Wedding dance en pointe

TWA_Mirra_103Graceful elegance, flowing beauty, floating on a cloud. They’re all phrases we associate with wedding gowns, but they’re also words that apply equally to that most exquisite of art forms – ballet!
Ballet and weddings have a unique kind of synergy that appears to link them intrinsically. Perhaps it is the style of the dress, with many wedding gowns resembling ballet tutus, or is it the commonality of fabrics – lace, chiffon, tulle? Maybe it is the way ballerinas and girls in wedding gowns move, with a magical, flowing or floating appearance that draws similarities. Or it could just be that both demand perfection to achieve maximum impact. During our recent shoot at Mirra Private Dining and Events in the Valley we put a ballet dancer in a range a stunning, balletically inspired gowns and let the magic happen.

Elegant side of the Hamilton Hotel

Corrines wedding 171You may know it as the ‘Hammo’ – a place for Friday drinks and a great steak – but there’s a lot more to this venue than you may think and we’d like you to take a look at it’s more sophisticated side! We were recently invited to attend the Hamilton Hotel Wedding Open Day and discovered an elegant and engaging wedding venue that ticks the boxes of the most demanding bride.

We had a discussion with Melissa Hislop, their experienced wedding coordinator, to find out more about the hotel, and were very pleasantly surprised by the the look, feel and flexibility this venue offers.

The Hamilton Hotel boasts two function rooms, both of which are spacious, and offer two very different styling opportunities. The River Room is light and airy, with a comfortable capacity for up to 70 seated guests, or up to 200 for a cocktail reception. The second option is the H Lounge, which offers a very open plan reception for up to 150 seated guests or a massive 700 for cocktails. The benefit of this gorgeous room is the lounge and bar area. Decorated in black and gold, you get the feel of opulence and space to create separate zones for your wedding guests to mingle and chat. Then there is the added benefit of the marquee area. This can be used to keep the beautifully styled reception room a mystery right to the last moment and allowing every guest to experience the wow factor as they enter your choice of reception rooms.

Melissa is happy to assist you with as much or as little of the details of your planning as you would like. If you need a recommendation for a wedding supplier she has a list of amazing suppliers who will fit your requirements.

Our recommendation is too have another look at this venue, with all inclusive packages you may be as surprised at how perfect this venue could be for your special day.

Watch out for their next wedding open day, or contact Melissa for your own viewing.
