Jordan & Kyle's Country Style Soire at Aravina Estate
Interview with the Bride
We got engaged in the August 2015 and wanted a quick engagment, so we spent 8 months planning. We didn't set a budget as such, but used our common sense when booking suppliers. I think our wedding would have been around $30,000. We had 71 guests in total.
For our Bridesmaids we did up a gift box with a dressing gown, candle, chocolates and pewter wine flute to use on the wedding day, and for the Groomsmen we a got a leather belt and pewter mugs.
I adored my dress, especially the lace detail. The back of my dress was amazing - I didnt want to take it off.
I started in looking October, because I couldnt wait. It took 6 months to be made once I ordered it.
Kyle wore a blue/ grey suit with a white shirt and dark blue bow tie.
We just loved Aravina Estate as everything was in the one spot, so that nobody had to drive from the ceremony to the reception, and Aravina is just beautiful. Everything flowed perfectly. I'm a very organised person, so I arrived at the ceremony ahead of time. One of my bestfriends sang and played guitar as I walked down the isle and as we signed our Wedding Certificate.
I'm not at all sure about the flowers I had in my bouquet, as I left that up to Naandi at Mable and Grace. She is amazing to work with.
Our overall theme/style for our day was 'natural' as I'm not a glitzy person My dad cut woods ring that sat in the middle of the table then Naandi put the vases of flowers on them.
As an amazing surprise for everyone, Kyle announced to our guests in his speech that we were expecting our first baby. Our guests couldn't believe it! It was such a perfect time to tell our family and friends.
We wouldn't change anything about our day . . . it was the best day ever. Oh actually, maybe organised a ride back to our hotel. Our DJ took us home in his single cab ute as we couldnt get a taxi, was definitly a car ride we wont forget ha ha.
We went to Seminyak for our Honeymoon. It was just perfect.
And we were so chuffed with our photographers . . . Ros and Steve are great to work with. The camera wasn't ever in our faces, which we loved. Can't recommend these guys enough.
