BRIDE… Kellie

GROOM… Matt

WEDDING DATE… Saturday 12th March 2016

WHERE IT ALL BEGAN

Matt and I went to primary school together, which is where our journey began. We started going out in high school (first ever boyfriend and girlfriend!) and went out for two and a half years. We stayed in contact and remained great friends for the next ten years and started dating again just over two years ago. We picked up where we left off and now I’m lucky enough to say that I married my best friend and high school sweetheart!

CEREMONY: St Ignatius Church, Richmond

RECEPTION: Aerial, South Wharf

We chose to have our reception at Aerial in South Wharf. This was the first venue that we looked at and we instantly knew that this was where we wanted to celebrate our special day! It accommodated our guests and we absolutely loved the views and open space. What really sold it for us was how beautiful, new and modern the Aerial was.

STYLING: Where the Grass is Green

The theme/style we chose was modern, elegant and magical! We were lucky enough to have two very talented stylists. “Where the Grass is Green” were fantastic and we LOVED the hanging floral design that they created!!! “Styled by Belle” also played a huge role in our styling by adding many personal and special touches. Both stylist’s vision, creativity and attention to detail exceed all our expectations. We were so happy and blown away when we walked into the Aerial on our wedding day!

PHOTOGRAPHY: Seedthree Photography

When selecting a photographer, it was important to us that our photos were very natural and we wanted a person that we really connected with.

Thank you to Megan from “Seedthree Photography” for capturing every detail of our special day and presenting us with a wedding album that we will cherish forever. Megan was amazing from the second we met her and we loved having her there on the day!

VIDEO: Moon and Back (Formally Purple Ribbon)

We love their video presentations and had been in a bridal party previously and experienced firsthand their professional approach to capture every small detail. Nathan and his team were AMAZING and we relive our day every time we watch our Wedding video!

THE DRESS

I was lucky enough to get to know Kyha and the lovely One Day Bridal girls when I was a bridesmaid a few years ago. I told them that as soon as I was engaged, I would be back to see them to make my Wedding dress. They make a bride feel so special and nothing is ever too much trouble or unachievable. My Wedding dress was everything I had hoped for and the One Day Bridal team made the whole experience exciting and memorable. I love my dress and am so thankful I went with these beautiful girls!

MAKE UP

Adele from Adele Sarah Beauty did my make-up on my wedding day. Adele is a well-respected and reputable makeup artist who takes the time to listen and understand exactly what you want and delivers every time without fail. My makeup was flawless and I felt relaxed and comfortable knowing Adele was in charge. Adele also did my Bridesmaids and mums makeup and we all could not have been happier – Adele is AMAZING and we loved having her there on the day.

SHOES

I chose to wear Tony Bianco shoes which I find to be the most comfortable for me! Matt is a lot taller than I am and my shoes were high but I managed to get through the whole day and night!

BRIDESMAIDS: Susanne Kitson Design

I had four beautiful bridesmaids who were beyond amazing right throughout the whole wedding process! Sue from Susanne Kitson Design made the girls dresses. We showed Sue a picture of the dresses we were after and she worked her magic and we couldn’t have been happier. The dresses all fit perfectly and nothing was ever too much trouble for Sue – she did a great job!

GROOMSMEN

The Groom and Groomsmen all got their suits and shoes from Politix- and of course it was as simple as going into a few shops and getting all of their outfits fitted – I must say, they all scrubbed up well and their suits looked amazing!

NON-NEGOTIABLE

Our non-negotiable for the day was to have Purple Ribbon as our Videographer. They were incredible!!! We also felt it was important to have a band that could create an uplifting atmosphere and we were lucky enough to have “The White Tree” band- they did not disappoint!

YOUR ADVICE FOR FUTURE BRIDES

Enjoy every single second of your special day because it really does go by so fast. Everything will come together in the end and make sure you take the time as a couple to absorb and enjoy every part of it. I hope your wedding day is one of the best days of your life and it is exactly as you imagined it to be and more.

Best of luck! xx
