We first met Rhianna and Jay in late 2019. They were very organised and had everything booked in for an October 2021 wedding. Obviously, the corona virus had other plans and even though we were officially out of lockdown, serve restrictions still made it difficult to hold any kind of celebration, so the hard decision was made to postpone to 2022.

They had to coordinate with their reception venue and their other vendors and finished up with the 12 November being the new date.

Rhianna and Jay wanted more than 24 chairs we offer in our package, so opted to hire in 40 Tiffany chairs for their ceremony. These looked fabulous in the rose garden with its green lawn and hedges and the first of the roses blooming.

They engaged Emily from Two Wild Hearts to do the styling and florals for the day. Emily did a magnificent job designing the arbour installation with a mix of fresh and dried elements. The arrangement consisted of predominantly white, cream and blush roses beautiful, stunning white phalaenopsis orchids and white delphiniums with just a touch of salmon in the chrysanthemums. The combination was just beautiful. At the entrance to the aisle more there were more floral installations and bowls of petal cones for the guests to throw at the conclusion of the ceremony.

With thunderstorms predicted at the ceremony scheduled time, everyone was a little anxious to get the proceedings done. The bride was on time which allowed the ceremony to be completed before the rain started.

The bride wore a stunning long white dress and her bouquet was made up of cream and blush roses with a centerpiece of phalaenopsis orchid and white amaranthus. She was accompanied by six bridesmaids all in blush dresses and carrying smaller versions of the bride’s bouquets.

After  the ceremony the guests moved onto the Robertson Public House and Kitchen. The bride and groom and their bridal party spent some time in the garden getting photos taken before joining their guests to continue their celebrations.

We wish Rhianna and Jay all the best for their future together and appreciate being able to be part of their wedding day.
