On the morning of the wedding, I went straight to Jaspers Berry, which is located on the South Coast of NSW. It’s really is a beautiful area, surrounded by lush fields, big trees and paddocks. The venue itself is stunning with manicured garden, a huge tree covered in fairy lights, tree strung lanterns and a giant chess board. What better place to be for a Summer wedding?!
The morning was relaxed and fun. On both Rachel and Blake’s side, there were flowing drinks, nibbles, laughs, dancing and even speak of a swim (which didn’t eventuate!).
The ceremony was held in the courtyard with lanterns hanging above, a pebbled isle and the soothing sound of a running fountain.
Once they were married (woohoo!), they welcomed their guests as celebratory hugs came in fast. Not long after, I took Rachel and Blake for a little walk around the pretty gardens for a few photographs.
The reception was awesome. So much happening all the time. The bridal party (including parents!) danced their way in, calming their nerves by taking a shot at the door! It really did set the scene for what was to come – hilarious speeches, complete with the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks song, loads of dancing, dance floor limbo, a farewell tunnel and drinks by the pool.
Jaspers Berry is truly a lovely venue for a South Coast Wedding.
