We weren’t really interested in a wedding that was too steeped in tradition. We wanted more of a modern wedding to reflect our modern love story.
— Laura, Bride

ON THE DRESS

"The Gia gown from Grace Loves Lace was everything I wanted for the big day: classic lace, beautiful back and neckline detail, and comfy as hell. When my dress arrived and I could finally try it on, I knew straightaway that I’d made the right decision. I felt so good in it on the day and I love all the details of the dress."

ON THE VIBE

"We wanted to bring a relaxed elegance to the bush where everyone could feel a little fancier than usual while still letting their hair down."

FUNNiest memory

"Just after the signing of the wedding certificate my veil took flight and landed in the dam, slowly sinking into oblivion. We decided that the veils resting place makes the venue all the more special, we left a piece of our day forever."

FAVE MEMORY

"When Paris, our photographer, took Hen and I away for our couple photos. I loved having that time to ourselves to reflect on the fact we’d just got married. We could catch our breath and have a little cuddle and kiss and not worry about anyone else. Those were the rawest moments of the day for me that I really treasure."

ON THE VENUE

"We really connected with Black Brewing Co’s modern take on rustic elegance with the exposed wood and open spaces. We also couldn’t wait to say our vows on the island overlooking the red dirt dam."

#SHOUTOUT

"Our photographer, Paris, was such a light on the day. She kept us calm and focused on the whole point of the day, our love for each other."

WORDS OF WISDOM

"Don’t stress the small stuff. No matter how prepared you are something (big or small) is bound to go wrong and you’ll realise on the day that it doesn’t even matter because you get to marry your best friend."
