Working on so many weddings we get to see some of Melbourne's most awesome wedding suppliers. It seems a waste to keep all this to ourselves, so here's a totally subjective and non-definitive but hopefully helpful list of some other people doing cool and useful stuff in the wedding industry.
(Oh and we're proudly independent and corruption-free here at the Farm Cafe, so no bribes were taken - some people here probably don't even know they made it onto this list - so hand on our heart its just our honest to goodness opinion based on real old fashioned experience).
Timothy Marriage, not simply the man with the best name for the job, Tim is one of our favourites back from the time years ago when he worked behind the coffee machine in the Farm Cafe!
