This Relaxed Laurelville Manor Wedding Nails a Sense of Natural Sophistication

September 14, 2018 | juliette

Black tie sophistication met laid-back bohemian vibes in Iva and Giulian’s Australian wedding at Laurelville Manor. Because the couple originally wanted to elope — but decided not to so all of their closest family could be involved — they found a private manor in the countryside that was large enough for everyone to spend the entire weekend celebrating. Their actual wedding day was filled with elegance and grace, from the cascading orchid bridal bouquet created by Travelling Jaspers to the bridesmaids’ chic red dresses to the soft color palette used for all the decor. But the addition of boho details, such as pampas grass in both the ceremony arch and the centerpieces and the lush greenery installations, gave the overall vibe a unique, relaxed feeling. iZO Photography went above and beyond to capture all the romantic moments of this unforgettable wedding!

The Couple:

Iva and Giulian

The Wedding:

Laurelville Manor, York, Australia

We chose our venue based on the vibe we were going for. We originally wanted to elope but with European parents- that was out of the questions. We wanted to elope because we were never really into the formality which comes with weddings. This venue fit our idea of a wedding perfectly. Outdoors in the beautiful town of York, no city lights, private manor, and enough room for all our closest family. The selling point was just that- our wedding turned into a weekend event at the manor.

We arrived on Friday night with our parents and bridal party and we all had dinner together at Laurelville where we were staying. We all woke up and had brekky together before the big day started. The best part was getting to wake up together on Sunday, not just as husband and wife but with everyone closest to us. We got to talk about the night before and hear about some of the action and choas we missed out on.

At some point during the reception, find a quiet place with your partner with an overview of the whole place. Sit, chat, people watch and take it all in. It will slow down the time and you’ll get a chance to catch up on your favourite bits so far.
