WHEN AND HOW WE MET

My best friend was dating Will’s cousin and they insisted we go on a date. This was November2012.

OUR WEDDING LOCATION

Semara Luxury Resort in Uluwatu, Bali

We chose this venue because we both love Bali, and the location was breath taking and could not find a back drop as good as this in Melbourne. Bali was also a great excuse for everyone to come on a holiday. We got to spend a week with our closest family and friends; it was the best week of our lives.

STYLE CONCEPT

Our ceremony was all white. We had white chairs, white rose petals, white drapes and many more.

Our dinner and party was a more vintage theme, with light timber tables, gold cutlery, peach white and green flower arrangements. It was all out door and looked absolutely stunning.

I styled/suggested everything I wanted and our wedding planner put everything together for us.

THE BEST ADVICE I WAS GIVEN

Have your wedding the way you want and not doing what anybody else wants you to do.

WHAT WAS YOUR NON NEGOTIABLE FOR THE DAY?

There were a few things but music would have to be the most important. We were very specific with the music. We had a DJ for the cocktail and canapés and then for the dinner we had a solo guitarist and then a DJ again for the party. I chose every single song. We have a group of family and friends that love to dance and we just wanted to make sure no one was getting off that dance floor.

HENS DAY

I had a crazy day/night thanks to my amazing bridal party. We had a caterer come to must sisters house and cook food all afternoon and topless waiters to serve our drinks. The whole house was set up and looked gorgeous, they had a great theme going on. There was a cocktail Station, cheese and wine station, Mexican food station, desert station. At night we had a 24 seater limo come and pick up all the girls who wanted to go out and they took us out to a night club in the city where the girls had again organised a booth for us with more food and drink and we partied the night away.

CEREMONY + RECEPTION: Semara Luxury Resort in Uluwatu, Bali 

THE DRESS

Custom Designed Wedding gown and One Day veil 

I found the whole process easy. I only went to three places including One Day Bridal. The girls were really helpful and it was all really easy and enjoyable.

HAIR & MAKE UP

We had a team of three hair dresses and three make up artist on the day as I had five bridesmaids and also had mum and two aunties that needed pampering on the day.

SHOES

Simple white shoes from Public Desire. I only got them because I needed a shoe to try on with my wedding dress until I found the pair I wanted. However I ended up really liking these so I kept them.

BRIDESMAIDS

I had five bridesmaids. I own a clothing store called Green Love (@green_love_boutique) and decided to order the girls gowns from Nookie (@lovenookie).

GROOMSMEN

The boys got their suits, shirts, and belts from MJ Bale, the bow ties were from Ted baker and their shoes were from Aquilla.

YOUR ADVICE FOR FUTURE BRIDES

Don’t stress!! I was really laid back for the whole preparation of the wedding and that week in Bali just helped so much. We had a few hiccups on the day but it so good when you have your family and friends to pick up the pieces.
