REAL WEDDING: Meg & Mitch, Lake Moogerah

We are strong advocates for hosting weddings in locations that are truly special to our couples – such a deep-rooted connection can never be surpassed. Which is why when Meg and Mitch first contacted us and said they wanted to host their big day at their families ski-house at Lake Moogerah, we were thrilled.

The adventure didn’t stop at their choice of venue, as the couple looked to host their very own 'Wedstival' overlooking the lake – the perfect reflection of the couples personality as well as their love for adventure, nature and a damn good time!

Letting the natural beauty of the location do the talking, a combination of timber and metal high bars, barrels, lower lying seating areas, campfires and trestle tables ensured the guests could enjoy the view of the glistening lake as the sunset.

And of course, what would a 'Wedstival' be without an abundance of festoon lights overhead.

The drink masters from Gathering Events topped off the day with their gorgeous vintage caravan, plus festoon lights overhead and a full length antipasti table – guests were treated to some delicious delights both of the liquid and edible varieties.

Native blooms in a combination of rustic jugs and jars were the perfect compliment to the free spirited aesthetic of the day, were the couple of course enjoyed a newlywed boat ride on the lake post ceremony for ol’ times sake!
