Felicity & Gerard’s Wedding
Felicity and Gerard were delighted to hear that we did wedding planning in Melbourne. That’s because they lived and worked in Warrnambool, some 3 hours away from Melbourne, the destination of their wedding. It gave them piece of mind that they’d have someone on the ground in Melbourne to assist with their wedding planning. They had realised early on, that all their family and friends were attending their wedding as guests, so they also needed someone else to help out on their wedding day. My Perfect Event was the perfect solution.
The bride and groom, Felicity and Gerard had an idea of what they wanted for their wedding day. They had already booked the delightful Chapter House for their ceremony and Comme for their reception. We were able to help them work through their brief and ideas for wedding invitations and wedding styling. Our preferred creative bespoke studio for helping us with wedding invitations is My Artisan Studio. They interpreted the wedding invitation brief perfectly. We helped Felicity and Gerard find an illustrator who created a fun drawing of the soon to be bride and groom. This illustration was then incorporated into their wedding invitations and wedding signage.
Part way through the planning of their wedding, Felicity and Gerard learned that the Comme had undergone a name change, a new chef, and you guessed it, a new menu! To say that this added a little bit of stress to their wedding planning process was an understatement. Working collaboratively with the wedding invitation designer, My Perfect Event was able to get the reception venue name change incorporated into the wedding invitations just prior to them being sent to print – disaster was adverted!
During the wedding planning process, sometimes Felicity and Gerard just needed to ask an independent opinion or test an idea on someone. That’s where My Perfect Event was able to act as a sounding board and keep them on track with their idea of their perfect event.
My Perfect Event was also able to help the bride and groom locate and hire mini milk bottles that they used as vases on the tables at the wedding reception. We also had the perfect frame and easel for their signage at the ceremony. We’d planned and coordinated every detail of the strategic side of their wedding. It’s easy for a bride and groom to get caught up in the big picture of how their wedding day will look. It’s My Perfect Event’s role to make it happen. For example we physically took the flowers from the ceremony and placed them in exactly the right place at the reception.
I think the biggest relief for the bride and groom was knowing that My Perfect Event had every minute detail covered on their Melbourne wedding day. We helped Felicity and Gerard collate all their wedding details into a running sheet and then distributed it to everyone who was involved in their wedding day planning. We even had a bottle of water for the groom and a breath mint for the bride! Now that’s a perfect wedding!
