Sian and Kurt chose the stunning location of the hatted restaurant, Circa 1876 in the picturesque wine country of the Hunter Valley for their December wedding. Their ceremony took place in the restaurant’s back garden. Their wedding aisle was naturally lined with tall trees, two wine barrels topped with floral arrangements and a luscious scattering of red, rose petals. Their florist, Becca from Flora Folk designed a large arrangement, that marked their alter and complimented their jewel tone styling that was reflected throughout their wedding.
After their ceremony, their guests enjoyed some celebratory drinks, canapes and garden games in the garden.
Circa 1876 is a quaint yet elegantly styled cottage; with exposed timber beams, vintage chandeliers hanging from the ceiling and a large, brick fireplace with a stone mantelpiece for the bridal table backdrop. It was the perfect setting for their jewel toned celebration. Each guest setting had a deckle edge place card, featuring their name in gold calligraphy, placed on top of a navy napkin, which also held their individual menus. Down the centre of each banquet table, was jewel toned florals in brass vases, complimented with brass candles sticks and tealights. The tables were finished off with a gold calligraphy table number on a navy card, placed in a copper card holder. All of these elements amongst the intimate venue created a romantic atmosphere for their reception dinner.
After dinner, the guests danced the night away with the happy couple outside on the deck, under a canopy of fairy lights.
