Tim and Colin’s wedding at Paracombe Premium Perry

Set against the picturesque backdrop of vineyards and the pear orchard, their ceremony took place in an open grass area below the dam, offering panoramic views of natural beauty. One moment that will remain in my memory is when their daughter made her grand entrance, a surprise that left everyone in awe. Instead of the traditional procession, Tim and Colin appeared separately, each walking atop the dam wall before meeting in the middle, creating an image reminiscent of a wedding cake topper. As they walked hand in hand toward Penelope, their celebrant, for a heartfelt and emotional ceremony, the love and happiness radiating from them was truly palpable.

Testimony:

“Coming across Glenn’s website and viewing his gallery of predominantly nature settings, we knew he was the right person for our pear orchard wedding.  Glenn was very accommodating and extremely easy to plan and deal with. Throughout the process, we had no concerns or worries about the photography aspect of our special day”

“Glenn arrived, and rapidly cast his experience and professional eye over the venue, whilst creating an ease and warm comfortability between us. He felt more than a photographer, he felt like a good friend we had known for years, as he kept us at ease and laughing throughout, even our teenager”

“He sent a few samples to us within 24 hours, of which the fantastic quality, composition, lighting, colours and clarity left us eagerly awaiting the final photos in the weeks to come.  We wholeheartedly recommend Glenn” – Colin & Tim.

Beautiful and magical venue. So extremely happy that we chose to have our elopement, couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day or a more perfect venue. Highly highly recommend!

 

– Hannah & Josh

Glenn was very accommodating with our requests and vision for our big day. They helped us achieve what we were looking for and made the day very special. Thanks to you both for making the day so easy!

– Petra & Floyd

Where do we even begin! An absolute must location / package for those wanting a small intimate wedding! Glenn (and their behind the scenes crew) were amazing from the very beginning. We planned our wedding whilst living interstate, Glenn made this ever so simple and hassle free! The package was affordable and every little detail had been thought of. On the day, Glenn met timings perfectly and did this without being in your face during your special day. The planning and coordination was just perfect and everything you can ask for when planning a wedding. Communication throughout was thorough and clear. In addition, all staff were friendly, down to earth and kind – to the extent they just feel like extended friends involved in your day. Would not recommend anyone else!

No. 1 guest

Adding a touch of sweetness to their union was their one-year-old son, who played the endearing role of No. 1 guest. The little one brought joy to the celebration, making the day even more memorable.

Why You Don’t Need to Give a Speech at Your Wedding

Why You Don’t Need to Give a Speech at Your Wedding

Your wedding day is a celebration of a beautiful journey together. Traditionally, weddings involve a series of rituals, ceremonies, and, of course, speeches. However, in this modern era where couples are rewriting the rules and making their own traditions, the idea of giving a speech at your wedding is no longer a mandatory requirement.

Here’s why saying “No” to a wedding speech might be the right choice for you.

Authenticity Over Formality:

Weddings often come with a set of expectations, and giving a speech has become one of those expected traditions. However, not everyone feels comfortable expressing their emotions in front of a crowd. Insisting on a wedding speech just for the sake of tradition can lead to a lack of authenticity. Your wedding day is about you and your partner, and the focus should be on celebrating your love in a way that feels genuine to both of you.

Stress-Free Celebrations:

Planning a wedding can be a stressful experience, and the pressure to deliver a perfect speech on top of everything else can be overwhelming. By choosing not to give a speech, you can alleviate unnecessary stress and focus on enjoying the moment. Your wedding day should be a joyful celebration, not a nerve-wracking performance.

Personalize Your Celebration:

Every couple is unique, and so is their love story. Instead of conforming to traditional norms, take this opportunity to personalize your wedding celebration. Whether it’s through personalized vows exchanged privately or a heartfelt letter to your partner, there are countless ways to express your love without adhering to the conventional wedding speech.

Focus on the Moment:

The whirlwind of emotions on your wedding day can make it challenging to deliver a speech with the clarity and composure it deserves. By choosing not to give a speech, you free yourself from the expectation of performing on command. This allows you to be fully present in the moment, savouring the love and joy surrounding you without the pressure of public speaking.

While wedding speeches have long been a cherished tradition, it’s important to recognize that not every couple feels compelled to participate. Your wedding day is a celebration of love, and how you choose to express that love is entirely up to you. Whether you decide to forgo the speech or opt for an alternative way of sharing your feelings, what matters most is that your celebration reflects the authenticity of your relationship.

Say “No” to tradition if it doesn’t resonate with you, and embrace the freedom to create a wedding day that is uniquely yours.
