Jacob & Hayley’s shearing shed wedding reception was held on 18th March 2017.  We are interested in our couples and to get to know them a little better we like to get them to complete a questionnaire.  Here is Jacob & Hayley’s which tells us a bit about the couple, how they met and their future plans.

Q. When and how did you meet? And what were your first thoughts?
A. We were introduced almost twelve years ago through mutual friends & we hit it off!
We met at the Montrose Football Club. Jake’s first thoughts were “Gee whiz, she’s alright!” Hayley’s first thoughts were “What a top bloke!”
Our friendship grew & so did our love for each other. After six years of friendship we started dating & have never looked back.
Q. When and how did the proposal take place and how did you feel?
A. Jake proposed on the 22nd of May 2016. We were camping on the Murrindindi river for Hayley’s 30th birthday. After breakfast we went for a short walk from the campsite down to the river where Jake held my hands & got down on one knee & asked me to marry him. I couldn’t say yes fast enough & before I knew it we were engaged! It was the most amazing day. Jake was nervous & relieved. For Hayley it felt surreal – a dream come true. We were both so excited & felt completely content! Jake hand carved my ring box out of red gun. It is just beautiful!

A. Hawaii
Q. What are your future plans together (e.g. buying a house/starting a family)
A. We’d like to travel, raise a family & live closer to the beach.

Clifftop Phillip Island Wedding – Clint & Emma

Clint and Emma held their Clifftop Phillip Island Wedding on Saturday 4th March 2017.  Below is a little about the couple, how they met and their future plans together:

When and how did you meet? And what were your first thoughts?
First met when Emma was working at Clint’s son, William’s, school. Emma gave Clint her number to offer help as a babysitter as Will had mentioned to her that Clint was working a lot. Clint rang and asked Emma to come to the Melbourne Show with him and the kids, as he couldn’t leave Ella alone while he took Will on rides etc. They had a great day together, thinking each other was really fun but thought nothing more due to the age gap. Over the next couple of weeks Clint invited Emma to more and more things and they quickly realized that there was something there.

When and how did the proposal take place and how did you feel?
Clint proposed to Emma at Torquay.  He had spent months having the ring made and then Emma fell pregnant so he postponed the proposal until their planned trip to Torquay.  It was their first year travelling there to watch the Bells Beach RipCurl Pro. Clint asked Emma to go for a walk on the beach at sunset but as Emma was 4 months pregnant with Lakey and very sick, she didn’t feel like a walk and had a whinge about it. Clint was nearly not going to worry about it but Emma got up and said ‘alright, let’s go then’ at the last minute. Clint was very romantic about it and Emma cried with happiness. It was such a beautiful night and they spent all weekend feeling loved up and excited for all the things to come.

Where are you going on your honeymoon?
New Zealand, touring the Island’s in a Camper Van to get the most out of all the sights to see.

What are your future plans together (e.g. buying a house/starting a family)
Clint and Emma have already bought a house together and have started a family. They have planned to start the renovation on their house this year, build Emma’s career and expand the family business. There are also the plans to head away on their honeymoon and spend time with each other and the kids. Expanding the family is also a future plan depending on how long the renovation takes!

Where is your ceremony and reception being held and why did you choose these venues?
The reception and ceremony were held at Clifftop on the cliffs of Smith Beach at Phillip Island. It was exactly what Clint and Emma wanted without realizing it. As soon as they walked in they couldn’t picture anywhere else to get married.

What does your wedding dress look like? Please give a detailed description and also include any accessories including jewellery and shoes.
The wedding dress is a strapless, ivory, A-Line gown with a lace overlay, corset/lace up back and train. Emma wore no jewellery and sandals so she would be as comfortable as possible for the big day!

Do you have a Theme or style to your wedding? And if so, what is it?
No theme or style. The venue and view of the ocean was enough! Everything else would have been over the top and would have taken away from the day itself. So just the view of the ocean as the theme and whatever Clifftop normally used for weddings as the style.

Hair & Makeup – please describe what your hair and makeup is like and who the suppliers are.
Clint and Emma wanted to use all local suppliers so Emma and The Bridal Party all had their makeup and hair done at Beachside Hair and Beauty in San Remo. Everything was low key, just curled hair and Australian native flower crowns and minimal, natural make up.

