Tanilba House Weddings: Romance meets History – Trish & Aaron’s Old World Charm Wedding
Tanilba House Weddings | If you’re looking for a romantic wedding venue with an air of historical elegance, Tanilba House is for you.
Trish loves taking her dog, Sox down the water and in many occasions, have driven past Tanilba House. Trish would often stop to look at Tanilba House and wondered who owned it. When her partner, Aaron proposed to her and they were considering where to get married, Trish immediately thought of Tanilba House. She and Aaron wanted a wedding venue close to the water. “We wanted something with a bit of flair and old-world charm if we could get it. We looked up Tanilba House and had a visit locked in one of the few dates they had left and went from there. It allowed us to have everything we wanted in a wedding so we didn’t look any further.” Aaron and Trish wanted to share a snapshot of their lives with their closest family and friends and decorated Tanilba House from their own life experiences.
How would you describe yourselves as a couple?
We are a fairly independent couple, we share some interests and similarities in our star sign the fact we are born 1 day and 1 year apart. It’s a tough combination to work with sometimes, as we get on well. However, we have to work on the details of the relationship and how to make it work best, which I guess is quite a normal thing in some ways. We show our love differently but are on the same page with our life goals and wanting to move forward in a common direction. We are both left-handers And are both softies on the inside.
Tell us about your ceremony. What feelings did you want it to have?
We really wanted the ceremony outside, however, cannot plan for the weather so at least we had a wet weather option which was good. It had to be heartfelt and meaningful with a focus on the joy of the occasion. We got to add the hand binding and pick from some lovely phrases that allowed us to design the ceremony in a way that worked for both of us.
Being able to include Sox, our dog, was extremely important for us and being able to include some elements such as the bagpipes etc and alternate between music styles, modern and classical I think was very important. Making sure everyone felt included in our day was definitely something that was at the forefront of my mind.
Now that your wedding day has passed, what do you remember most about the day?
There are lots of things I remember and am enjoying reminiscing and letting all those thoughts wash over me.
Loved my dress and the way it all came together. I loved the way everything looked despite the change in floor plans and lived the speeches and dancing. My bridesmaids looked amazing, the flowers looked amazing and everything was just perfect.
The groom was a standout and loved the guys he had in his support crew. Loved the way everyone contributed and helped in setup and pack up and certainly appreciated the lengths some people went to attend the wedding ie my sister who lives in Queensland.
What was it like working with Florent on your wedding day?
I had a good time working with Florent and would do it again. As he comes with quite a reputation I am keen to see the shots and what was captured throughout the afternoon/evening. He really worked hard to capture special moments. We trust he can see through the emotions and ‘busyness’ of the day to see our inner characters and brings those out in his art.
Any advice for future marrieds-to-be?
Gosh, um don’t rush the planning, try to enjoy it! Remember it is your day but try to create a magical event that will stick in people’s minds for a long time to come
