I knew the minute I met with Nadeen that I would love working with her. She was, sweet, charming and knew what she did and didn’t want (one of my fave traits in a bride).
Dan and Nadeen live in Wollongong, where Dan plays for the St George Illawarra Dragons, and Nadeen runs a fab little beauty salon (Backstage Tan & Beauty for those on the lookout for a new Beauty Therapist) *plug intended.
They both wanted a little getaway for their nuptials, so The Hunter Valley was chosen as their wedding destination.
I do a lot of outdoor ceremonies, but there is something special about a Church wedding. Dan and Nadeen were married at St Patricks of Nulkabaa. It’s a quaint little country church just outside of Cessnock.
After a beautiful Ceremony the new Mr & Mrs and their 140 + loved ones headed to the Tempus Two winery for their reception.
The Barrel Room is such a gorgeous venue. Nadeen has a classic style, and I designed her wedding to reflect that. We had alternate tablescapes of florals and candlelight and it all worked in beautifully with the space.
A particularly memorable moment was the Bridal Party’s entrance into the reception, where Dan’s Best Man and the couples daughter came in to a choreographed dance. It was adorable and hilarious.
The Barrel Room put on a great spread and after dessert guests were treated to a fab Candy Bar, completely put together by the Bride. Not just a pretty face, this gal!
The couple danced their first dance to Angel by Jack Johnson, under a canopy of fairy lights. It was magical to say the least.
I always say that you can tell if your wedding was enjoyed by your guests by the amount of people who hit the dance floor. It was safe to say that Dan and Nadeen put on a VERY fun wedding for their loved ones.
Whilst it was a huge weekend for me, being Planner, Stylist and Florist, I had the most wonderful time working with Dan and Nadeen, and the rest of the team of vendors getting cozy inside my big diesel engine car. The Hunt Wedding surely was amazing, and one I won’t forget! xo
