Sometimes you just don’t have words for how a wedding can make you feel, and this was absolutely one of those weddings. If we had to try and describe it, we would say it was a mix of overwhelming love, happiness, and pride for the happy couple – but it still doesn’t come close to the real thing. By concentrating on their relationships with their close friends and family, Jess & Elaine created an incredibly intimate celebration of their love.

After arriving from their offsite photoshoot, Jess & Elaine chose to have their ceremony in our lakeside field – complete with an amazing pampas grass installation from Petals by Elise. Musician, Dave Heath, serenaded their guests as they arrived, adding to the relaxed atmosphere Jess & Elaine had aimed for. With their close friend officiating their ceremony, and close friends and family offering their own readings, there was hardly a dry eye to be seen.

In our meetings leading up to the day, Jess had expressed her excitement for their reception feature – the flower wall! Stacked full of fresh blooms, it was an impressive decoration that turned into bonbonniere later in the night - it was a hit!

After their feasting-style dinner, featuring Otway pork belly, dukkah lamb loin & feta and chicken breast with peperonata sauce by Going Gourmet, the party go into full swing. The party started with a bang - indulging in the Greek tradition of dancing around the shot glass on the ground (and then drinking it – no hands!). Everyone got involved, however, it seems that the transition from floor to mouth it harder than it seems!

In true Baxter Barn style, Jess & Elaine left their guests through a tunnel of sparklers, creating the perfect end to a perfect day.
