WA Wedding Of The Year 2016: Alyse & Greg

From the DIY stationery to the beautiful ceremony arbour, the couple incorporated many handmade details into their vintage bohemian theme.

On the day of their wedding it was Alyse and Greg’s 8 year anniversary. The couple met through work and only four months into their relationship Alyse realised Greg was “the one” and told him that she could see him being the father of her children one day. “It really sealed our love for each other from that day on”, she said. However, it took Greg six years and two kids later to propose. “There was no time pressure, we were happy and living like a married couple. Having built our home together and having children we were truly committed to each other” said Alyse. Greg organised a spectacular proposal with a horse and cart ride through Kings Park followed by a romantic dinner at C Restaurant. They tied the knot two years later and say it truly was “the most perfect day” of their lives

From the DIY stationery to the beautiful ceremony arbour, the couple incorporated many handmade details into their vintage bohemian theme. Alyse and Greg’s wedding theme reflected their love for all things earthy and natural. They wanted a breath-taking outdoor venue with scenic views and decided to host their ceremony and reception at Core Cider House in the Perth Hills. The bride looked stunning in a boho wedding dress by Anna Campbell styled with a flower crown, an embellished cuff and a pair of earrings which were a present from Greg.

I loved the simplicity of the menus and the gold dipped feathers with the guest’s name stamped onto it for the guests seating allocation.

The dinner table looked spectacular with mismatched chairs, striking floral centrepieces and festoon lights. Chambray blue fabric featured on the invitations, cushions, feather wrapped pen, boutonniere and strawberry jam favours which tied all the elements together perfectly! The gorgeous naked cake was made by Alyse’s cousin, which was a delicious carrot cake with cream cheese frosting.
