Tell us about the wedding dress?

It was a princess style dress with lace and sequins around the bodice and a nice flare out skirt, worn with a hoop underneath and a mid to long veil.

Tell us about the ceremony?

The ceremony at the hunter valley gardens chapel was a beautiful the ceremony fun, with personal touches throughout including Josh's dad leading the ceremony and Hannah's brother playing the guitar during the signing of the offical paperwork.

Tell us about the reception?

Our reception was more relaxed and as we had a buffet dinner and the drinks were collected from outside, so it encouraged people to move about and socialise and also enjoy the views from out on balcony over the vineyards. We, with help from family and friends, set up the hall and decorations ourselves so it was fun to see it all come together so well and everyone seemed to be having a good time. Instead of a traditional first dance, we played the shoe game instead! It was more us - and it gave everyone a laugh! We had a few rustic touches such as the cake on the wine barrel and the wooden table numbers, but we also kept it elegant with features like the chiavari chairs, white linen and gold candles. The speeches were also fun and added personal touches throughout the night!

What was the most memorable moment?

That's hard to pick! Hannah thinks the speeches are always memorable at a wedding and definitely at ours, Josh says all of it!
