Sophie + Charlie
14th February 2020.
One of the most common enquiries we receive from a couple is their dream to get married
on a private property or country estate, especially if they are based in the city or a metropolitan area. Perhaps they are originally from the country and envisage their idyllic childhood as the backdrop to their big day, or sometimes it is simply they love escaping the city and want their guests to enjoy a destination wedding or minibreak.
At WTV we have the luxury of being able to provide couples with a range of property options if they do not have access to a suitable property to create the event they envisage. We wanted to feature one of the incredible properties that we exclusively partner with to create exceptionally beautiful days for our couples. Terrara House is a spectacular Federation Filagree mansion located in the Shoalhaven district, just a stone’s throw away from the idyllic village of Berry, beachside township of Gerroa and Seven Mile Beach as well as only a 30-minute drive from the Southern Highlands. Nestled on 17 acres of pristine land consisting of manicured gardens, hedged mazes, herb gardens and century-old trees, as well as being home to an array of farm animals – this property delivers on all aspects of a country destination wedding.
We recently had the pleasure of hosting Sophie and Charlie’s big day at Terrara House. A Sydney couple with family ties to the country, they visited Terrara House and instantly fell in love with how lush the grounds were. From the early stages of planning this wedding with Sophie and Charlie, we knew this would be a very memorable weekend for their guests. Accommodating up to 20 guests in the main house, the couple had their nearest and dearest stay with them in the lead up to their day and to celebrate afterward.
Sophie had the luxury of getting ready in the private day spa onsite, which really lends to a relaxing morning the day of your wedding. From there they had the most intimate of ceremonies in the ‘Love Garden’, followed by canapes and cocktails in the ‘Mirror Garden’ then moved into the premium clear marquee structure that had been beautifully styled by Belinda Brett of The Curated Life in Sydney.
Everything about this day captured the beauty and ease of a private property wedding – immersing yourself in the beautiful surroundings, enjoying the privacy, spending quality time with your guests and of course having FUN and partying well into the evening!
