Elizabeth + Andrew
We are in love with Elizabeth + Andrew’s big day! The vibrant colors and stunning decorations are such a bright contrast to the relaxed feel of the Sea Cider Farm and Ciderhouse. One stand out feature of this beautiful wedding is their reception – that tent alone left our jaws on the floor.
Elizabeth and Andrew had their wedding at their home away from home, in Victoria at the beautiful Sea Cider Farm and Ciderhouse. We were graced with the most perfect weather that day – sun with some cloud coverage and the just right warm temperature. Elizabeth, being the skilled florist that she is, designed the entire look of their wedding and had the most beautiful blooms for the ceremony and reception. Her bouquet was definitely an iconic part of their day (look at the size of that thing)! The vibrant colour scheme of their wedding is to die for – deep reds, lush greens and rich oranges. Even their wedding party’s attire added extra pops of colour! I absolutely adore when the wedding party wears a mix of different shades, it creates such a gorgeous dynamic in photos.
Their ceremony was nestled in the forest with rays of sunlight peeking through. Intimate and cozy are the two words I would use to describe it. Elizabeth and Andrew had the biggest smiles on their faces as they exchanged their vows to each other, and a few tears were shed as well (including mine). At the reception, my eyes were in for a feast with even more vibrant details: harvest tables filled with fresh cut citrus fruit, floral arrangements, linen runners and long wick candles. The bride loves books so their table ‘numbers’ were actually place cards with places from some of her favourite books! In fact, the way Andrew proposed to Elizabeth was related to books too. He collaborated with one of her friends to illustrate a storybook of their love story, placed it in a Shared Library by their house, and led her to discover it on one of their walks. They actually had the storybook on their seating chart table!
Not only were the details of their wedding incredibly well designed and put together, the entirety of their day was filled with beauty. Every person there was so excited to celebrate with these two, and they were beyond deserving of it. I’m so glad I got to be there to document all the moments that unfolded. Can’t wait to be back at Sea Cider Farm and Ciderhouse to capture some more memories soon!
