Wendy & Brian
16th of November, 2016
Wendy and Brian’s love story started as a beautiful friendship. They met as teenagers at the end of high school and remained friends. They slowly became best friends, watching each other grow and witnessing each other’s heartaches as well as celebrations. They even travelled the world together and eventually their friendship started to have elements of platonic love. Then two years ago, they realised they were actually in love. Brian had planned the perfect proposal. He tricked Wendy into visiting a strawberry and tomato picking farm. She always loved eating tomatoes and it became a theme of the proposal. She walked into a majestic backdrop of red and green vines to find a guitarist playing their song, Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud” and saw Brian down on one knee.
Their wedding was a glamorous Gatsby-Inspired affair with lots of confetti, fun and dancing. They hosted their ceremony and reception at Rocky Point Island in Balmoral and they did all the planning themselves. The ‘vintage art deco’ theme had a few unique elements such as gold geometric frames used as a ceremony backdrop, a huge balloon installation at the pre-dinner cocktail area, elevated floral centrepieces on the tables, an impressive 8-tier wedding cake and fireworks synced to a music track which went off at the climax of the night. Their wedding transport included a vintage Rolls Royce and two sedans, while mini bottles of Moët champagne were given away as bomboniere. The colour palette was very sophisticated with tones of blush pink and vintage gold on a crisp white background.
From the bride: “Pillingers Hiring Service supplied a fully functional reception room that included the marquee, flooring, tables, carpet, synthetic grass, toilets and power. They made the reception captivating and enjoyed by all our guests.”
