Chrissy and Bryce Stoltenberg
Wedding Date: 11th November 2017
Venue: Tangaratta Vineyards
Like every other iconic couple throughout the Tamworth area Chrissy and Bryce met at the now closed Imperial Hotel seven years ago. Bryce decided to pop the question while on a family holiday at the Whitsundays. After dinner Bryce asked Chrissy for a walk along the beach. While Chrissy was snapping away at the breath taking sunset she turned to find Bryce on one knee and the rest is history.
From our very first meeting with Chrissy back in 2016 we knew they both had envisioned a very relaxed environment for their guest to enjoy one big party. Formalities were kept to a minimum to suit the very low key couple, with clear ideas of crisp whites and greenery flowing throughout.
The Venue selection was an easy one for Chrissy and Bryce, with Tangaratta Vineyards ticking all of their boxes. Having one location for all activities was high on their list and Tangaratta Vineyards provided just that. With the large task of finding a venue out of the way Chrissy could now focus on making her vision come to life. Opting for our classic White Tiffany chairs paired with touches of timber from our Wagon Wheel lights adorned with varying coloured foliages. With a rather larger bridal table taking pride in the centre of the room the mood was set for an unforgettable night.
Chrissy was lucky enough in having some guiding girlfriends help her in choosing the right vendors. The couple knew they wanted approachable vendors who are passionate about what they do and after following both Ivory Lane and Kait Photographer for some time, the rest just fell into place.
The one bit of advice Chrissy has for all brides still in the planning process is 'Don't expect everything to be perfect - which I struggled with. Everything works out in the end how it was suppose to. Make sure you enjoy it and have fun!'
The end result was breath taking with beautiful photos from Kait Barker, just as their journey started.

Lisa and Will Childs
Wedding Date: Saturday 28th October 2017
Venue: Tangaratta Vineyards
Guest Numbers: 95
Lisa and Will met through a mutual friend who did all that she could to convince Lisa to go out on a date with Will. She eventually gave in and they were wed 7 years later. Will proposed whilst the couple was on holiday in Hamilton Island. The proposal took place on the famous Whitehaven Beach after a helicopter ride, picnic lunch and a swim in the crystal clear waters of Far North Queensland.
We met with Lisa early in 2016 to help assist with some hire items for their wedding.. Newly engaged, excited, and with clear ideas for her big day, we couldn't wait to help bring it all together to ensure their day was absolute perfection. Lisa envisioned a fun, relaxed atmosphere, executed in a timeless and effortless way.
Lisa and Will chose our dark wenge coloured Bentwood chairs with our feature vintage ladder lighting adorned with textured foliages and gold footed vases complete with antique coloured roses - we knew this young lady had a vision. We met with Lisa multiple times throughout the planning process, tweaking and changing details as the months went on.
Will and Lisa chose Tangaratta Vineyards to hold their wedding day festivities. They always knew they wanted an outdoor ceremony with lush lawn for the guests to mingle and relax with a wet weather backup plan. Tangaratta Vineyards offered all this and more and after their first visit to the venue they knew it was the perfect location for them.
Lisa and Will chose their vendors based on how their ideas aesthetically matched theirs. They wanted vendors who were fun and easy to work with who also made the whole process of planning a wedding as stress free as possible!
Lisa has some advice for all of you still planning your wedding day "Find you style and stick to it - Pinterest was my best friend, try not to worry about the little things and enjoy the day because it goes way too quickly!"
Our journey with Lisa has been more than a pleasure and we are so glad to share Lisa and Will's amazing wedding day with stunning photos by Jason Corroto.
The end result was flawless, and we couldn't be happier.
