Looking at Paul and Laura’s Moss Vale garden wedding is to digest the idea that they (okay – Laura) had a very specific vision for the wedding day and pulled it off by really pulling out all the stops.
Just look at the beautiful venues, the colours, the gorgeous flowers, beautiful dresses, shoes and all the other elements that so seamlessly melded together.
The day was a bit special too given that both the previous day and the one after had been some of the worst of the windy weather. Paul and Laura’s wonderful Moss Vale garden wedding day fell into place with the calmness they’d been praying for.
So surrounded by their family and friends they stood in the gorgeous gardens of Kalaurgan House and made their vows to one another and kissed beneath the blossoms.
We went round to Mt Ashby Estate for additional photos while the guests back at Kalaurgan House had nibbles and drinks and played lawn games (a great idea by the way!). The winery was only ten minutes away from the House and was beautiful (and also an excellent stopover for a taste of their sparkling!).
We headed into the restaurant just before we were about to head back to the reception and at one end of the building was the fireplace, tables all set out, and I liked the idea of a “Soprano’s” style tableau. The bottles of wine, the glasses, the muted colour palate, the “moodiness” – it fell into place.
I get the feeling this might need a little explanation. Paul and Laura were introduced at the reception. Paul is plane mad (as distinct from plain mad). He loves any opportunity to check out aircraft, has done flight simulators, loves travelling on them, spotting them, talking about them. So scattered throughout the picnic reception was much aircraft memorabilia. And just for a moment, the Captain ducked out with his bride…
Thanks for looking.
