Chris & Najma 4th January 2014

This lovely couple married at a private property in Dunsborough, and held their reception at Newtown House in Busselton, with some gorgeous DIY details.

The ceremony was under a big red-gum tree in a field. Chris cleaned up the area the day before the wedding with the help of his family and groomsmen and strung the white lanterns which looked beautiful bobbing in the breeze.

On the day of the wedding, FVE set up our white folding Gladiator chairs, set up the signing table (provided by Najma), rolled out the hessian aisle runner, and hung the lace-detailed flower jars with baby’s breath off the chairs.

The bride and her bridesmaids did all the flowers themselves in the days leading up to the wedding – in fact the styling for the ceremony (and for the reception too) was all a product of Najma’s creativity and it looked amazing!

The ceremony was followed by champers and beer at the ceremony location while we packed up the chairs and headed with them to the reception venue, Newtown House. The venue staff did a great job of setting up the tables!

The lanterns were done by Chris the day before the wedding, and the flowers for the centrepieces, the hessian table runners and lace doilies that adorned the tables were sourced and planned out by Najma. Our job was simply to place everything on the tables and make sure it all looked good before the guests arrived, as well as set out the chairs we’d brought from the ceremony.

When the guests arrived they were treated to drinks and delicious canapés, and enjoyed some lawn games like giant jenga and bocce (now available to hire from FVE) which really helped to break the ice between guests.

One of our vintage up-cycled signing table was the gift/guestbook table for the night. As the sun went down, the lanterns came on and the meal was served, followed by dancing and fun and laughter and some very sweet speeches!

Chris and Najma said “Thanks so much for your help with organising our wedding. You looked after all the fine details for our day and we didn’t have to worry about anything! We sat down and talked about what we needed and liked.”

“We had two amazing but bare locations so there was a bit of work involved but you pulled it off without missing anything!! Thanks so much and I will be recommending you very highly!!”
