Preeti and Robert

The wedding ceremony for Preeti and Robert was set in the beautiful gardens of Chateau Dore which held sentimental value to Robert, who was born just across the road.

Unlike most couples who spend may hours of their time and energy planing their own wedding, Preeti and Robert were fortunate to have their urban family (close friends) all involved and on hand to assist to organise it.

The presentation of Chateau Dore was immaculate. The tea lights, sweet smelling freesias and wood fires that decorated the venue resonated with Preeti.

This wedding was very personal, utilising the talents of their close friends. Lunna, was the hairdresser for the bridal party and the chauffeur to Chateau Dore for the ceremony. The floral design was supervised by the groom’s aunt, along with the vows and readings chosen for their personal meaning. Friends of the couple took on the MC duties, with plenty to talk about as all involved had known each other for so long. The best girl and the best man even used to be engaged at one time, ensuring for some hilarious story telling.

Dessert was a medley of delicious flavours made by friends and family, with the wedding cake created by the ‘uncontested dessert queen’ of the friendship group. Additional selections included cheese chosen by our friends, and an Indian dessert made by Preeti’s mother and aunt to provide the exotic.

Instead of a more traditional newlywed dance, Rob’s fear of dancing was waylaid when the couple’s friends organised a surprise flash-mob allowing them to relax and enjoy themselves for the remainder of the evening.

“It’s hard to say why it was so amazing, but was exactly what we wanted, it was perfect” – Preeti and Robert.
