This wasn’t an ordinary wedding! Danni & Dane envisioned their wedding to be Rustic, Outdoors, Casual & Interactive, Comfortable & Fun. Not only was it just that but the celebration was heightened due to being a New Years Eve Wedding!
The ceremony was held underneath the grand oak tree at Heide Park Museum. It was the perfect outdoor setting where no arch or other backdrop was needed. Feel Good Events supplied the comfortable outdoor padded chairs along with the outdoor umbrella’s which kept guests under shade in areas where they were unable to take advantage of the over arching branches from the oak tree.
The reception was held at Danni’s family home which easily had the space to cater for a 18m x 6m marquee. The Marquee was given character with the addition of overhead draping, festoon lighting and rustic furniture. The marquee was perfectly positioned in a central position. 1 side was walled off (behind the band) but the rest of the marquee was left open to provide guests free access to other areas of the outdoor reception area.
3 distinct areas were created on the 3 open sides of the marquee. 1 being an outdoor lawn games area which provided pallet lounge furniture for guests to kick off their heels and relax in comfort. Festoon Lighting was hung overhead which provided a relaxed but elegant lighting into the space once the sun began to set.
Running on the opposite side of this area to the marquee was the bar area. Guests could order from the Caravan Bar then take a seat on the rustic wine barrel furniture. Green astro turf was laid down to cover up the plain concrete underneath and large LOVE light up letters completed the casual outdoor drinking space and provided the lighting along with creating a stunning backdrop when night fell.
The last side of the open marquee was left for the Food Truck.
With all aspects of the wedding working together and furniture being perfectly positioned, Danni & Dane’s vision for a clean, casual, fun outdoor rustic wedding was made!
Dane & Danni celebrated counting down to 2019 as newlyweds while being surrounded by close friends and family in a transformed space on their family property.
Congratulations you two!!

Behind The Scenes
Setting up of the marquee (including flooring, draping, and lighting) began 4 days before the event with a team of 6. Furniture and styling products were then delivered 2 days prior to the event and placed into position.
All aspects (which Feel Good Events could control) were completed days before the wedding. This gave the bride and groom 1 less thing to worry about leading up to thier dig day and allowed a buffer just in case something did go wrong (which it didn't).
The marquee along with all furniture and styling products were completely packed down on 1 day (2nd of January) It was a completely stress-free experience for the client and the everyone had an amazing wedding and NYE!
