Amazing food was a top priority for Amy and Nick, and with its delicious spit roasts and share platters, Melbourne’s Post Office Hotel was the ideal spot. The wedding-worthy deck was another key selling point, meaning the whole day could play out under the one roof.
Pre-ceremony portraits (with Long Way Home) and a one-stop venue allowed maximum time for the pair to party with their guests. And to ensure they had plenty of time with each other, Amy and Nick opted to spend the morning getting ready together. “We wanted to keep things as relaxed as possible,” Amy tells us. “For us, this meant both families getting ready at our house together. Looking back at the photos it makes me smile to see Nick laughing with me while I get my hair and makeup done.”
After 10 years together and seeing many of their friends tie the knot, Amy admits she was getting impatient waiting for Nick to pop the question. But when he finally did, he was sure to make it romantic! Under the guise of a camping trip, he surprised Amy with a proposal on the drive down. And you probably guessed – no camping. Instead they arrived at the iconic Pole House on the Great Ocean Road, which Nick had decked out with flowers, wine and food the day prior. Taking notes, guys?
When it comes to putting together the perfect day, Amy and Nick tell us the secret’s in the suppliers. “We feel really lucky to have found such talented and relaxed suppliers. It was important to us that we felt comfortable with each of them and that we were on the same page in regards to the vision for the day. Our photographers, florist and venue were particularly amazing to work with, listening to us and adding their experience to what we were looking to achieve. The planning process was made much easier and more enjoyable due to their down to earth style.”
