Casey and Tim enjoyed every minute of their small and intimate Rift Coach House wedding.
Planning a wedding does take time and effort for everything to fall into place nicely. Doing this can be a tad stressful. Casey decided to downsize her wedding to minimise all that extra hassle. The Coach House on The Rift estate in Bowral is a great place to hold such a wedding. Its beautiful surrounds are a perfect backdrop for a small number of guests to be wined and dined.
CASEY AND TIM’S THE RIFT COACH HOUSE WEDDING
Most of the time I get my couples to answer a series of questions to help you plan your wedding day. So here goes…
Why did you guys choose the Coach House for your wedding?
We choose the Coach House as we wanted a house where the whole family could stay and all the marriage celebrations could take place in the one spot. We loved the style of property and expansive grounds. And well it was available at 2 months notice too. We choose Bowral because it’s a beautiful winter destination.
Wedding or Elopement?
We always referred to it as an elopement. But I guess it was more like a micro-wedding. Tim and I never neatly fit into one box definition. We just wanted an intimate celebration with our closest family members. We also never used the word wedding when speaking with suppliers.
Any tips for the Brides and Grooms reading this blog post?
Stay true to what you both want, not what your family or friends expect. Focus on the elements that bring you the most joy and forgot about the things that don’t matter to you. For us, we love good food and wine so we hired a fancy private chef and handpicked boutique wines to have an incredible celebratory meal. We didn’t care for fancy cars, a cake to cut, a bridal party or floral arbour so they all were cut from the budget. By focusing on our favourite things and eliminating the rest we were able to really spoil ourselves and our family for a long weekend.

This Bowral property is amazing for a small and intimate wedding/elopement. Here’s something similar from one of my other Southern Highlands elopements.
