Wedding Ceremony/Gift Wine Box



Australian Wood Wine Bottle Gift Box and Wedding Ceremony

The wine box ceremony

The idea of this is simple: you take a bottle of your favourite wine and a wooden box to put it in. During the ceremony you and your newly betrothed place the wine into the box along with the vows, speeches or a letter that each of you has written to the other. The box is closed with the intention that you open it again on your first anniversary (or after your first major fight as a married couple…). On that day you drink the wine together and read the vows and speeches, and remember why you got married. You can buy more wine and write more letters and seal the box again for the next year, creating a fabulous anniversary tradition.

For my wedding I made a box like this for our wine ceremony. We sealed our favourite wine in the box along with our vows, planning the open it on our first anniversary – or first big argument – so we can drink the wine and re-read our promises to each other. Friends at the wedding asked me to make one for them, and on and on.

This is NOT a plywood box pumped out in a factory in China using a laser cutter, and drenched with toxic plastics.

It is really handmade, using traditional hand tools, to order, in Australia, by an Australian craftsman, from sustainably sourced Australian hardwoods. It is finished with food safe, non-toxic and VOC free hand rubbed shellac (on the lid panel and inside of box) and oil (on the outside of the box). It is silky smooth to touch and, weird as it sounds, the hand rubbed oil finish feels absolutely amazing to handle. My amateur photography really doesn’t do justice to them.

It is pictured in Jarrah with a beautifully figured Queensland Walnut panel top and bottom. However it is available in any Australian wood – if you have something specific in mind, just ask! The hardware is solid brass and made in Australia.

Get the couple something truly unique with this made-to-order Australian hardwood wine box! Each piece is as unique as the tree it was made from. Perfect for the happy couple, the bridal party and even the groomsmen.

Even more beautiful than it is functional, this case comes with a hinged lid and metal clasp to safely store your favourite tipple until it’s time to be locked away with your vows until your first anniversary – or first big fight 😉

Fits a single bottle of most standard wines, but sizes can easily be modified – just ask! Unfortunately though, the fabulous and rare Tatiarra Caravan of Dreams is not included with the purchase.

The Details:

• 430 (L) x 130 (D) x 130 (H)*
• Sustainably sourced Australian Hardwood
• Hinged Lid
• Brass clasp
• Accommodates most standard size wine bottles, but sizes are easily modified at no extra charge**.

*measurements are approximate and vary slightly for many boring reasons. However, the bottle and vows will always fit.
**within reason. A box for a magnum will cost more.

This is a made to order item. The lead time is 3-6 weeks, however if you’ve left it to the last minute let me know and I’ll see what I can do.
