspur, which looked stunning.
Leading up to the day was raining and windy, so wet weather contingencies were put in place to ensure the bridal party and guests stayed dry.
On the day, whilst it rained early in the morning, by ceremony time it was dry, and proceedings went ahead without any further rain.
Kylie’s big extravagance for the wedding was to hire a harpist, with the most gorgeous wooden harp, for the day. She played to entertain guests before the ceremony, then played all the music for the ceremony and then relocated to continue playing during the lunch.
A personal touch from Steve was to make his own drinks trolley which complemented the lunch space styling beautifully.
The caterers did an amazing job setting up and styling the grazing table, drinks trolley and the drinks and dessert tables.
They also provided monogrammed cookies and jars of candy as favors for the guests.
It was the most perfect day with everyone enjoying the celebrations and the bride and groom very pleased with how the day went off.
We wish Steve and Kylie all the best for their future together.
