Nestled deep within the Hunter Valley, Redleaf is a captivating private estate that boasts not one but two exquisite properties, all set amidst meticulously groomed grounds. Its Tuscan-inspired architecture perfectly blends into the lush surroundings, creating a picturesque oasis for those seeking a serene escape and the perfect setting for Olivia & Lachlan's special day.
With a love of travel, our adventurous couple, opting for an interstate wedding was a deliberate choice, aimed at crafting an ambience that would whisk their guests away on a vacation of a lifetime. Throughout the entire wedding weekend, the goal was to keep everyone in a perpetual state of relaxation, evoking that cherished "holiday mode."
The couple's vision for their big day was nothing short of enchanting. They set out to capture the essence of timeless elegance while paying homage to Italian artistry.
Redleaf's own vibrant hues of rendered pink and blues served as a vibrant backdrop, inspiring the couple to maintain a classic, minimalistic palette. Every detail was meticulously curated in shades of white, allowing the venue's natural beauty to shine through. The result was a daytime atmosphere that transported guests to a sun-kissed Mediterranean retreat.
The Tuscan-inspired celebration wasn't just a wedding; it was a transformation of atmospheres from the tranquil allure of a European summer day to the electrifying allure of a glamorous evening filled with champagne & sparkles!
Working with Two Lovers
From sourcing advice to unearthing the perfect vendors, our Two Lovers stylists worked closely with Olivia in her final planning stages to fill any gaps the couple needed help with. Their pièce de résistance? The dream cake, a sweet masterpiece that left everyone speechless, perfectly encapsulates the couple's vision.
“Our cake was quite possibly one of the most difficult components to source. We had our hearts set on a large, Italian-inspired wedding cake; however, finding a vendor with the ability to create and transport something so large was challenging. Luckily, Two Lovers helped us find a vendor, and it was absolutely delicious.”
The Two Lovers Stylist Team stood as unwavering sentinels throughout the day, ensuring every detail flowed seamlessly as our on-the-day coordinators.
Stand out Moments
“There are so many, but other than the obvious aisle moments, I would have to say re-entering the reception in our second looks. We walked in carrying two bottles of champagne with sparklers as all our guests were singing to Calvin Harris, which then seamlessly transitioned into our self-choreographed first dance and then the party began. As a qualified dancer, that series of events was something I had envisioned for years, and it was, without a doubt, the most electric part of the entire day.”
Some advice for couples currently planning
“To be completely confident in your wedding choices. You often second guess yourself a lot during the planning process but often, your first decision is usually the best option.
Be the energy you want to attract on your wedding day. Your bridal party and guests will emulate your emotions, and they will naturally be drawn to you throughout the day. So if you want your guests to be stress-free, try to relax, enjoy yourself and leave your worries behind. If you want a packed dance floor, ensure you and your partner are centre stage. No one will leave the newlyweds dancing on their own on the dance floor. Be the party.”
