How to Organise an Outdoor Wedding with Guests

Having an outdoor wedding is exciting and can take many shapes and forms, from barnyard to formal dinner party! When planning an outdoor wedding, you will need to advise guests on the theme so that they can choose their outfits accordingly and arrive in style.

Congratulations to Meegan and Steve who were married on Saturday 29 April 2017 at the Beachcomber Resort in Toukley, Central Coast, NSW.  The weather was absolutely perfect, no wind, and a beautiful 23deg with a spectacular sunset later in the day.  They were married before family and friends and the Celebrant was Rebecca Phillips-Vasilescu from Bella Celebrations, Central Coast.  Rebecca and I get to work together fairly often and she always puts together the most beautiful ceremonies.
