Picking an Amazing Photographer

You will look back on your photos for years to come, so take your time to research and find the best photographer for you. Our top wedding picks for suppliers can be found in our blog. Make sure you speak with them about your vision of the wedding, as we spoke about in our wedding photography tips!

Ask photographers to show you work that they have done at Ballara so you get an accurate idea of what your photos could look like.

Food, Food and More Food

When it comes to food, dietary concerns are typically the main issue, but your choice of presentation also matters. Picture an epic grazing station during canapes. If you want smaller finger food or a more customised style, platters or fruit & cheese platters may be more for you.

Having an Epic Floral Installation

There are many ways to have floral installations. Some of our top wedding planning picks for floral arrangements include:

  • Using hooks above the bridal table for an opulent piece
  • Cascading flowers on the gazebo lattice
  • An installation around the chapel entrance doors
  • Tall towers to frame you in the chapel dais
  • Cover the staircase handrail with some statement florals

Arriving in Style

Make a statement with your arrival by arriving in a stylish vehicle. It could be a luxury car or maybe it is a horse & cart carriage. You may even want to add a splash of your personality and take photos with your motorbike. Check our recommended supplier list for ideas!

An Extravagant Cake Design

Have a look on Instagram and Pinterest to get lots of inspo pics. Match your cake to your colour scheme, add donuts to your cake, or have a Disney castle cake! The options are endless.

Premium Beverage Selections

Celebrations are not complete until drinks are involved! Think frozen cocktails, upgraded bubbles or a craft beer. Have a chat to one of our function coordinators for more information about our top wedding idea picks.

Entertainment for Guests

Think photobooth, caricature artist, lawn games, gelato cart, drummer entry into the reception or surprise performances, an event nanny if having children attend or more!
