Weddings are such a terrific thing, made with such joy, some are full installations designed by companies like ours and others are created with the couple and their families, and this intensely beautiful wedding is the best example of what can happen when families, couples and event companies come together to make a little slice of heaven.

I get asked a lot about this style of wedding and if we are happy to coordinate with families and the answer is a big Hell Yes!  We love this style of event, they are deeply personal, made with a little bit of magic that really can only come from families and friends contributing items, performing tasks ( my favourite is always the cousin, aunty or best mate who is the best cocktail maker you have ever seen…..our family has one of those to ) and lending a hand on installation day.

There are things to remember when you are looking at a wedding style such as this and that is that even though your wedding is a small affair it still needs to be well formed and the way to do that is by implementing the same rules as larger weddings.  Invest in great catering, entertainment is key,  and choosing a handful of boutique furniture to add to pieces you may already have will make all the difference in creating those moments of ooh’s and arghhh’s even if you are in the backyard.

So if a family fling is on your to do list then let this wedding inspire and delight you.
