Sylvia & Thomas | The Grove

As with every client, we design wedding stationery for, the lead up to the wedding is always met with great anticipation – not only by the wedding party but by us too.

There is printing to be done, last minute changes to guest lists and seating plans, double checking that every guest has a place-card, and finally making sure all the reception stationery gets to the venue in one perfectly intact package on time. From having first completed invitations six months earlier, it is always so exciting to see how everything comes together on the wedding day!

So when Sylvia and Thomas sent us photos of their wedding day we were mesmerised! Perhaps it was the floral centrepieces by Bower Botanicals hanging from the marquee ceiling oh-so-beautifully, or perhaps was something to do with the gorgeous bride looking absolutely stunning in her bridal gown and headpiece by our lovely friends at MXM Couture… those stunning creations really did capture our attention.

Only a few short months earlier we were delighted to have had Sylvia walk through our studio doors and commission us to design beautiful custom letterpress wedding stationery. What appealed to the Bride was our monogram which forms a part of the Yesterday Creative brand, so we set about to design an adaptation of our own logo to be featured on Sylvia and Thomas’ wedding invitation. This monogram with custom designed S & T typography for their initials formed a brand for their own wedding and flowed from the invitation to matching letterpress reply cards, information cards, laser cut swing tags and the back of the matching letterpress envelopes, right through to reception stationery and styling on the day. With a classic font for event details set in a slightly more modern typographic layout, the invitation was letterpressed in metallic copper ink into beautiful 600gsm Gmund cotton. The invitation design was brought to life on Print Day before the client’s own eyes as the Bride came to see the first impressions of her invitation being printed in the studio on our 1960s Heidelberg Platen—this is where, all of a sudden, the wedding starts to feel quite real!

Liaising with the team at Byron Bay Weddings for Sylvia and Thomas’ dinner celebration, custom reception stationery was designed to bring in the monogram and classic charm from the wedding invitations to each table setting. A beautiful seating chart was completed along with laser cut circular table numbers featuring the couple’s monogram and set in a brass place card holder to help guests find their way. Each place-setting was finished with a menu and place-cards tied together with twine positioned neatly inside the fold of a linen napkin—the bronze ink of the printing complimenting the rattan charger plate and gold cutlery supplied by Hampton Event Hire.

High on a hill and overlooking the beautiful Byron Bay and surrounding Hinterland, Sylvia and Thomas celebrated their wedding at The Grove in Coopers Shoot. This property was the perfect setting to celebrate with their family and friends as they enjoyed gorgeous late Spring weather during an outdoor ceremony, followed by a stunningly decorated marquee reception for 160 guests. We were delighted to have had the opportunity to work with such wonderful clients and suppliers, and needless to say, everything about the day looked stunning!

Forget Me Not

Forget Me Not Weddings is the ultimate country destination situated in the Byron Bay hinterland, 10 minutes from Byron Bay and 5 minutes to boutique Bangalow.

On a scenic hundred acre working cattle farm, it is very private and tranquil. Overlooking a large lake with water lilies and a little row boat beside an old wooden jetty. Surrounded by prizewinning gardens and rainforest plantings. Turn a corner and find another secret spot, relax and listen to the running water of the natural little waterfalls amongst the rainforest.

Choices of ceremony spots, maybe overlooking the water or under the shade of the trees perhaps in front of the private outdoor chapel?

There is a large level grassed area to have your tipi’s or marquee. The site can comfortably accommodate 300 guests. A toilet block with rustic exterior and 5 star interior is provided. The farm with cattle, horses and the post and rail fence in the background frames the tipi’s which overlook the gardens and water, such a gorgeous view. As night falls, the atmosphere changes with all the lights reflecting onto the water. A magical place.

For the smaller wedding there is an undercover deck beside the homestead pool. This caters for about 36 seated or 50 standing guests and is a spectacular setting for canapés.

Our accommodation is an ideal place for your wedding party to get ready. It is also a special place to relax, reflect and enjoy after your special day. Beautifully furnished with period pieces. Air-conditioned bedroom with a comfortable iron bed. The accommodation includes an amazing western-styled saloon bar with billiards table, pinball machine and arcade system. Contains a separate bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. There is a swimming pool, undercover deck and BBQ area, even an outdoor fire pit to keep the night warm and cosy. Sleeps 2-4 with one queen size bed and an extra double bed if required.

Forget Me Not Farm is a truly beautiful country location and is both private and spectacular. This is the ideal place for your destination wedding.

I would love to be able to share it for your special day.