Who is the person conducting your service? (celebrant, minister, priest etc).
Pam Lewis, of Phillip Island was used as the celebrant as she came highly recommended.

Florist – what are your flowers like & who is the supplier?
Flowers of Phillip Island was used for the flowers. All flowers were a of a slightly deconstructed look made with all Australian Natives.

Wedding Favours & Cake – what are they like and who is the supplier?
The wedding favours were hand-potted succulents grown by Clint and Emma from cuttings and potted into little pots found from local op-shops.

The cake was made by Emma’s Aunt who is a professional cake maker. It was pale blue with a native flower wreath placed on the front that was similar to the Bridal Party’s flower crowns. It was three tiers, Chocolate Mud on the bottom, Red Velvet in the middle and Banana on top. Yum!

Transport – what mode of transport did you choose and who was the supplier?
Clint and Emma stayed at Clifftop all weekend, so no transport was needed!

Food & Drink – what are they like and who is the supplier if not venue?
Prior’s Catering provided the food, which was a roaming cocktail affair. Mini burgers, calamari, duck crepes, arancini balls etc. Churro’s with chocolate sauce were the dessert as well as the bottom layer of the cake. The drinks were all recommended by Clifftop, including a local beer from the Island.

Is there any other supplier you would specifically like to mention:
Everyone at Clifftop were amazing! It was the most perfect place to get married! We will be going there every year for our anniversary!

RACV Resort Inverloch Wedding – Rob & Rosa

Rob & Rosa tide the knot at their RACV Resort Inverloch Wedding on the 25th February 2017.  So we can get to know our couples a little better, we like to ask them about how they met, their plans for their wedding day and their future together.  Below are Rob & Rosa’s responses:
Q. When and how did you meet? And what were your first thoughts?

A. Rosa’s friend’s boyfriend was friends with Rob and while Rob was in America Rosa was stalking him on Facebook. No wonder his face looked familiar when she and her girlfriend saw him while they were shopping at Chadstone one day! Rosa asked her friend who he was and told her she was interested in him. Rosa, from a distance, had caught Rob’s eye too, he thought to himself “What a hottie!” Funny enough Rob saw Rosa’s friend within the next few days and he also told her that he was very keen to talk to or about? Rosa. When they saw one another at Chadstone they were not introduced and didn’t even speak to each other but Rob did then add Rosa as his friend on Facebook! Rosa’s first thoughts were that Rob was “Pretty alright!” He was different but oh so cute.It wasn’t an easy first date, Rosa needed some encouragement, so much so that she made several phone calls to her sister from the Knox City car park before she would even get out of her car! Get out of the car she finally did and met Rob at The Coffee Club. He was already lining up to order when she arrived, so she had no choice but to approach him. All the while feeling sweaty and nervous. She found that Rob had a calming presence and she felt instantly at ease. Rob offered to buy Rosa a coffee but she had to tell him that she didn’t drink coffee. He then admitted he wasn’t a coffee drinker either, strange place for a first date then huh but obviously it was a match made in heaven! Rob told me that it made him like Rosa immediately and they chatted away like they had known one another for years.

Q. When and how did the proposal take place and how did you feel?
A. On a holiday in Bali over Easter last year on a warm afternoon Rosa and Rob had been swimming in the pool, having some beers and generally enjoying themselves with the family. Rob suggested they head for the Potato Head Beach Club to watch the sunset before they set out for dinner at Motel Mexicola in Seminyak. Whilst Rosa was showering in preparation for their outing, Rob raced acrossed to Pina and Carmelo’s room to grab the ring they had been hiding and to ask if he could take Rosa’s hand in marriage. They arrived at Potato Head. They weren’t there very long when Rob insisted they go downstairs to the beach. They were almost on the sand when Rosa said, “I’m not going on the sand, I don’t want to get sand in my shoes!” Finally, Rosa agreed and as she stepped on the sand Rob asked Rosa to be his wife in front of both of their families and about 300 strangers too. Rosa felt that everything froze around her and doesn’t actually remember saying yes. All she remembers saying is “Hug me” and “Are you serious?” Obviously Rob was serious or we wouldn’t be here today and obviously Rosa said yes in some way for exactly the same reason.

