A Day of Detail at Mt Cotton

Claire & Evan Bloomfield • 3rd September, 2011

Evan and Claire met by chance four years ago over drinks at a work social. They hit it off straight away, and as their relationship blossomed they put their old lives on hold and stepped out into the world together as they travelled to the UK and Europe. Eventually, when it was time to return to Australia, they decided to visit the spectacular Greek island of Santorini along the way. A picture postcard location, and as it turned out, the perfect place for a proposal. 

The couple chose the first weekend of spring for their big day. An elegant handmade headpiece complemented Claire’s gorgeous gown, an exclusive Elizabeth De Varga creation featuring pearl and damask detailing. Tulips, the couple’s theme flowers, looked stunning in Claire’s bouquet and her bridesmaids’ posies. 

Evan and Claire were honoured to be married by Bishop Ray Benjamin in the charming chapel at Macarthur Park Gardens. Their ceremony was made extra special by the fact that the Bishop had also married Claire’s parents and, decades previously, Claire’s grandparents. A Scottish piper played the classic Highland Cathedral as he led the chapel’s newest married couple back down the aisle. 

Following a memorable ceremony, three classic white Jaguars whisked the couple and their bridal party away to a vineyard reception. The reception room was lit entirely by tea lights, creating a romantic, intimate atmosphere, and guests were presented with personalised bottles of Pinot Gris and small silver heart shaped tins filled with chocolates. The couple agree that they couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day.
