This year, at White Lily Couture, we are starting things off with a bang! Having operated since 2013, we feel like we know a thing or two about the wedding industry yet, we are yearning for more meaningful connections. As a result, we want to open our arms (and store!) to wedding industry professionals.
So, Tell Us – What’s the Tea?
Here at White Lily Couture, we are creating our very own networking event! The idea came about as we realised that this year, we want to create a platform for wedding industry professionals. In doing so, we want to give Brisbane and surrounding-based businesses a way to broaden their scope through meaningful connections and make room for new business opportunities. Most importantly, we want to start conversations that are worthwhile your precious time! Long story short, that’s how “What’s the Tea?” came to be.
We welcome industry professionals from all fields, including photographers, florists, makeup and hair stylists, event planners, venues, and more. Make your 2021 the year of growth, meaningful connections, and, of course, a touch of champagne! The bigger details are yet to come, so keep an eye out for more updates.
If you work in the wedding industry, we want to hear from you! Tell us how you got started, why you love what you do, or even just a simple hello. Our DMs are open or send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We can’t wait to hear from you!

Clare and Jordan’s wedding exuded a sense of relaxed sophistication and unique flavour of fun. The couple’s vibrant bohemian Byron wedding featured bold colours and personal touches unlike any other.
White Lily bride, Clare had her eye on the venue for years. Fig Tree Byron Bay set the scene for Clare & Jordan’s big day, Clare explaining “I had seen Fig Tree Restaurant on Instagram years ago and known that it was where I wanted to get married.
The couple gave the iconic space their own personal flair with an abundant array of bold pink and orange florals encircling them at the end of the aisle. They continued these bold and beautiful blooms into their bridal bouquets, as well as a delicate selection of blossoms adoring Clare’s hair.
The abundance of floral details paired perfectly with Clare’s bohemian beauty-style wedding dress. “As soon as I put it on I knew that it was the one.” She said of her Ashley gown from Noosa designer, Erin Clare. “Erin was so amazing to work with and she brought my dream dress and veil to life!”
“I thought I wanted a plain dress with a big tulle skirt. I ended up choosing a sequinned, tight-fitting dress!” The gorgeous gown features luxe white sequins, fine straps and side split.
The couple celebrated their love in a stunning outdoor ceremony with friends and family.
“We wanted a simple, relaxed, fun ceremony. We didn’t have any readings but our celebrant Michelle did an amazing job of telling our love story to our family and friends. We wrote our vows as we wanted to make realistic promises to each other that related to our relationship and what we want from our marriage. We were able to hug and whisper to each other throughout the ceremony and this made us feel loved, happy and comfortable. Our ceremony was a highlight of our day.”
Following a lovely sit-down dinner with their guests, Clare and Jordan headed out underneath the stars to continue their celebrations.
The first dance? Utterly romantic says Clare. “Our first dance was outside, underneath a grapevine and fairy lights, surrounded by our family and friends. We wanted a classic song that wouldn’t go out of style – we chose ‘Stand By Me’ by Ben E King.”

With a dreamy lavender farm as the backdrop and a bombshell bride -to-be, Karlie and Ryan’s wedding could have leapt straight out of a Hollywood film!
The pair originally met through mutual friends on a night out, where they hit it off. Their love-filled wedding speeches from their nearest and dearest on the night highlighted the perfect mix of sweetness and strength they share as a couple. How cute is that?!
Their stunning setting was none other than the picturesque Kooroomba Vineyard and Lavender Farm near Mount Alford. This venue features a unique open-air-style chapel with a modern twist, situated amongst the aromatic lavender fields.

Mikhailla and Teddy are the match made in heaven who between them, have built a love to weather any storm. Having battled through unthinkable loss and hardship and joyously raising their child, Elle, the pair have waited with both patience and excitement for their wedding day to arrive.
Having first met on a night out in Brisbane, the pair immediately hit it off. A few dates later, the pair were inseparable – paving the way for their future together.
Originally set to be hosted outside, the weather took a turn for the worst and it looked like their ceremony plans would be shattered. After some quick thinking and speedy adjustments from their dream team at JJ Style Co, a gorgeous new setup was created. Mikhailla could only rave about the way in which it unfolded.

After meeting at a friend’s 16th birthday party, Kate was head-over-heels for smooth-talker Jayden. The pair hit it off and now, years later found themselves arranging their wedding. They both agreed on what mattered to them most. We sat down with Kate to hear how it unfolded and her thoughts on what’s really important on your wedding day!
Aglow in the joy of their big day, Kate strode down the aisle looking beyond fabulous in Myra by Enzoani – a heavenly beaded mermaid gown with Chantilly lace underlay. She knew it was ‘the one’ straight away while shopping at White Lily Couture’s Brisbane boutique. Kate says,
“I loved that as soon as I tried it on I knew it was the one. I thought I was going to have such a hard time choosing, except the dress chose me! It made me feel beautiful and feminine. As soon as I put that dress on I felt amazing, I loved the way it looked, sat and fell on my body. I tried it on so many times before the wedding as I just loved the way I felt in it.” – The ultimate bridal feeling!

No amount of weather was going to rain on Tess & Jayden’s parade for their special day! Their rainy day nuptials were hosted at Osteria Casuarina in Northern New South Wales. The couple infused a vibrant mix of colour, native greenery and elegance to create their once in a lifetime celebration.
Tess looked sensational in her Lexi gown from US designer, Enzoani (Sample no longer available in store), as she made her way toward her soon-to-be husband in their luxe combi van. Her bridesmaids, equally stunning in simple, midi length gowns. We love how Tess mirrored her silhouette with her bridesmaids’ ivory spaghetti strap gowns.
