REAL WEDDING: Hannah & Brett, Ravensbourne QLD

As any wedding professional would attest too, outdoor receptions are some of the most beautiful occasions but also as equally risky. Which is why when I met Hannah and Brett and they mentioned they wanted to take the risk โ€“ I couldnโ€™t believe our luck in the opportunity to be involved. Not only were the couple daring in their style but also their short list of locations took us to some beautiful and undiscovered parts of Toowoombaโ€™s outskirts.

Thankfully the day was a beautiful one with the sun shining, allowing for a crystal clear view for guests down to the Lockyer Valley. We set the open air reception for over 120 guests upon a patch of lush green grass, with an abundance of festoon lights overhead. Raw timber trestles with French bistro chairs retained the outdoor, relaxed feel of the day. Surrounding seating areas with both high and low bars adjoined the formalities to the dancefloor area where guests danced the night away under the stars.

Blush pink and deep red florals complemented the warmth of the setting, with unstructured arrangements scattered throughout the eclectic tablescape. Grey chargers paired back perfectly with the floral patterned stationery suite while masses of pillar candles completed the captivating scenery.

This one was something special for our team and has since gone down in our favourites collection. Thank you again to Mr and Mrs Castle for entrusting us every step of the way and of course for the being the lovely, daring folk you are โ€“ A x
