Interview with the Bride

kasey gav 1

We took a year to plan our wedding day and we had 100 guests. We decided not to invite children. We set a budget of $30,000 and managed to stick to it.

The bride arranged a gift box for each of the bridesmaids and the mother of the groom and bride which contained a bottle of champagne, a bath robe a photo and a Pandora charm. 

Gav organised the bus for the guests to get to the reception and them home again at the end of the night. He also organised the alcohol, the stretch kombi, assisted with the rings and his suit.

I started looking for my wedding dress about 8 months before the big day. I was lucky enough to have both my parents and my maid of honor come shopping with me. I loved the detail in the lace and beading as well as the fit of the dress on me.

The groom and groomsmen, brothers and Dads all went to the local op shop on the morning of the wedding and purchased suits and then went for a surf in them at a local surf spot called Rabbits. It was a great way to start the day and to have a little fun.

We chose Bunkers Bay Beach for our ceremony as we both love the ocean, swimming and surfing and couldn’t have imagined a more beautiful and peaceful setting to say “I Do!”.

The ceremony was at 2pm at Bunkers Beach Bay and went for about an hour.

We went with a rustic beach theme. The bride’s Dad was really creative and a great “Bush Carpenter”. He handmade an alter for the beach as well as wooden floor mats and tee-pee style shell ornaments and a wooden door structure made from timber sourced from the Dwellingup Timber Mill.

He also made lots of wood frames that we used as chalk boards and we bought some of our plants from our garden down to set the scene. We were very lucky to have him offer to make everything specifically for our day. The alter is now a feature in our garden at home.

We incorporated quite a few special and personal touches to our Big Day, including . . . both of us wrote our own vowels; we actually wrote the whole script for the ceremony too; our uncle and aunt being the celebrants; all of the DIY elements from the FOB.

We were lucky enough to get some photos on the beach with all the guests after and then we had arranged for a bus to take them to the reception whilst the bridal party went off and had photos.

We chose Yallinup Brook for our reception because we both love the outdoors and gardening, and felt that Yallingup Brook offered a perfect modern elegance in a garden setting . . . we felt so relaxed.

The whole vibe of the evening was more of a garden party rather than a formal sitting.

The only formal part of the night was the speeches which were a laugh, there was lots of dancing and plenty of smiles.

The only advice I would offer to other brides would be to, "Just relax and enjoy it". Things will go wrong at some point but they're the bits you will look back on later and laugh about. It’s your day, just have fun with it.      

We couldn't speak more highly of Andrew from Imajica Photography. He just went with the flow and captures great moments for us.

For our honeymoon we went to stunning Mauritius for 10 nights and had an amazing time.

We used Coast to Country Weddings to research a lot and also to locate our caterer.
