ALICE & ADAM REAL WEDDING

We could not have imagined a better way to finish 2009 than being chosen for the December cover of Award Winning Australian Magazine, Real Weddings. The beautiful Alice graces their end of year issue published yesterday nationally. Photographed by our Principal Photographer, Bradley Patrick his ability to capture the country charm & perfect light was one of the main reasons SugarLove were chosen to record all their precious memories from the day.
Alice & Adam were married in the rustic surrounds of Collector near Goulburn in rural NSW.
Poppies for Grace designed the vintage inspired stationery. Alice was dressed in a gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown from Helen Rodrigues designed with sage green sash and elegant white headband. The couples ceremony took place in a local chapel.
The bridal bouquets included fragrant white roses, lilies, hyacinths and lisianthus. The bridesmaids wore pretty metallic silver dresses with black sashes.
The couple share their first kiss as husband & wife with family & friends.
The cafe chosen for the marquee reception was Lynwood Cafe a sentimental choice given Alice's late mother had always said it would make the perfect location for a wedding. The couple agreed and provided their guests with the perfect excuse for a weekend away.
Adam & his groomsmen wore morning suits with soft grey waistcoats and patterned ties - perfect tones for the countryside locale.
Growing up in country NSW himself was an added bonus for Photographer, Bradley who worked his magic with the relaxed settings.
SugarLove create another signature image for Alice & Adam to cherish.

Following the photo shoot drinks and canapes were enjoyed by the river and replaced a formal sit down entree. Handwritten chalkboards displayed the menu for the evening.
Hundreds of oversized lanterns were hung from the trees & fence posts and scattered near wooden wine barrels, hay stacks and garden chairs.
The couple chose several long tables inside the marquee for guest seating. Fresh green and white table runners & overflowing white glasshouse chrysanthemums were placed in handmade rustic fench paling flower boxes on the tables.
Vintage style luggage tags were printed with guest names using a simple typewritter style and were tied with black ribbon to crisp white napkins.
Black tiffany chairs were used throughout the marquee. Funktionality Event Management were in charge of the Reception Decorations/Styling and Goulburn Party Hire engaged for local supplies and installations.
Cake Boutique, Goulburn made the pretty cake decorated with striped ribbon to match the table runners and soft pastel icing flowers.
