I hope these recs can help some Canberra Brides. I did alot of research and was really happy with most of my suppliers.Dresses: LaBelle.
I had heard mixed reviews about LaBelle but Ashley was amazing for me and really gave me honest opinions. I didn't end up getting 2 of my bridesmaid dresses until the Friday night before the wedding because of some miscommunication but I had every confidence they would arrive in time.Reception; OPH,
perfect, I was in love with the venue as soon I saw it. They went through a few wedding coordinators while I was engaged and were a little difficult when I asked for canapes after the ceremony rather then before dinner but it all turned out well. Ceremony Music: Aeolus Wind Trio,
played so well and it fit well with the courtyard setting (Kaywoman got a better price
) hehe, they were worth it though. Celebrant: Graeme Hush,
really relaxed and gave us lots of freedom in the ceremony. DJ: Ardanien Entertainment,
we didn't get to meet our actual DJ until the night, he player all the songs we wanted but we were supposed to have a game thingo for the tables to write a poem for us and he didn't do that. He also took a video of the dance floor and it goes black for our wedding dance so you don't see it. I shouldn't complaint because I was told it might not work. But why just 'that' dance! Florist: Joanne Flowers & Florist at Parliament House,
I can not recommend Kathy enough from Joanne's florist, not only are her prices sooo much better then other florist when you mention weddings but she gave me great ideas and told me what was in season so I didn't have to pay extra to get flowers shipped in from around the county only to wilt on the day. I should have asked for white ribbons around the stems though becuase the purple came off on my dress a little. I had to use florist at Parliament House for the reception flowers and they matched them really well.Car: A1 Cars
for the Packard and a friend of a friend for the charger, they were both great.Cake: Cake of your dreams,
so easy to deal with, I wasn't really fussed on the cake but it looked awesome and the sugar flowers matched our flowers perfectly.MakeUp:
I booked Zoë Barton but she went away so she suggestion Kylie who works with her and Kylie was very professional and our makeup was flawless.Hair: Cataldos,
I have been getting my hair done there for years and my hairdresser knew exactly what I wanted even with my terrible explanations of hairstyles.
Hmm, what am I missing? Our photographer is a friend of a friend and I could not have asked for anything more. I love every single shot he took.
If anyone is going to LA for their honeymoon I recommend going through magellanvacations travel agent, they were the cheapest rates and really great service, they even called me from the states instead of emailing.
Well done if you have got this far, sorry, I didn't realise it would be so long! If you want more details then please PM me.
