Verity + Talon : Coastal Luxe at Osteria

Here on the Tweed Coast we are spoiled for choice when it comes to luxe backdrops; rolling hills, long coastlines and hinterland rainforests, but since opening in 2015, award-winning Halcyon House has become not only one of the most sought after luxe accommodation venues in the country but also, an incredible backdrop for wedding preparations.

For Verity and Talon, who were hitched at Osteria Casuarina earlier this year, the location at Halcyon House in Cabarita was extremely special to them,  “we bought our first home together in Cabarita so the location was special to us and we were able to have our photos taken in our favourite place.”

Now based in Darwin, the couple organised everything from interstate, “we wanted fun and easy without too much formality. Osteria allowed us to have this, we didn’t have to lift a finger.”

When it came to styling their wedding, lush florals were number one on the brief “our florist created the most lush and amazing floral arrangements that set the scene for the natural look we wanted.

We wanted simplicity, native flowers and lush greens. We didn’t have any other decorations other than flowers and it was perfect.”

Verity offered some great advice for Bride’s who get a little overwhelmed when planning, “do things the way that you want, not the way you think they should be.”
