Real wedding: Emily + James at Glasshaus InsideCategories Real weddings. Wedding venues.
27 May, 2021
Not long after Melbourne opened back up in January 2021 from a COVID-19 lock down, many wedding venues were frantically working with their clients to help secure new dates as many had to postpone later in the year. This left an unusual patch of availability for February…
Typically February is one of the most popular months of the year for weddings. One afternoon in December of 2020, on a complete whim (and unbeknownst to his fiance, Emily), James popped a call into owner Nada at Glasshaus Inside to see if there was a Saturday free for February 2021. Lo and behold, there was! James jumped at the chance and locked the date in then and there! Fortunately, when James let Emily know, she was thrilled with James’ initiative and decision. Phew! 🙂
What followed was the perfect evening for the couple and their close friends and family. Read on for more about this real wedding.
We just adore the venue Glasshaus Inside (nursery by day) in the inner city suburb of Cremorne. It’s unique, filled with gorgeous, lush greenery and is in a convenient and central inner city location. James and Emily decided to have both their ceremony and reception at the venue, which meant guests didn’t have to move from one place to the next. You can read more about this beautiful venue in our blog Venue spotlight: Glasshaus Inside.
Warm and bubbly celebrant Danielle Emily married the couple, who chose to have an arch at the front of the venue as it was a sit down affair with two long tables set up. Photos were taken by the fun and extremely talented Sofia from Quint Photography, who had her partner as second shooter! Bringing the tunes for the night was Eddy Mac! He covered the pre-ceremony vibe, key moment songs for the ceremony and, of course, the reception.
The music brief
Emily and James’ key moment songs were a mixture of contemporary and classic tunes:
- Ceremony aisle song: Songbird – Fleetwood Mac
- Certificate signing songs: Make You Feel My Love – Adele and Easier Tonight – Matt Wertz
- Recessional song: This Will Be (An Everlasting Love) – Natalie Cole
- First dance song: Sweetest Devotion – Adele
- Party starter (after first dance): Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough – Michael Jackson
- Final song: Can’t Take My Eyes Off You – Frankie Valli
You can listen to their key moment songs on our Spotify playlist.
For the general music brief on the night, Emily and James got plenty of inspiration from our Music page, including our Top 40 wedding bangers Spotify playlist and sample mixes. Their specific song requests for the dance floor were:
- Blinding Lights – The Weekend
- Gold Digger – Kanye West
- Hey Ya! – Outkast
- We Found Love – Rihanna
Needless to say, Eddy had a LOT of fun with the brief. In fact, there were a couple of dance floors that naturally sprung up alongside entree and dinner service. Nothing like a little boogie between meals!
