Briony + Mick’s Noosa Wedding

Briony & Mick 0576

Bride Briony from Mackay says the one thing she wanted to convey for her destination wedding in Noosa was “elegance”. I’d go one step further and call it achingly beautiful, especially when it comes to That Dress.

Brisbane-based bespoke designers MXM Couture are responsible for Briony’s dreamy fairytale dress, and the rest of the bridal party also stepped out in gorgeous fashion for the ceremony at Sheraton Noosa Resort & Spa. The couple’s 95 guests then joined them at Noosa restaurant, Ricky’s River Bar & Restaurant for a reception filled with absolutely delicious food. Ricky’s is known as one of Noosa’s most fantastic dining experiences, and a popular choice for the foodies among us. 

The couple and their bridal party took to the beach for their photo shoot with photographer, Bayleigh Vedelago, and it was one of those drop dead gorgeous perfect Noosa wedding days.

Your wedding day is so special because you’re surrounded by so much love from all angles.”
