RACQUELA + MICHAEL

Kantara House.

Racquela and Michael were married at Kantara House. “We wanted something totally unique, and the Central Coast was a perfect location for a middle point between ourselves in the Hunter Valley and our families in Sydney and surrounds.

As soon as we visited Kantara House our jaws literally dropped. The beautiful Charlotte Chapel, crisp white reception space, lush tropical gardens, vineyard patch, fairy light canopy…it was perfect. Plus, it was a one stop shop – ceremony, reception and accommodation. This hidden gem ticked all our boxes!

CEREMONY
“We opted to do a first look to take advantage of our beautiful accommodation. When it was time for the ceremony, we twisted tradition and walked down the aisle together and were met with our light-hearted and fun celebrant, who captured our story, our personalities and included all the guests in the ceremony. It was so perfect!

Our colour palette was a mix of neutral colours with a hint of gold and pink…which made the crisp white of Kantara House and green tropical surrounds POP! Our florals were a mix of pink, gold and natural palms and dried flowers that were complimented with an array of roses, anthuriums, carnations and beautiful baby pink orchids.”

RECEPTION
“Our reception was decorated with gold candles, neutral signage and an abundance of florals everywhere you looked! The dance floor that was an absolute hit thanks to Kartik and his band from Red Soda. Kartik has musical and party super powers that got everyone dancing the night away.

Kantara House catered to all of our guests dietary needs and the food was amazing! Karina worked with us to personalise a menu to suit us and our guests. The alcohol list was also personalised and included their signature cocktail, the ‘Kantara Flossy!’

DETAILS
“Our wedding planning and lead up is definitely one for nuptials history books! To get to our special day was no easy feat, one engagement, once in a century pandemic, four postponed wedding dates, one elopement, once in two-hundred year flood…and all this for a once in a lifetime love. We’d do it all again to relive our wedding day.

We feel so lucky to have our day and even luckier we got to celebrate it with all of our favourite people – including our special vendors. A big thank you to Elisha and Bonnie for giving us beautiful memories we can cherish forever. You are both beyond talented and have truly captured our day in the most special way.”
