GRETA & BEN’S BAIE WINE WEDDING.
Rolling fields, ocean views and stunning wine, a dream come true for Greta and Ben who married at the breath taking @baiewines
A perfect summer's day on the hills of the Peninsula was definitely a scene setting moment for a romance that started just a few years before at a mutual friends party. Ben had asked Greta to visit a restaurant he was working at and after sending her lots of free food, he finally asked her out.
On their first date, when Ben went to the bathroom, Greta paid the bill! When he texted his friend to tell him Greta had paid for dinner, his friends response was "MARRY HER".
The colour palette and styling was a classic and perfectly obvious choice given the coastal feel of the venue. The couple had a marquee sitting amongst rolling fields, filled with vases of wildly arranged florals by the team @thestudiobyfleur in pastel peach and pink tones, powder blue crisp linen tablecloths and Bentwood chairs.
Tying in this coastal vibe was important when styling the couples cake. Powder blue, although an unconventional colour palette for a wedding, was really striking against the flower design which flowed up the bottom two tiers. Each flower touching another, almost resembling a lattice look, with an edible pearl sitting in the centre of each flower.
As a final touch and to create a little extra height to the cake we arranged a halo of wild flowers between the top and second tier. These florals were individually wired and arranged to reflect the table arrangements and brides bouquet.
Also important was what was inside the cake. After all it's what's inside that counts, right? The couple chose our classically moist chocolate cake with layers of gooey chocolate ganache. This beauty definitely looks sweet and innocent, but all those layers of ganache are devilish!
Parting advice from Greta herself,
“Make sure you get to eat the cake! Enjoy the day as it goes by so fast, and remember even if everything goes wrong if you're there with the right person nothing is wrong :)”
