‘You see, giant proclamations
Are all very well
But our love is louder than words’
– Bloc Party – Sunday
I love weddings HARD and luckily running this blog I get to see quite a few of them, but this one is simply spectacular. A well planned, creative day filled with love and smiles and all things nice. Edana and Daniel, you really are lovely and thank you for sharing your beautiful day with us.
The lovebirds: Edana, 26 & Daniel Crombie, 27
Ceremony: Millthorpe Public School
Reception: Tonic (in the old Theatre next door)
Theme: Vintage Fair
The Dress: “Odette” by Lisa Gowing
Groom & wedding party attire: ASOS and Tarocash
Hair: Gavin Cochrane Hair Design
Beauty: Illume Make up and Beauty Bar
Decorations: Romantic feminine floral colours are the base or jade and gold old world accents. Some of the deco included gold vases, black and white photos of the couple with their guests, peacock feathers, blue glass antique style vases, pink paper flowers and gold sparkly table runners. Everything was light romantic with a tinge of the 1920’s
Food: The feast began with 10 different Hors d’oeuvres while photos were being taken. This led to mains of local meat and best baked potatoes! The desserts were canapés and delivered to the guests while mingling.
Cake: The cake was make by the maid of honour’s mother. The detail in peonies as the cake topper were amazing and also made of gold!
Drinks: Local champagne and ciders were offered to the guests.
Photographer: Seth Buchanan
Cars: Orange limousines
Rings: Antique Engagement Ring.
Stationary: Handmade, designed by an Etsy Seller
Music: A playlist of triple J alternatives, classics, and 80’s tunes. Foster the People, Billy idol and songs the couple had listened to for the last 10 years played all day.
Special moments: Speeches were made by the the maid of honour, the bride’s brothers, the groom’s father and the best man. They were both tear worthy and hilarious. Malcolm’s speeches had everyone in stitches- he so cleverly weaved in and disguised rude stories.
Edana says spending the day with her best friends was so much fun, it was all smiles and laughter. It was so relaxing and it’s a time that she will cherish for ever.
The bride says there was a special moment when her cousin came to see her before the wedding with her gorgeous boy (the page boy) and at the moment she realised it was happening and started to cry!
The couple were lucky to have near perfect weather at Millthorpe for the day, not too hot or cold and the wind carried the smell of the nearby flowers.
In a nice tribute to the couple their friend Matt spoke some words during the ceremony, it was a mash up between two bloc party songs.
