Modern Vintage Glamour at Fountaindale Manor

Alex and Malcolm celebrated their wedding day in the gorgeous Southern Highlands, with a beautiful Modern Vintage Glamour theme. With the ceremony and reception both held at Fountaindale ManorVibrant Photography captured all the excitement, romance and style of the day... 

Settling on a modern vintage theme, the couple called in experts to help them create a cocktail bar style reception in the gardens of their venue.

With chandeliers draped through the trees, vintage furniture on a black and white floor, and gorgeous urns filled with feathers, their dream reception was realised.

The couple’s wedding was very much a family affair. A family member made Alex’s dress, and her cousin dressed her hair. Malcolm’s cousin made their wedding rings, and Malcolm’s mother created a delicious wedding cake.

And as a very special touch, Malcolm’s father supplied an Oakland Roadster – purchased by Malcolm’s grandfather in 1929, to be part of the reception’s modern vintage backdrop.

Sadly, Alex’s father died some years ago, so Alex’s mum escorted her down the aisle. The couple were married by a family friend and after an emotional ceremony, the party began.

A photo booth, a bowl of Kinder Surprises, great food and a fabulous band set the scene for a unique and fun filled reception that Alex and Malcolm’s guests still talk about.
