Beautiful Vineyard Chapel Wedding: Genevieve & Josh
We really wanted a simple style wedding with a bit of a rustic feel, just simple, but beautiful! I always imagined getting married outside but as soon as Josh and I walked into Immerse’s vineyard chapel we were sold – it felt so magical in there, we actually didn’t even know what to say – we were a bit speechless! We also envisioned a small and intimate wedding as we both don’t love being the centre of attention. We just wanted to have the people we love most be there to celebrate us!

I loved my wedding gown! But it was also an area I didn’t want to spend a ridiculous amount of money on. Luv Bridal has a large range of gowns for reasonable prices. Luv Bridal stocks Madi Lane gowns and all of their designs are stunning. I wanted something different which is why I loved the unique lace on my dress. I also wanted something loose-fitting, so I knew I would feel comfortable on the day.
Immerse is such a stunning venue that it doesn’t need too much to make it look amazing. For tables, we added grey tablecloths and had square tables for guests and one long bridal table. We decorated guest tables with square wooden flower boxes, tealight candles, white napkins, round names cards and wine corks as the guest gifts. On the bridal table, we had flowers all along the front of the table and pillar candles.
Our flowers were consistent throughout the venue and the bouquets. We wanted simple green and white with a pop of colour which we chose to be orange!
Our wedding cake was made by Caked in Mud who is absolutely amazing. The bottom tier was a marble design with a plain white second tier. We then just had white flowers and a black topper from Etsy with “Mr & Mrs Squillace”. The best part about the cake though was getting to eat it – it didn’t just look beautiful but was so delicious too! The bottom layer was chocolate mud and with chocolate frosting and the top layer was red velvet with cream cheese frosting. Immerse were kind enough to put some back in our room after the reception was over and we were eating it for breakfast the next day!
One of my favourite moments of the day was the sunset photos – the whole day was so fun, but also so busy, and it feels like it flies by. The sunset photos meant we had 15 minutes with just us, and it was so peaceful and quiet at the top of the hill. I feel like we really got to soak it all in and we have some amazing photos!