Q. Where are you going on your honeymoon?
A. Bali first and then Los Cabos in Mexico.
Q. What are your future plans together (e.g. buying a house/starting a family)

island bay ranch wedding – Nathan & Emma

Nathan & Emma’s island bay ranch wedding was held on 18th February 2017.  We like to get to know our brides and grooms a little better by asking them a few questions.  Here are Emma & Nathan’s answers about how they met, their wedding day and their planned future together.

Q. When and how did you meet? And what were your first thoughts?
A. We first met, unofficially, at the Westernport Hotel San Remo in November 2011. Emma was working behind the bar and Nathan was a regular patron. Neither of us had spoken a word to each other this night, although our interest in each other had not gone unnoticed

 

Q. When and how did the proposal take place and how did you feel?
A. Nathan proposed in June 2015 when we were holidaying through Africa. On our way there we first stopped over in Mauritius for 2 weeks. Our first week was spent staying with family, from Emma’s side, and our second week we made our way up North to stay in a beautiful resort on Pereybere beach. During one of our nights there Nathan had booked for us to dine on the resorts private beach with music, a bonfire and beautiful local cuisine. We ate until we could barely breathe before taking a stroll down the beach where Nathan, very shakily, dropped to one knee.

 

Q. Where are you going on your honeymoon?
A. We have booked our honeymoon in Hawaii. We start our trip up on the North coast, at Turtle Bay before relaxing in Maui for a few nights and ending our trip in Waikiki. We have a few places in mind to visit but hope to spend most of our time relaxing and enjoying some much needed time off

 

Q. What are your future plans together (e.g. buying a house/starting a family)
A. We are planning to finish renovating our home in Cape Paterson before either buying another investment home or settling into our current home for a few more years. We have enjoyed our journey with our current property and are very proud of what we have achieved together so far. Our hope is to continue saving so we can eventually build our dream home, with a big backyard for our fur babies to run around and plenty of room to raise a family.

 

Q. Where is your ceremony and reception being held and why did you choose these venues?
A. We chose to hold our ceremony and reception at Island Bay Ranch, as it suited what we were both looking for. Nathan always hoped for a venue with water views and Emma was after an open and natural setting amongst the countryside. We both fell in love with our venue from the moment we pulled into the carpark, through to the beautiful native gardens and the backdrop of surrounding water and rolling countryside. We could see a lot of potential at our venue and knew it wouldn’t take a lot of decoration to provide the perfect setting for our wedding

 

Q. What does your wedding dress look like? Please give a detailed description and also include any accessories including jewellery and shoes.
A. Emma will be wearing a full length ivory gown which is well fitted from the bust to below the waist and begins to flare out from above the knees. It is covered in an intricate lace pattern with off the shoulder lace sleeves. The gown shows a nice backless design with a long, elegant lace train. She will be wearing a veil for the ceremony, Chrysalini pearl earrings and is opting for comfort with her shoes, having purchased white peep toe wedges.

 

Q. Do you have a Theme or style to your wedding? And if so, what is it?
A. We were after a vintage/rustic theme, trying to show off our venue in its natural beauty.

 

Q. Hair & Makeup – please describe what your hair and makeup is like and who the suppliers are.
A. Jess Purtle (McCurdy) will be doing all of the girls make up. Keeping it very simple and true to ourselves. Hair will be styled by Emma Jean event hair. I have chosen a high bun for myself and more intricate, loose flowing buns for my bridesmaids

 

Q. Who is the person conducting your service? (celebrant, minister, priest etc).
A. Our chosen celebrant, Carmel Monaghan, was a very easy choice for Nathan and myself. Nathan has known Carmel for 15 years, after growing up next door to her and her husband in Cape Paterson. She is a very dear friend to the Jones family, known by mum mum through the local community and very easy to converse with and be ourselves. We felt very comfortable having Carmel conduct our service and were so pleased with her level of professionalism alongside the beautiful ceremony she had prepared for us

 

Q. Florist – what are your flowers like & who is the supplier?
A. The bridal bouquet, bridesmaids flowers and arbor floral arrangements had all been prepared by Emma at Big Twig Florist. The bridal bouquet is made up of soft pink, peach and white roses, baby’s breath and native greenery. The bridesmaids and arbor arrangement are created with white roses and baby’s breath. Nathan’s brothers partner, Elise, has also provided us with dozens of native arrangements which she had cleverly crafted on her own the afternoon before our wedding

