0800 and en-route to the Darlington Estate winery to set the photo booth up....I seriously thought Megan and Ryan had stitched me up and sent me out to whoop whoop!! On arriving at the estate I knew instantly it was going to be a magic day, what a venue! Having a late ceremony at 1630 meant that we all had ample time to get ready. Hair styling by the mother daughter team, or daughter mother team of Rosa and Marissa, I loved the detailing that went into Megan's hair! Gaby the make up artist also did an amazing job with a close attention to detail always touching up the girls...you can see Gaby is a perfectionist at what she does! Then over to the boys which as always was a cruisy affair involving a beer at mum Sue's house, we agreed it was a good idea to stay hydrated ;)
Both the ceremony and reception was held at the Darlington Estate Winery. The team there did an exquisite job in preparing the venue; Lime Flowers dressed the venue with colourful flowers and arrangements, alongside the endless lines of fairy lights and rustic winery features.
The celebrant Joyce held a elegantly crafted ceremony...I was eagerly waiting to get a close up of Ryan crying during his vows...but he eluded me! A special moment for the Benevenga family when they were greeted by a beautiful butterfly, I was sure she was going to land on the bouquet - very sweet.
The Darlington Estate Winery team treated the wedding guests to a sublime set of entrees and mains, special thank you for my dish - it was yummy!! Speeches....ooooOOOOoooo the speeches were excellent. I was actually spewing I didn't record them as they were that good! Well done to all!
the photo booth opened Those photo booth images are coming, so be warned, if you pulled a funny face, swung an axe into your partners head or kissed the camera...I have the evidence and you know who you are ;)
AND THEN.....The DJ George let rip some epic tunes and all hell broke loose on the dance floor!!! Bloody great effort on the dance floor wedding people, you were awesome!!
So, here are a few images from the day, and the excellent suppliers listed below! See you at the next wedding :)
