I have recently had the pleasure to be the celebrant at some beautiful local homes and gardens that have been lovingly and creatively decorated for that very special day.
It always is a delight to walk into a garden or home that has been prepared by the couple and their friends and families, the many creative touches are inspirational.
It brings a certain special ambience to the wedding when the couple have put their own thoughts and touches to the décor and a certain respect, sense of community and depth of meaning for the family home, to create such memorable events within its walls and grounds.
From the hand made cushions that adorn the top of hay bale seats and are special gifts to the guests, lovingly made by the bride; ……. to the hearts and flowers that hang from the tree under which the ceremony takes place ……. the candles in jars wrapped with ribbons ……. the photo book from the couples overseas holidays and other such adventures, ……. to the hand made place markers ……. Bouquets of flowers picked fresh from the garden ……. Guest comment and blessings book covered in shells or pressed flowers as mementos from special places……. to being greeted by the family dogs all dressed in bows and finery for the occasion…….
So many wonderful ideas to bring a wedding home to the family. Especially lovely when family and friends have all taken part and have prepared the wedding feast for days in advance. If this is not an option, we are lucky on the Sunshine Coast that we have so many wonderful caterers who will come to your event with great food and waiters to make it very special.
There are always marquees and seats to hire ready to be assembled in your garden and decorated by you for the wet weather option.
All in all, a great way to have your wedding at your own home or one of the many lovely properties to hire in our beautiful hinterland.
