With hearts set on a barn wedding, the couple had no hesitation when choosing their venue, explaining “Mavis’s Kitchen incorporated all of the elements that were important to us – organic food, a great selection of wine and beer, in a relaxed country setting.”
Decorations were kept to a minimum with the bride and groom choosing a few statement pieces such as the custom neon “Mr and Mrs Porter” sign and a floral installation by The French Petal, and letting the natural features of the barn shine through. Wooden tables were adorned with simple native botanic arrangements, candles and jars of tomato chutney as gifts, made by Aaron’s parents using his Oma’s famous recipe.
When the knees-up at Mavis’s ended, guests kicked on at an after party until the wee hours. The couple share, “The day really does go so quickly and we would have been incredibly upset if our wedding ended at 11:30pm. Instead, we continued celebrating at the after party until 4:30am – with a second day of celebrations the next day. We loved this aspect of our wedding and felt like we actually had enough time to celebrate properly with everyone.”
