Alison & Johnathan Wedding

With so much happening here and around the world right now, it was a joy to share some uplifting news yesterday when we drew the winner of Easy Weddings’ sixth competition, and gave away another incredible prize. With just under 4,000 tickets in our Grand Prize Draw, it was Alison of Penrith, NSW whose name we drew, and she and partner Jonathan now have $5,000 to spend with our new honeymoon and travel platform Easy Weddings Travel.

I ran out to Jonathan while I was still on the phone and started making gestures at him trying to get his phone and open Facebook so he could see the video and know what was going on.

This couple is already super organised, having booked many suppliers for their May 2021 nuptials, from a photographer, stylist+florist and hair and makeup artist, to their ceremony and reception venues and Maddison’s wedding gown. Alison and Jonathan’s wedding isn’t until May 2021, which will hopefully mean that events and travel have opened up by then. This gives them plenty of time to plan what to spend their $5,000 on! The Dawes Point Room also benefits from adjustable bi-fold walls that can be drawn across to lower the capacity, used to provide breakout areas, or opened to reveal a vibrant dancefloor later in the evening. The possibilities are endless! 

Perched on the pontoon overlooking the immaculate Walsh Bay, the Dawes Point Room is spacious and versatile with direct access onto the outdoor decking through glass doors. Bathed in natural light and decorated with understated paisley carpets, the large open-plan room can be designed in any layout that suits your style. Alison told us they’re keen to explore New Zealand on their honeymoon. They really want to go to Queenstown and explore the area. Onsen Spa and Nevis Swing are on our to-do list as well as a day trip to Aoraki. We’re after a balance between adventure and relaxing.

Intro to Wedding Photo

Jennifer Davidaz-Robinson and now-husband Tchad’s relationship may have gotten off to a slow start. But when they finally locked in a date, three-and-half-years after their first meeting and several attempts later, it progressed rather quickly. In fact, after dinner on their first date, Tchad took a chance and asked Jennifer to help him shop for a baby gift—for his best friend and eventual best man’s daughter, that is!On September 25, 2019, Jennifer and Tchad said “I do” at another historic venue: the Historic Adamson House and Malibu Lagoon Museum in Malibu, a location they selected for its oceanside views, temperate weather, and proximity to their families.

The ocean and museum were amazing backdrops for the ceremony and reception, the venue was picturesque yet intimate and our guests enjoyed themselves—and their drinks!

The couple says their planner made the planning process “as painless as possible,” but admit that choosing the venue was the easiest decision they made. “It was love at first sight,” Jennifer says. That said, their dream location came with restrictions: “We were limited by the venue and had to stay within their guidelines,” adds the bride. Jennifer and Tchad were able to invite 135 guests, and they made sure to wow each one with details such as a formal invitation suite from Zola and individual place cards calligraphed on gold-painted oyster shells.”Our look was formal, classic, timeless, elegant, and clean,” describes the bride.

Jennifer called on Tadashi Shoji to create a custom wedding dress. The designer is close friends with Tchad so they worked closely to dream up a stunning gown featuring a strapless neckline of silk satin and a full skirt with a sweeping train. Jennifer’s bridesmaid Shawn Barton is a stylist, and she was also a huge part of the design process, helping Jenn select fabric swatches and conceptualize the gown before her first appointment. Vintage Cartier chandelier earrings and white pumps by Le Silla completed her chic bridal look. While not shown, Jennifer used a traditional Korean jewelry box, a gift from her mother, to hold her engagement ring and band the day of the wedding. 

Last but by no means least, the Water Room is a striking waterfront event space with a glass wall looking out over Walsh Bay and onwards to Sydney Harbour. It’s an adaptable open-plan expanse with double-height ceilings and sophisticated decor enhanced with state of the art event technology.
