Real Weddings – Terri + Chris

Never having been to the Hunter before, Terri and Chris wanted their wedding to be a country escape for family and close friends. Terri’s mum bought her a copy of Your Hunter Valley Wedding Planner, where they found The Beltree from their advertisement and fell in love with the venue. The rest was booked from there! Chris Elfes of Photography On Hermitage took these beautiful images. See more on page 194, Your Hunter Valley Wedding Planner Ed 14!


Terri + Chris married at St Patrick’s of Nulkaba, followed by a reception at The Beltree.


Terri’s graceful gown was by Jennifer Regan. Absolute Vintage Elegance Limousines transported the bride and groom in style.



The rich burgundy bridesmaid’s dresses were from Rodeo Show. Baby’s breath bouquets were created by Floral Effects & Event Hire, Cessnock.




The Iced Queens made Terri & Chris’ lovely wedding cake.
