We have some serious heart eyes going on for lovers Liz & Scott, guys. Liz is the General Manager of one of our all-time fave wedding venues, Audley Dance Hall, set in the heart of the Royal National Park, so we knew when her wedding hit our desks that it was bound to be a doozy. Combining her event planning expertise with some of the best vendors in the biz, Liz and Scott’s wedding day was pure bliss. Blooms were on Aisle of Eden and tunes on Tillee Music. Best of all, Hello May office bud (and all-round sensational human) Kristie Carrick was on hand to capture it all. Scroll down for her super shots…

THE VIBE “Family, friends, great food, wine, music, the most beautiful setting and florals galore. Being in the industry I knew exactly who I wanted to be involved in my special day. The best of the best so I could tell them my vision and then just turn up on the day knowing it would be everything I ever dreamed of.”

FAVOURITE DETAILS “Now, getting wedding photos is something that neither of us wanted to do. We hate a selfie and just didn’t feel comfortable about spending lots of time away getting photos but we knew it was important to have the images to look back on. Kristie made us feel so comfortable we could have kept taking photos for ages! She captured our love for each other and the love that we share with our family and friends. We had the best time with her walking on fallen trees and being silly. There is not one photo that we wish we had, she got every photo we could think of from the kids fishing with sticks and hot chips to special glances across the table with loved ones.”

FAVOURITE MOMENT “George, our Events Manager, had said to me “Liz I can’t help you out of the car or I’ll start balling my eyes out”. As we pulled up in the car she was the closest person to the car and I called her over and she was already sobbing! I could hear her as I walked down the aisle. It was so lovely to have not only my family and friends share the day with me but also my work family. Audley Dance Hall is a family run business and I was so blessed to have them all be a part of my special day.”

LITTLE LOL “During my Dad’s speech he mentioned I was the last of the four daughters to get married and that he was happy it was happening now or he would have had to buy a new pair of shoes. He then continued to take the shoe off his foot and as he did it started to fall apart! Lucky I didn’t wait another year! I’m still finding pieces of the sole of the shoe in my car!”

STANDOUT VENDORS “Every single one of them went above and beyond. They were all handpicked because of how amazing they are. Kristie captured the day perfectly and we will now have a special bond with her forever. She is the most beautiful soul and I couldn’t recommend a better photographer! Nikki & Loz made my floral dreams come true. They are the most professional, talented, down to earth, beautiful florists in the industry. Tillee Music brought it all together with their amazing tunes and set the vibe just perfectly. Audley Dance Hall made it a seamless event and I didn’t switch my work brain on once because I know how amazing the team are, they made it perfect for me.”
