Melissa & Adeesha’s Wedding – September 23, 2017
Melissa & Adeesha’s Wedding
We feel incredibly privileged to have been a part of Melissa and Adeesha’s wedding day on September 23, 2017. We were a few of the 150 total guests for this couple in their late 20s. Most of the family and friends who were invited, were in their 20s and 30s with a number of relatives coming in from out of state as well as a few even coming in from Sri Lanka.
The wedding was absolutely beautiful with an outdoor setting which took place just before 4 PM. There was nothing but lush greenery in this beautiful venue and we were all happy to witness this beautiful ceremony.
The Tatra reception on Mount Dandenong in Melbourne was absolutely spectacular. The organisers did a beautiful job creating a special colour palette with natural items and floral arrangements. The venue also has beautiful artwork, a marble bar and more.
The ballroom location from the gardens is very close to any of the on-site wedding ceremony locations. Guests could watch the ceremony and then reconvene to the ballroom quite easily, with spectacular views of the gardens where photos were being clicked, chandelier lighting as well as a full sound system and dance floor for the wedding reception. Without doubt, the guests were enjoying the romantic fireplace located in the main hall. The placement of the fireplace added a formal touch to this venue, making it outstanding.
There are acres of gardens available on the property, offering the perfect setting for spectacular views. The gardens throughout served as an excellent place for taking photographs and for holding the ceremony. With a permanent wedding arch in place and well-manicured outdoor spaces, it made for some absolutely stunning photos from the day.
Interior spaces were well lit with natural light and decorated with many fine details. Fresh floral arrangements were provided as well as a number of different glass mazes and candelabras. The food was delicious and the guests had a wonderful time as they experienced the ceremony.
The wedding was a very glamorous affair with a red-carpet style photo booth and extremely elegant tableware provided by the venue. The entire evening was very formal yet beautiful. This was a true celebration of family with the bride’s older brother as MC. He narrated different stories from their childhood. He was absolutely hilarious with the whole crowd laughing during his introductions.
All the vendors were amazing, as they all worked together as a team to make sure everything runs smoothly for the wedding and it is as special as the couple would want it to be.
Ferndara was responsible for the photos and videography. They hired a DJ playing a mixture of 90s POP/RnB as well as some traditional Sri Lankan songs for the parents. Lavish Photo Booths also provided a fun photo booth for the guests which was available at the reception. Guests seem to absolutely love having the ability to go into the booth and play around with fun props getting photos done at the event!
This is a wedding event that we won’t soon forget and it was an absolute pleasure to spend the day at this beautiful venue and in joining this family together.
