Tijana & Andrew Intimate Vineyard Wedding

Tijana and Andrew decided on an intimate wedding at Rowlee Wines Vineyard in Orange to celebrate thier love.

With thier parents as witnesses and their son as the couple’s attendant, it was a beautifully special wedding.

The bride arrived in Drew’s dad’s classic white Holden HR where her groom and son were waiting.  The bride and groom then walked into the ceremony together to the acoustic sounds and singing of Genni Kane and Jon Wilby.

Following the ceremony, the music continued and the celebrations started with a bottle of Rowlee Cuvee being popped and the cake being cut.

To add a personal touch to thier ceremony Andrew and Tijana included special poems they had chosen that they read to each other.

Andrew selected “Fool For You” written by John Butler Trio.

So I stepped up to the plate to a place I thought I’d never be So I’m thanking you today because of you I am now me Cold days them dark and blue when rain was our only friend For all that, we’ve been through and will go through again For that I say, I will come and I will stand and I will live my life beside you I’m a proud, a proud man, but all the same I’m just a fool, I’m a fool for you

Tijana chose, “I carry your heart with me” written by E. E. Cummings

I carry your heart with me
I carry it in my heart
I am never without it (anywhere
I go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling
I fear no fate for you are my fate, my sweet
I want no world for beautiful you are my world, my true
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you here is the deepest secret nobody knows (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
I carry your heart
I carry it in my heart

The Wedding Party Looks

Tijana’s look was a romantic lace dress, knee-high to go with our relaxed, unique, and intimate ceremony. Andrew had a relaxed elegance in a black and white vest and shirt. Tijana and Andrew’s son was in a matching outfit to his dad.

The Wedding Theme & Decor

The theme for the ceremony was natural, relaxed, rustic, and elegant with handmade corsages to match Tijana’s flower bouquet.

The Ceremony

Tijana and Andrew’s had their parents as witnesses and thier son Ethan as the attendant.

Why It Was Important For Tijana To Have A Good Celebrant

Tanya has been the best celebrant we could have ever asked for – genuine, warm, enthusiastic, clever, supportive, efficient, and full of positive energy – a perfect celebrant, really.

Special And Unique Touches

Framed photos of Tijana and Andrews’s late parents were placed on the ritual table to remember them and to represent their presence at the wedding.

Tijana and Andrew also included a Sand Ceremony Ritual.
Tijana and Andrews’s parents’ sand was added first to represent their support and the continued love they have for the family. Tijana and Andrew then added some of thier sands to represent the essence of all they are and the gifts they brought to the union. Ethan then added his sand representing him as a unique and beloved child. Finally, Tijana and Andrew added the remainder of their sands over Ethan’s to mark their intention to seal thier family in an environment of unconditional love.

Personalising The Wedding

Tijana made her wedding bouquet, the hair flowers, table flowers, and corsages.

They also had musicians Genni Kane and Jon Wilby playing acoustic guitar for the ceremony and the celebrations following the wedding.

Wedding Day Advice From The Bride

Make it your own, simplify, focus on the essence of the day – it’s about your forever love, and love doesn’t stress. Go with the flow and embrace any imperfections of the day as the special touches that make it all more real & true.

AboutTanya McDonald
It goes without saying that being a marriage celebrant is an honour and a privilege. I have loved weddings and what they represent for as long as I can remember. Since becoming a celebrant I am able to fulfill my passion and at the same time treasure each opportunity I have to work with couples to help them bring their dreams and ideas into life through their ceremonies. I have been a fully authorised marriage celebrant since 2014 and I have helped couples enjoy thier journey to the altar since then. If you need a celebrant, I would love to discuss your ceremony with you.
