Calista & Brendan

May 10, 2016

With a full 12 months up their sleeve, Calista & Brendan had the perfect amount of time to ensure their big day was everything they envisioned. Only visiting two prospective venues, Calista says the choice was already made when they laid eyes on the Kennilworth Homestead. 

 

Wearing the gorgeous Anna Campbell Giselle gown for the ceremony, Calista wowed guests by swapping to a cheeky tea length reception gown and launching into a choreographed (and adapted) version of the iconic Dirty Dancing scene with Brendan - a routine that the pair claims injected some fun into what could otherwise be stressful wedding preparations.

 

A vibrant wedding for a vibrant couple, Calista and Brendan offer invaluable advice to couples planning their big day,

“Do your own thing. Don’t do things just because that’s how they are always done. We wanted a wedding that represented our personalities and loves and it made the day so much more fun to not be harnessed by tradition”

 

We couldn't have said it better ourselves. 

 

From florals that look like a once in a lifetime sunset, all the way down to the intricate seating guide, this wedding has us tingling with inspiration!

 

Congratulations you wonderful pair!
