Sarah's Vintage wedding at Rafferty's Resort Lake Macquarie
Vintage has been quite a popular theme for the past couple of years.  Who can forget collecting all the vegemite jars to display the garden flowers?  Or, who can remember scavenging the local op shop for Grandmas crystal cut pieces?
 
Today we are sharing these images of Sarahs and Mitch's wedding at Raffertys Resort that we styled for her in February.  Her wedding ceremony featured burlap and lace covered Mason jars overflowing with babys breath, a rustic arch with flowers and twine by the wonderful Peter Herd Florist.
 
Make sure you leave a comment below if you love this wedding!

White folding chairs, and a rose petal aisle were arranged against the magnificent backdrop of Lake Macquarie.

Paramount Event Hire created a lemonade stand out of our wine barrels, with our wooden plank across the top on which we rested the refreshments provided by Sarah.  Our drink dispenser and wine party buckets ensured that Sarah's guests were kept hydrated with cool drinks.

Our french provincial signing table, with our Tiffany chairs completed the outdoor vintage style for ceremony.  Once inside the reception, Sarah provided thongs for tired guests feet and our black board sign. 'A little treat for your dancing feet.  Grab a pair and leave your excuses under the table'.

The reception also featured a delicious grazing table of exotic cheeses and assorted hors doeuvres.  The bride and groom wanted a cocktail style reception - guest tables were decorated individually with a selection of vintage pieces, burlap table runners, and fresh flowers by Peter Herd. 
 
Our vintage ladder took pride of place at the entry and was styled with tealights and fresh flower heads.  Whilst our peg board proudly displayed vintage photos of family.

The mistakes brides make when choosing a wedding day stylist - Part 2.
Continuing on from a chat last week with our future bride Sarah, we thought we would share a few more hints and tips that she has found helpful so far….We would love to hear your feedback, if you have something to add, make sure you leave a comment below. 
 

“You will set up my wedding the night before, won’t you?’As much as we may love to be given access to your venue the day before your wedding, often function centres will not confirm access until a couple of days before your event. Sometimes the venue will book a function the day before at short notice also.  Is it wise for you to get stressed over this? Sarah, says no, that is why you hire a professional wedding stylist to install all of your wedding decorator items.  Stylists expertise lies in executing this routine every weekend, and will know how much they can get done in the time frame given.  They also have access to additional staff incase a luncheon is booked the day of your wedding, and the reception venue has allocated a 2 hour turn around of your room. (Yes, it does happen! All hands on deck go go go!) I will suggest that you let this conversation play out between the stylist and the function centre regarding the access times - the great thing is by using a professional, it will leave you with more time to focus on other areas of your wedding that you have more influence over - like perfecting your wedding day speeches!

'You have to do what?...'

At the conclusion of the night when your loboutins are making your feet throb, and you're eagerly waiting in the soft light on the steps of your reception venue, for your limousine to sweep your way to your honeymoon suite to celebrate your first night together.  You have one last look over your shoulder at the remnants of the day that you have poured every available moment into. You'll see all the wait staff packing up all the glassware, removing all the cutlery, blowing out all the candles.  Occasionally,  at the end of your wedding the function centre may request that the wedding stylist comes in and removes all the wedding decorator items at midnight.  A good question to ask your wedding decorator if there 'will be an additional fee for the midnight pickup’?  Often the wedding decorator may only have an hour to dismantle and pack up all of the styling items which were used at your wedding, and may have to roster additional staff in order to fill this requirement.  Aren't you glad you had the foresight to organise someone else to do this for you, as you are now kicking up your heels!

I hate the bureau of meteorology!
Are you having outdoor ceremony?  We would all love to think that the weather is going to be glorious,  and it would never rain,  the sun always be shining, and all the guests would mingle perfectly on our wedding day.  However, lamentably with unpredictable weather, especially in the summer months, it is essential that you discuss a backup plan that includes where the wedding ceremony is going to be hosted in case the heavens open.  Sarah found that some function centres will hire a room to you for an hour or so in case you need it for your wet weather alternative.  Generally you need to book and pay for this in advance regardless of whether you end up using this service, or not. Or, you may be one of the lucky Brides who's reception venue can also double as your wet with the alternative.  Always check with your reception venue first before looking at alternative options.

The mistakes brides make when choosing a wedding day stylist - Part 1.

 

I was chatting to Sarah, one of our up and coming brides last week,  and she got animated when we discussed the process of choosing a wedding stylist.  Sarah wanted a stylist that looked after all the details for you, but made the process as easy and relaxed as possible, without the celebrity price tag.  

 

During our discussion Sarah identified some areas that she learnt that she really need to be aware of, so to avoid potential stressful mistakes.  We have shared some of the questions that Sarah felt you should ask the potential stylist of the day of your dreams!

Vintage by the Seashore

Vintage by the Seashore was the inspiration behind Sarah and Nathan's beautiful ceremony 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!

Sarah xxx
