Native rustic wine and vineyard themed wedding was what we designed and created for the McConville wedding. The colours were uniquely beautiful and being a mix of Red Grape, Rusty orange and Dusty blue shades. Roisin and Chris engaged our services to design and bring their styling ideas to life. We spent a huge 52 hours creating just the styling on this wedding to bring the theme to life and making endless tweaks along the way to perfect the layout and design. On the day we assisted with the set up and coordination of the ceremony at The Catholic Immaculate Conception Church in Broke. The ceremony was a perfectly balance of religion, warmth and love and the traditional formalities we enjoyed by the guests who were lucky the weather held out every though Rosin was blessed with a drizzle as she was walking into the church. Post wedding the guests created a perfect confetti celebration tunnel supplied by Julie Muir – Confetti, and gosh it was worth it the photos look stunning, in fact this wedding each and every guest was dressed to perfection, post ceremony I packed up all the styling items to upcycle them for the reception a great saving tip here that we recommended to our clients. Beautiful blooms and styling items supplied by Newcastle Flower Markets, Valley Barrell Furniture and cake by Cake Cake baby. Plus an abundance of hand crafted, hand painted and personally designed timber styling items by the groom himself including but not limited to a pallet painted schedule, frames, styling boxes, cake stand, family photos and so much more we’ve never had a couple create so many raw pieces from scratch and it’s safe to say I’m certain Chris is glad the wedding plans and jobs are done we have had several laughs about this along the way. The wedding reception was set under stars beneath the wisteria outside the majestic convent in the Hunter Valley we had a wet weather back up plan but Chris and Roi assured me the traditional Irish way was run with plan A and aren’t they glad we did, the reception was set and we parted ways but was later told the guest had a wonderful night filled with fun and laughter. We loved creating this wedding and designing the look and feel and seeing the theme come to life was a true treat. We wish Chris and Roisin a lifetime of happiness as they embark on their wonderful new Journey as Husband and Wife.
