Claire and Matt wanted a wedding day that was relaxed, simple and timeless. With a naturally beautiful venue and organic styling by the bride’s own floristry business, they brought their low-key vision to life with Mavis Jean along to capture the day.
Comfort was key when it came to the venue, and having both the ceremony and reception at Tanglewood Estate allowed guests to settle in and enjoy themselves right from the get go. Apart from its stunning views of Port Philip Bay, this venue boasts possibly the loveliest little chapel we’ve ever laid eyes on. Would you believe it was actually purchased on Gumtree from a little country town and brought to its new home to be lovingly restored! The reception was held in an old winery which is now used solely as an event space. With its high ceilings, exposed beams and deck looking out to the bay over a heart-shaped dam, Claire and Matt were sold on first sight.
With the bride being one half of Flower Muse Styling Co, it goes without saying that the day was filled with beautiful blooms. Claire kept it simple and elegant with a green and white palette, and used florals to highlight the existing beauty of both the ceremony and reception spaces, hanging organic arrangements from beams and steel pillars which were created by her brother-in-law.
If you’re looking for vendor recommendations they don’t come much better than this. Claire tells us, “I honestly could not say a better word about all of our vendors – they were all such beautiful people making everything relaxed and easy and you couldn’t ask for anything more when there’s about a million and one things happening around you on the day. I can recommended all of them!”
