Bowral Garden Wedding – New Years Eve with Alice & Duncan

I was lucky to share my New Year’s Eve with a group of wonderful people in the Southern Highlands and celebrate the wedding of Alice and Duncan.

Alice and Duncan met on a night out in Canberra.  They had both studied law at ANU for 5 years and yet had never properly met, so it was a mutual friend that ended up introducing them.  From then on started the commute between Sydney and Canberra, with the loved up couple meeting mid-way at Bowral (where Duncan is from).

To the great surprise of Alice, Duncan proposed last Christmas while on a beach holiday with his grandmother’s beautiful ring.

There were many non traditional aspects of the wedding….

1. Duncan did most of the organising (I love it when a groom does this)!

2. Alice had a “man of honour” – Danny is one of her oldest and dearest friends.

3. She wore a gold wedding dress that was absolutely stunning, as you will see.  Alice found her wedding gown online – it is a Badgley Mischka

4. The marriage was actually a “Civil Union” rather than a traditional Wedding.

5. Obviously being on New Year’s Eve is a little different, but they wanted to entice dear friends and loved ones from all over the world to come, and the Christmas break worked brilliantly to have a giant party!

6. They had a “reveal” where Duncan and Alice got to see each other before the wedding, in private and looking amazing.  This practise is becoming more common and is just the best idea!

It made perfect sense for them to get married in Bowral as they spent so much of their time there together.  Alice and Duncan had all the festivities at Silly Goose Park,  a beautiful property in Burradoo in the Southern Highlands.

Award winning Biota restaurant provided the catering for the event and the food was fabulous!  Helen Harvie at Buds of Glory was responsible for the best floral decor, and Yvette from Ethix once again did a wonderful job on the makeup & hair.  YES (Your Event Solution) provided all the lighting and equipment to help the wedding day go flawlessly.
