Photographer – Khara Deurhof – House of Lucie Love
“My sister in law put me in contact with Khara having worked with her in the past. Upon meeting Khara and seeing her work, Tom and I knew she was the person for the job. She was so lovely and warm we felt at instant ease with her and knew she understood the way in which we wanted the day to be captured. Khara went above and beyond from day one and the finished suite of photos were so breathtaking we are now working with her to create a curated album!”
Stylist – She Designs
“She Designs were brilliant to work with. They have a very distinct style which we thought worked well with the venue but were very receptive to our ideas and ensured their plans aligned with our vision. On the day, the set up exceeded all of our expectations. Personally, one of my favourite elements was their floral work. The arbor they built for us to get married beneath and the floral centerpieces for the reception were absolutely breathtaking. The transformed the Cell Block Theatre into the magical, romantic space we had dreamt of.”
Makeup – Katie Angus
I chose Katie Angus for make-up. Katie nailed the dewy, golden look I was after without making me feel like I was caked up with make-up. Katie was not only concerned with ensuring she nailed the look I was after but also with how the make-up felt and wore on my skin. She gave me advice on my skincare regime in the lead up to the wedding and on the day, made myself, my mum and my bridesmaids feel like glam versions of ourselves!
Music – Acoustic – Mark Harding
We had the wonderfully talented Mark Harding playing acoustic covers of our favourite songs before and during our ceremony.
DJ – Charlie Chux
I am lucky enough to have two very talented musicians in my family (my brother and sister in law) and as a wedding gift, they organised Charlie Chux to DJ the reception. They worked with Charlie letting him know the must and must nots along with a general flow for the evening and between them managed to orchestrate a heaving dancefloor that had guests chanting for more at the end of the evening.
Wedding Bands – Michael Chubb – Family Jeweller
We went with Michael Chubb, a jeweler my family has been going to for over 30 years and who Tom worked with in creating my engagement ring.
Bouquets – Mandy Costin – Flossie
Bouquets were one of the elements I cared about most and I wouldn’t have trusted anyone else. I had once dreamed of Mandy doing all the florals for our wedding but she moved to London shortly after we got engaged. Safe to say I was over the moon when she decided to move home and agreed to do the bouquets for the day, she truly is the best in the bizz!
Caterers – Piquant Catering
Piquant Catering had previously run a café on the NAS grounds and knew the venue inside and out. Their food was fantastic and they worked with us to craft the perfect menu and flow of the courses for the evening. The team were so accommodating and professional, they helped the whole evening run seamlessly!
