Please find your seat, table 1, the bride and groom exit. - Inglewood Estate.

Some brides keep it simple with one vase and some colour, others hire a decorator to design a complete rustic picnic in the park, some stress about over-sized table ornaments with fairy lights, while others ask all their neighbours for hydrangeas of every colour imaginable, some spend every weekend scouring op shops for old ceramic teapots and others line the tables with an abundance of exquisite flowers that are low key, expensive and very beautiful. Michelle, I guess, must have spent every evening for months rubber stamping, printing, cutting, gluing, sawing, staining, pine cone collecting and pegging photos and paper details all over jars, pieces of wood and chicken wire - how delightful.

Amanda and Sam - 'Tying the Knot' - Two Ton Max, North Melbourne

A bunch of reasons why Amanda and Sam's wedding was cool -

It was personal ... Amanda designed the amazing 'mix and match' table, entrance and ceremony settings at Two Ton Max - Sam did help (a lot) with the set up and clean up ... Amanda designs professionally, email me if you want to contact her ... We decided to shoot the 'first look' in Spotswood where the couple live at iconic local locations ... The event was a great big mix of family and friends young and old - I don't know why some couples exclude children ... The day avoided being precious and was inclusive, beautiful and truly relaxed ... The keyboard player rocked, everyone goes for a guitarist, but keyboards are funky if the musician can play ... There was an abundance of cold drinks, food and sweets (not lollies folks) petit gateaux ... and introducing DJ Vince Peach, a Melbourne 'soul guru', need I say more.
