    Romantic luxe was on Sophie’s mind when planning her special day and we are in love! Hundreds of blush and white roses, a mixture of candles and fairy lights, paired with golden decor and luxe cocktails – we couldn’t take our eyes off this week’s White Lily bride Sophie and husband Jake’s images. With help from the couple’s vendors, their vision was brought to life: “My wedding planner, florist & caterer were most important. All of these vendors did the most amazing job and I couldn’t have been happier!

    After meeting through mutual friends in Queensland’s Bundaberg, Jake proposed to Sophie at their family’s beach house in Agnes Waters. Originally, Jake had planned to surprise her with a helicopter ride to heart reef; however, Mr Covid forced Jake to whip out plan B and ask Sophie to be her wife in a slightly different setting. Despite Covid’s impact on Jake’s proposal plans, the Queensland couple’s wedding wasn’t affected by the pandemic: “We were so thankful that we didn’t have to change our date. The week leading up to our wedding all restrictions were dropped. We were so lucky!” Celebrated on private property, Jake and Sophie’s special day was truly magical. 

    Sophie’s Favourite Memories

    With the planning and day going by so fast, Sophie particularly remembers “Walking down the aisle with my dad and seeing my husband at the other end – This was such a special moment!” Sophie also appeals to other brides, who are currently planning their wedding, and advises to take it all in: “Try and enjoy all of the planning & preparation even though it may be stressful! Time flies!”

    It’s All About The Sparkle

    The star-studded designer gown Constellation by Atelier Pronovias is a true showstopper and tied in perfectly with Sophie’s romantic and luxe wedding theme. The snowflake tulle on our Atelier gown is truly unique and exactly what Sophie was looking for: “The sparkle! It was like nothing I had ever seen before. It was so gorgeous and I had so many compliments!” We seriously can’t take our eyes off these photos!

    Future As Mr. & Mrs. 

    Now that the couple has entered their next chapter as husband and wife, Sophie and Jake are excited to see what life has in store for them. The Queensland couple is also over the moon to finally be able to call each other husband and wife.

    Complete the sentence: Being married means getting to spend the rest of my life with my best friend.

  • Dee-Jay & Luke’s Contemporary Country Wedding

      Nothing is sweeter than a good old high school love story, which is why we loved reading about how this week’s White lily bride met her now-husband Luke. After glancing over to one another during their daily year twelve form class, Dee-Jay couldn’t help but feel the sparks. Yet, it wasn’t until the couple graduated, that Luke finally took a leap of faith and asked Dee-Jay out on a date. Eight years have gone by since and here we are!

      A Proposal Under the Lucky Tree

      “We were holidaying in Thailand with some friends. It was our four-year anniversary and instead of having a lovely romantic dinner with just us two, Luke organised dinner with our friends. They let me pick the place to eat, so I ultimately picked one along the beach to have a beautiful view and after dinner, we can walk along the beach. There was one moment when fireworks went off by strangers and I thought that Luke would purpose but once they finished & nothing happened I pushed the thought away and strolled on. Luke said, “let’s get a photo under the lucky tree?” Getting our friends to take photos, they were all in on this. there was nothing special about this tree at all yet once we got under it, Luke kicked a glass bottle. Once he picked it up, I saw there was a little paper scroll inside… As soon as I was reading ‘will you marry me?’ Luke was on one knee in the sand asking me to marry him! I said Yes under some tears when he opened the box the wrong way and the ring fell out. We were glad to find it and have a laugh… four years on and we are FINALLY MARRIED.“

      Contemporary Simplistic Country

      What would a country wedding be without a few too many drinks, a good old boogie, and your favourite crowd? “We aimed for an ultimate party but yet it was our wedding. Relaxed, casual, stress-free, and a whole lot of fun – it was all of that and more. We ate pizza, we drank too much, and danced too hard!“ Dee-Jay and Luke’s wedding day wasn’t only exactly what they imagined, but it was also as stress-free as possible: “Why stress about all the little details of table settings and styling when that doesn’t really matter. Everyone is there to celebrate two people coming together…. whatever happens is meant to be. The less stress you have the more fun you have on your day!” Walking down the aisle with her daughter, Dee-Jay couldn’t have been happier with how her special day turned out.

      How Covid Changed Dee-Jay’s Wedding for the Better

      Who could have known that a global pandemic would change a wedding for the better? Despite the frustration and inconveniences of the unknown, Dee-Jay was able to create a wedding that was even more magical, than previously planned: “Covid has been pleasing for us as we went from a winter wedding to a summer/autumn wedding. It gave me more time to get into the dress, as I ended up falling pregnant three months after I bought my dress. Instead of a grazing table, we had grazing boxes for each couple which was an absolute hit with our guests…” On top of that, Dee-Jay and Luke were able to source vendors, that they didn’t even know about, pre-covid. With businesses upping their Instagram game during the pandemic, Dee-Jay found an array of great vendors online. 

