Well hello there. So nice to see you again. I’m sorry for my absence, but you know, some things get real and some things take time. Enough said? I’m back now and raring to go with a wedding that will knock your socks off. One of the most asked questions I get is “what happens if it rains?” Most couples are terrified of rain on their wedding day because they think it will ruin the day, the photos, your dress, your hair…the list, man, is endless. But I’m here to tell you (and to show you) that a little adjustment in your attitude to the rain can make for the BEST. WEDDING. EVER. Remember your dress, hair and makeup are all really just for this one day so stop worrying about it. Those professionals you employed know all the tricks to make mascara not run, your hair not fall out and your dress not crease. Trust in them and relax. Smile guys, you’re getting married!!! You may want to rethink your footwear for a portion of the day (high heels in muddy grass, not so cool) but other than that nothing you have planned has to change. The thing about rain is that it brings the clouds a little lower and diffuses the light to a lovely soft glow. No one looks bad in rainy light, just ask the Parisians who bask in that rain looking all chic and stylish and so bloody Frenchy! It is like a massive diffuser for the sun and that is like the world’s best beauty lamp. Not to mention those dramatic clouds!!! Man oh man, don’t get me started! So with this in mind I give you Matt and Dimity – a wedding in the rain that didn’t let it ruin on their parade!
The stunning flowers for the day were by the always amazing Green and Bloom. Roberta does the most spectacular floral arrangements I’ve ever seen.
See what I mean about Green and Bloom? These are stunning – so lush and fresh. Wait till you see the hanging canopy over the bridal table – stunning!!!
Dimity used Lydia from Peacocks and Lilies Image Styling for her makeup and Erin from Sugar Hair for her hair. As you can see these professionals know exactly how to deal with rainy weather – Dimity looked stunning all day! Her beautiful wedding dress was by local designers Bertossi Brides at Paddington Weddings.
Situated in the heart of Mount Pleasant is this lovely little stone church, Henzell’s Chapel. It’s like something out of a fairytale isn’t it?
Each of the bridesmaids’ dresses were made with a different floral fabric and complimented the stunning springtime feel of the day. They were designed and created by Ann Coy in fabric from the Fabric Collection.
I love the quirkiness of Nina’s work from Blackboard Artworx. She is such a pleasure to work with and really does such an amazing job. All of the blackboards are hand drawn by her and bespoke for every occasion.
An amazing cloud of spring flowers over the bridal table.
The catering was done by Dalton Hospitality who also supplied the trestle tables. The on the day styling was by Jodie and Alon from Maximilian and Jake Events.
Dimity and Matt’s reception was held at Samsonvale Hall. The beauty of a venue like this is you can create anything you want in the space and you can hire your own caterers and bring your own wine!
The music that got this party started (and cranking) well into the night was Cut-a-rug!
