Drew + Anna’s Garden Wedding

Our wedding and the reason Events Matter Hire + Style was born!
We have always loved to throw a party and once starting our research to plan our very own wedding we found a gap in the area for someone that could provide a one stop shop and be our eyes and ears on the day of the wedding to pull together our vision! 
Our wedding style was very simple DIY garden party that had a focus on good food, amazing band and plenty of booze (the key ingredients to any great party).
The hardest part of planning our wedding was finding a venue that we could make our own as we knew from the start that a marquee wedding was for us! We found a gem of a place only 20 minutes from Yarrawonga (10 minutes from Cobram) called Tokemata Retreat, picture perfect and exactly what we were looking - pristine gardens and plenty of opportunity to put our own stamp on it. Once the venue was set everything else rolled into place without much hassle or debate! 
Looking back on the day, as everyone says, it really does fly by in the blink of an eye but it was the best day having all the people in the world that we care about most in the one place celebrating "us". If I could give any advice it would be don't sweat the small stuff - I had plenty of things on my to do list that didn't get done, at the end of the day only you can see that vision in your head of what you want everyone else will just enjoy a beautiful day with you both!
