March Wedding: Brierley + Steve

March Wedding: Brierley + Steve

Back in March, the Barlens team had the pleasure of assisting with Brierley and Steve’s wedding. This beautiful couple was such a treasure to work with and their love for each other was touching.

The couple met at university in Christchurch, and with their jovial personalities, the connection was instant. After quite some time, the couple decided to make it official- committing, sharing and celebrating their love for each other in front of 60 people who matter the most to them, and indulging in some delicious cake.

The momentous occasion was relaxed and intimate. They started at the Yale-Columbia Dome, Mt Stromlo Observatory, and finished at Hotel Realm- two venues that perfectly matched their style. The observatory remains a scarred shell of the Yale-Columbia dome and is now an evocative reminder of the ferocity of the 2003 firestorm. This was complimented with minimal decorations and natural colours and textures. The couple used whites with 50 iconic chiavari chairs, a modern wooden easel, glassware from our breeze range and bunches of eucalyptus to soften the observatory’s design.

Unfortunately, the rain could not be held off. Brierley and Steve remained unfazed, allowing their good-humoured nature shine through. The rain and the observatory provided a stunning backdrop for beautifully romantic moments.
