Madelyn loves Jesse | A Spicers Clovelly Wedding


A little bit of magic attended the wedding of Madelyn to her longtime love, Jesse. The pair originally met through mutual friends sat high school, and seven years later they were engaged. They planned their spectacular Montville wedding day over 18 months, but even the best planning couldn’t conjure up the perfect rainbow that blessed their day with its prettiness. That part was pure luck, but if I were them, I’d be taking it as a sign that life was working out just right. 

The couple were wed at St. Joseph’s Parish in Nambour, which they followed up with an intimate wedding reception in Montville’s Spicers Clovelly Estate with their 35 guests. However not before they took their bridal party on an expedition to One Tree Hill in Maleny so their photographer, Jennifer Oliphant, could capture some stunning images, and, of course, that rainbow. 

The bride’s carefree style with free-flowing locks and natural makeup complimented her elegant, yet intricate bridal gown by Sunshine Coast-based bridal couture designer, Judy Copley. The entire look was fresh and elegant with her bridesmaids also wearing white, and all three carrying graceful unstructured bouquets of superb white roses and delicate green foliage, created by Sunshine Coast wedding florist, Willow Bud. Meanwhile the gents are positively dapper in their suits by Politix.

In all, this is a wedding that oozes style and class with minimal fuss. And frankly we at The Bride’s Tree dig it in a big way.
