Georgia + Richard – surprise wedding at Glasshaus

Georgia + Richard

Under the guise of “Sunday afternoon drinks”, Georgia and Richard said “I do”.

The pair had invited family and friends to an afternoon engagement party at Glasshaus Outside– a garden oasis in the heart of Richmond.

They had become engaged only two months prior, but over the last six years they’d travelled the world, welcomed a beautiful baby boy into the world and established a loyal, loving partnership. Georgia admitted: “it was probably time to make it all ‘official’!”

Georgia and Richard wanted an intimate, relaxed and fun wedding, without some of the stresses of putting on a large event. It was also extremely important to the couple to ensure their gorgeous son was a part of the occasion – an afternoon event was the perfect solution. They wanted something “that mimicked a Sunday session on a long weekend,” Georgia told us,

So, they decided to surprise their guests by turning their engagement party into the main event!

To help them create a casual and festive atmosphere, we set up a grazing table that overflowed with delicious antipasto, cured meats, a leg of ham, oysters, cheeses and breads. Such a delicious spread always helps to style an event, while encouraging conversation among guests who are free to help themselves.

We also circulated hot canapés, and towards the end of the afternoon, a selection of sweeter treats.

“It was important that the catering not only be enticing, but complement the space and style of the wedding,” said Georgia

“We were expertly advised and consulted when building our menu. Staff on the day were professional and fun – and none of our guests were left with empty glasses or tummies!”

— That’s always our goal! That, and to work with amazing couples like Georgia and Richard to help create their perfect wedding day.

The couple also wanted to highlight the amazing contribution of their celebrant Anthony Cribbes – “he was highly entertaining and represented Richie and I as a couple so well that many guests assumed he was a great mate.” said Georgia.

Congratulations again!
