A true high school sweetheart story, Hailey and Dillon have been head over heels for each other since grade 10! After enduring periods of long distance, the pair knew they were made for each other.
In the early days of their relationship, Hailey moved to Perth for two years. “It was possibly the best thing we ever did. We were able to understand ourselves better while we were growing up, but most we also came to really appreciate the time we had when we were able to spend it with each other.” Said Hailey.
This mutual appreciation and understanding truly shone on their big day. All it took was a look from her husband-to-be at the end of the aisle and all Hayley’s nerves were calmed. “Walking down the aisle and seeing Dillon’s face with the biggest smile just looking at me! I was so nervous and all the emotions were running through me, but once I saw Dillon I had a warm feeling inside of pure happiness & love!”
The bride-to-be looked stunning in her Nicole Spose ballgown complete with lace bodice and full tulle skirt. She paired her dream dress with nude heels and a delicate gold vine headpiece.
Hailey knew she had found the dress for her as soon as she stepped out of the fitting room. “I tried on about six dresses. My wedding dress was the last one to try on for the day – the moment I stepped out to see what it would look like, I knew this was the dress for me! I cried. It fitted my body so well. I didn’t feel uncomfortable – if anything, I felt like me and that was the most important thing for me.”
When asked for her advice on how to prepare for your wedding, Hailey suggests asking for help when you need it. “Weddings can be a stressful time for couples. I had to plan our wedding when my partner was away for work for 7 months, so don’t be scared to ask for help and get ideas from other people.”
She also urges couples to reflect their personalities in their wedding. “Remember this day is about you guys! Show it in your wedding with what you love the most! For us it was food, music and a great atmosphere! So we wanted to show all three to our loved ones and friends.”
“Things may not go to plan but that’s the beauty of it, because something else will be around the corner, which will be way better than what you had planned. Your guests will never know if something didn’t go to plan because they didn’t plan it – you did!” Explains Hailey.
Following their gorgeous Maleny Manor wedding, the newlyweds set off for their honeymoon in Japan! “We started off snowboarding and then went around the major cities. Seeing snow for the first time was a magical thing! By far my favourite holiday ever!” She said.
The couple are eager to see what the future holds for them both. “We are so excited to find out what happens next, because we have no idea! We love to travel and enjoy the little things with our family and friends. For us, we are excited to see what happens with our new lives being husband and wife.

The pair first met at the gym where Mikaela was a member and Nick was a personal trainer. Mikaela recalls her first sighting of her now, husband fondly, “When I first noticed him I made a comment to Mum about how good looking he was. She joked, saying I should book a session with him and that’s exactly what I did!”
That session clearly went well, as the two hit it off and we’re now sharing their wedding!
Nick cried tears of joy as beautiful bride, Mikaela headed down the aisle to reach him. This was her favourite moment of the day.

Natalie & Carl’s bright natural wedding was held along the rolling hills of Maleny. The couple’s venue of choice was Weddings at Tiffany’s due to its amazing scenery and modern finish. With picturesque views and a perfect day, their nuptials were simply stunning from start to finish.
Natalie looked so gorgeous in her Olbia gown by Pronovias. This is a fresh off-white fitted crepe gown with lace cap sleeves and a lace back topped off with a 1-tier lace-trimmed veil. In addition to her show-stopping gown, Natalie oozed effortless style with bombshell waves, bronzed goddess makeup and super cute pearl drop earrings.
Her chic personal style trickled into all of the couple’s wedding styling elements. A lush green and bright white colour palette was a beautiful choice. This covered everything from the bridesmaids’ muted green dresses to a simple table-scape featuring white elements with organically styled florals. As a result, the overall vibe of this gorgeous wedding was fresh and relaxed.
