Gretta & Greg’s Wedding – Bringing country style to one of the World’s most iconic venues!
Let’s start with their love story!
What was your favourite part of the day?
What was the best advice you received leading up to the day?
G&G: A lot of birdies advised us to “do want you want to do, it’s your day”, which is much harder to implement then it sounds. All we really wanted was for everyone to just have a good time. Being able to bring together our thoughts on what we wanted and communicate to the suppliers was the key.
Country style meets iconic Sydney beauty
How did you choose your suppliers?
Event Birdie: Located right on the harbour foreshore with one of the best views in town, the Opera Point Marquee is one of Sydney’s most popular wedding venues. What Event Birdie loves most about this space is that it is a blank canvas – you can truly create any atmosphere you want – even a country wedding!
Designs By Boo Shi (flowers/ styling)
Event Birdie: We love to see how florals and foliage have been used to style this wedding. The collection of pinks, greens, yellows and whites give this wedding a country garden atmosphere. The fairy lights and hanging tea-lights give the space a secret garden feel once the sun goes down. We love love love!
ARIA Catering (oh the food!)

What have your family and friends been raving about since the big day?
Gretta’s sister, Breanna, serenaded the couple for their first dance, supported by Vibe Wedding Band.
And capturing the day?
G&G: We met with a few photographers, and were after someone who would both take the standard family-shot (for our parents & aunts/uncles) but would also capture all those subtle and casual shots that we knew would best represent our day. After meeting Milton and seeing his work we knew it was the right fit.
During the reception Milton took us both out for some shots near the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. In one shot he had us close our eye, and place our foreheads together while he took some photos under the Opera House sails, while the wedding was continuing on in the background. It was a beautiful & timeless moment.
