“From the moment we discovered Stonehurst Cedar Creek nestled amongst those beautiful poplar trees to when we kissed family goodbye on our wedding night the whole process was perfection. Not only does this venue feature beautiful stone buildings & historic cottages surrounded by vineyards the staff really do go above & beyond to ensure your day is the most amazing day of your life. I can’t thank the team enough for their support, thank you Stonehurst”
“We were lucky enough to have our fur babies Alfie & Elsie attend the ceremony which was something so special to us – we love them immensely!”
“The styling pieces all tied into the country theme with raw and white timbers.The palette consisted of mine and Zach’s favourite colours. Mine being blush pink and Zach’s being burgundy. I really wanted strong bold colours to pop against the beautiful green scenery of the property.
For my gown I love a classic style but with a modern twist. My dress resembled this with it’s delicate fabrics, detailed lace & ivory colour. The bodice was sheer so it had that modern edge but wasn’t too over the top – which I love, simple but elegant. Zach wore a matching ivory tie, light grey suit pants which contrasted against the gorgeous navy blues of the jacket and vest”.
Florist Sophia Wilde styled the beautiful ceremony arbour, created lush bouquets and filled the reception with large stunning installations.
“A special moment for us was our surprise birthday cake for my Pa. We have a really special relationship & as it was his birthday the night of our wedding we had to create some amazing memories…”
Our reception was inside the beautiful wine cellar in front of wine barrels with a view overlooking the poplar grove. We had four long rows of timber trestle tables accompanied by bentwood chairs, candles and the most stunning flowers arrangements. There were many laughs & amazing memories shared.
The most memorable moment for us were the speeches, the memories & stories that our most special people wrote about really took our breath away & truly made us realise how lucky we are to have such special & amazing people in our lives.
