Local Q&A: A blank canvas

Local Q&A: A blank canvas

Hiring a marquee may seem like a great idea, but what do when if you start to feel overwhelmed by the vast blank space to fill. We asked Amanda Nelson of Wachadoin Events (www.wachadoin.events) for her advice on where to begin...Don't worry – part of the reason you booked the marquee was because you loved the space. You don't need to fill every part of it. Think about the different elements of your wedding: where are the key areas and how do you want to use them? Making a feature of your top table or sweetheart table by adding a backdrop or arch can give a focal point to the room. Adding dressings such as flowers and lights to some of the marquee's features such as poles or wires can also help to create the look you want, while breaking down the space and softening the structure.... read more

Local Q&A: Especially for you

Local Q&A: Especially for you

We asked local celebrant Sarah Nelson of Moments To the following: We've waited so long to get married due to the pandemic and are now rethinking our registrar-led ceremony in favour of something more meaningful.

It's written entirely for you, so there'll be no other like it. You can ask friends and family to take part as well, making it that much more meaningful. The legal admin side of your marriage can be sorted out with a couple of short visits to the registry office, so no worries there.... read more
