Having proposed on their two year anniversary after a beautiful dinner in Paris, Cassandra and Rob decided to have a two year engagement to give them lots of time to plan their perfect day without having to rush or stress. “We found the whole process so enjoyable, and were so lucky that all of our vendors completely got what we wanted from the day we wouldn’t change a thing!”
Captured by The Robertsons Photography, this pair wanted to keep things relaxed and seem more like a dinner party with friends than a formal event. “We also went for a rustic country garden feel, playing off the natural beauty the venue and grounds, with lots of flowers and candles,” explains Cassandra, who wore a gorgeous Rue De Seine gown from The Babushka Ballerina.
Held at Circa 1876 in the Hunter Valley, Cassandra and Rob hired a tonne of talented vendors like The Distillery and Poho Flowers to help make their celebration the day they’d been dreaming of…but that didn’t stop the bride from hopping on the DIY train. This crafty couple (with an obvious love for lemon) made their own bomboniere including lemon sea salt, lemon olive oil, lemon candles & lemon tea. Sounds lovely!
Now happily settling in, Cassandra and Rob leave other future newlyweds with this bit of knowledge… “Give yourselves lots of time if you can marriage is for a lifetime, so there’s no need to rush into the planning. We really enjoyed having so much to put together our day, and it was totally worth the wait!”
