The wedding ceremony and reception was held on a property that has been in my family for many years. When I was little my grandparents lived in the beautiful homestead, Cynisca, and I have so many wonderful memories of their time there. Both Doug and I wanted to have the wedding in a garden, Cynisca has always had a stunning view and with my Aunt Deb taking over things at the homestead since my grandparents passed we knew the garden would be brought back to its glory days in time for the wedding. And it was!
The ceremony was held in the garden as imagined and the old grass tennis court area was transformed by the Ivory Lane team into a stunning reception space.
Ivory Lane helped make our dreams a reality. We both felt strongly about having round tables, for us it was a must, we wanted our guests to be able to engage easily. Too often round tables aren't styled well and can, quite frankly, look like s**t, but Jane and her team got everything so, so right. Our colour scheme was grey, white, green, silver and wood. The colours worked so well inside the Ivory Lane tent that was lit with their hoop lighting that hung around each pole. Each hoop was adorned with foliage by Designer Bunches. Ivory Lane really are a class act. They constructed our tent layout, set up the last minute items and styling items, provided the bar staff (who make a mean Aperol spritz by the way), majority of our hire items, table seating chart print, and even packed the whole thing up- what a god send!
Thank you so much Ivory Lane- there are no words!
Designer bunches not only provided the hoop roof display foliage but also provided the table centrepieces, bouquets and button hole flowers. Jan and her team were super easy to work with particularly for someone who doesn't know a single flower type.
Thank you to both Ivory Lane and Designer Bunches for working together to give us our dream venue!