      Dee-Jay’s Dream Wedding Dress

      Although Dee-Jay bought her dream Pronovias dress two years prior to her wedding, our White Lily bride loved it just as much as she did when she first tried it on: “After two years I still loved my dress. It was completely different from what I thought I was going to wear… my dress made me feel soooo beautiful on the day. I loved the bottom of my dress how the tulle made it feel so dreamy and then went into the most beautiful big train…”

      What made your White Lily Couture experience special for you?

      All the staff members are truly amazing and they cater from all different styles to small/big sizes which I love… I had Lisa for my consult and she was absolutely amazing – cannot fault her. You could tell she really cared about you and how you felt in the dress you had on…You could tell she was listening.  I was lucky to buy my dress on the first visit and it was only by chance of seeing it on another bride. Once I tried the same dress on I absolutely fell in love, even Lisa told me this is the dress/style she would have dressed me in if I asked at the beginning of the appointment.

      Life as Mr. and Mrs.

      After over eight years of dating, and four years of planning, Dee-Jay and Luke finally became husband and wife. It is no surprise that the couple was over the moon to finally share the same last name and move onto the next chapter of their lives: “… I don’t know what it is but I love that I get to be a Mrs ‘Ash’ as well as calling my partner husband. . Nothing has really changed as getting married was sealing what we have created over the last 8 years… Planning a wedding has taught me to let go a lot which has helped with married life… love, have fun, and create new memories.

      Being married means coming together as one.

    • Lizzy & JP – A Boho Luxe Byron Wedding

      7th June, 2021 | by
      Modern-Pronovias-Oberon-Bride-Byron-Bay read more

        A boho-luxe theme with a European feel was on this week’s White Lily bride’s mind when planning her wedding in Byron Bay. Upon canceling her original plans of getting eloped in France, Lizzy and JP finally celebrated their love in an intimate and beautiful ceremony at Byron View Farm.

        A Big Apple Love Story

        Imagine looking at the view of New York’s skyline, turning around, and seeing the love of your life on one knee! Lizzy and JP’s proposal story has us dreaming of overseas trips: “JP proposed on a trip to the US in September 2019. He told me he had organised a nice dinner and we caught the ferry over to Long Island NY. We stopped and looked at the view of New York skyline, took some photos etc and then when I turned around he had got down on 1 knee and started saying all these beautiful things, and had organised a professional photographer. Can confirm we were both in tears!

        European Feel

        It is no surprise that travel lovers Lizzy and JP originally planned on getting married overseas. With Covid throwing a spanner in the works, our White Lily couple was determined on bringing the European feel to their new location in Byron Bay: “Since we weren’t able to travel, we were looking for a European feel with a timeless, boho luxe, elegant, fun wedding with a lot of beautiful white, dusty pink and neutral details.” Not only was their special day embellished with beautiful decor, but it was also filled with memories the couple will cherish forever; Lizzy specifically remembers walking down the aisle and having her first dance with her now-husband JP in the rain – so dreamy!

        Complete the sentence: Being married means being loved so much that you always feel safe.

        Lizzy’s Dream Wedding Dress

        A modern minimalist’s dream – Lizzy wore OBERON by Pronovias and absolutely stole the show! Oberon’s minimalist yet elegant mikado fabric made the dramatic train pop, creating the most astonishing silhouette. The button details on the back completed Lizzy’s dream bridal look and made her feel beautiful on her special day. Upon asking what she loved most about her White Lily experience, she reminisces about her Luxe Lounge experience: “We had booked the Luxe Lounge experience and wow it didn’t disappoint! Being able to bring my bridesmaids and my mum to the fitting as well as enjoying some bubbly and treats was so special…The girls were amazing, professional, understanding and so much fun to work with.

        Speaking From Experience

        We love asking our brides for planning advice and often hear the same words: don’t stress over the little details: “Try not to stress over things you can’t control, remind yourself that this day is about you and your other half so just ENJOY every single moment, don’t worry about anyone else and have fun! It will be the best day of your life.

      • Kaitlyn & Lachlan – An Elegant and Minimalist Calile Wedding

        30th March, 2021 | by
        Calile_Hotel_Brisbane_Pronovias_Wedding_Dress read more

          Calling my love my Husband and him calling me his Wife – there’s something special about that title.

