KAREN & BRENT, 14TH SEPTEMBER, 2013
Normanby Wines, QLD
Brent and I met in 2007 through mutual friends. Brent proposed on 17 November 2012 in front of my three best friends (and their partners) by passing me a glass of champagne with my engagement ring in the bottom, I was speechless. It was so amazing to have my girlfriends there and it was so out of character for Brent as he is a pretty private person. When we were planning the wedding we wanted to make sure everybody had a fun night and that it was a wedding not to be forgotten in a hurry, we are pretty sure we succeeded.
Vintage romance theme. My vision was hessian, lace and twine, flowers, soft lighting, buntings, a dessert buffet, fabulous food and lots of options for alcoholic beverages. We wanted a venue that would let us be us, we basically wanted a blank canvas and make it ours. Pinterest was a huge help and I couldn’t have asked for more when we walked into the Reception venue, it was amazing!!
favourite menu items
Progressive Catering was recommended to us by our Events Co-ordinator and we absolutely loved the food. The reception was in the country at a sleepy old town called Harrisville, 25 minutes from Ipswich at Normanby Wines. The only problem with this location was that there was basically no cooking facilities whatsoever. We didn’t want to go the simple pig on the spit, we wanted guests to talk about the amazing food they had at our wedding. We were not disappointed! Trent from Progressive Catering met me at the venue prior to the wedding and even helped me choose the wines to go with the meals. We chose the canapés and main meal option opposed to an entrée and main due to the timing of the reception. The canapés were unique and just perfect, we had the pork belly bites, smoked salmon cornettos, mediterranean salad bites and beef carpaccio bites...could not get enough of them! My favourite was the smoked salmon cornetto….to die for! And the pork belly bites , beef carpaccio bites and the chicken main meal, basically all of it!
The whole night was full of memorable moments, can’t really pinpoint one.
what guests are saying
Guests have been saying that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. One of my girlfriends even said when she gets married I am planning the wedding! People are raving about the food, the canapés were amazing and the main meals were very generous and so delicious.
