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.
“I did a lot of the planning myself, but I talked through every decision with my best friend, we were such girls, spending hours on the phone talking through every detail and without her pure joy, excitement and support it wouldn’t have been as special.” Hair styling by Sass & Niki’s Wedding Hair, makeup by I Do Makeup Artistry
Stunning bouquets by Mondo Floral Designs, a Noosa wedding florist we can always count on to bowl us over the floral beauty “Our guests were important, we wanted all of our people to be around us, having a great time and sharing the love on our big day.” “We met the good old fashioned way – at a pub!” “We are different in personality but bring out the best in each other. Although we are different, we share a lot of common loves. We love a good time, our friends, food, booze and fun.” “As cliché as it is, having everyone who means something to us in the one place at the same time meant the world, how often does that happen in life. Your wedding day is so special because you’re surrounded by so much love from all angles.”
