Jess & Mat’s Real Wedding Inspired Us with Their Love at Tailrace!

The Wedding Ceremony 

Jess & Mat’s gorgeous wedding was something special. They wanted to keep things simple and really focus on the celebration of their love and commitment to one another.

Their ceremony was held on our Willow Lawn where Jess walked through the trees and down the aisle towards her soon to be husband. Mat waited for his gorgeous bride in front of our A frame arbour, decorated with native leaves and flowers.

After saying their heartfelt “I do’s” the couple began the celebrations early with a pre-reception on the lawn.

The Wedding Reception… 

Candles and more native leaves and flowers adorned their reception tables in our Tamar Room. Continuing on with the native theme, Jess & Mat cut their cake with a gorgeous engraved wooden knife. This special cake-knife is one of the details the couple will be able to treasure forever. They will be able to use it on birthdays and other special occasions and reminisce on their wedding day.

Jess told us it was “a wonderful wedding we will remember forever” and our gorgeous event planners helped them feel “like planning a wedding was easy”.

Creating the Perfect Space for Their Wedding Reception…

One of their priorities was to create a space that felt intimate while still having space for the buffet, dance-floor and bar. They had their heart set on our Tamar Room but it was going to be a tight fit with the number of family and friends attending the reception.

To accomodate Jess and Mat’s vision we opened up the wall between the cafe and the Tamar room. The bridal curtain was then used to section off the rest of the cafe. This created enough space for the dance-floor without sacrificing the intimacy of the evening.

We love being flexible and creating solutions to your problems.

Thailand Honeymoon Giveaway… 

Jess & Mat were also the lucky winner of our Thailand Honeymoon Giveaway. The honeymoon giveaway included a 5 night stay at Club Med where they treated “Mathew and I like we were royals”.  Jess told us, “All I can say is that we felt like the luckiest people in the world after winning an experience like this and are super grateful for the opportunity Tailrace gave us. Thank You.”

We’re so glad you had a wonderful wedding day and honeymoon!
