Reception for 70 guests held at Doltone House, Jones Bay Wharf located in Sydney. Doltone House has a number of rooms at this particular facility and Lauren and Peter decided on The Loft for their reception. The Loft is unique in that there are two distinct areas – upstairs for dining and downstairs for the dancing and socialising. Doltone House, Jones Bay Wharf also has an outside area which affords views of the Harbour and the city skyline. Subject to weather, this area can be utilised for arrival drinks, which is exactly what Lauren and Peter elected to do given it was a beautiful Sydney day. Lauren previously worked as an event coordinator for this venue, so of course she was very aware of everything it had to offer.
It certainly was a lovely, elegant and fun reception with a number of emotional moments during the speeches. What was really evident was the very deep love that Lauren and Peter have for each other – I could not help but notice their continuous displays of affection.
