Elyse + Peter : in the Casuarina Fields

When we saw some sneak peeks of this wedding hit the Osteria Weddings Instagram, we were swooning. Not only over how picture perfect Elyse and Peter looked in the Osteria garden, but it was the little details that really impressed us. The colour choice of the Groom’s jacket, the unique combo of florals and their ‘his and hers’ denim jackets – who are we kidding, we saw their adorable labradoodle and we were sold!

Beautiful Bride Elyse was kind enough to give us a little insight into her Casuarina wedding and her wedding suppliers.

“It was a long-awaited celebration for us both and our families. 9 years to be precise! We both had the most incredible day with our nearest and dearest. Not one thing could remove the smiles from our faces.”

Elyse’s wedding style effortlessly blended together with the venue and the Casuarina surrounds.

“Osteria was the perfect location for us as it was already a beautiful canvas to work with. The style brief I had in mind was ‘simple modern elegance’. Think brass vases, gold finishes, some dark & moody florals contrasted by dried palm fronds and elegant Phalaenopsis orchids.

We wanted a timeless colour palette for the bridal party so we chose white for the bridesmaids and a white & beige combination for the groomsmen. It was an occasion I could unleash my creativity and create a beautiful space that reflected us and for everyone to enjoy.”

After months and months of planning, there’s so much relief, anticipation and excitement culminating in a few hours. It’s always difficult for couples to chose their favourite part of the day, but Elyse was sure, “our favourite moment would have to be hearing each other’s personal vows along with having our beautiful fur baby, Poppy, deliver the rings to us.”

As most pooches do during a wedding ceremony, Poppy stole the show!

Elyse’s best advice to other bride’s on their wedding day, “it goes by in a blink of an eye so take it all in! If anything doesn’t go to plan, which no doubt that will happen, go with it!

Oh, and pack champagne for the photos!”
