Wedding Ceremony - Tips from a Celebrant, ignore at your peril!  Reminder!

 

Coming into wedding season again, and we thought that we would re publish this post.... It was some great tips regarding wedding ceremonies!

 

I had a really interesting conversation in the Paramount Event Hire Showroom with one the Hunter Valley' s most prominent celebrants -  Fiona from Heart Felt Occasions.  Fiona made a comment that really resonated with me  - she stressed the importance of the wedding ceremony for setting the scene and tone for your the rest of your wedding day.  Fiona commented 'I have seen so many couples skimp on such items such as chairs for their guests, often borrowing mis-matched ones from friends.  Or not paying any attention to decorating the aisle - a simple bamboo arch, or carpet that signals to the guests exactly where you will be walking down the aisle and 'here comes the bride'.

Are you looking to re create a Barn wedding, or simply wish to add some vintage country charm to your table settings?  We are super excited as we have had our wonderful handyman, Adrian, make especially for us these beautiful paling wood tables, which come on hand man trestle table legs.  One end features authentic curved tops of the paling fence.  They measure 1.2m x 1.8m in length.  

Being authentic they are very heavy, so if you were thinking of picking them up they are a 2 person lift!

We also have the matching black board and easel, only 1 so if keen please let us know and shall put aside for you!

Marquee Wedding or Event - 12 tips you must know

Last week we heard of a very unfortunate story of a bride that bought her marquee for cocktail wedding reception off ebay.   

 

The bride had spent hours agonising over minute details of her wedding day.  She had paid SO much attention to her bridesmaids dresses, wedding flowers, vintage reception decorations, the hand crafted invitations.  She looked absolutely stunning on the day, surrounded by her bridesmaids and waiting nervously for her gorgeous groom.  Yet, for her romantic vintage wedding in the Hunter Valley, it was ruined, when the cheap, flimsy, online purchase crumbled in the horrendous rain and wind that swept through just before the nuptials were about to commence.  Umbrella anyone?  No, needed more like Noah's Ark.  NOT, like the marquee featured in this video, this one is professional.

 

Was the marquee up for the job?  Was is sturdy enough to handle gusts of wind?  What were the consequences if it had tumbled away, and injured guests?  There is a reason why there are professional event hire companies,  that install marquees every weekend, and professional Wedding Co-ordinators that organise them every weekend; would you go to your high school math teacher to get your tax done?  No, I didn't think so.  Not to mention you and your guests will be left stranded in the pouring rain, without cover.  Where do you go now?  Did you have a back up plan?  Great start to a wedding, huh?

Vintage by the Seashore

Vintage by the Seashore was the inspiration behind Sarah and Nathan's beautiful ceremony last weekend at King Edward Park.  Paramount Event Hire was fortunate to work with the talented Jade from Jade McIntosh flowers, whom created a classic combination of lace, vases and fresh flowers to adorn the sides of the white Tiffany (also known as chiavari) chairs.  Sarah arranged for Paramount to place a small black board in the garden bed, near the ceremony site, she even provided us with witches hats to place on the ground so there was ample room for her cars to pull up at the Park.  

The Reception then continued on at Cooks Hill SLSC, were Garth Ashford's team from Talulah's at the Junction created a divine cocktail style menu.  Paramount Event hire bought in white Tiffany chairs, cocktail tables and bar stools.  The bride requested that the Paramount Team cover some of the honour boards in the club, and install fairy lights around the balconies and dance floor area.  Whilst Jade McIntosh completed the Vintage inspired centrepieces.

Hi Louise!
Thank you so much for everything!
What an amazing day!
We had the best day ever and everything was perfect!
The surf club looked great!

Thank you again Louise,
Just amazing!

Are you that inspirational Bride?

A wedding supplier will often be inspired by a particular bride.  A bride that shows such creativity, originality and sense of one's own style, that we can't be helped but admire her.  We are always privileged to assist, advise - be a sounding board to every bride that chooses to share her day with us.  

Paramount Event hire was fortunate to be selected to decorate by one such bride recently - Sophie.  Sophie held her Vintage themed wedding at Fort Scratchley Function Centre October, 2012.  We were immediately stuck by Sophie's smile, laugh and her vision for her wedding day.  Sophie's mum, Kelly, was a joy to work along side with, and was actively involved in creating her daughter's wedding reception.  We were so inspired by the possibilities of the centrepieces that Sophie created, we decided to share the original, plus a variation that we showcased at Rafferty's Resort Bridal fair last Sunday.

How do you create Vintage Glamour effectively?

 

HI Everyone!  How do you create Glamour Vintage Style just like the Great Gatsby?  We were honoured to be involved in Jess and Steve's wedding reception at the Apollo International last weekend. Jess and Steve re created a very elegant theme, with silver plated candelabras, with strings of pearls swooning and ostrich feathers reclining gracefully.  We LOVED the lace overlays, on the guest tables, and our fairy light backdrop fitted perfectly to frame the bridal table.

Hello Brides! Anything Vintage is all the vogue at the moment.  It would appear anything re cycled, borrowed from days of yester year, items that evoke wonderful childhood memories are incredibly popular at the moment.

But the Styling team at Paramount has noticed a distinct trend towards either 'Country / Rustic' Vintage, or French Vintage.  Which one are you?  We would love to hear!  I have included some pics of our items that come under 'Country / Rustic' Vintage.

These will be on our website very soon!
