Emma & BJ's Wedding Day

Emma & BJ wedding was on the 27th of March 2021 and they were lucky enough that they dodged any Covid restrictions. Having been together for nearly 14 years their wedding was a long time coming if you ask Emma. Lucky for Emma she just happens to be the general manager at Feel Good Events so she had plenty of experience planning and decorating weddings. This was lucky for BJ as well as Emma took total control and I think all BJ had to organize was suits and transport to the wedding.

Emma  had a pretty clear idea on what she did and didnt want her wedding to be which really helped with the planning. She knew she wanted a tropical theme and a cocktail style wedding. One of the key things both Emma and BJ wanted for the wedding was for it to be relaxed but also a fun and exciting party. The night went off without a hitch and guests had a great time!

The ceremony and reception were held at the Ranelagh Club in Mt Eliza. It was a beautiful spot looking over Port Phillip bay.

Emma & BJ's Wedding Ceremony

The Ceremony was originally planned to be on a grass area at the venue out in the open. Unfortunately, the weather had other ideas! Luckily Emma working in events knew that she had to have a plan B when it came to outdoor weddings. The week of the wedding the weather was not looking good so a marquee that was on standby was then organized to be set up on the Saturday.

On the day of the wedding the heavens opened up in the afternoon but luckily enough the weather came good just before the ceremony was about to start. The marquee was still of great value as the wind had picked up and it still sheltered the guests. Everything went well with the ceremony and there was definitely lots of laughs.

Emma & BJ's Wedding Reception

The reception was the perfect venue for a relaxed cocktail style wedding with a tropical theme. Looking out over the water the venue had a great mix of indoor/outdoor space. It all felt like one open area. This was great for keeping guests together but also for creating a great party atmosphere later in the night.

When it came to creating a tropical theme Feel Good Events went all out. With a team of 10 crew arriving at 9am, everyone worked hard to transform the venue and be ready by 4pm. The team hung tropical greenery and floral displays above the dance floor. There were also large tropical greenery walls behind the DJ and above the bar. 

The team sectioned off the indoor area to condense the space and create a food area. We also added in a large tropical tree! Surrounded by the tree was a large grazing table for guests to pick at during the night. We used lots of tropical plants, flowers, and candles throughout the space. We also installed a large fairy light curtain to add to the atmosphere.

To start the night, there was a live singer playing chilled classics to set the mood. To bring the party to life later in the night the DJ kicked in playing all the party classics to keep the guests on the dance floor. One of the main highlights of the night was the Brazilian dancers which performed a short show and then got everyone on the dance floor. Emma and BJ undoubtedly had one of the best days of their lives! We also received plenty of positive feedback from the guests. A lot of them said it was one of the best weddings they’d been to!