          After 3 years of loving each other, this week’s White Lily bride Kaitlyn and husband Lachlan finally said their I do’s during their elegant Cali’ style wedding at the Calile Hotel on James Street, Brisbane.

          The Picture-Perfect Proposal

          Lachlan proposed to me after 3 years of being together on a holiday in Western Australia. We had been on a wine tour of the Margaret River and he asked me to marry him at sunset on a private beach with a cheese and wine picnic.” 

          Wedding Style

          What was originally planned a backyard wedding, turned into the most exquisite, yet simple and elegant ceremony and reception in the City. Their gold and white decor was the perfect finish to the Californian vibe of Kaitlyn and Lachlan’s venue choice. Carefully placed greens along with white orchids and roses added a romantic touch and completed the tasteful and minimalist theme of the day: “We always wanted a simple and elegant wedding with basic formalities to spend more time with our guests.” 

          Standout Vendors

          When planning their wedding, Kaitlyn and Lachlan had to deal with many last-minute changes, due to evolving COVID restrictions; However, luckily, none of their vendors let them down in any shape or form: “The top 4 were The Calile as a whole venue, Kate Dawes floristry, Carly Slade our celebrant and Figtree Photography – these 4 vendors focused on every single detail or our day making for a seamless, stress free and relaxing wedding day for ourselves and our families.

          The Dress

          When Kaitlyn first walked into our bridal boutique, she had a clear vision in mind: “There were so many different styles of gowns at White Lily Couture but I gave a description of who I was and my style and the third dress I tried on was the one – the girls at White Lily listened to who I was and what I wanted out of a wedding dress while still including my Mum and best friend in the experience. I felt like I was the only and most important customer in the shop at that time.” Our White Lily bride fell in love with the minimalist and elegant features of ANTIOPE by Pronovias: “…what I loved most was that it was a timeless style that I’ll always look back on and always love it just as I loved it on our wedding day.

          A Piece Of Advice

          Experience is our best teacher so here is a piece of advice from this week’s White Lily bride: “…the most important thing I learnt is that it doesn’t matter what you do for your wedding, it is a day about love and if you have the ones you love with you the day will be perfect. Our wedding day was about us but it was also our opportunity to say thank you to all the important people in our lives for raising and supporting us up until that day cause now you have your husband/ wife to do that for the rest of your life.

          Complete the sentence: Being married means a life of endless love and support – ultimately too grow old and grey with the one who annoys you the most in life 🙂

        • Cass & Myles – An Industrial Chic City Wedding

          Pronovas_Urban_Brisbane_Wedding_White_Lily_Couture (37) read more

          This week’s White Lily bride Cass and husband Myles’ story goes all the way back to 2010. Starting off as friends, their hearts eventually found to one another, in 2017. Now, just over three years later, the Brisbane couple finally gets to share the same surname.

          The Proposal

          Myles proposed to me at sunrise on the Caloundra headland. We lived together on the Sunshine Coast prior to moving back to Brisbane in 2019, and we would go for walks along the headland every weekend. Myles called in assistance from one of my best friend’s, Larissa, who has the most incredible eye for detail and lives on the Sunshine Coast, and they got to planning. It isn’t out of the ordinary for Myles and I to spend a weekend on the Coast staying at my parent’s apartment, and it isn’t out of the ordinary for us to get up early and go for a walk along the beach. Myles used these facts very much to his advantage! We got up early on the Saturday morning and headed for Caloundra. When we arrived, it took a while for pre-coffee Cass to catch on! Larissa and her husband, Anthony, had beaten us to the headland and set up the most incredible picnic with fairy lights, champagne, photos, and breakfast for two. As we walked down the cliff I clutched onto Myles, cried, and repeated “no” roughly 16 times. Thankfully, this didn’t throw him! Myles proposed, and of course, I said yes! “

          Wedding Style 

          Imagine a rustic warehouse wedding in Brisbane city. A combination of white and copper flower arrangements,  hundreds of candles, antique rugs, exposed red brick, and white fabrics draping from the high ceilings at The Warehouse – This week’s White Lily couple nailed their wedding styling: “…we also wanted our wedding to be different than the usual city wedding, we didn’t want something that screamed we were in the middle of the Brisbane CBD.” Challenge completed! 

           

          Covid Wedding Chaos 

          As many of our brides know, planning a wedding for 2020 came with a LOT of obstacles. Since Cass and Myles’ wedding day was originally planned for the Easter long weekend in April 2020, the Brisbane couple had to cancel their plans only 2 weeks prior to the date. Cass and Myles were only just lucky enough to celebrate their hens and bucks party in the pre-covid world. However, postponing their wedding sadly meant that a lot of their nearest and dearest weren’t able to attend: “Myles’ whole extended family and some of our friends are from Victoria, so they were unable to attend in person and celebrated with us virtually. One of Myles’ groomsmen was stuck in London, and we had other close friends stranded in America, Vietnam, and Amsterdam. My grandmother also passed away in late April, so we were devastated.” Heartbreaking! 

