WHEN Amy Sheridan and her husband Chris saw the old wooden chapel at Gum Gully Farm, they knew they found the perfect place to tie the knot.
“It was the first venue we looked at,” Amy said.
“We loved the farm feel, and how rustic it was, we just knew as soon as we saw it.”
And it was the perfect setting for their special day.
The bride wore a sweetheart neckline dress , the bodice covered in crystal and pearl detail with a drop waist and a long train.
Flowers and bridesmaid dresses were soft colours and the table decorations matched the theme perfectly, it gave a wonderful contrast to the stark colour of the chapel and rustic feel of the venue.
“We had lots of little love quotes all around the place too,” Amy said.
“I like those little signs, and had collected a few before the wedding, so it was nice to incorporate it too.”
Their 90 guests enjoyed the day and family members were included in the bridal party including cousins as flower girls and page boys.
The only mishap, the guests drank all of the beer in the bar in the first hour.
So they had to send for backup, a family member heading into the town of Monbulk to purchase more refreshments.
