A party of three! When we first met Jony and Loz at a wedding expo and we spoke about their wedding plans for March 2020, however when we met for our first consultation in July we learnt that Jony and Loz had recently become a party of three, yep they had and still have a bub on board and announced they like to bring their wedding forward to the 28th September 2019 some 10-11 weeks to plan their entire wedding. They have pencilled in a venue at Ryges Newcastle and not much else. We indicated that providing they make quick decisions and promptly we can definitely pull together their wedding for them. Within a day or 2 it was all systems go and within the first week or two we had finalised the venue booking, they finalised their interest and booked their friends photographer Ruby and Lace and celebrant Terri Waite, they booked a local hair and make up team Enigma Hair and Body, we booked out DJ from Dynamic DJ’s, the photobooth from Photo Boothless and florist and styling good from Ivy lane they also secured their friend to create the wedding cake. With everything so promptly booked in we fast-tracked invites form Sajaro and got them out. Before we knew it, the big day arrived, on arrival I bumped into Jony and went to visit Loz, she was needing some help with the final touches and shortly after Rochelle from Ivy Lane delivered her gorgeous blooms. Shortly after Rochelle, Cass, SJ & I began setting the wedding reception with the venue staff, the styling theme was modern minimalistic with mostly greenery and touches of white blooms, it was perfectly simple and a welcome delight, meanwhile Jony and Loz were getting photographed as their first look, quick enough the room was set and it was time for our ceremony and guests were beginning to arrive, as they were probably one of my favourite parts was Loz looking down from her room at the ceremony and waving to her guest and her Groom to be. The ceremony see a beautiful level of romance fun and personality, after a few group photos our couple went off for some more bridal photos and the guest enjoyed drink and canapes before long the night was ready to begin as there MC we enjoyed a warm and yet exciting welcome their guest were definitely ready to party, we kicked off with a welcome prayer from jony Dad, followed by entrée, then the couples speech this was the golden moment, at this point none of the guest maybe one knew Jony and Loz were expecting I briefed the photographers as I knew the guests needed to be captured also. As Jony and Loz progressed through their speech they finally come to the accountment that they are expecting and once announced their guest went absolutely crazy in pure joy and excitement, it was so beautiful to witness the happiness in the room, this bub is so well loved and nowhere near ready to enter the word yet. The night continued with the couple’s first dance choreographed by Your first dance co and it was simply beautiful, halfway through the rest of the guests joined in and partied the night away. The wedding was completely flawless and came together with such little notice and without a hitch. We were so excited to be involved with the Jones wedding and wish them a lifetime of endless happiness.
