Nicola & Ash by Arianna Leggiero
“I stumbled across Mount Ophir Estate on Instagram and we drove three hours north to visit it one cold winter weekend. We absolutely loved how raw and untouched it was. Only one wedding had been held onsite so a lot was left to the imagination. There was so much history to the site and we knew we could make a weekend getaway for our wedding guests."
"As someone who definitely did sweat the small stuff (I spent weeks deciding on napkin placement, napkin placement!), I feel a bit hypocritcal saying that now, but, at the end of the day, it didn’t make a difference how the napkins were placed, the important thing was the commitment we made to each other on that day, surrounded by our family and closet friends."
"Celebrating the last days of summer and ravishing in those final moments of sunshine, with warm notes of cream, beige, mustard, dusty pinks and terracotta creating the most beautiful nod to the iconic era of the 70’s."
"Seeing each other before the ceremony was very important to us both. We instantly calm each other and we also just wanted to spend as much time together on the day as possible! We loved having a special moment for just us to enjoy (and cry of course!) and maximise the party time with our guests!"
"Our aim for the day was to celebrate the only way we know how, by throwing a big party. The venue we chose was for this exact purpose, an industrial style café where we could have both the ceremony and the reception to save our guests moving from one place to another. Ceremony over = straight into party mode. "
"Here we have the top five online weddings for February 2020 for your viewing pleasure. Counting down from number five to one based on website views, all are incredibly beautiful and uniquely personal in their own modern way. Congratulations to the top five for Feb!"
"Welcome to the very first Together Journal Style Edit. A curated collection of styled settings designed to inspire couples who are about to embark on their wedding journey."
"What’s unique about Shaun: “He’s easily the most patient and supportive human I’ve ever met. The distractions of life rarely faze him because he knows exactly what matters the most to him, family (and me!) ” What’s unique about Ada: “Her passion she has towards life, friends, family. And her (next) level attention to detail is what brought our whole wedding together.”"
We both wanted a small wedding and kept everything quite simple. We wanted our wedding to feel modern but romantic and relaxed. We got married on the grounds of Heide Museum of Modern Art, underneath a beautiful tree and the weather was just perfect on the day. We then had a small dinner reception for 28 people at Cumulus Up where we got to let our hair down and celebrate with our nearest and dearest. Because we had a small wedding we also threw a bigger party two days after at a bar in the city. We loved that we could continue the celebration with our extended family and friends.
