With the festive season in full swing, Bride and Groom journalists Jessica and Alana are casting their minds back to the year’s most impeccably styled nuptials.
Décor sets the overall vibe of a wedding day and in 2017 Goulburn Valley couples have let their individuality shine through.
Rather than subscribing to the hottest trends of the moment, local newlyweds have curated picture perfect nuptials that are true to themselves.
Jessica’s favourite décor
Vintage treasures and family heirlooms were key to styling Valley Bride Jackie Graham and her groom Johnny Trapani’s big day.
The pair reclaimed furniture from the bride’s grandmother’s home including the signing table and a sideboard for the guestbook and gifts.
Tying in with her lace gown, the table centerpieces featured doilies with wooden fence droppers and fresh flowers.
Teepee tents set the scene for Valley Bride Emily Gemmill and husband Ben Coote’s laidback festival inspired nuptials.
Combining timber and macramé elements with pops of copper and bold blooms the couple created an informal bohemian wonderland with hints to their travels abroad.
Valley Bride Teigan Bathman and her husband James Morris took a modern take on a romance for their ceremony and reception décor.
With deep red accents, fairy lights and flowers creating a dreamy vibe the pair added a contemporary twist using acrylic and circular timber signs.
Alana’s favourite décor
Held on the banks of the Murray River, the wedding of Valley Bride Anna Francis and Shannon McLay was as spectacular inside as the views outside.
With vibrant and eclectic prints and furniture littered throughout the rustic reception, the wedding was unique as the couple itself.
Quirky suitcase accents, rustic wooden table settings and wooden doors repurposed as signs brought together the wedding, set amongst a sea of foliage and greenery in the outdoor reception area.
Romance was in the air for the marriage of Valley Bride Rebecca Braybon and Terry Pryde, with fairy lights and dramatic foliage making a statement.
Floral table runners and stunning wooden furniture complimented the wine barrels at their reception venue which was lit up throughout the night.
For Valley Bride Regan Barratt, her wedding to Daniel Flanagan was a chance to celebrate history, with decades of family photos adding a personal touch to the wedding décor.
Rustic wooden boxes and tables were contrasted with crisp, white chairs and delicate white flowers propped on tables in clear bottles, a burst of freshness on the bright spring day.
