Prepare yourself, dear readers, because you’re about to have your socks knocked off by this wedding at one of our new favorite venues, Sydney Polo Club, photographed by none other than Lara Hotz. Jam-packed with color, poms, amazing flowers from The Sisters, and a dress to die for, we guarantee you won’t be able to make it through without smiling from ear to ear!
From the couple, Gena and Tony: Our wedding was at the Sydney Polo Club, about an hour away from where we live. We wanted to have something a bit out of the ordinary (this can be hard with a big Jewish wedding but we knew we did not want a hotel reception room) and not expect people to have to travel too far. We had our ceremony and dance floor inside the barn on the farm and connected a marquee to the side where the guests were seated.
The barn doors slid open to connect the two spaces. We wanted a relaxed feel while still observing the traditional side. We wanted it to be a little rustic, a little Mexican fiesta and a big colourful party. We didn’t have a colour scheme — rather every colour imaginable! If you would like a description it would have to be “a Mexican Fiesta in a barn.” We spent many hours making our own decorations, including: cutting & gluing 1200 coloured ribbons to make the chair decorations as well as emptying 60 cans of limited edition Andy Warhol Campbells soup cans to serve as flower holders for the table.
