Elegant marquee wedding allows for 400-head guest list

Wedding: 20/12/2014

Posted by Kellie | 23 July, 2016

Elaine Sequeira and Reuben Dias celebrated their marriage with just shy of 400 guests.

That’s one hell of a party to throw – and it wasn’t easy finding a venue to accommodate their loved ones, some of which travelled from around the world to be there. “We decided to hire an area of the foreshore at South Perth on a beautiful December evening with the Perth city skyline as a stunning backdrop,” explains Elaine.

The couple, aged 28 and 29 respectively, married on December 20, 2014 with a theme of modern elegance. Their ceremony at St Benedict’s Catholic Church in Applecross was followed by the reception which was created with the help of a wedding planner. “Our wedding designer came up with the idea to have a series of interconnecting marquees in a semi-circle with the dance floor as the central focal point,” describes the bride. The set-up allowed for their large number of guests and created the party atmosphere the pair were really searching for.

And if you’ve been questioning whether or not to get a videographer, take some of Elaine’s advice: “We were so glad we had a videographer at our wedding as it’s the one thing that we’ve gone back to the most since our wedding day to re-live all the memories,” she smiles.
