Central Coast NSW based wedding vendors collaborate to showcase local creative talent and the wonderful offerings of newcastle wedding venue the stables of somersby. This exciting new boutique wedding and function venue is situated just north of Sydney in the picturesque hinterland of the NSW Central Coast. Discover a lovingly repurposed rustic barn located on a private equestrian property, offering the perfect rural retreat for your dream wedding. Also, surrounded by sprawling lawns, a spectacular dam with boathouse and jetty and framed by magnificent natural bushland, The Stables provides a multitude of stunning ceremony, reception and photo locations.

inspiration: Our colour palette was inspired by our love for Paella. Alex from The Wandering Waterhole teamed up with her mother in law Kerri from Pintxos and Paella to create a Spanish Inspired photoshoot focusing on their passion and love of food and drink. We wanted to offer a styled shoot that was romantic but alternative with an emphasis of red which we associate with love, passion, desire, heat, longing and sexuality.

highlights: At the end of big day shooting everyone hung around and had something to eat, it was the icing on the cake after everyone’s hard work to have a bowl of Paella and a glass of wine not only discussing our shoot but connecting with our community as well as creating new friends. Our Team of vendors were very cohesive and throughout the day we lifted one another ensuring we were all putting our best work forward.

did you face challenges + how did you overcome them?
Honestly, organisation. This was the first time I had organised a shoot involving so many vendors we were shooting two completely different looks on the same day but thankfully were I fell behind the eight ball another vendor would pick up the slack – honestly couldn’t have asked for a better team to work with. Everyone contributed to everyone’s work creating a unified collaboration.

what led you to decide on this venue? The Stables of Somersby is a unique and universal venue offering so much more than meets the eye with their new pavilion just being completed this venue offers it all. The Wandering Waterholes was launching their new bar Dusty Dan and consider The Stables of Somersby their home away from home, both vendor and venue work hand and hand and are the perfect duo. Dusty Dans subtle green pops when paired against the Rustic tones of The Stables.

favourite detail:
Everything!! What’s not to love about this shoot, each vendor worked together creating a beautifully romantic slightly alternative sexy shoot. The dresses provided by Final Touch Bridal were stunning, that shade of red lipstick by Taylor Beck Makeup accentuated the dress. The table setting styled by Everlong Events. The custom wedding signage by BB Collective with the single stem rose by Styled by K paired with the linen napkins by Ozone Express Laundrette completed the table setting. The food looked and tasted divine and you couldn’t complain when paired with Tamburlaine’s Organic Wines. The Stables of Somersby set the vibe with their rustic tones which highlighted The Wandering Waterholes' new float Dusty Dan not to mention that neon light supplied by Love Glows that said it all, perfectly captured by our photographers Will from Euphoria Films and Jen from Jen Burch Photography.

favourite moments: Unity and cohesiveness throughout the whole entire day. The shoot we produced shows emphasis on how important it is to pick the right vendors to create the perfect look for on the day.
