The bride

Choosing a crystal encrusted fit and flare mermaid style dress, Lena didn’t need masses of glittering gems – she chose gorgeous sparkling chunky earrings as her accessory, leaving the rest of the glittering to be done by the dress! With fluffy ruffles tumbling down to a train and a full length veil, Lena’s bridal look was chic, elegant and sparkling! The bride chose beautiful white lilies, sweet peach and pink roses for her stunning bouquet, perfectly tied with a pure white satin ribbon to match her dress.

The groom

A neutral tone is a great choice for a hot, sunny wedding, and Harnell’s suit definitely hit the mark. Keeping a white base colour gave a really cool, tailored look.

The wedding party

An outdoor wedding looks fabulous with a natural toned palette and pretty accent shades, and the wedding party were a perfect fit. With the bridesmaids in pink, the groomsmen coordinated with their dresses with an accent colour tie.

The décor

We adore a spectacular garden wedding, and this one is simply stunning. With chandelier, greenery and sparkling hanging crystals, the backdrop could not have been more romantic. A gentle waterfall added natural beauty to the ceremony alongside gold metallic pillars, flowers and a splash of pink to incorporate the couple’s colour palette.

The ceremony

How happy does this flower girl look!? Simply adorable! And such a sweet memory to have captured. The wedding party made their way up the pure white, petal strewn aisle through beautiful floral decorations of peach roses, hydrangeas and big white roses, accented with trailing greenery and twisted gold stems.

The reception

With pink tassled vintage keys guiding their guests to their tables, the couple kept their colour palette neutral and light. They accented the space with ivory linens and gold chairs along with dashes of peach, pink and natural greens – perfect for keeping the vibe light and cheerful. A fun sweet table kept guests smiling and a gorgeous cake was accented with more sparkling crystals – a perfect centrepiece!
