Chris and Janet's Wedding

Big

Our Art Deco Wedding. It poured all day, but besides remembering to take my engagement ring with me, I wouldn't have changed a thing. We had a wonderful day.

Invitations

Beautiful letter pressed invitations for a reasonable price. Shipping from the US was still way cheaper than buying letter press locally.

Photographers

LOVED LOVED LOVED our photographers. Highly recommended for a slightly quirky style. Hailey is based in Brisbane, but flew to Melbourne for flight costs only due to family reasons. SO happy that we chose her.

Great cars and service. Highly recommended for vintage cars. We had a wonderful meeting wandering around the garage choosing which Rolls Royce would suit best.

Cakes/Candies

LOVE Ab Fab cakes. We chose the choc raspberry cake, which was so moist and delicious. Meeting with the vendor was very helpful, and they were able to do exactly what I wanted, as well as suggesting additional features which could be added at no cost (lustre icing).

I had great difficulty finding shoes I liked, and eventually went to Novat so I could have something made. Customer service was very patchy, the 'shoemaker' himself was wonderful, but the girl in the showroom didn't seem to want to be there at all. I wasn't rapt with how they turned out, and felt a bit disappointed that I had spent so much on them.

Great supplier of wedding and evening fabrics. Very helpful with selecting suitable fabrics, and ON THE SPOT dying of veil fabric (I was very lucky).

Wide range of beads, but pretty atrocious at customer service when an order is slow. I had to ring SO MANY times. Great if they have what you need in store though.

Once Upon a Bride

Wedding Day Beauty

I had a trial for my hair, but only realised after I had booked that she is more of a make-up artist. Quite a disappointing trial, but I wanted something very specific. I went with someone else. She's probably great for make up though!

Lauren did a great job on my vintage hair style. She did a four hour trial, making sure that absolutely everything was how I wanted it.

Huge range of faux fur, just be careful of their opening hours. They are not open on Saturdays.

Do NOT buy from this supplier. I bought perfume and it took three months to arrive (by which time I had cancelled the order).

Ceremony Sites

This venue has family relevance to me, so it was great that they had recently renovated their hall area. Disappointingly they had an art exhibition on the walls at the time of our wedding, but we were warned that that may happen. It didn't end up mattering in the end, no-one was looking at the walls, they were all looking at us!

Heidelberg, VIC
Reception Sites

I loved the Centre Ivanhoe from before I was even engaged, so we were never going to have our reception anywhere else. The art deco styling was perfect for our wedding. We went for a trial of the menu before the day, but unfortunately OUR menu was no longer being trialed. We should have trialed it when we booked, not just before the wedding when we chose our items. We live and learn :). As it was we were able to see what the style and quality of food were like even if it wasn't what we were going to be eating.
Overall the staff were really good, although my co-ordinator went OS midway through the planning process which was disappointing as I didn't hit it off with the next one as well.
