It doesn’t take much to get our hearts racing – anything to do with a wedding usually does the trick, but we are head-over-heels for Chance and Jessica’s heart-achingly beautiful Darlington Estate affair. Perth-based photographer Teneil Kable was on hand to capture the elegance and her stunning snaps speak for themselves.
The WA natives attended the same school, a few years apart but didn’t properly cross paths until some years later when Chance (Bateman, of Hawthorn fame) was back home on a break from football season. The rest, as they say, is history! Of their wedding, Jessica says “We wanted it to be a classic style, sit down type of wedding but also be a representation of us, so not too formal.”
With Kristy of Flights of Fancy onboard, Chance and Jessica’s styling was spot-on and the rustic vibe of their venue suited the theme perfectly. Every surface was adorned with lush flowers and foliage – think deconstructed arrangements, pretty votives and hanging botanic installations, the incredible handiwork of Rebecca Grace of Natural Art Flowers. According to Jess, her rep for out-of-this-world floristry precedes her. “We received so many compliments on the flowers,” she shares. “When the bouquets arrived in the morning I was blown away. A lot of people said to me that she was the best in the business and I truly think she is.”
