On a beautiful Autumn Day in May 2011 we covered a lovely wedding for clients Tessa & Ben. Ben designed a stunning engagement ring for his proposal to Tessa on a marina in Nelson's Bay, NSW. We were thrilled to hear Bride to Be Magazine were running a story on their wedding in their current February issue (on sale now)
The wedding stationery was designed by the bride's sister Lucy Bartlett
Tess wore an elegant full length lace gown designed by Lisa Gowing
To compliment the vintage detailing of Tessa's dress, the bridesmaid dresses were soft lilac silk dresses with a silvery tone by Fleur Wood
The light in Centennial Park for their couples photo shoot was divine. David Austin roses were chosen for the bouquets by Portobello Rose
A signature SugarLove moment in the parklands with Tessa & Ben. The whole day resonated the "simple & elegant" theme that Tessa & Ben chose for their day
The colours of the leaves were so rich in the park at this time of year we could not resist having a bit of fun with our own "petal throw"
The couple chose Centennial Park Dining for their elegant dinner for 114 guests. Tables were named after their favourite places. Pastry Consultant Sebastian Stephanno designed a tiered chocolate mudcake with cointreau ganache & raspberry coulis which was served with a quenelle of cream & fresh strawberries.
Guests enjoyed the night listening to the fabulous tunes of The Baker Boys
David Austin roses, tulips, lisianthi, dahlias & hyacinth on mirrored bases were surrounded by tealight candles to create a simple classic centerpiece for the guests.
It was lovely to cover another wedding at Centennial Park Dining and Tessa & Ben's autumn wedding was just what we needed after a busy summer wedding season. The perfect time of year for choosing Centennial Park and escaping for that one month honeymoon break to Italy!! We wish you the very sweetest of lives together & thank you for choosing SugarLove...
