REAL WEDDING: Jasmin + Josh – Seacliff Gerringong
An espresso martini bar – need we say more? This south coast wedding had all the ingredients to guarantee a good time.
Words by Karina Lowndes
28 April 2020

Initially, it was the epic styling at this NSW south coast wedding venue, Seacliff Gerrigong that won us over. But a closer look made us realise the best bit about this wedding was the bride and groom and their bridal party – never before have we seen a photo session look like so much fun! Their grand entrance with VB stubbies in tow made for some feel-good snaps too.

Check out the entire celebration below.

Hey guys, in a nutshell, how would you describe your wedding day?

A relaxed, coastal vibe with really, really incredible florals and decor. A fun, modern wedding with personal touches to perfectly represent us as a couple.

Jasmin, what did you expect was going to be your favourite part in the lead-up? What did it end up being?

Josh’s face as I walked hand in hand down the aisle with my Dad! That was the moment I most looked forward to and still ended up being my favourite part.

Did you write your own vows? If so, what made you do that?

We didn’t personalise our vows, however, we carefully selected text and quotes that articulated our emotions better than we could have.

What was it about Seacliff House Gerringong that made you choose it as your wedding venue?

What wasn’t it about Seacliff House that made us choose it?! Views. Accommodation. Space. The vibe of the place! We were so lucky to have such an incredible venue so close to home. Cannot fault it!

What’s your best piece of wedding-related advice?

Get a good stylist! They achieve your vision and ease co-ordinating the day. To see it all come together is magical. Pay for a good photographer and videographer! Those guys capture you to a tee, and you watch back moments that you missed.

If you had your time again, is there anything you’d do differently?

We would have arranged prior to the day more extensive wet weather coverage! Thankfully, there was only a short, light drizzle!
