Tell us about your Photographer / photos
Our amazing photographer Thierry Boudan was great and really set the tone for our whole day! Our day was full of laughs and ran ever so smoothly due to his advice and instruction. We met him at The Love In the Vines event held at Lindeman’s Winery and knew from the moment we met him that he would be the photographer for us.
Tell us about your planning process.
I did use the Hunter Valley wedding planner to secure all of our wedding vendors.
Everything was in the one magazine and as I’m from Sydney it made it very easy to arrange everything myself.
Did you or your guests have to travel to the Hunter Region for the wedding?
Yes all of our 180 guests travelled from Sydney, Newcastle, Melbourne, Mildura and Italy to attend our wedding.
Majority of people booked houses on the Stayz website and stayed in the Pokolbin area. Alot of guests also stayed at the Crowne Plaza, Wine Country Motor Inn & Cumberland Hotel
Where possible, could you also provide details of any ‘tourist’ style activities you and/or your guests were able to fit in whilst visiting the area (e.g. wine tasting, tours, shopping, dining, exploring, etc).
A lot of Wine tasting and many of them visited the Hunter Valley Gardens with their kids,
