Shabby Chic Wedding Ideas

Hello gelato lovers!!

We are celebrating our 1 year anniversary in the wedding Industry by sharing with you our tops picks for everything you or someone you know may need to make that big day memorable and unique.

Our gelato cart has been the icing on the cake (dessert metaphor!) at so many differently themed weddings over the last year. As you would expect, those with one great idea/element usually bring two, three, four, five or even, six to the table at the same time.

We have been both a weddings elegant highlight, or the dessert link in a large display of individual laid back food options.

We come home from most events discussing what we would add to our ever forming “hypothetical second wedding”.

We now have some key elements planned out, which we are very excited to share with you:

Our theme, of course, falls under the raging trend of the stylish, yet relaxed air of the “Shabby Chic” Wedding.

~ Our venue choice was found by Andrea late last year. It is a large barn in the Barwon Heads area, with simple, rustic finishes that beautifully allow you to put in place your own styling. The area is like a crisp white canvas, mounted inside a rich red gum frame, aged with the salty breeze from the nearby beaches.  ~ THE BARN

~ Just before Christmas, we stumbled upon these guys at Happy Camper Pizza. Their renovated Airstream Camper is an absolute standout in both design and vibe when it comes to portable food. Like our carts, with the right styling, this Camper can blend in with abounding elegance, or find it’s place next to a bonfire circle of mismatched folding chairs. Take one look at their gallery, and forget the Camper and it’s atmosphere, you will be sold on every single picture of their pizza! ~ HAPPY CAMPER PIZZA

~ Being placed next to these guys at One Fine Day 2013, was the beginning of a great catering combination in our eyes. Little did we know the number of couples that felt the same way. It wasn’t long before we found ourselves standing side by side, as Daniel from Beer Gypsies helped us get ourselves out of a very sticky (muddy!) situation at one weddings bush venue earlier this year! Beside bringing their stylish portable bar and it’s outstanding choice of delicious beverages, these guys bring that kind of professional fun that adds flavour to any type of wedding night.

So there it is, in the weekends of weddings upon weddings, the three elements that have resonated with us from the moment we first spotted them, till now writing this post. We’ll be aiming to get them altogether for that second wedding of ours, alongside a paddock full of gelato carts and a few other treasures we are yet to find…and you’re all invited!
