Their day commenced at the Emerald Lodge, followed by "First Look" photos prior to the ceremony, before arriving at the "Hitchin' Rail" to say "I Do". Whilst guests enjoyed refreshments, Darby & Yvette strolled down to the nearby paddock for further photos as the sun set. Our horses were not shy in coming up to investigate.
Underneath a gorgeous night sky, adorned by a fairy light canopy, the evening rolled on with much fun and frivolity. Whether guests were sitting or dancing within Ringers Rest Venue, out by the fire, or lounging on the custom made hay bale lounge, all remarked on how special Darby & Yvette's wedding had been and in such an iconic location.
Darby & Yvette eventually headed off to the secluded Ringers Rest "Glamping" Retreat to catch some much needed "rest", before waking to the serenity of the bush and once again joining many of their guests at the venue for a scrumptious cooked "Recovery Breakfast" provided by Ringers Rest staff. Given everyone had travelled from afar, this was a perfect time to sit, chat and reminisce together.
It was an honour to be an integral part of Darby & Yvette's celebrations and to work in with them, their family & friends and their wedding planner Bec, to help bring their dream to reality.
Thank you Darby & Yvette, for choosing to celebrate with us!