 

Q. Wedding Favours & Cake – what are they like and who is the supplier?
A. We chose to do a lolly buffet for our wedding favours and had our family friend, Trevor Foon, personalise some thank you cards for us. Nathan’s parents had also sneakily organised some personalised stubby holders for our guests and our wedding cake was carefully hand crafted by the brides mum, Terra Plumb. We had a 4 tier wedding cake with a chocolate layer, coconut cake and 2 fruit cakes. 2 of the cakes had a floral like design at the base, which was hand made with icing as well as 30 intricately made roses of white, peach and pink, were used to tie in with the bridal bouquet and add a touch of colour to our cake.

 

Q. Transport – what mode of transport did you choose and who was the supplier?
A. Seeing as we stayed at the venue for the weekend, the bridal party were already at the venue for the beginning of the ceremony and Emma and her dad Steve arrived via the helicopter service which was located across from Churchill Road. Neither of us had been in a helicopter before, so it was nice being able to admire the breathtaking water views before circling our venue from above, and seeing all of our guests eagerly waiting and staring from below, before we descended

 

Q. Food & Drink – what are they like and who is the supplier if not venue?
A. Our bar will be run by friends of ours with a selection of beer, wine, punch and slushies. We will also have a variety of hot and cold tapas being run around for starters. For our mains we have hired Paella Pan to cook a traditional paella and risotto for our guests as well as utilising our local butcher Greame Finlay, who will slow roast lamb and pork to go alongside a large variety of salads. For dessert we have a selection of wedding cake, crème caramel, sticky date puddings, pavlova and cheesecake.

 

Q. Is there any other supplier you would specifically like to mention:
A. We would like to say a special thank you to Maria from Marias bridal for all her patience and effort put into the alterations of my bridal gown.  Our talented musician Darxy Fox for entertaining us into the late ours of the night and we would also like to further thank Max Combridge for his long hours in capturing video footage of our day and Lucas, our photographer, for doing an outstanding job at putting up with such a large bridal party and making our photo session something very comfortable, natural and enjoyable for us all.  We felt very relaxed and at ease around Lucas and Max and are so thankful for all of the hours they both put in to capture our special day.

Phillip Island Winery Wedding – John & Kristen

John & Kristen’s Phillip Island Winery Wedding was held on 11th February 2017. Below are a few questions we like to ask our couples so we can get to know them a little better.

Q. When and how did you meet? And what were your first thoughts?
A. We meet on the 3rd of January 2009 at a friend’s house, we shared many close friends but strangely had never meant until this night. John actually thought on first meeting me that i could do with another drink because i was so quiet. I thought John was a bit loud but also a bit cute.
Q. When and how did the proposal take place and how did you feel?
A. The proposal took place the morning after John’s grandma’s 80th birthday party. The 80th was held where John’s mother had grown up and also where his parents married in Moulamein. The following morning, they went down to the old pier before heading for home. This was almost a non-event as they had a 6 hour drive ahead of them and i really just wanted to hit the road but John did finally convince me to go down there with him. John said “Now that you have met the whole family, do you think you can cope with them all?” As i was thinking, “Well yeah I’ve been with you for over 6 years, I think I know what I’m in for,” John pulled out the engagement ring. I was in total shock but it didn’t stop me from snatching the ring out of John’s hands. In fact, i don’t even remember saying yes until prompting from John later in the day.
Q. Where are you going on your honeymoon?
A. Unfortunately we are not going on a honeymoon straight after our wedding, however we are planning a big trip to Europe in June this year.
Q. What are your future plans together?
A. After our big trip to Europe we are planning to move back to Victoria, possibly buying another house and definitely ready to start having a family of our own.
Q. Where is your ceremony and reception being held and why did you choose these venues?
A. We chose Phillip Island Winery for our ceremony and reception. We wanted a venue to cater for both our ceremony and reception, have an outdoor area with a relaxed feel, upon viewing the winery and meeting with Sierra, who is just wonderful to deal with we booked it in.
Q. What does your wedding dress look like? Please give a detailed description and also include any accessories including jewellery and shoes.
