Jodie and Nick – a Merribee wedding

Jodie and Nick wanted a really relaxed, fun day for their guests and themselves, and as this video shows, that’s exactly what they had! (A few nervous moments for the groom aside.) The Tuscany-like setting of Merribee in Nowra (recently voted one of NSW’s best wedding venues) made a beautiful backdrop to the ceremony and then the afternoon reception. I love how Jodie could keep an eye on what was going on outside from the privacy of her room! To entertain the guests, Jodie and Nick organised some games and a photo station – which were almost as popular as the bar. (A pregnant Natalie from this wedding was involved in the day as one of Jodie’s best friends and make-up artist).
