Soft & Lovely Australian Wedding by ngg studios
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

This week’s real wedding comes all the way from Brisbane, Australia… and I’m so excited to share it with you!  Jess and Brendan planned a dreamy, romantic kind of day, with a beautiful soft color palette and eco-savvy styling.  Both down to earth types, their aim was to host a celebration that felt completely like them.  Fall in love with their gorgeous album by our Queensland faves, ngg studios.

The maid’s outfits were soft and feminine, chosen to accompany the relaxed, romantic theme of the wedding. Rather than having dresses, the girls wore skirts and tops… which, according to the bride, all of them have turned in to many different outfits since the wedding (you have to love bridesmaid attire that you can actually wear again)!  The bride’s friend designed all of the florals perfectly to her specifications, Jess nearly cried when she saw how beautifully they turned out.

Jess and Brendan married in front of a large tree in Kalimna Park.  The paper goods and cake carried thru a subtle, natural tree theme throughout the afternoon!

It was important for them to host an event that was beautiful and sustainable, so they held their reception at Forest Glen Organic Farm.  The tables were decorated simply with pinecones and wildflowers.  For favors, they offered guests herbs in plantable pots.  The afternoon was a picture of natural simplicity in all of its romance.

The cake was an incredible confection, a Jaffa Mud Cake with a tree design spanning the tiers (yum)!

Best wishes to the lovely couple!  See more of Jess and Brendan’s day  in our Real Wedding Gallery

Happy Yellow Brisbane Wedding by Mihaja Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Mike and Merryn married on New Year’s Eve 2011 in Brisbane.  They were inspired  by the 1960’s style depicted in the TV series ‘Mad Men;’ yellow with deep purple was the bold and happy colour theme.  (These oversized balloons are my fave)!  Mihaja Photography perfectly captured the moments, emotions and quirky details of this special day.

The couple met when Mike moved into Merryn’s share house in Brisbane in 2004. Mike says he knew there was something special about her from the moment he met her. They used to stay up late on Friday nights drinking red wine, chatting and listening to music, then falling asleep on the couch together. In 2008, they moved to London for six months, but six months soon turned into three years!

Mike describes the wedding proposal: “On our seven year anniversary, I surprised Merryn with a dinner at Kensington Roof Gardens. I had created a hand made book with each page illustrating a different reason why I love her so much…. the last few pages did all the hard work!”

Merryn wore a custom gown by Dolly Couture, even her dress and shoes had adorable yellow accents (swoon)!   Above, she poses with her charming wedding party attendants.  The ceremony took place at the Roma Street Parklands, where those happy yellow balloons were poised amongst the trees. 

After the ceremony, the wedding party indulged in a slew of fun-filled portrait sessions, then headed over to the Victoria Park Golf Course for the party.

So presh, right?!

Thanks very much to Mike and Merryn for lighting up our week!
