Kathryn and Nick had their hearts set on getting married in the Blue Mountains. They chose to tie the knot at one of the quaintest churches I’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting. St Gregory’s Church located on Bells Line Of Road in Kurrajong, is set high on a hill overlooking the Sydney Region. It’s exterior appears weathered and untouched, as if it’s been sitting for centuries. It’s surrounded by native bush lands of the Blue Mountains area.
The priest was a family friend of Kathryn and Nick which made their ceremony that much more intimate. The ceremony they chose wasn’t full of bling or over flashy, it felt earthy, real and was meaningful. It meant something not only to them but also to their friends and family who had made the effort to attend. It was easy to tell both Kat and Nick have a great family network. There was a real buzz in the air and a lot of love in the room. Everyone was very excited to be at their wedding.
The Loxley on Bellbird Hill Wedding Venue is a short 5 minute drive further into the hills. Kat and Nick chose to host their wedding reception there. It offers a bridal chalet and various other rooms for guests. In the morning the sun rises over farm paddocks with the Blue mountains in the background. According to Kat the food was amazing.
“The Loxley has everything you could need”.
The bridal chalet is beautiful and it’s located close to the church. It has a spectacular reception room with a view of the mountains. The venue will only host one wedding at a time, so it’s private.
For some brides this might be hard to believe, but Kat actually purchased the first dress she tried on. Kat and her mother walked into the bridal outlet in St Mary’s one afternoon. Shortly after they had arrived her Mum suggested she try on one of the wedding dresses. Kat loved it and purchased it straight away.
“I learnt that day, mum knows best and sometimes you’ll find your perfect dress where you least expect it”.
Coloured smoke bombs are on point right now. Kats not the first bride I’ve seen use them to spice up their bridal photos either. Bless photography were responsible for the imaginative wedding photos.
“The whole day couldn’t have run more smoothly, many people don’t believe us that there wasn’t one hiccup. We were both relaxed and enjoyed it as much as we could. Our amazing vendors made that happen. These include bless photography, Sierra Blooms Floral Design, Renee from smash n hair and makeup, our dj/mc Scott Phillips and most importantly Rusty Kombi Hire”.
