Andrea had picked a wedding venue long before the question had even been popped. Luckily for her, Matt agreed to the agenda; with the couple exchanging their forevers on an ocean-view cliff in Attunga Reserve, with Zoe Morley Photography along to capture the view.

The wedding party moseyed down from the empyrean cliff to the comfort of Andrea’s parent’s home. “We wanted to keep our reception celebrations extremely private and personal,” explained Andrea. And that’s exactly what they did – setting up an intimate marquee dinner in the backyard.

With a ‘vintage inspired garden party’ in Andrea and Matthew’s minds, Shady Fig certainly followed through with the production of unstructured, seductive florals to set the garden scene. Making a DIY wedding look easy, the rest was all down to the handy work of Andrea and Matthew. They even gifted small rose bushes to all their guests as bonbonnieres!

Zoe Morley had an absolute ball capturing this chimerical garden party wedding, as it wasn’t just the newlyweds who were ‘high on luurve’ – the bridal party was made up of couples! Being the bride and groom’s siblings and their partners, this made for some stunning and intimate shots.

“My wedding dress by Lover the Label was the first dress I saw, in the first wedding magazine I opened and it was the first wedding dress I ever tried on!” told Andrea. Is that meant to be, or what?

Being a graphic designer, Andrea Mazzitelli took the wedding stationery into her own hands, ensuring everything was top notch and consistent with the vintage botanic theming.

Florals by Shady Fig took centre stage of the décor; with deep red bouquets, unstructured botanic arch and not to mention Andrea’s striking flower crown.

Wearing a mixture of Ben Sherman, Hugo Boss and Politix, Matt certainly knows how to put a dapper outfit together. We're particularly smitten with his patterned shirt and bow tie.

Not-so-sweet tooth’s, Andrea and Matt opted for a tower of cheese wheels by Robertson Cheese Factory instead of a cake, topped with the quirky personalized cake topper by Communicake It. Pass the cheese please!

Aw, I just LOVE their colour palette and the vintage cars – that mini! Too cute. A great example of a DIY wedding that looks professionally styled to perfection! And are they little pork pies they’re serving?! Yum!!
