Catriona and Hok’s Scottish wedding was a darling garden affair with sweet touches of elegance throughout. Such an occasion is what one would describe as timeless. From the intricate lace and crepe gown, to a posy of pink and charming string quartet – each detail was utter perfection.
The couple’s theming inspiration for the day was relaxed with greenery – much in the spirit of a rose garden. Styled by local stylists, Get Knotted, it was the personal touches that really made the day so special. Hok and his groomsmen opted for traditional kilts in keeping with their Scottish ceremony.
Meanwhile, out gorgeous Catriona looked absolutely beautiful in Vicenta by Pronovias (no longer available), which was clearly a match made in heaven!
“This dress is absolutely stunning and I’ve never felt more beautiful. Such an elegant dress with gorgeous details throughout. I knew it was the one as soon as I saw it!” Catriona said of her dream gown.
It was as if the Pronovias Atelier gown was made for her – the fitted mermaid skirt and sheer illusion tulle bodice with rebrodé lace appliqués beautifully reflecting Catriona’s personal style. Our bride-to-be let the dress do the talking with subtle and luminousmakeup, cute pearl drop earrings and her hair upswept to showcase the lovely low back detail.

Scott and Sarah’s lush Currumbin Valley wedding took place in the divine Sol Gardens – a picturesque backdrop for a modern and relaxed ceremony. Not only was the day a celebration of the love between the beautiful couple, but also their super-cute one-year-old daughter Harley who had her very own shining Daddy-daughter moment.The smile on Harley’s face as she spotted her husband-to-be stood out as one of Sarah’s favourite moments, followed closely by their vows.“Not only did Scott absolutely ACE his vows, we had a scissors, paper, rock tournament to see who would read theirs first. I lost… but in hindsight that was the best thing for me as I wouldn’t have been able to keep it together after hearing Scotts promises to me.”The day shone with bright weather to match the joyous occasion celebrating with 72 of their closest friends and family. The colour scheme was kept beautifully neutral, save for pops of bright pink in the bouquet and florals, which made for a gorgeously well-balance palette. The bridesmaids were dressed in soft beige to match the undertone of Sarah’s feminine gown.Sarah’s dream dress turned out to be the goddess gown, Sage by Emmy Mae Bridal. A form-fitting gown with luxurious lace, deep-V front, low back and feminine tulle-line split. The style perfectly suited Sarah and Scott’s relaxed garden wedding. Sarah fell in love with Sage almost immediately!“My favourite part of my dress… EVERYTHING! Maddie from WLC brought out Sage and suggested I tried it on. At first I thought it was too daring for me. I then kept looking at her and a gut feeling came over me to try it on again. I turned to mum and she agreed. She fit like an absolute glove, was flattering in all of the right places and was/is the perfect dress for me (Scott agrees too!).”Check out this gorgeous couple’s gallery down below!Photographer + Videographer – Pineapple Images (Eliza & Mike) @pineappleimagesHair – Aleesha Dark Hair Stylist @aleeshadarkehairstylistMake Up – Reanin Glah @reanin.glahBouquets and Greenery – Ruby Lane Flower Co (Emily) @rubylaneflowercoVenue – Sol Gardens @solgardens01Stylist – Arctic Fox Hire – Katie @arcticfoxhire
