Elegant Vintage Australian Wedding

I am very excited to feature the wedding of talented designer/illustrator Tabitha Emma and Dan. Tabitha is the talent behind our own blog at Van Damme Weddings.

Tabatha created for she and Dan a beautiful and elegant wedding with so many of her creative touches in the details. The bride designed all the beautiful paper goods.

The couple, lovers of old architecture and vintage finds were married in The Great Hall at Sydney University.  The hall over 150 years old is a great example of Victorian Gothic revival architecture. Reception followed at the Petersham Town Hall where the over two hundred guests ate, enjoyed and danced the night away to a live Jazz band.

I am in love with the bride’s Maggie Sottero gown and headpiece by whichgoose. The bridesmaid’s dresses are the perfect compliment to Tabatha’s look.

The gorgeous bouquets by Clementine Posy are fabulous.  The beautiful images captured by Luisa Brimble of Serendipity Corner capture the day perfectly.

There are so many perfectly placed details that make this wedding beautiful. I especially love that the cake was made by the bride’s grandmother and decorated by the bride and her mother. This wedding is full of beauty, friends, family and lots of love.

Sedona Red Rock Elopement

Jillian and Josh were married on the banks of Oak Creek with stunning Cathedral Rock backdrop. Attended by their parents the day was beautiful, the light perfect and all about love.

Jillian wore a stunning gown, bejeweled flower sash and statement necklace. Jillian wore a pair of Tom’s shoes, perfect for the red rocks. Tom’s are cute, comfortable and best of all for every pair of shoes purchased; they give a pair to a child in need.

From the bride:

We decided to not have a traditional wedding because we wanted something that was going to be fun and focused on just us rather than an extravagant ceremony.  We are both very relaxed, and simple people that take life a day at a time.  We both enjoy traveling and are excited to be surround by a beautiful place on our wedding day.
