Happy client feedback from our recent event at Pialligo Estate, Canberra:

“The super sweet Ty and Emma were married at the Abbotsford Convent this afternoon. What an afternoon it was, the clouds parted and the sun came out. The boys looked stunning and relaxed as I met them in the Bridal suite. They were sipping bourbon and having a great time.
Emma looked simply stunning and her two flower girls were so cute. The team at Bursaria Fine Foods did an amazing job with the coordination and set-up, it is always divine there. Shane from Botanics outdid himself with the amazing flowers and garlands. I loved Ty’s line that “Emma has the beauty of one thousand goddesses and the kindness of a thousand saints.” Cue “augh moment”
The gorgeous girls from Stringspace played as Emma walked down the aisle. Jess Tremp from Brown Paper Parcel Photography was documenting the day and Suzie was the videographer. Congrats you super sweet lovebirds!!”
