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.

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!

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.

5 Tips for Choosing Your Elopement or Micro Wedding location

5 Tips for Choosing Your Elopement or Micro Wedding location

Choosing Your Elopement or Micro Wedding location

When it comes to planning your micro wedding or elopement, choosing the perfect location is one of the most important decisions you’ll make.

After all, your wedding venue sets the tone for your entire day and can make or break the ambience and overall feel of your celebration.

  1. Consider Your Style and Preferences

The location you choose should reflect your style and preferences as a couple. Are you more drawn to natural settings like parks, forests, and beaches? Or do you prefer the urban vibe of a cityscape or industrial space?

Consider what kind of backdrop and setting will make you feel most comfortable and happy on your big day.

Choosing Your Elopement or Micro Wedding Location
  1. Think About the Size of Your Guest List

Opting for a micro wedding or elopement offers the advantage of selecting a smaller, more intimate venue that may not be suitable for a larger guest list.

It’s essential to consider the number of guests you plan to invite and ensure that the chosen location can comfortably accommodate your group without feeling crowded or overwhelming.

Flexibility

This flexibility allows you to think outside the box, with endless possibilities for unique and memorable locations. While micro weddings or elopements may not be for everyone, they offer the opportunity to break away from traditional settings.

Think outside the box

In the past, we’ve held ceremonies in cliff-top caves, tattoo parlours, WWII bunkers, creek beds, backyards, on multiple cliff-top walks, showcasing the wide range of unconventional options available.

These locations would not be possible with larger guest numbers, emphasizing the exclusivity and intimacy of micro weddings and elopements.

  1. Consider the Time of the Year

     

    Winter:

    • Cozy atmosphere with crackling fireplaces
    • Indoor venues with soft lighting
    • Rustic decor creates warmth and intimacy

    Autumn:

    • Breathtaking views of colourful landscapes
    • Vineyards showcasing rich autumnal tones
    • Walking amidst the beauty of changing foliage
    • Enjoying the coziness of rustic settings

    Spring:

    • Outdoor venues bursting with blooming flowers
    • Natural light casts a romantic glow
    • Exchanging vows amidst lush greenery
    • Garden ceremonies with fresh floral scents
    • Picturesque settings like vineyards and outdoor terraces

    Summer:

    • Celebrating under clear blue skies
    • Beach weddings with the sound of waves
    • Gardens filled with vibrant summer blooms
    • Countryside estates offering a serene backdrop
    • Dancing under the stars on warm summer nights

Choosing Your Elopement or Micro Wedding Location
  1. Research Local Regulations and Permits

Depending on where you live, there may be local regulations and permits you need to obtain to hold your wedding in a certain location. Some councils require beach permits, while others don’t; some operate on a “first in, best dressed” concept.

For large weddings, we definitely recommend securing a site, while for smaller weddings, you can get away with not doing so.

Other locations like botanical gardens may require a photography permit, which, after years of experience, can work to your advantage. I might write another blog on this topic.

Be sure to do your research and make sure you have all the necessary paperwork and approvals before you book your venue. We can help you with this.

  1. Choose a Location with Meaning and Significance

Finally, consider choosing a location with personal meaning and significance to you as a couple. Maybe it’s the park where you had your first date, the beach where you got engaged, your family property, or even your backyard. Incorporating these personal touches into your wedding venue can make your day even more special and memorable.

 

Choosing Your Elopement or Micro Wedding Location can be a daunting task, but with these tips and advice from our team at KISS Package, you’ll be on your way to finding the ideal setting for your special day. Happy planning!
