A Couple Of Night Owls Photography33

Today’s incredible wedding has to be one of my all time favourites. There are so many delicious details that I wont even begin to list them! A stunning glasshouse ceremony at the Hamilton Gardens and a low-key and lovely reception in the backyard of the couples new home. This wedding is chocca with fantastic inspiration for those wanting to wed on a small budget.  A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!

Firstly I want to congratulate Erin and Grant (and invite myself to move in with them) and secondly a huge HUGE thank you to the talented team of Danelle and Hook from A Couple Of Night Owls for sharing this oh so special day with us.

“It was love at first sight. I’m referring to my eyes on Erin’s email that is. Erin and I (Danelle) hit it off right away. Email buddies for life. Originally, the wedding plans involved Picton and a classic Irish pub. However, circumstances changed and the wedding budget ended up being spent on a house! There was no phasing Erin and Grant though, and the plans begun for a sweet and simple backyard wedding at their new home.”

“This wedding is proof that you don’t need a big budget to have one amazing wedding! They hired a glasshouse for the ceremony, followed by drinks and nibbles and a bit of croquet amongst the gardens for the guests as we whisked Erin and Grant away for some photos. Having no bridal party meant that there was more time for us to get around a few different locations we wanted to hit for photos which worked out well. They got in a bit of alone time, with us of course, before we heading back to their home for the evening.”

“Erin looked so stunning in her unconventional Trelise Cooper dress, and the stunning floral bouquet put together by one of her best friends suited her so well. Erin had originally purchased an amazing sequin number for her wedding dress, however when it arrived she realised it was a little too short in the butt region for the ceremony, so instead she decided to crank that one out for a bit of dancing later on. All in all this was one incredibly fun wedding to be involved in and we know that we have made life-long friends in Erin and Grant!”

“Instead of spending a fortune on a wedding cake, Erin and Grant chose to purchase a bunch of cheesecakes and a delicious lemon meringue pie from The Cheesecake Shop for their dessert table. So wise! There was something for everybody and you can never go wrong with The Cheesecake Shop! Oh, and those giant macarons…. WOAH. They were so good! Grant did well finding those from his favourite local cafe!”

    Oh how I love a bride who rocks a short frock – Erin looked so fab with her pixie cut and that veil! And those portraits are simply stunning, A couple of Night Owls sure know their stuff 🙂 x
