monika & matt | esther garden wedding
mon + matt’s day of love was all that & more!!! these two & all their incredible family & friends from around the world gathered down south to celebrate their margaret river region wedding.
under the always amazing guidance of lauren green events & alongside an amazing list of vendors, we shared so much goodness that day! from preparations for the boys overlooking yallingup & the girls beachside in dunsborough before their heartfelt first look at wildcroft cottages it was private, rustic & a little reprieve from the summer sun & a chance for m+m to see each other before their vows. quiet moments to reflect, soak up all those ‘feels’ before the day really kicked into gear with all their favourite people.
then it was off to esther gardens in carbanup. this is the family estate of the credaro wines family, a stunning garden amongst the paddocks & vines that it a true reflection of the labour of love, vision & green thumb of matriarch of the family, phyllis.
back lit by the garden, the ceremony began with a pause to the sound of the singing bowl, a beautiful beginning by celebrant diane moore, before m+m shared their vows & were surprised by their guests with a flash reading that spread through the crowd. there were tears, there were smiles, there was so much heart in every moment. a ceremony i certainly won’t forget!
and then to the celebrations! mingling on the lawn, music, indulgences, summer fun everywhere in an atmosphere that started in one section of the garden & ended in another for a balmy evening of celebrations under the stars. and just when mon + matt thought their day couldn’t get any better…the best surprise of all…the flash mob….bigger than anything i’ve seen pulled off at a wedding before! according to the run sheet, m+m thought that dinner was due to be served after a few speeches, but all of a sudden guests started casually getting up from their chairs, more & more got up, then all the guests started to move to the choreographed dance organized by mon’s sister! a year in the planning guests had been practicising the dance from all corners of the globe & it went off!!! the look on m+m’s faces as it all unfolded & the energy in the tent almost took the roof off. it was so, so special for them, everyone dancing & all of us who had the joy of watching!
thank you mon + matt for having damien & i with you for so many moments of joy. we adored everything & sending you both so much love from yallingup until we meet again x
