Over the past couple of years, we’ve observed the increase in the number of couples choosing to quietly tie the knot at an exotic location instead of going the traditional route. A smaller destination wedding is so much more intimate and can create the best remembered memories.


Planning a small destination wedding does not mean compromising your dream wedding. It just means a smaller guest list. With lesser guests as compared to a traditional wedding at home, your budget would be a bit more flexible to allow you special touches on décor and unique details, elements that can make your wedding one-of-a-kind.

A perfect example of a couple with the same mindset is one of our recent newlyweds, Lizzy and Brian. The lovely couple tied the knot on the idyllic Seven Mile Beach and later on proceeded to Grand Old House for a star-lit reception.




Upon entrance, guests were welcomed with a custom made message, “In you I’ve found the love of my life, and my closest, truest friend”. How romantic!

A beautiful bamboo arch structure, accented with willows, soft pink and ivory toned flowers and adorned with swags of crystal and miniature crystal chandeliers created the focal piece of the wedding.




The Grand Old House gazebo was transformed into a crystal wonderland, including crystal curtains, crystal chandelier and crystal candle holders. A very special part of the décor was the memory chair for the Father of the Groom.








No matter how small a wedding, the special touches and stunning décor are well worth it. This couple definitely proved to us that less means more!

Congratulations Lizzy and Brian and thank you for giving us the opportunity to be a part of your small yet stylish celebration!
