Ruby & Kori chose the relaxed St Leonards Yacht Club, in St Leonards, Victoria, for their December 2009 wedding. Opting for an outdoor ceremony, it was decorated with hand painted umbrellas and rose petals that tied back to their story book invitations featuring colourful birds and butterflies. Antique lanterns, plush rugs and old fashioned wooden sign posts littered the area to create a welcoming atmosphere. With the reception being held inside the Yacht Club, Ruby & Kori wanted it to be transformed into an ‘Alice in Wonderland Tea Party’. Thanks to planners & stylists A Lavish Affair this became their reality. Hand painted umbrellas hung over rectangular tables featuring duck egg blue and latte striped linen, surrounded by white chairs. Tying in with the theme, each centrepiece was an edible creation ranging from turkish delight and mushroom meringues to tea cup cookies and miniature cupcakes. Completing the look were brightly coloured flowers arranged in various vessels such as tea cups, recycled water bottles and milk jugs. The added surprise for guests was the lounge that was created, scattered with various brightly coloured cushions and accompanied with a gypsy jazz band in which guests could relax the day away.
