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.

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.

Melissa & Matthew’s fairytale forest wedding was a truly magical day held at Osteria Casuarina in Northern New South Wales. With a rich colour palette of deep reds and burgundies paired with luxurious greens, the setting was nothing short of dreamy.
With a first look set amongst a forest backdrop, Matthew turned around to see Melissa looking like a princess in her Milly gown by Mori Lee. This amazing dress features voluminous cascading ruffles and a deep-V neckline. When asked about her gown, Melissa was glowing:
“How do I just pick one thing that I loved about my gown? For the longest time I always thought I wanted something slinky and sexy, but when I first saw the images of Milly online, I fell in love straight away. When I went to try it on in store it fit like a glove and I knew it was the right dress for me. I had tried on so many dresses before that, but found that a lot were too lacy or sparkly for my taste. I loved that Milly had so much drama in the skirt (especially when I added a hoop), but was still rather simple it it’s overall design, and adored that it was backless. There is also something so timeless about a beautiful ball gown. I felt like an absolute princess on the day.”
Melissa topped off her gorgeous bridal look with a classic updo and one tier veil. The simplicity of the gown’s fabric allowed Melissa’s bold bouquet to make a statement – picking up colours from the natural flora of their ceremony location.
The reception was the epitome of wedding day glamour with luxurious hanging floral installations and lashing of gold and red across each table.
The loved-up newlyweds headed straight to New Zealand for their honeymoon with an added getaway to Japan following a little later in the year.

A classic love story of high-school sweethearts, Lauren & Damon’s romance is truly the stuff of every girls dreams! The couple’s modern romantic wedding held at the breathtaking Tanglewood Estate in Victoria was styling heaven – perfectly reflecting their sweetly blossoming romance.“Damon & I met in highschool. We were best friends initially & then it blossomed into more after school. We’ve been together ever since, and Damon proposed 10 years to the day after we met under an incredible fig tree in Byron Bay.” Lauren said of their story.Their big day was everything and more with gorgeous details such as blush pink roses and ribbons pared back with a rustic chapel and classic black bow ties for the groomsmen.Their stunning ceremony was closely followed by a luxe reception held in a beautiful brick barn superbly styled by Wanderlust Creative. The overall feeling was one of warmth and love as the pair celebrated their nuptials with family and friends.“Our wedding day was everything we could have possibly wished for, there was so much joy & love all around us on the day, and celebrating with our friends and family was a dream come true.”The sun shone brightly through the large arched windows of the chapel onto Lauren’s Maddie gown from US designer, Enzoani. This beautiful ballgown features a full skirt, a trickling textural multimodal lace bodcie – chantilly layered with lace appliqués, and luxe diamanté straps. Our beaming bride opted for statement diamanté earrings and a two-tier raw-edge veil to complete her wedding day look. Lauren knew instantly that the Maddie gown was her dream dress:“I really knew Maddie was ‘the one’ as soon as I stepped out behind the curtain and saw everyone’s faces. I never thought I would have that feeling (I’m very fussy), but my Mum & sister both teared up and soon enough we were all in tears! Jodi from White Lily really made the whole experience so special with her expertise and guidance on the day. I love that Maddie was a real ‘bridal’ gown- something I would only ever wear on my wedding day, and really made me feel like a princess.”To see more cuteness from Lauren and Damon’s big day, head to the gallery below!Venue: Tanglewood Estate, VictoriaPhotography: Ali Bailey PhotographyHair & Make Up: Megan HarrisonCelebrant: Kate MorganStyling: Wanderlust CreativeEntertainment: The White Tree