          Vendors – Who Made the Magic Happen?

          With help from their wedding stylist Main Event Weddings, the couple created a truly unique ceremony and reception vibe. Almost as though, Covid wasn’t a thing! All details came together beautifully. Their wedding cake from their “cake making queen”, Marina from Marina Machado Cakes completed the reception and tied in perfectly with their rustic, yet chic styling: “Marina is the most creatively gifted cake maker we have ever come across! Not only did she create the cake of Myles’ dream (a good cake was a high priority for Myles!), but she went above and beyond and surprised us on the day with an additional tier made out of white chocolate and raspberry, a flavour I had mentioned in passing was one of my favourites. What. A. Dream!

          All was captured by their talented videographers Mitch and Chelsea from Mitch Birchall Studios, as well as Paul Bamford from Finch & Oak Photography and Edwina Robertson Photography. 

          The Wedding Dress That Left Everyone Speechless

          As Cass walked into our bridal boutique, she had no clue what she was looking for: “The whole experience at White Lily Couture was easy and comfortable. I had been to two other bridal stores and had felt pressure from their stylists to know exactly what I wanted. When I walked into White Lily Couture for my appointment, I gave the stylist a rough budget, told her I had no idea what I wanted, and we went from there! She had me try on all sorts of dress styles to rule out what I didn’t like and to rule in what I felt comfortable in. My bridesmaids and I had a lot of fun, and a sneaky champagne or two! When I walked out of the change room in my Pronovias gown, the girls fell silent. We all knew we had found the winner! I then got my Mum on FaceTime, and the deal was done.

          Bride’s Advice

          You do you! Many people will offer advice/input/tips in the lead up to your wedding, and majority of this comes from a loving place and from wanting to help. However, this can be really overwhelming. Once you learn to politely say “thank you for your input, I will take it on board” and then go ahead and do what you want, planning a wedding becomes infinitely easier. Also, a budget! Make a budget! Make a spreadsheet! Pretend you’re going to stick to it!”

          It’s easy to get caught up in flower arrangements and place cards, but when you take away all of that – what’s left is love! Love for your partner, love for your family and friends.

          A wedding is all about love and that’s exactly what this week’s White Lily bride India wanted to focus on when planning her special day. 

          Styling

          White flowers, subtle decor, and a crepe dress that took everyone’s breath away. Simplistic beauty was on India and Nathan’s mind when planning their intimate wedding day. India wanted to ensure that the focus was on the couple only and reflected their love for each other. Shared with only their closest friends and family, our White Lily bride’s choice of minimal and thoughtful decor was beyond stunning and created a truly magical day.

          A LinkedIn Love Story 

          Before we jump into the Brisbane couple’s favourite memories of their big day, let’s talk about how they met. Who would have thought that a job platform could deliver far more than just a career? India was scrolling through her LinkedIn to find a post-grad research connection, as she stumbled across Nathan’s profile: “…he was so handsome and studying at the same university as me. We talked back and forth casually for a while and went on a date and the rest is history!

          Key takeaway: Your LinkedIn profile picture does matter, ladies and gents! 

          A Day To Remember

          With a day filled with so much love and warmth, hearing about India’s favourite part of the day had us in awe:  Being up at the altar and looking at Nathan and feeling like it was only the two of us in the room. We each wrote personal vows so hearing them, holding his hands and feeling so in love in that moment was probably the most memorable part.”

          The Dress

          Ivania by Pronovias Atelier is timeless minimalism personified. It is crafted entirely in silk crepe and completely steals the show with its luxurious finishes. As India walked into our Brisbane boutique she was looking for a wedding dress that allowed her to shine: “I loved that it was classic and allowed my personality to shine. I didn’t want a dress that would wear me.” Captured by the talented Megan Kelly, we could not get enough of India’s wedding photos. She looked absolutely breathtaking in her dream gown. 

          India’s White Lily Couture Experience

          I was actually running a little late for the appointment but the girls were SO understanding and treated me like I was the only person in the store – they let me try on so many gowns and encouraged me to try different styles to see what I liked.

          Something To Learn…

          Getting married in 2020, India and Nathan weren’t spared from Mr. Covid. The Brisbane couple ended up changing their wedding date from June to November. By the time the wedding came around, they just had to deal with minor dance restrictions. Despite the stress of planning a wedding during uncertain times, our White Lily bride India was able to focus on what’s most important: “Just remember why you’re marrying this person. Also, get in writing vendor’s Covid policies, should you have to reschedule or cancel, before booking them!   

