A bubble tea station, a suit jacket lined with photos of their beloved pet, and a not-so-traditional guest book requiring a sketch per attendee – these were just some of the quirky moments we loved about Ash & JD’s bush park wedding in Melbourne. Styled to perfection by I Do Planning, their Currawong Bush setup was stunning and shot beautifully thanks to Na Lia Weddings.
Currawong Bush Ceremony
Wanting their I Dos to be relaxed and unique with some colour contrast, Ash and JD knew Currawong Bush Park would be the perfect setting to get creative, while being convenient for family and friends. “We had a lot of space for our guests and Rosie from I Do Planning made it look magical,” shares Ash. “She even helped us decorate the path leading to the ceremony area with stories about the two of us which I thought was pretty special.” A few other cool touches: stickers with the hashtag #WuFanClan created by Ash’s friend for their bubble tea station (a space well-received by guests!), and that stunning arc by Tremella Botanicals decorated with ‘cloud-like’ smoke bush.
Na Lia Weddings Photography & High Up Films Videography
Ash had nothing but great things to say about videographer Pia. “When I booked Pia (High Up Films) she had no portfolio, but I could tell she’s got so much potential from looking at one of the videos she took for friends,” shares Ash. As for photographer Shar from Na Lia Weddings, Ash says she was “So great and so accommodating with so many wonderful ideas which made the photos super fun!”
Currawong Bush Reception
Ash & JD’s reception was all about good food (Chinese bbq feast), good music (thanks Michael from Mercury DJ Hire) and drinks! The couple tells us it was important for their reception to feel like a big party, and from photos, we’re confident Ash, JD and their guests teared up the dance floor! On a final, sentimental note, Ash & JD also had their guests leave a face sketch and signature as a way of remembering those who witnessed the special day – how cool is that?
