A stylish barn affair in northern Tasmania… Jacinta tells us a bit about her and Patrick’s big day.
Location / Brickendon Estate
Photographer / Cassie Sullivan
We wanted to ensure that our wedding was a reflection of both of us and include what was most important to us. We also had a catholic priest marry us, something that was important and special for both sides of our families. We really felt that our wedding included everything we both valued which made it truly our day.
We searched all over the state and when we visited Brickendon we instantly knew that it was the venue for us. It ticked all of our boxes – beautiful gardens, the barn with an outdoor area with fire pits, our
dog Ruby was allowed (our biggest requirement!) and the owner Louise was so friendly and accommodating.
During the reception, our lovely photographer Cass snuck Patrick & I away to grab a few more shots as the sun was going down. During this time, we were able to stand back and watch our guests having fun and truly soak up the fact that it was our wedding day. All the months spent put into planning and then the day is over so quickly, so It was really nice just to have a quiet moment to take it all in!
If you can, hire a stylist. It was honestly the best decision we made! Not only were we wedding planning, but we had a newborn and were renovating our house! We wanted to eliminate some stress and it really paid off. It meant that we could enjoy the entire wedding weekend and be present with our friends and family without the worries of setting up/ packing down. Especially with a venue like ours which was a blank canvas where most things needed to be bought in.
Ash & Brad Bespoke styled our ceremony and reception and all of our florals. They captured our brief perfectly and we were wowed when we saw what they had created for us on our day. They were so professional and lovely, and we couldn’t recommend them higher!
