[Phillip Island Wedding] – James & Christy

James Spottiswood and Christy Mahon were married on the 1st of September 2012 at Dalyston Chapel. Their Phillip Island Wedding continued for the reception at the Phillip Island Adventure Resort. Below is the brides description of her day and some highlight shots from the wedding.

How did you meet?

It is difficult to say how James and I met exactly…maybe in the sandpit? We went to Kindergarten together on Phillip Island. We didn’t become friends however until late high school when we shared a love of the sun and water. It wasn’t until university that we realized that we were spending more time together than most and so we made it official.
Where and how did the proposal take place?
On Christmas day at James’ home break, Berry’s Beach. This beach is rugged and beautiful and it has been apart of our relationship for as long as I can remember. James suggested a swim which was nothing out of the ordinary but he was particularly ‘awkward.’ I was in a bad mood that morning because he made me wait… turns out he was visiting my dad to ask for my hand in marriage! We sat on the beach for a little while and James held his towel close. Then he asked me to close my eyes, when I oped them I saw a beautiful ring!
Where was your wedding held?
Our ceremony took place at the Dalyston Deli (Chapel). It’s a picturesque little white church with a long drive lined with pine trees. It has high ceilings with exposed beams and timber floors, I loved it. The owners convert it into a cafe by day and restaurant on weekends. They also catered for us, providing champagne and finger food directly after the ceremony.
Pastor Craig Semple of the Phillip Island Baptist Church married us and we could not have been happier with his service. He is a friend of mine and he made everyone feel relaxed in his warm presence. Craig has a great sense of humour and spent time getting to know James and I before the service which made it more meaningful for us. The sun shone all day for the first day of Spring!
Our reception was help at the Phillip Island Adventure Resort. The staff at the Resort were incredibly helpful both during set up and on the night of the wedding. The food was amazing- not that I could eat much in my dress! The draping of the room was done by Joanne of Monsviews Weddings. She covered the ceiling and provided a chandelier as well as seat covers for 170 guests. They are a family business and lovely to deal with. It made a big difference to the ambiance of the room. Melva who frequents the Saturday market in Cowes made our cake – my ‘something blue’! Yum.
What was the style?
Vintage/ Spring- all things old, wildflowers, natural colours and mix-match outfits.
What was you favourite moment of your wedding?
Christy: Walking down the isle and seeing a sea of loving, happy, familiar faces looking back at me and James in the middle of them. And the dancing!
James: Seeing Christy walk down the isle and dancing till the lights came on-literally!
Description of the Brides dress:
My dress was second hand and I found it online at idogowns.com. I was so pleased because I was with my mum when I tried it on and it made it all seem perfect. It is an art deco style gown with a fitted, low waist and brooch just below the hip. It is strapless with a sweet heart neckline and a combination of ivory silk, white lace and beading wraps around the body. My sister and her family bought all my jewellery- she has much classier taste then I do and she spoils me!
The Honeymoon destination:
We didn’t have very long as we both had to return to work however we spent a relaxing, fun 3 nights in the heritage town of Daylesford. We stayed at The Manse in town which was absolutely gorgeous with a open fire place and hot tub. The sun shone and we enjoyed the local produce as well as markets and mineral springs.
Bridesmaids and Groomsman:
My Bridesmaids all chose their own dress to add a more personal touch. We aimed for soft, natural looking colours and they all looked beautiful. The boys hired suits from travellersapparel.com.au. They too looked impressive in their straight cut, classic suit with a vest.
James suit:
James had a suit tailored at travellersapparel.com.au.
He lost a button on the day which was mended by a nearby mother. He looked very handsome.

Hair:
Emma Taylor of Spice salon in Cowes is responsible for our lovely hair on the day. She was amazing.

Invites:
One of my best friend Nigel Rowe of SIM designs St Kilda designed our invites then we and his awesome wife Bianca spent 12 hours from 2pm until 2am making them! Fun times.

Flowers:
The creative team at Tropical Zone flowers made my bouquet and the boys button holes. They were so perfect and the girls shared so many awesome ideas I can’t thank them enough! I aimed for a rustic, colourful mix of wildflowers and natives. The bridesmaids made their own bouquets which was really fun and we didn’t finish until that day whilst getting our hair done! All the table flowers were arrange by Poss Oswin, a family friend who is gifted when it comes to flowers. The mixture of wildflowers were arranged in glass bottles and jars. The Father of the Groom hand-picked the pink magnolias for the church entrance and they looked beautiful.
How did Lens to Life Photography contribute to your day?
Jade was patient, relaxed and organized which calmed my nerves and kept me on track- much appreciated! She was creative and obliging and I didn’t even see her in the church- very sneaky! It was timed so perfectly that we were able to shoot some photos at the Kilcunda Bridge in full sunlight, then as the sun fell we headed to a rusty old heritage listed Chicory Kiln that my mum suggested- so much charm. And right on sunset we went to Berry’s Beach where James proposed and captured the sky and the surf. We could not have been happier. The time on the beach alone with James and our bridal party is actually a highlight for me.

DIY Elements:
We made seed bags as thank you gifts for guests to take home and plant, given that it was the firstly of Spring. I also had wish tags handmade from Etsy.com (a fantastic craft website), and the guests hung these from sticks in the centre of the table. I went op-shopping for doilies and table cloths to decorate the tables. The jars and bottles were collected by friends and family and some were given to me by my friend who used them in her wedding recently. All of the setting up was done by friends and family, as well as the staff at the Resort. My sister made our ring box which was engraved with our names and the date – very special!
