Holly & Joel’s Country Uki Wedding

On the 8th December we had the last of our weddings for 2012.  The bride and groom were Holly and Joel who live in Adelaide but planned a Northern NSW destination wedding so their guests could get away and relax!

We packed the van and drove for an hour to Gymea Eco-Retreat in Uki.  The best part of the drive was that the venue was located on Bonnydoon Street….so I got to sing “We’re going to Bonnydoon!” all the way down 🙂

It was a hot, hot hot December day and the wedding spanned across three levels of the property.  The ceremony down the bottom under a brand new gazebo, and the reception right up the top in the “Octagon Room”, an octagaonally shaped function room.

We got a huge work out that day…running the Americana chairs, furniture and decorations down to the bottom of the property for the ceremony….then taking them all back up to the very top level for the reception.  I’m a very resourceful wedding planner and spied some young boys who were at a loose end and quickly put them to work!  Those four little poppets helped me take all the chairs up the steep stone stair case to the top and were rewarded with first pick of the rustic lolly buffet.

Holly & Joel’s ceremony was beautiful and as Joel said his vows looking deeply into her face, you could really see the love between them both.  It was an exquisite moment and of course, I started crying (I always do).  Unfortunately Holly wasn’t given the opportunity to say her vows….a slight oversight by the priest!  She said them during speeches instead and it was just as meaningful.

All in all it was a fun-filled and fabulous day (although very hot) and was much enjoyed by everyone.

Here’s the pics of this rustic country wedding!
