Jess and Toby’s Wedding with South Coast Party Hire

Jess and Toby’s Wedding with South Coast Party Hire

“South Coast Party Hire was so helpful in assisting us to create the wedding of our dreams”

Weddings on the South Coast are almost always filled with a special kind of ease. A special occasion that is coloured with relaxed vibes and aroma of nature. Jess and Toby married in a gorgeous ceremony on a private property at Woodhill (Berry) surrounded by friends and family.

Jess tells the story of their marriage proposal. “It was Christmas Morning, Toby and I were having our first Christmas at home together. I had been upset with Toby the day before, frustrated at doing all the Christmas shopping for our families so I sent him out to the shops to buy me something to put under the tree. Little did I know what he was already up to! Right up until I was unwrapping the present I had no clue, it caught me completely by surprise! It was a beautiful moment and great timing as it meant we were able to celebrate the day with our closest friends and family.”

They then spent the next 14 months planning their special day. Initially the wedding was to be held at Sea Farm at Copacabana but a change in staffing and miscommunication saw that venue fall through. But in a true example of ‘things happen for a reason’, Toby’s sister and her husband had recently purchased a beautiful property ‘Blueberry’ at Woodhill (Berry) and it turned out to be the perfect setting for a personal, family-centric ceremony and reception. And this is where we came in with our marquee hire in Berry.

South Coast Party Hire was privileged to work with Jess and Toby to create a magical reception area with our clear roof wedding marquee hire – ideal to dine in and dance the night away in under the stars while still being protected from the elements and providing walls to create intimate surrounds.


The reception at Blueberry was filled with decorations and personal touches created by Jess and Toby, including handmade signs and even a bar.

“We made our own tables! We collected fence palings, stripped sanded them back and made 13 beautiful, rustic tables that our guests sat at over dinner. We set up and styled the whole day, using props and decor we had collected throughout the course of the year. It was a lot of work but SO incredibly special to see it all come together and know that -­ we did that.”


The entertainment was provided by the extremely talented Tillee Music, supported by lighting and sound hire from SCPH. As always, we’re more than happy to work in with other vendors to ensure that each and every event is amazing and runs smoothly.

“To be honest all of our vendors came from word of mouth. South Coast Party Hire was our first vendor, I heard they had the best clear roof marquee ­- and that they did. Erin from SCPH is an absolute gem! She was so helpful and willing to give you as much information, help and vendor recommendations as possible. Erin put me on to Scott Surplice who captured our day perfectly and is a true legend to his craft!!”

Thanks for allowing the South Coast Party Hire team to be a part of your special day, we wish you all the very best in your married life, Jess and Toby.
