Villa Maria Estate wedding by Coralee & Alex

I don't often seeing weddings with a lot of blue... especially navy, in them, so this sweet wedding from Coralee & Alex makes a lovely change. Spencer and Amanda were married at the exquisite Villa Maria Estate on a sunny Sunday in January. Both being passionate about wine, food, modern architecture and natural beauty, Villa Maria Estate was the perfect venue to carry out their special day.

While Amanda grew up in New Zealand, Spencer moved over from England 9-years ago. It was so incredibly special to the couple that Spencer’s parents, his four siblings and other amazing friends and family travelled from near and far to share their day with them. 

The day commenced down by the late where the emotional ceremony took place. The bridal party walked down the hydrangea-laden aisle to a rendition of the late “Etta James’ – At Last”. The couple exchanged vows and promises they had written for one another. Wanting a relaxed, emotional, fun, beautiful and romantic day their expectations were exceeded.

The romantic colour scheme featured elegant midnight-blue of the bridesmaids dresses and creams, muted greys and soft peaches of the bouquets and buttonholes. Rice paper lanterns floated in the wind.
Amanda wore her late-Grandmother’s brooch in her hair and her great-Grandmother’s cameo on her bouquet.

With the help of Anna Sandford, Amanda’s dream centrepiece’s became reality. Peach cut-glass pedestal cake-plates showcased a gorgeous dome of cream, green and peach flowers. Lace-wrapped tea-light candle holders, posies in cut-crystal vases, hand-made table numbers and chiavari chairs completed the romantic theme.
