White floral arrangements, milky white carpet and pale benches were all the essential elements required to fulfil Michael and Nicola’s vision regarding the most exquisite event of their lives – celebrating their love union! The Tuscan vibes of the vineyard provided the setting in which they have always imagined themselves exchanging their heartfelt vows. Their photographer Cass from Blossom Daisy Creative depicted the iconic celebration in a simple yet elegant manner, creating a visual memory that is bound to be cherished forever.
Spring-Inspired Attire With a Sophisticated Touch
Silk and vineyards are widely known for offering a sensual and irresistible combination. So, it is no wonder that Nicola decided on a breathtaking silk bridal gown in combination with a pair of stunning Jimmy Choos. Her awe-inspiring custom-made dress by Elissa Marie Design gracefully hugged her body and split in the middle. The nimble shoulder bell sleeves were a nice addition to the whole appearance, along with the lovely earrings from Christie Nicolaides. Furthermore, the bride wore a long veil that lightly fell down along the length of her body, and opted for an elegant low-bun hairstyle done by Charlotte Treacy at Rokk Ebony. This helped her achieve the refined elegant appearance she originally strived for!
Michael’s custom-made MJ Bale suit came in a captivating navy colour combined with a blue tie and white shirt. Both the bride and the groom carefully picked their attires to allowed them to effortlessly fuse in with the alluring ambience of the venue.
A Tuscan Styled Ceremony
Michael and Nicola always knew they wanted to say their “I do’s” and exchange their bespoke JGS Jewellers rings in a winery setting. They wished to naturally achieve elegance, and the celebrant Emma Tomlinson executed their ceremony perfectly. When it came to the final decision for an immaculate venue that would allow for all of their fantasies to be turned into reality, the process was everything but easy. The bride and the groom were quite limited regarding the guest number, but luckily, they found the Lancemore Lindenderry Winery, and as they say, “it was love at first sight”.
The lovely couple decided on an all-white setting “with the beautiful green backdrop of Lindenderry’s vines, trees, and rolling hills” because they opted for simplicity. White benches were positioned right next to the selection of vines, allowing the guests to experience the wedding in a unique manner. The overall decor comprised white floral arrangements that masterfully elevated the ambience. To get a more accurate picture of this otherworldly scenery, feel free to rely on the couples words, “think gorgeous Tuscan vibes”, and you will certainly get the idea.
Indoor Reception at Lancemore Lindenderry
A chic and elegant reception followed the divine ceremony in the indoor area of the winery! They stayed honest with their vision, so the white decor was included in this part of the wedding as well. However, the theme and decorations were undoubtedly taken to the next level, clearly indicating that this is the principal point of the event.
The white floral arrangements were positioned all over the venue. They added an elegant touch to the theme and definitely attracted the guests’ undivided attention. Nicola and Michael picked Poppy Culture as their florist and the tender blossoms picked for the decor matched all other details perfectly.
The reception included six long banquet tables ornamented with white napery and white florals. The whole arrangement was utterly delicate and intimate, despite the fact that they had 150 guests at their celebration. The reception consisted of a 3-course dinner followed by a lot of dancing. This is the part where Nicola and Michael realised they had made their dream come true!
Another important element that guests enjoyed tremendously was the disposable cameras set on every table. The couple said they opted for this authentic idea so that “our guests could take amazing photos of the night” and receive unique memories of their big day. It goes without saying that they ended up with some fun photographs to look at and relieve their wedding from other perspectives. Amazing, right?
Sophisticated Music by Melbourne Entertainment Co
The whole dancing experience would not have been possible if Nicola and Michael had not selected such a brilliant entertainment company. Melbourne Entertainment Co provided a spectacular DJ and sax player, playing music for everyone’s taste. This combination also matched the ambience, meaning that everything worked in sync.
Words of Advice
Even though many people link the wedding planning process with loads of stress, this is often a misconception, according to Nicola and Michael. They believe that everything is about the impeccable organisation of the suppliers. The high-quality professionals are generally booked way in advance, so you will need to plan ahead. According to Nicola and Michael, couples should “enjoy the ride; organising a wedding is just as much fun as the day itself”!
