Jess and James’ Plunkett Villa wedding in Tamborine, QLD, was as stylish as it was simple and down-to-earth.
The sprawling 1869 country estate, Plunkett Villa, welcomed the couple and their close-knit crew of 120 to celebrate love, alfresco-style.
Jess and James’ April 10, 2021 nuptials were hosted outdoors on a clear blue-sky day beneath a rustic baby’s breath arbour. Rolling mountains and roaming horses created a homely country backdrop. Jess graced a contemporary Karen Willis Holmes gown; the perfect mix of fitted and flowy for an outdoor affair, and James levelled up in a classic black tuxedo.
Following the open-air ceremony, the laidback duo and their guests enjoyed a drink or two from Plunkett’s resident caravan bar. An acoustic duo performed live tunes while guests amused themselves with lawn games and nibbled on cocktail food.
The couple’s eight-member wedding squad helped them pose for loved up photos around the historic 195-acre property. Come reception time, the clear-walled marquee offered an outside-in dining experience for guests to feast on a delicious buffet meal. After hilarious MC introductions and all-emotions speeches, it was back out under the stars for dancing and a beaming sparkler send-off.
We really wanted our wedding to be down-to-earth, nothing too over the top, something homely and authentic, but still nice. We’d always wanted to get married and have our dancefloor outside. Plunkett Villa was the perfect location for that. We envisioned our guests having a relaxed afternoon with live music and heaps of space to play lawn games. The owners of this property where so lovely and accommodating. They wanted to make our day very special and did everything to make that happen.
