A marquee on Echuca's historic wharf

By Bride and Groom 31 May 2016

A marquee on Echuca’s historic wharf was the unique location for Aimee and Jarrod’s wedding celebration. The couple enjoyed a sit-down dinner with close family and friends amid views of majestic river red gums and iconic paddle-steamers.

RELIVING YESTER-YEAR: “I would describe my theme as being a little bit rustic and vintage combined,” Aimee said. Her ideas for the wedding theme started to come together after spending many hours looking through magazines, Pinterest and Facebook. “I really just hoped for something simple but beautiful.”

GRATEFUL: “We were very privileged, thanks to the owners from Oscar W’s Wharfside Restaurant, to be able to have a sit-down dinner reception on the Echuca Wharf,” Aimee said. “This was not easy for the owners to organise but they worked extremely hard to make our reception amazing. We can’t thank them enough.”

Photographer Liz Arcus walked the newlyweds to one of the pubs along the wharf where the couple sat and had a drink, and reflected on the day. “I think this was when we really relaxed and started to enjoy ourselves,” Aimee said. “We look back on the day now and have so many happy thoughts and remember how relaxed we both were.
