From a spectacular sunset proposal to a vintage-inspired garden wedding, Regan Barratt and Daniel Falangan's love was celebrated in picturesque splendour. Personal touches were integral to the wedding decor, with handmade and antique decorations.
Regan and Daniel organised to have a handcrafted wooden guestbook made for all their guests to sign on their wedding day. The guestbook will now become a feature of the couple’s home, ensuring memories of the wedding are always present.
Made with love
All handmade or sourced locally, the wedding decorations brought plenty of personal charm. “All the stationery, table numbers, card boxes, signage and decorations were DIY or sourced from local timber yards or antique shops,” Regan said.
Following a hike to the top of Mt McLeod in Mt Buffalo National Park, Daniel got down on one knee and proposed to Regan. Having carried a bottle of champagne and a ring for the whole four-hour hike, the newly-engaged couple sat at the top of the mountain, drinking champagne and watching the sun set over the horizon.
Regan and Daniel transformed their venue into a romantic wedding reception with mint and blush accents and soft lighting. Set against a backdrop of beautiful gardens and the lovely old building itself, the venue couldn’t have been prettier.
Polaroid photographs of the bridal party getting ready in the morning were placed in an antique wooden box at the wedding reception, allowing guests to feel like they’d been involved in the whole day. A number of old family photos were also on display, depicting the bride's and groom’s families on their own wedding days.
