By now you have most probably seen our high school sweethearts Chantelle + Nick’s picnic style engagement shoot that we posted about on Facebook a few days ago so today we are finally giving you the visual feast from their wedding day.
We first met Chantelle back in September of last year to talk about her ideas, inspirations and dreams for her big day. Chantelle came to us seeking help with pulling all of her ideas into a collective concept and on the day co-ordination. Chantelle had already chosen her colour palette of teal and gold with visions of lots of brightly coloured seasonal flowers and a vintage handmade style but she was finding it hard to individualise this theme from the already saturated vintage look.
Being the very creative person that Chantelle is, it was very important to her to be hands on with a few DIY wedding projects as well as being able to incorporate the wealth of creative talent that surrounded her within her circle of close family and friends for all those personal, special and traditional touches. We toyed around with different inspirations such as a whimsical secret garden wedding but in the end it was the venue itself that inspired the eventual design.
The Historic Rivermill abundant with colonial period furnishings and machinery was the perfect backdrop for a country chic wedding. After many weekends of terrible weather leading up to Chantelle + Nick’s wedding day the skies cleared to reveal perfect weather for such a gorgeous couple and their wonderful families.
We had the pleasure of meeting a strong contingent of Chantelle + Nick’s immediate family and close friends the day before the wedding and I can’t tell you how much fun we all had together, there was so much love, laughter and support for this special couple that I literally went home that night buzzing with happiness.
Congratulations Chantelle + Nick we wish you all the very best for your future together. It was an absolute pleasure to help bring your dream wedding to life and we’d also like to thank you as it is couples such as yourself which make it all worthwhile.
