Beautiful weddings can have a real impact on us. Nina and Tom’s Australian garden wedding caught our eye, got our hearts racing, and stayed in our minds long after looking at it. From the massive bouquets to the sweet reception bunting, the colors in this wedding are major eye candy, and were the perfect choice for a joyous garden wedding. Luckily, Tim Williams Photography was there to catch every well-planned detail, glance and giggle, and the absolute happiness exuding from the newlyweds.
The Couple: Nina and Tom
The Wedding: Private Residence, Berry, New South Wales
The Inspiration: “We really wanted everyone involved to just have fun. We tried to create a relaxed atmosphere that encouraged people to mingle or to find little hidden spots to catch up with mates they had not seen for a while. It was such a beautiful location, surrounded by vineyards, in a steep valley and beautiful gardens so we wanted both the ceremony and reception to feel apart of the space. We had really bright flowers and bunting for a touch of fun, an outside bar and dance floor with bar tables scattered around the garden and a see-through marquee so you could still feel like you where in the garden and watch the fog round down the hills.
The dress and suits where inspired by my love of Audrey Hepburn. Classic and elegant. Very 1950s. I also wanted the bridesmaids dresses to have similar elements but showcase their individual personalities.”
Tom: “We paid for our mate to do his celebrant course and kept it a secret so it was a big surprise on the day. He new us both so well and it was such an interment yet hilarious ceremony. It really made day.”
Nina: “During the bridesmaid speech Tom and a group of mates got up and did a repeat of the serenade they did at uni “Your to good to be true”. Tom’s speach also had everyone either crying or in stitches (or both). ”
The Couple Recommends: “We had such an amazing group of people to work with that all really made the day. First, Tim Williams Photography: Tim is such a nice guy and made everyone relaxed which meant he could get some great photos of difficult people. He got every shot I was after and made everything so easy. Second, Tim Arnold, our celebrant: everyone is still talking about how amazing the ceremony was. Tim was both moving and hilarious. It made the ceremony very personal and something really special.”
