Rebecca And Alastair first contacted us in the beginning of their wedding planning process with amazing ideas.....and only a slight problem. They new what they were after (which we LOVE in our clients) and what they wanted to do - they just weren't exactly close by to get it all done. You see, these two lovebirds have a gorgeous life set up for themselves in Canada......so a local bellarine peninsula wedding was going to be a hard one to plan, when you lived 14,500 kms away!!!! We chatted via Skype and phone and i absolutely fell in love with these two. They had a gorgeous banter about them as a couple - with so much love going around, and a beautiful and personal way they wanted to create for their wedding day - we were so glad they came to us for help!
And so - we set off to find a venue that was still intimate for their 80 guests, yet had room for lawn games, beer tubs, a Pavlova Bar and a pre-requist from the bride???? A baby animal farm... any animal - she wasn't picky.....but did say piglets were her favourite!!
And so - raven's Creek Farm in Moriac was an obvious choice for us, and once we sent them a Skype video of the place - they feel in love from afar too!!!
Alastair grew up in the geelong area, so for me, utilising local vendors, produce and suppliers was key to creating a personal and community-enriched gathering for those who were travelling and those who were home.
It was a gorgeous late spring afternoon, the sun was shining, poppies were in full bloom and absolutely gorgeous!!!! and Alastair's car, that was painstakingly restored over the last 4 yrs, got up and running JUST in time for their guests to be treated to a very vibrant arrival!!!!
There were lots of laughs and love at their wedding celebration - a few debates regarding the bocce winner, and a pavlova dessert bar so out of this world you had to see (and taste) to believe!!!
Rebecca + Alastair were such a gorgeous couple to get to know over the process of their wedding planning - we couldn't have been more excited for them to become husband and wife!
