Summer romance shoot-28.jpg

Hi I’m Ali aka Smith + Archer! Together with Ame from Raven and the Rose, Erin from Sweet Wonderful You and Elisha from Mount Macedon Winery, we are organising a lunch of hand selected, like minded businesses in the Macedon Ranges and surrounds that are part of the wedding industry, aka you!

The purpose of the lunch is two fold;
1. to start fostering a community amongst all of us. As Jack Johnson so wisely sung, its always better when we’re together.
2. to have a bit of a "Christmas party" as many of us are sole traders and Christmas parties don’t really happen for small businesses.

You might have a few questions so here are a few answers. If I have missed anything though, please do shoot me an email

Will there be a cost?
Yes there will, at the moment it will be $40 per person and includes a light, cocktail style lunch (and hopefully icecream too). Drinks will be available for purchase so you can drink as much (or as little) as you like.

Can you cater to dietary requirements?
Please let us know of any dietary requirements and we will work with the caters. We are still working on the catering side so nothing definite has been decided upon just yet.

Can I bring more than 1 person with me?
Of course you can! If you have a few people that work with you why not shout them along and make it your staff Christmas party as well!

Are you also organising transport for everyone?
I’m afraid I just won’t have the brain space for that, we do encourage you to car pool though which is why you can see which other businesses have been invited on the paperless post invite.

Where is this shindig happening?
Well, we are working on that too, and it will really help to have an indication of numbers, so please do rsvp to the invite that we sent.

How do we purchase tickets to lunch?
Once we have a venue and catering all locked in we will send out a link to purchase your tickets.

OMG you didn’t invite XYZ to the party? They should totally be there!
Did I miss someone?! It is totally possible that I did miss someone, between the 4 of us we know lots of local wedding peeps, but we don’t know everyone. Feel free to shoot me an email ( and tell me who we missed.
