What do you get when you take an AFL player, a National Netball player and the Victorian bushland on New Years Eve? The answer is simply….one of the most incredibly fun weddings that we’ve been lucky enough to be a part of!
When Shae & Mitch approached us to cater for their wedding last New Year’s Eve, we were more than a little excited! The sports mad couple were living in Perth WA both playing for their respective teams, but wished to have their special day here in Mitch’s home of Victoria. Growing up in rural farmlands outside of Ballarat, Mitch’s family home with it’s surrounding picturesque landscape, seemed to be a fitting venue for this super relaxed, fun couple.
The theme set for the big day, was a ‘hippy styled music festival’ with the simple intention of everyone being able to be relaxed and happy. And the talented team over at Sooti Events certainly ensured that this brief was carried out throughout the day with their stunning styling, theming & signage. When it came to the eclectic furniture and food props, the consummate professionals at Place Settings made sure everything was in perfect keeping with the designed brief. In keeping with the unique design of the day, the bride & groom pulled off an ‘effortlessly chic’ style, in both their outfits. Shae radiated beauty in a stunning bridal dress by Pallas Couture, whilst Mitch & his groomsmen were decked out in custom made suits with matching country-style hats by Past Present The Label.
Given the relaxed nature of the New Year’s Eve wedding, Shae & Mitch opted to steer away from a sit-down service style of food, and to go with roving canapés, followed by a selection of Food Stations. With a Mexican Taco Bar, Pizzeria and Fish & Chip Station all set up for the excited guests to ensure that everyone was catered for, there was certainly no one going hungry!
With a rustic bush landscape, stunning bright florals, specially designed Tipi Tents, custom-made Food Stations and the one of the happiest wedding crowds ever, Shae & Mitch most certainly made this day, one to remember!
