Wedding planners in the Northern Territory
Planning your wedding is a busy and exciting time of your life when (even for the most organised couple) getting a little help can go a long way.
We sat down with the dynamic duo, Mellie and Bec from Territory Nights, to give you a few tips on planning your Territory wedding. Based in Darwin, Territory Nights has grown its business quickly; starting out as event stylists specialising in portable glamping tents and picnic set-ups for parties, which naturally moved into providing tailored wedding planning services.
When is the peak season for weddings?
"The busiest time of year for weddings in the Top End is from May – September," say Mellie and Bec. "We styled and choreographed 23 weddings in our first season."
How would you describe Territory Nights?
"We strive to bring out the best in the Territory's stunning locations with five sheds full of goodies to capture the essence of the day," Mellie says. Their services are described as being fresh and truly inspirational – holding an extensive inventory of fabrics, rugs, arbours, native and floral arrangements, candles, lighting, macramé, tailored signage, umbrellas, and bespoke furniture such as cane chairs and rust-coloured velvet lounges to bring out the design vision of the couple. "We have a style that mainly incorporates a rustic, boho, and vintage essence."
Where would you recommend to go for an outback wedding?
Mt Bundy Station is a fantastic venue for a unique ‘country’ wedding. This is quickly becoming a popular wedding venue for both locals and interstate couples. The onsite accommodation means guests can enjoy the celebrations without needing to drive anywhere afterwards. Territory Nights supply beautifully arranged bell tents so wedding guests can encounter that true Northern Territory experience.
What advice would you give to a couple planning their wedding?
“Have faith in the person who’s doing it, build that relationship," says Mellie. "It may seem overwhelming, but remember the wedding planner has done it all before."
