our wedding: the main event

It was 5pm. Mum, dad and I were dressed and ready to leave the cellar for the short walk around the corner to the garden.
I love this photo of me with a balloon-head.
The extremely talented and lovely Kelsey Genna made my dress. It's a customisation of her Begonia Gown, made from pure silk crêpe de Chine in a blush-pink colour. For the skirt, Kelsey hand-cut and finished loads of dreamy scalloped petals. I was so comfortable in it and happy to twirl around on demand to show off the skirt. Kelsey also made ties out of the same silk for Will and the two dads. 
Then we took off to the vineyards for some photos of just the two of us.

I knew from the time we started planning our wedding that I wanted to do the flowers. My mum has a beautiful spring garden and that was my inspiration. Joe Nati from Nati Bros. Roses was a delight to work with, finding almost every flower that I requested. My brother and sister-in-law picked the native gum leaves from their garden, and the lavender was from Will's mum's garden. Mel and her mum Barb helped me put the posies for the tables together and also let me pick some of their geraniums. It was a real family affair!
The sun was setting. There was time for a few more photos and then Tim, Kesh and the two of us (although, technically there were five of us as Kesh is having a baby!) headed back to the courtyard to enjoy time with guests before we sat down for dinner. 
One more wedding post to come! Photos: Tim Coulson
