A Glittering Great Gatsby Affair
hitched.com.au’s Business Development Manager, Belinda
Andresson, went along to a pretty spectacular event last week!
You may remember my recent
blog about the Dockside Group’s
glamorous Great Gatsby event. Belinda was lucky enough to attend, and report
“The amazing event was hosted across three of the Dockside
Group’s venues, L’Aqua, Dockside and Star Room, where all of the rooms were set
up to give the couples an idea of what each venue could offer. The whole event
followed a glittering and decadent Great Gatsby theme, which included crystal
candelabras and mirror centrepieces, decorated with feathers, pearls and floral
arrangements straight from the 1920s”.
L’Aqua and Dockside primarily featured
photographers (including photo booths), stationery suppliers, florists,
bridalwear including gowns and headpieces and some amazing ice sculptures.
Belinda set to work meeting the best the wedding industry had to offer, and
snapping their wares so we could share them with you!
