Kate and Chris chose a Beautiful Colonial sandstone building to take their vows as man and wife, The perfect setting for this memorable day. The building, surrounded by bushland, was built in 1873 for use by the military, but is now a beautiful tea room/restaurant overlooking Sydney Harbour.
With a venue this eye catching the couple chose to keep their colors really simple with white, green, the palest pink flowers, and black bridesmaid dresses. To make the ceremony that more special, Kate and Chris chose to have a ring warming in which their wedding bands were passed around to all their guests to be 'warmed' with their well wishes for our future together.
Other special touches for the day came from the brides own hands as she felt she really “put a piece of us” into the DIY decorations. They arranged their own flowers, bouquets, centerpieces, and even made marshmallows for their wedding favors. An even more meaningful touch was placing a framed photo from each of their parents wedding days on our guestbook table; this was very dear to them.
Kate describes the highlight of her day as watching her now husband have a cry during the vows, and being surrounded by all our friends and family as I married my high school sweetheart and best friend.” The evening reception that followed was filled with incredible speeches which the bride and groom could really feel the love in the room between everyone there.
Kate & Chris chose the ‘Rough Diamond’ Invitation for their wedding stationery.
