REAL WEDDINGS - Angie + Anthony

As autumn is slipping away from us I thought I would share with you Angie + Anthony’s autumn inspired wedding I planned last year.

I had so much fun planning this wedding. The theme was “Canadian Thanksgiving”. Having just returned from the States myself I was able to draw on what I had seen and experienced and incorporated this into the wedding stationary, menu, styling, florals and bon bons.

The wedding also had an international flavour to it. The bride was from Canada (hence the Canadian thanksgiving theme), the groom from Australia and they met and live in the Cayman Islands. These three distinctive cultures were also incorporated into the wedding.

Here are my favourite bits -


Angie’s and her bridesmaid’s bouquets were delicious! Autumn inspired florals made up their bouquets. Roses, pomponii gerbera's (the Bride’s favourite), freesia, orchids and berries in reds, oranges, browns, greens and pink tones.

Order of service booklets

The order of service booklets were very cute. These bite size booklets incorporated the same fonts, colours, look and feel as the invitations.

Pew ends

The autumn inspired pew ends were made up of orchids, berries and willow tied together with brown satin ribbon lined the latte aisle.

Table styling

The reception featured three long banquet tables covered in brown satin linen and brown tiffany chairs. An abundance of tea lights, colourful gerbera arrangements, autumn inspired blooms and wrought iron pumpkin and pear candle holders adorned the tables. The tables were styled by by W.Edding & Co.

Personalised menu/receipe book

Each guest received their own personalised menu and recipe book containing all the recipes from the Australian, Canadian and Cayman Island cuisine that was served throughout the evening.


I have saved the best for last –the cake.It was the yummiest cake I have ever tasted ...and I have tasted ALOT of wedding cake in my time. The three tier pumpkin spice (the bride’s favourite flavour) cake was covered in ivory frosting and colourful gerberas and roses. Yum yum yum!

Keeping with the autumn theme, the bon bons were Aspen leaf shaped cookies with a thank you tag attached.

Photography & filming

These great images were taken by Vivid Photography. The day was beautifully captured by the talented team at Net Productions. This trailer gives me goose bumps every time I watch it!


The Partridges will soon hear the pitter patter of little feet. Angie and Anthony are expecting their first child later this year.
