WEDDING PLANNER: Initially, I found wedding planning to be quite difficult; particularly to find a venue that met our needs. We were focused on finding a place that allowed external catering and styling. We also struggled to come up with a format for our two ceremonies and satisfied both our personal and family desires for this union. Raja and I were able to work things out in the end and in hindsight, we can see that all the research paid off as the event format flowed beautifully. As we were planning this wedding, we realized we really needed someone with experience to coordinate the events and manage all the amazing suppliers we had hired. Caroline Kennon from The Creative Type was a lifesaver! She helped sort out so many details and the wedding ran so smoothly because of her.
VENUES: The Fitzroy Town Hall worked so well for us. We wanted to keep the wedding in one location so our guests were not needing to move from location to location. It was very important to us that we made the fun of the event and relaxing for all our guests. The style of catering was also very important to us and luckily Fitzroy Town Hall allowed us to have caterers of our choice, as well as the ability to decorate the venue however we wanted.
The Melbourne Museum was close to our other events meaning we could all walk from one event to the next. It was also stunning with amazing views into the gardens and suited Raja and I very well. The wedding events team were very accommodating, creating a package for our long ceremony and varied needs with the setup and takedown of the large mandap.
