Rippon Lea Estate – Carrie & Julian

Carrie & Julian were married at St Joseph’s Church, Malvern, on a beautiful October Spring day with around 100 of their closest family and friends. They celebrated later at Peter Rowland Catering’s Rippon Lea Estate.
After getting ready at home in the presence of her excited mum and bridesmaids, the bride arrived for the ceremony in an immaculate 1960’s Mercedes Benz 600 Grand Limousine, courtesy of Heinz Limousines. Carrie was radiant in a beautiful vintage style creation by talented designer Anaessia, opting for an elegant hand-crafted head piece over a traditional veil which perfectly complimented the lace detail and beading on her gown.
A Flower Affair designed the bride’s corsage as well as the bridal bouquet and reception arrangements.
Travelling from the church with their four bridal party members in the Mercedes Limousine, the bride and groom arrived at the venue, Rippon Lea Estate, before their guests. They chose to make the most of the spring weather and wander the grounds for some fantastic photo opportunities.

As guests later began to arrive for the evening’s celebrations they were directed to the alfresco terrace where they enjoyed pre-dinner drinks and canapés around the 1950’s style pool before moving in to the Grand Ballroom.
After making their way down the marble staircase into the ballroom and being formally introduced to their guests, Carrie and Julian proceeded straight to the wedding cake for the traditional cutting as well as champagne toast.
Cupcakes by Paolo were responsible for the amazing cup cake tiers which guests later took home to enjoy.

Rippon Lea Estate – Nicole & Bernard

St Patrick’s Cathedral set the scene for a fairy tale wedding for Nicola and Bernard who celebrated their marriage on a perfect spring day last October. Annette of Melbourne dressed the bride in the most elegant of gowns, complimented with a stunning traditional lace veil.
Blumenthal Photography captured this beautiful moment and provided the Bride and Groom with a stunning collection of memories from the day.
Nicola says of her wedding day “We wanted the day to have a classic, timeless feel to it and were thrilled when all the elements came together to make that happen. We were fortunate to have so many amazing people working to make that happen for us. We were also lucky to be surrounded by many of our family and friends on the day, whose support and enthusiasm lifted the atmosphere and helped to create a truly magical day for us.”
 Patrick and Phillip had the honour of being Bernard’s Groomsmen.

Before joining their 110 guests for dinner in the ballroom at the Historic Rippon Lea Estate Nicole and Bernard took the opportunity to book the famous gardens for their wedding photography.

This beautiful classic wedding car, in keeping with the style of the venue, was provided by Triple R Luxury Car Hire, regular visitors to Rippon Lea.

The talented team Flos Florum in Malvern created these beautiful centrepieces and vintage style bridal bouquets. The couple also provided their own table number cards to tie in with the theme of their invitations and wedding stationery.
