The Real Wedding Of Alice & Gus – Berwick, Vic

Alice was never one of those girls who sat around dreaming about her wedding day. She didn’t have a pinterest board, or a clear vision of what she wanted – that is until Gus proposed.

So excited at the prospect of spending the rest of her life with her person, it also meant that more than a few decisions needed to be made about how their special day would play out. The enchanting gardens of Merribee House was the first item ticked off the list. An easy choice, as Tom grew up on the south coast of New South Wales, it already felt like a very special place to them both. On a chilly May evening, the gardens glowed with the warmth of the love from the people Alice and Gust love the most.

What resulted after a lot of thoughtful planning, was an incredibly heartfelt, whimsical – and above all, fun – wedding day with a hundred highlights, a thousand laughs and a million memories no one lucky enough to attend is likely to forget.

THE PROPOSAL //

On Sorrento front beach, written in the sand, our young french bulldog pup in my hands and sun was setting. It was perfect

The Most Memorable Moment //

I arrived via a helicopter (my friend was the pilot), the best part was flying low over our guests and seeing my husband standing waiting. It was such an adrenaline rush! My husband and guests all say it was their highlight too!
 

THE VISION //

To pay homage to my parents amazing property. To let the surroundings be the feature. To have a party and have a night we and our guests will never forget.

YOUR DAY IN YOUR WORDS //

The most perfect day, perfect weather, incredible vendors, amazing guests and an absolute party!

THE ADVICE THEY’D GIVE TO ANOTHER COUPLE //

Soak in every moment. Take time to sit with your partner at your reception and look around and all your favourite people enjoying themselves and celebrating your love.