          To Our Future! 

          Starting their journey as Mr. and Mrs., India and Nathan can’t wait to purchase their first home on the southern Gold Coast and to expand their family beyond their “two fur babies”. So much love for these two!

        • Jordyn & Jordon – A Colourful Queensland Wedding

          One thing is for sure, White Lily bride Jordyn and husband Jordon’s wedding day is one to remember. Starting with their oh-so fitting names, their picture-perfect day was gorgeous in every way. Colourful details and tasteful decor, made this week’s White Lily bride and her guests have an unforgettable day. 

          And just like their wedding day, the way Jordyn and Jordon met was unique and sweet. You know we love a good high school love story, so we were beyond excited to hear that these two lovebirds met all the way back in 2013. The Queensland couple had been going to the same school for years and eventually bonded during their exchange trip to Japan. Inseparable since, Jordyn and Jordon finally became hubby and wifey, seven years later. 

          Being a Covid-bride means overcoming obstacles, which is why the Brisbane couple had to postpone their wedding day by six months. Yet, rescheduling their celebrations couldn’t stop them from eloping on their original date: “We loved our original date so much that we decided to elope with just our mums and celebrant.” What a great way to keep your original wedding date! 

          The Dress
          She came, she saw, she fell in love with ERMIN by Pronovias. Our gorgeous ERMIN gown arrived as part of our 2019 collection and Jordyn instantly fell in love with its details, quality, and uniqueness. “My White Lily gown was comfortable, flawless and such stunning quality. I loved that I could add sleeves to make my dress slightly more me. It looked absolutely magical and I couldn’t have loved it more!” Adding the sleeves to her dress completed her vision and gave Jordyn a custom look, that truly photographed incredibly. 

          Jordyn’s piece of advice to future brides
          “Don’t take it too seriously – enjoy the process and try not to get too caught up in pleasing everyone else!“

          Jordyn and Jordon are now ready to tackle their future as husband and wife and can’t wait to start a family together.

        • Real Bride Revolution x Mediterranean Styled Session

          11th January, 2021 | by
          diversity bridal photoshoot read more

          Inspired by our Real Bride Revolution diversity campaign, we created a styled bridal shoot, which allowed us to showcase our dresses in a diverse and modern way. We finished up on a high and were absolutely stunned by the beautiful outcome.

          Real Bride Revolution

          So let’s start off with a short recap and talk about what inspired this shoot. The White Lily Real Bride Revolution stands for diversity, self-love, and self-acceptance. Although finding ‘The One’ is mostly perceived as a positive experience, we knew that the bridal industry needed a change! Unfortunately, designers often don’t take all body types into consideration, when taking their stock images or posting to Social Media. Too often we get sent images, that don’t show any sense of diversity, whatsoever. We’re all different. We’re all beautiful. So why not show our beauty in different shapes on Social Media?

          Concept

          Given the above, we wanted to create a concept that showcased the beauty of real women.

          Hence, when planning this styled shoot, we approached Tarah, Caitlin, Gill, and Cassandra, who had already experienced the White Lily experience as part of our Real Bride Revolution. Each and every one of these girls was beautiful in their own way, which made this photoshoot so special and added a sense of realness.

          We were also beyond excited to be working with Lauren Olivia Photography, who had already created the most magical outcome for our last Gabbinbar Homestead Styled Shoot earlier this year. Lauren’s wedding photography is bright, beautiful, and exactly what we envisioned for our Real Bride Revolution; and she most definitely knocked us off our feet with this one!

          Styling

          To ensure that the colour palette and mood of the shoot would complement the dresses, without distracting from the girls’ beauty, we decided to go for a modern Mediterranean and French Riviera vibe. We envisioned a location with a variety of greens and whites. When we came across Next Door Espresso in Burleigh Heads, Gold Coast, we instantly knew that their café would be the perfect location for our campaign. It was bright, versatile, modern, and everything we had hoped for.

          The flowers were provided by Brittany from My Little Flower Shoppe, and combined bright and blush pastels with modern dried florals. Just stunning! We also incorporated a mixture of jewellery from The Bridal Shoppe as well as Xennox Diamonds. Adding different tones of gold and mixing silvers and pearls, created a modern and versatile look.

          Everything came together beautifully once all pieces were combined. The set-up of the shoot complemented each other in every possible way. All in all, It was a magical day and we were extremely grateful to work with some of the most beautiful people in our industry.
