Real Wedding: Centennial Vineyards Bowral by Matt Ashton Photographry

Bowral wedding photographer

This gorgeous wedding was shot by Matt Ashton at the beautiful Centennial Vineyards in Bowral.

Brianna and Nic took some time to answer a few questions about their stunning Southern Highlands wedding and their experience along the way.

1. Tell us a little bit about your story, how you meet and of course the proposal?

Nic and I met at Uni while playing for the same sport club. We then moved to tropical Cairns for a change of scenery. The proposal took place at Fitzroy Island just off the coast of Cairns in Far North Queensland with a ring that Nic had made and had kept a secret for over 6 months.

2. What made you decide to have your wedding down the South Coast?

All our family are from NSW and Nic’s family live in Bowral. Due to work commitments we needed to have our wedding in either January or July and Bowral is absolutely stunning all year round so it was an easy choice to go ahead with a January wedding there.

3. What venue did you choose and why?

Centennial Vineyards for its rustic and elegant charm. We loved the vineyard attraction, particularly given it was a January wedding. Also, the food at Centennial is to die for.

4. What style of wedding were you looking to achieve with table settings, florals and reception? Was there a certain look, style or vibe you were wanting to create?

No particular style but loved the ‘whimsical’ effect the weather gave our day. Many of the elements of our day such as the flowers and cake were done by family and friends which made for a really nice touch.

5. Tell us about the process you went about selecting your Southern Highlands wedding suppliers?

Living interstate this was a bit more challenging, we relied on friends and family for their honest opinion. We then spoke to our wedding suppliers on the phone and ultimately went with those who we received the best vibes from.
