Tess & Jeremy

Tess and Jeremy celebrated their love and their 10 year wedding anniversary with a boho-inspired Garden Party in the grounds of beautiful Ripponlea Estate, where they had been married. After lots of rain in the days prior, the skies finally cleared to deliver a perfect sunny day for this gorgeous couple.

A heart-felt Vow Renewal was held by the lake, with our reclaimed timber arbour was styled with boho-style flowers and macramé as the back-drop. Tess walked down the aisle of eclectic carpet runners carrying a romantic bouquet of natives, roses and wildflowers. Lovely vintage timber chairs were set-up for some seating during the Ceremony, some styled with delicate hanging macramé and more flowers. The large trees overhead were hung with lots of macramé chandeliers and dream-catchers, which all danced gently in the breeze.

A picnic area was styled for Tess and Jeremy under a huge Oak Tree, with a big boho-style rug, a macramé tee-pee draped with pretty blooms and plenty of plush macramé and velvet cushions to make themselves comfortable. Families and friends all enjoyed relaxed picnics – some on rugs on the lawn and others on tables and chairs set among the shade of the lovely old trees. A nearby marquee, styled with pretty macramé garlands and blooms provided shade for fabulous 6-piece Jazz band The Lagerphones, who really set the scene perfectly and had many guests up and dancing on the lawn.

A rustic timber bar was set up by the lake, which bar staff kept the champagne and drinks flowing from all afternoon. There were plenty of fun lawn games on the sprawling lawns, face-painters for the kids and the most delicious gelato cones were served from the sweetest little Ice Cream Van.
