Private wedding in coastal Cottesloe

Kevin & Scott tied the knot in Kevin’s parents’ backyard in beautiful coastal Cottesloe on Australia Day 2019. 150 guests came together to celebrate the love of this lovely couple, enjoying the incredible atmosphere of a premium styled Jess Butcher @Butcher Baker Styles wedding in coordination with a range of suppliers. Because Kevin & Scott never fail to surprise their near and dear, and didn’t plan anything else on their special day either. Their first dance was to ‘Reach for the Stars (S Club 7), which included a flash mob by 30 of their invited guests! Only your imagination can stop you on your wedding day.

We at Ultimo got entrusted with creating and serving the yummy things on Kevin & Scott’s big night, with the food items raging from beautiful grilled scallops with mango, ginger and lime salsa served on a pink shell (!) to classic beer battered fish & rosemary salted chip cone to keep the party going aaaall night. And last but not least – there’s always room for dessert… Spoiling their loved ones’ sweet tooth with four different dessert canapes (because who can choose only one, right?!), the night was an absolute success and Ultimo could not be more pleased to have been given the honour of being involved.
